Welcome another NEWB! Jeff from Houston

Please allow me to introduce myself as an SLKworld newb.

I drive the brother to the slk...... an 04clk55 which is getting some kleemann goodies as I write this. Wife drives a stock c63 dd.

lurking over the past few weeks it appears you guys have a serious following of the SLK, and are NOT afraid to mod them and drive them!

Cheers,
Jeff Houston

Any Houston area SLK people hit me up for track days (1/4 miles or autocross)

Hmmm, entertaining plan! Welcome to the forum from London via Houston! :-)

I'm stateside for the next month or so, and will be in Houston the week of the 10th, so maybe we work on getting a meet together!

Would love to get a group together and hit HRWP with my new mods.
CLK is getting kleemann blower/headers/PTE Cams/P/P heads/tune...... hoping to knock down an 11.xxx time with drag radials.

John, would be nice if a mini meet happened. My humble garage always welcomes good looking cars.

Also, TWS has a track weekend Jan 15-16 and slots will start filling after the first. Open for beginner to pro for $295 which includes an instructor.
