    race w/c32 amg, your thoughts

    Soon i plan to race an c32 amg that is completely stock. It will be from a stop to sixty m.p.h. in a safe environment. I need to know my chances and your thoughts.
    my mods:

    running on stock wheels and tires
    UP/DP
    Lightned Crank Pulley
    Boostvalve @ 17psi.
    110 Octane (can i turn the boost up at all?)

    Please give me your feedback. i may decide to get a UTEC next year before racing him.

    If you turn the boost up any higher, you'll hit the boost cut.

    You should be able to beat him anyway.

    You want to pump them up pretty good. I'd say 40psi all the way around.

    You should beat him pretty easily from 0-60 due to the fact that they are automatics and heavy. But don't try anything that is from a roll or at speed. 350hp is nothing to laugh at when you can trap 105mph in 1/4 mile.

    what should my sixty look like now? The amg has been run at 4.5 by some magazine, and 5.2 advetised by mercedes. They always say higher numbers though. So its definitely quick.

    I'd guess your 0-60 at about 4.5 as well, but it's just a guess.

    2nd gear and 3rd gear these Supercharged AMGs are pretty fast.

    I don't think you'll have trouble beating him off the line though. Do keep us posted!

    mid 13 sec car, I think you will have your hands full. They really are not that far off from the performance an E46 M3 has.

    they have a lot of pick up in the top end. i would hand it to him without a doubt if going to quarter mile speeds. But this is to 60 so im thinking i have a chance.
