Hello everybody,
Joining here following the replacement of my beloved W203 track build with a banana-yellow R170 M111 car after the C-class was totaled by a jeep.

The car has a Kleemann boost kit and K-Sports, though I blew the "like new" K-Sports the previous owner has supposedly just installed at Lime Rock yesterday.

Already have questions, so I'm looking forward to being a part of this community!

-Danny

If pictures are desired, pictures there will be!

See Banana below, and ignore the missing center caps on my Raderwerkz in the second picture...took the car on track with them on like a goon, melted them clean off.

I'll be honest, this is a double-duty car; track when I can, daily driver on the flip side. A tricky line to walk, but I'm veeeery neurotic with my maintenance. The car came second in class in C-Street autocross two days after I bought it on all-seasons, and a week later ran a 1:17 at Lime Rock despite a boost cut issue and blown K-Sports (my line onto the No-Name may have accelerated that a bit though; pesky curb ;)

Great to see another track SLK, I was beginning to think that they were all cruisers here not that there's anything wrong with that. My theory is that SLK's make such great cruisers that the thought is they can't possibly be tweaked to be a decent track car. Keep the updates coming and welcome to the forum.
