    • Weistec built supercharged CLK63 AMG Black Series sets new M156 1/4 mile record and is the world's fastest Mercedes

      We knew it was only a matter of time before Weistec took the M156 record. Not only did Weistec raise the bar for the M156 63 AMG motors with this record setting 1/4 mile pass, the overall fastest Mercedes record previously held by Renntech's SLR at 142 miles per hour was surpassed as well. The owner of the CLK63 Black Series (BenzBoost member ecampbell) managed 10.2@144 in California summer heat at the Auto Club Speedway in Pomona (Fontana) California.

      The record pass was run with the car putting out 837 horsepower at the wheels (graph to be posted in separate article). Air temperature was around 100 degrees and the density altitude calculations are just under 4000 DA at 3934 feet above sea level. This means in the winter this is an EASY 9 second car approaching the 150 miler per hour mark. Regardless, it is still the World's Fastest Benz even when running in 100+ degree California summer heat.

      We wish to congratulate all involved. Definitely not an easy task to take the M156 motor to this level and reach the top level in aftermarket Mercedes performance. Weistec should be proud of their achievements with this platform and we know owner ecampbell must be thrilled. The fact there is even more in the car in better weather when already surpassing all others is simply icing on the cake. Well done gentlemen, well done.

        they are not similar conditions moron. Oh and did you forget to mention that Earl is making 837RWHP. Eissa is making 550-580 RWHP. He ran an 11.0 @ 100F

        Earl is making nearly 300 RWHP more. I know he posted a temp of 99F, but accoriding to dragtimes yesterday @ 6:30 Pm, Temp was 93.

        So your going to make fun of Earl now?

        "Best Engineered" for sure !

        Earl congrats man that thing was going like a bat out of hell once you hooked up. I like your drag setup, it actually looks pretty damn good for a dedicated drag setup. What have you done to the suspension ?

        I was annoyed to see that. I'm not sure exactly why either but someone here made a very poor choice to hit that button. I rarely give neg reps. When I do it's either a spammer or someone with a very poss-poor attitude. In that case, I admit to it on my own will and I have done that openly plenty of times.
        There were a few times where I wasn't sure who neg repped me, but I have managed to find out anyway and I'm confident that I'll find out who did it this time and they'll learn that what goes around comes around with a vengeance.
