    Thumbs up I went down hard, but it was sooo worth it...SL55 rocks

    Let me start by saying I was never delusional enough to even consider being able to win this race

    I was pulling out of a 7-11 last night when I saw an SL55 fly by. All black, black wheels with chrome lip, and at least an exhaust. No plates yet.

    I decided to follow

    He slows to make a left, as do I. Very secluded street. I kinda get on the gas to see what he'll do. And then he goes all out...man that blower is loud.

    He satrted pulling on my right away (we started from like a 40mph roll). Once we hit 80 though, he left me like i was stranding still...by 110mph he was probably 7 or 8 cars in front of me...

    wish i had video.

    Edit: I'm at 300whp/300wtq.

    LOL, understand your experience. Was on the way home late one night and had a guy zipping from light to light. Each time it made me think dayem, so that's what it's like to have a fast car. It seemed to just keep pulling.

    That's a good death! I would've done the same just to see how badly I'd get beat. You have respectable numbers and that thing still left you in the dust... what do they run in the 1/4 mile anyways? I'd assume low 12's??

    I had a similar race with a C5 Corvette when I had my WRX Wagon. I hung with it till about 50mph and then the Vette pulled on me as if I was parked. Hw was spinning his tires all the way through 1st and 2nd gear too. He hit third and walked away from me.

    I'm really suprised at that. What turbo do you have. I thought they trapped at around 112mph. If so I would expect to more than hang w/it...Huh. Interesting.

    Actually those cars are very fast, i know that they will trap over 116, some i think have traped as high as 120 if im not mistaken. My friend has one. He took me for a ride, and the thing was just too fast. He cant even drive that car if there is any rain, its all over the place, even with the traction control. Nevertheless, its a bad bad car, bad in a good way!

    pick up about 50 more whp, and you should be able to keep up , or slightly pull one. They seriously are no joke, they are just as fast as the new E55 benz's, and those have clocked in 12.0's@120. AMG is not playing games.

    You guys gotta start ****ing around with 50 trims I swear


    Leave the VF's alone, get some 720CC injectors, and run 20++++ Psi off a 50 Trim, you will see the light, and then blow past it....
