My car: 2001 E55 AMG 155k miles stock
His Car: 2007 Chrysler SRT-8 30k miles
Running track lows of 13.7 @ 103 mph and highs of 14.3 @ 100 mph - short ram intake & sticky street legal tires.
You can see his runs here:
A good friend of mine is convinced he will beat me in a quarter mile drag, so much so that he is putting money up to bet.
I honestly have considered a lot of factors, between the Las Vegas 95 degree weather and the altitude, previous e55 track times, current state of my vehicle with 155k miles, tires, intakes, bolt on's.
My engine is running great, new motor mounts, lots of power in the throttle, just did full synth oil change recently, its a well maintained vehicle.
I would LOVE everyone's opinion on this and where you think I stand in this race.
Midnight Mayhem will be on the 17th of August, 2012. This is where we will meet to get official track times, and to handle our grudge race.
As of right now, the only thing I think I need to beat him, is 93 octane, and some street slicks. I'm doing the xpipe mod with res del and 2nd cat del, stock muffler, before the race also. Looking to run 13.5 and ill be happy.
