Englishtown & AMG Challenge Results and pics....Long

Sorry This is late folks...it's been a busy day.

I want to thank all who showed up form both forums, the M.B. and M5 forums. Thanks for all the people who made it fun and Hope to see you all again real soon.

I'm going to post the pics below each caption. Just click on the picture to view it.

Here goes.
First of all, the AMG challenge was met. They showed up with some heavy Iron. 2 new E55's including Rave, but he didn't race, and Rick(5439cc)showed up with his CLK 55.

The competition was stiff. The E55 was sick sick sick

It ran a 12.6 at 111 mph
The car still had a temp in the window. The guy, who's anme escapes me, and I apologize.He said he's waiting for the Renntech pullies and reprogram and exhaust.
That's gonna make that car sick.

Now for our team. We had Me, Wayne's Dinan S2 and Alex5, and Sharif, and MikeNJ. Here are the pics for our team

There was a couple of our other members who showed up but didn't race. Here are their pics.

Here's more of Sean's Ruf

Here's another beast that just came to watch. My friend Rehan's Maranello.

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/...f/fad64b0d.jpg

More of the Ruf...gotta love that thing
http://www.imagestation.com/picture/...f/fad64be3.jpg

O.K. Now you guys are warmed up. Here were the track conditions.
http://www.imagestation.com/picture/...f/fad64be3.jpg

It wouldn't be a meet if Dave Zeckhausen weren't there. Thanks Dave for the moral support.
http://www.imagestation.com/picture/...6/fad64adb.jpg

The Racing was good, but that E55 was an animal. He ran a 12.6 at 111 MPH. We got toasted. My best was a 13.2 at 107 and MikeNJ ran a 13.1 STOCK
I drove Mike's M5 and it feels like the fastest stock M5 I ever drove.Mike, you got a great platform from which to start some mods buddy

Here are some more pics of all of us doing our thing.(RACING )

O.K. here's some more odds and ends shots of the E55

Now the time slips. Sad to say, Me and Mike NJ were holding up the fort. Mike did 13.1 and I got 13.2. Wayne's Dinan S2 only did 13.6 best time and Alex5 did a 13.4. Best time.Sharif, post your pics and slips. WINNER of the day was the E55 with a ground scorching 12.6.



Here are some pics.
http://www.imagestation.com/picture/...b/fad6443e.jpg
The Neon SRT4 can run mid 13's all day long

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/...9/fad64400.jpg
You can imagine my suprise when I ligned up with this old Buick and he bounced on me at the line. I got 'em though. A 13.4 to my 13.2 :p

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/...5/fad643c5.jpg
My final time slip....13.2 @106.9 MPH.....Not bad. Better than the Dinan car though

Here's some more pics and a write up from the M.B Boys. Rick, you're a true gentleman and I look forward to selling you a BMW

http://forums.mbworld.org/forums/sho...threadid=54507

Once again, thanks to everyone who showed up and If any of the guys who were there, please feel free to post your time slips and pics you may have.MikeNJ, has his time slips and RickCLK 55(5439cc)
Alex5 has his time slips and I know the Benz boys have theirs.
Great showing and hope to do it again next spring.

GREAT report and pics. I love that Ruf Sean just put an M5 emblem on that black thing and toast the E55 AMG

I'd say 13,1 is a great time form a M5, good work

E55 AMG guys. wait until next autumn with V-10 power

Thanks Gustav, but I have some new mods in the works for my beast over the winter that will make the E55 look slow

The spring can't come soon enough

This was fun. Never been at 1/4 mile track "competing". First run with tires at 45 pressure!!!!!! That was interesting. Next time got better, actually end speed was 107.2, not bad for Dinan 1. Didn't burn the clutch, but spinned the wheels a lot. I was blown away 3 times by Supra at 11.4-11.5 and end speed of 121.79. Beaten by Manny too!!! Well, some more octane, good tire pressure and little longer on the clutch, lets see next time. I guess despite my lack of experience, there is no lack of enthusiasm. My next post.... when I'm under 13. and under 170lb.
AMG, no wheel spin, how about that. No comment. My stealth beast over any AMG, any time, except on the track I guess.
Crowd was great. But nothing without Manny!

Thanks for the photos. It is nice to see so many M5s on the drag strip. I really like seeing M5 owners use their cars to the fullest.

Cheers.

It was great seeing everyone again.
Unfortunately I ran some really bad numbers. Sorry for letting you guys down My fastest time of the night was 14.06. I dont usually make excuses but... I will blame this poor showing on my tires

I think its time I start doing some modifications to this car.
Anyone hiring ??

Cant wait for the spring time
