Spot on Steve.



Thanks Vinney. People change bonnets, trunks, exhaust etc to save 10-20kgs, I could only imagine how my car would feel weighting 130kgs less.
I know when I have 2 or 3 passengers it makes a hell of a difference.




Do what Pavo's done, he tried to lose some kgs of the gut but to no prevail so he just bought himself a carbon fiber bonnet.
Edwin, you have set the bar really high with what you have achieved with your mods. The power mods you make to a coupe and vert will be the same on the dyno, but on the road those mods will have a greater effect on the lighter car. eg. adding 50kw to a 1500kg car vs 50kw to a 1600kg car will vary. So for your car to run 11s already, just makes me wonder how far ahead you would be in the coupe!

I'll bring a bone stock 6.2 AMG to WSID tomorrow night that will keep up with a modified 135 over a 1/4 mile if you're keen for a friendly run You modify one of those AMG's and its night and day with the AMG miles ahead.

A stock one will trap in the 116-118 mph range as has been proven on this board. There is only Justin's 135 locally that traps higher.

The 135's and N54s are awesome bits of kit, but it doesn't really make sense to compare stock to modified does it?
My point precisely. Even a lightly modded C63 will stomp all over the N54.

Don't you hate it when someone comes along and settles a perfectly good meaningless argument.

Buy a combi then , since when does track car = comfortable family truckster?


ok ok, here's another option then, 11.7 quarter at 195km/h



you can pick up a used car for $70k + Turbo and bang, you have a very potent mid engined track car.

I'd love a turbo Cayman but I think others have found it a little more complicated than that.
i.e. bits of drivetrain breaking and widebody needed to get enough rubber down.
