ok, so tinight i get made fun of by 19 year old girl driving around in mommy and daddy's $$$ ... didnt get a good look but it's either a mercedes c230 kompressor, or c320... none the less, i will assume its the 320 as it has 215hp/221ft/lb at the crank as the other is less with the supercharged inline four at 189hp/192ft/lb, so im giving her the benifit of the doubt, assuming its the c320... she weighs 3385 bone stock(this car was bone stock other than tampons in the glove box and such) she challenges me to a race... its 1am, im not in the mood i wanna go to bed, so we set a date... we're gonna make a run. i have a '93 del sol b18c jdm... weighing in at about 2250lb race trim(sans subs and amps and such) as we know this is about 180hp/129ft/lb... assuming i turbo at 7-8psi(this is in the works very soon) let me know if im crazy but should put me up around 250hp crank... maybe a bit more, im trying to be conservative here. and im not sure but maybe around 200 ft/lb... am i crazy to say that it may be a close race with me on my gsr swap? i think kinda close... i told her that i will be turbo by the time we run... she says "hahaha, ill walk your a$$ b!tch". NOW assuming all of that... heres what i have come up with...

 

Mercedes c320 (six speed)

hp 215

tq 221

lb 3385

lb/hp 15.74

lb/tq 15.31

 

'93 del Sol si b18c swap, msd full ignition, exhaust, vafc (tuned), poly mounts, centerforce clutch

hp 180

tq 129

lb 2250-2230

lb/hp 12.77

lb/tq 17.8

 

'93 del Sol si b18c swap (same mods) 7-8psi boost safely

hp 250

tq 200

lb 2300-2350

lb/hp 9.40

lb/tq 11.75

 

... NOW call me crazy, it may be close as i sit now... however i am absolutly positave that i am a better driver as she sped off granny draggin the clutch... and in my opinion it wont be even close nomatter who drives my car if im runnin boost...

 

i would really like anyones input... i am turboing anyways... just wondering what your thoughts are assuming shes runnin the c320 with mine either stock and boosted...let me know your opinion either way. I THINK SHES CRAZY!

i work for mercedes and drive them all day.

 

basically, any mercedes that isn't an AMG model is a POS. the handling, unless it's a C32 AMG, is very flimsy, fluffym crapty, like most luxury cars.

 

if you want a race go race the E63 or CL 55, or S600

well yeah mercedes auto trans are much better at shifting at redline with the autostick rather than just letting it try and do it itself.

 

i bet she just put the pedal to the floor and the trans fracked up...

yep

 

way to keep it on the track man. i think once you boost, you easily got it if shes got the c320. if she has the 230 i think you got it without the boost

go race an AMG 65. hmmm now thats a pretty car.

 

who cares if you have boost or not. if your so worried about it get it over with and see where your car stands against hers. if you lose, fix your car from being slow and do it again lol. if u plan a race like that ur just gona get ur self all psyched out and lose neways. shoulda done it when she was talkin crap. lol

The next time you see her make sure you have the targa top off and tell her since you're going topless if she really wants to race.....and to make it fair....that she has to go topless too.

 

 

w00t

 

 

But ya gotta say it kinda "007" style or she might go psycho on you.
