First off, Jackie chan is usually listed at 5'8", an inch under the average US height, and his muscle mass is DEFINITELY higher...I wouldn't call that tiny.and isnt that GT500 KR weight heavier than our slk ? remember JET LEE OR JACKIE CHAN MOVIES, they are both small and tiny lil asian ppl but they kick ass and fast....
I lost to one GT350 (an original from like 1968) way back when I had a Laser Turbo (my first "sporty" car) in 1985. I didn't like that taste one bit & promptly sold it & got brand new red Mustang GT 5.0. That car was pretty quick back in its time - now my familly car would just about hang with it :rb.I've raced a couple of them and they are pretty stout. I didn't loose.
oh, I wasn't driving the SLK either.. lol.
Most of the mustang guys (ones with s/c) take them from the show room to the garage and pulley them down. Then they're close to 500 at the wheels. For them, it's $80 for a pulley. no brainer there.
My car is 600 lbs lighter, hence not much of a problem.
Its fairly sprite with 490 rwhp, 534 rwtq, & the 7 spd tranny but it's a little porky at 3,400 lbs (but it's safe, my RX-7 feels like the 2,700 lbs Pepsi can that it is - I get hit in that thing & I swear I'm a dead man...it goes like a scalded dog though :burnout.Daymn Mat.. your SLK must be stout! Those terminators aint no slouch!
and no. they don't handle that well.
