    Mercedes CLK550 kill

    Interesting dream I had involving fictional characters and make believe street racing....

    After a week or two without finding a good race, I finally had a good little run yesterday.

    Sitting at the stoplight on a 4 lane road, a middle aged guy pulls up beside me in his (very new looking) CLK550 convertible. Sharp looking car. At the time, I couldn't really tell what I was getting into because I'm far from being able to distinguish one Mercedes convertible from another (without seeing the rear end). The one thing that I was perfectly aware of is that the right lane the guy was sitting in ends in about 400 yards.

    The light turned green and I was slow to respond. Never fear, our friend in his Mercedes took off light a bolt of lightening. I immediately got to see his rear (great time to identify the car as a CLK550) and I pressed into the throttle. I was surprised that I was able to control the wheelspin pretty well up until I hit WOT around 4,000 rpm. By the top of first, I'd stopped his pull and gained a bit of ground when I banged second (despite the fact that the shift was followed abruptly by more wheelspin). I ran hard through second and we were dead even and I started pulling well by the time I shifted into 3rd. I tached up through most of third and put a little more space on him and we both shut it down (because he had to merge over to the left lane and didn't stand a chance of getting in front of me even with a fly by and I wasn't particularly interested in blasting down the road at a higher speed).

    All in all it was a pretty nice kill. I suspect my friend in his sharp looking $64K ride thought he wouldn't have any trouble pulling by a $18K domestic sports car! He was sadly mistaken. I can only imagine what was going through his mind when I was screaming through at WOT with the cutout open.....probably thinking about what a nightmare our cars are from an emissions standpoint! HAHA! I came home and pulled up the specs on the CLK550.....not too shabby!

    Very true.....an SL63 would've likely resulted in a different outcome! HAHA!
