Noticed all MB supercharged and turbocharged models have 5 speed transmitions.V8SLK said:dan, would a supercharger likely void the warranty on the transmission, rearend, etc since the increased hp puts additional load on drivetrain component?
Ah sorry mate but your right best wait until the warranty kisses you goodbye before doing any major mods like that cause you will have to foot the bill should anything go wrong.V8SLK said:i guess the supercharger will have to wait until the warranty expires. almost makes me sad that i bought the extended warranty.
I agree i do find they spin up very quickly like you say once you know whats coming your fine but if your new to the game you should expect to be doing some driving using your rear windshield in TC cars since it all tends to arrive in one big lump.My biggest concern, while doing the local track stuff i've been doing in the recent year or so. the TC porsches tend to be touchy just at the moment you don't want it to be. I've seen endless guys spin out in TC cars on the tracking out of a corner as there flooring the power. I make so much distance in that area as I know exactly the amount of power I'm getting and can apply it precisely. guess its all something you can learn. and on the street its really not that much a concern unless you cruise round corners on the edge of your grip.
