My name is Corbin, I live in Charlotte NC and I have a 2006 SLK55 I'm in the process of turning into a widebody race car. I'm looking forward to what I will learn on this site and the people I'll meet here.

Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.

Welcome Corbin!
How's the progress on the widebody going? I've got a lot of information and experience and I'd be happy to share if you share what you've got!
What else are you doing to make it into a racecar? Custom suspension? I'd love to find someone to join me in making some custom suspension arms for the front. Also, looking for chassis brace at the same time. Let me know if you have any leads.
