Cheers Easty. I was looking on the net for some 1/4 mile stats for the 350 and found this from two different car review sites:
This is a seductively sporty engine that accelerates the SLK to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds - 0.2 second quicker than a Nissan 350Z Touring and a whopping 1.5 seconds quicker than the SLK320. Hang on for 13.8 seconds, and the quarter-mile will pass at 103 mph on its way to a redline-limited top speed of 161 mph."
And this off another:
Engine - 3.5-liter 24-valve twin-cam V6
Horsepower - 268
Torque - 258 lb feet
0-60 mph - 5.9 seconds
1/4 mile - 14.1 seconds @ 102 mph
60-0 mph - 126 feet
EPA Mileage - 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway
So the 1/4 mile mark for a 350 is about 14 seconds.
What are arm restraints out of interest? They say that if you're driving a roofless car then you have to wer arm restraints. I want to do a few runs with the hood down to see if there was a difference.
