RT boxes are just like the old AMG bits, modded springs/passages etc..

I think his .XX is just a little off, IIRC, a 3.46 was the most retarded diff one could order.

There were pics of this floating in the forum a year or so ago when she was on Ebay, sure they are in there Somewhere, but finding can be..well....:-P

Yes, the previous owner's name was Brian and the last services were done at Lyle Pearson. I wasn't aware he'd had it on Ebay: I also considered putting it up for auction but thought I'd let Benzworld and the Peaches take a swing at it first. There are high miles on the chassis, but nearly everything which wears has been replaced in the last 8 years including upper and lower control arms (which I thought was odd, but it has a clean carfax). The way it looks and drives is amazing, it's like a 5 year old car.

I'm going to take pictures now, I'll post them in a few hours...

I will post detailed pics of the rear differential ratio stamp as well, I'm not sure of the exact ratio as it is not stated on the Renntech invoice. It cost $3990 and looks the business with massive fins...

Valve lash was adjusted 8000 miles ago.

I ended up washing it instead of getting it on the lift. I will take pictures of the underside of the car tomorrow, if you have any requests I'm happy to take specific pictures...

I made a pdf file of Renntech receipts, etc. but it is too big for this site and photobucket doesn't do pdf's... if you want it please PM me.

The VIN is WDBCA45EXMA603879

I just changed the rear end lube to Redline Heavy Duty Shockproof, it is the strangest looking stuff that I have ever put in a motor vehicle... I also took pictures of the undercarriage, they can be seen at:
