    Well lets see here, put 9k into an f-body and run as fast as you can drive OR 90k into a benz and have your choice of the primest punnany out there.

    I love my f bod, but you just cant argue with prime punnany.

    They are different cars sold to people with bigger bank acounts. It is a 4000+lbs luxo car that can move pretty good too. You pay for what you get.

    That car isn't stock. Mercedes would NOT sell a car with blower whine that prevalent. The New Englanders wouldn't stand for it.

    That track does look like it is going downhill, but it is prolly an optical illusion. The other end is going uphill, which is a good idea b/c it takes less brake force to slow godawful fast cars.

    I heard it again at full volume, that thing has been opened up!

    Almost zero spin on take off? Those cannot be your average OE street tires. No f*ckin way. Or Mercedes has developed the world's best traction control system.

    And who doesnt love a 4 door? So convienent when you are transporting dead bodies, or Christmas shopping. 2 thumbs up. Pretty sweet ride. I will never afford one though.
    It sure would suck to lose a street race to a Luxury car driven by a guy in a suit.

    AsI have posted several times, Mercedes has the worlds best traction control system.

    And for the record, I have raced an E55 at the strip that was on 20" Antera wheels and it still turned a 12.60 and that was at a moderate 2000ft. You guys can deny reality all you want but the fact of the matter is that this car turns 12's from the showroom.

    Huh? I never said a stock one wouldn't run 12's. It should with 450+ HP and 500+ plus TQ.

    I said that the one in the vid was NOT stock, and you can quote me as saying NOW that a stock one will not turn low 11's. You can quote me on that.

    I raced one from a light and those things grab the ground like velcro. I sh8t you not. They pull off the line like a sling shot. There is no way a f body can stick with one. I don't know the traction control they use but its alien technology compared to what GM has. We went out on the highway and from 60 ish rolls he had me 3 outta 4 times by a car or so the other was a tie.

    Those e55's are no joke! Several years ago when I was h/c (only 366rwhp), I raced one on the highway and a stop. He killed me both times. From a roll, their automatics are almost as good as a 6sp. When he floored it, he immediately took off (they have a sport mode), and by the time my car downshifted and started moving out, he was at least 1 full car ahead and pulling hard (past 120). Then when we got to a stoplight, I figured with my soft hitting vertor and his heavy blown car, there would be no way he could get traction from a stop. Well, the first second or so, I hooked better than him, and then floored it. I thought for sure I was set, but then he came flyin by me like I was standing still !! I seriously doubt a bolt on ls1 could take one.

    However, I think a bolt on and cammed 6spd can take a stock one fairly easily.

    Good luck !!

    So has any racing taken place? Or is this just a bunch of talk in the Kill Section?

    no, they actually dont mean the same thing. and all you did was say the same thing i did and worded it differently. so in summary.....suck my cock, and maybe change your name to homo as it should be.

    Talk about homo look at you sig..stupid. Do you look like that in real life too.

    No thanks on the last part. Iam sure all the guys at the gay bar you go to will help you out.

    Well, I suppose if you wanna talk basic english, You get what you pay for does not mean the same thing as you pay for what you get. As for the topic, why wouldn't you believe a 90K mercedes should smoke a pretty much stock f-body?

    Okay then what does each of them mean if they are not the same thing??

    Yes I agree a 90K mercedes would beat a stock f-body. Also depending on which mercedes it was.
