who do you guys think would win if both cars are stock and the carrera s is automatic?
Yes I know, i used to race bikes in the UK, and although we do have many amazing tracks in a close distance. we also have so many people who like to use them.MJawa 55 said:i wich the were many different tracks that i could go to easilly. Thanks easty.
Does modifications (e.g., supercharger) also void MBUSA warranty???MJawa 55 said:i really want get a supercharger but MBUK say that if i do anything to the engine i loose my warranty and any future purchases of a warranty extension, and the other thing i want is the SLK55 black series side wings (vents).
Don't you mean to say. "in terms of reality, the SLK is faster in a straight line?"Car and Driver posted 0-60 times for a Carrera S in the low 4s, like around 4.3 seconds but, the average driver really can't get that time, it requires a lot of tricky footwork, but porsche posts a 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds. So, in terms of reality, the 911 carrera S is faster in a straight line.
I have to agree with DSB, torque wins in this case.Don't you mean to say. "in terms of reality, the SLK is faster in a straight line?"
C&D posted times of 4.3 0-60 for the SLK. Being an automatic, it's not very difficult to get times a few tenths off. I don't know where to look for all the specs but I wonder how well they match up on quarter mile times/trap speed.
You could S/C a SLK55 for <20 Grand and get a performance ECU. It would boost the power up to about 512BHP and 492ft/pds of torque and you could put stiffer springs/shocks on it, and bigger anti roll bars and stickier tires for less than the price of a stock 911 Carrera S. That would lower the 0-60 time to about 3.7 seconds:tu:, my buddies done it, he beat a Lamborghini Gallardo in a straight line race to 150MPH.
