RE: MB for Drag Racing

That ML is insane. That thing has to be putting out atleast 1200HP. Now the real question is, does it get pulled back to the garage by another ML?

The CLK DTM is a track car, it doesn't have the best acceleration in the world, but once it gets going its a rocket!

As for the cars in the pics,... WHY?!?!?[:0]

The best M-B race car in my opinion is the CLK-GTR, they even made 25 road models, 5 of which were soft tops.

RE: MB for Drag Racing

1200 HP??? Pro Mods make a hell of alot more then that! Probably 2500+

Pat Musi runs a Pro Street camaro and it is suppose to be "streetable" It make 1300 on engine and 2400 on the NOS. Those injected blower pro mod motors make at least that,much power maybe more.

The CLK DTM looks nice, but out and out it is no drag racer.
