Here is the one pass I got in last night. The car was heatsoaked as many cars had problems from blowouts, blown tranny, car on fire. So the car never really got a chance to sit but oh well. I raced a SL600 that was owned by a rather young gentleman probably 17-18yrs old. I got out of the hole before him but he was charging hard at the lights as he pulled a 114mph 12.6sec pass. Enjoy the vid.

Maybe his parents are dead and he bought it with the life insurance? I would've rather had an SL55AMG...Over 600 horse, mm mm tasty.

Looks great. And I even got it on dial-up - took a while. Wish you could have gotten more runs, but that one was impressive enough. :)

Doug,

That kid the the Merc had to be slingging dope or had $$$ parents. Those SL600s are fast. Your car sounds great. I think with drags on the back and a more aggressive launch you would have smoked that 600 and in the 12s no problem.

His dad was there and I'm thinking pops was just loaded. He was there in an AMG E55 with nitto's mounted in the back. Probably in his mid 60's with a limp. Seriously. On was pretty conservative on the shifts as well. Even though it didn't sound like it from the wheelspin. I was just trying not to rush each shift knowing those might be the only runs I get.

A SL600 and a AMG E55. I would say he's loaded or maybe he owns a Merc dealership!
