Dear All,

I ve got an SLK 350 and i have noticed that the cars uncontrollable due to the torque and power.

Actually this is not the problem. The problem is that you have got no feeling of that unless is already late. You take no information that rear wheels are going to loose grip.

The wheels are 18in and in very good condition and the only mod is Brabus lowering springs.

Does anybody has the same concerns ?

Thank you

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t already.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your ‘garage’ does not update your ‘profile.

Don’t be shy. Post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. http://www.slkworld.com/new-members-introduce-yourself-here/


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:

I have an 06 SLK350 with standard suspension and 17" wheels and found it to be amazingly stable under all conditions,(despite my best efforts)
I have conisport 3s on the front and 5s on the rear.
Have you driven the car with standard springs?
My old SLK230 used to tramline terribly, this was very unnerving and turned out to be a combination of a worn steering damper and the Falken tyres.
I suggest getting an independent Mercedes specialist to give the suspension and steering a good check over.
It's a real shame it's spoiling your enjoyment, I hope you get it sorted.
