    You get too concerned with others. A s/c E55 will hand you your ass on the strip. On a road course? You'll hand him his...

    no one can be a Jim - It takes years of practice and dedication - I am in line for learning some of his experiences in VII day.

    But with the maggie I could keep up with E55 and probably would have taken him even on the straights

    I've been looking for an E55 and E60 M5 to run for a while now. I bet I'd be damn close.

    My car is deaed even with a stock SRT-10 Viper.

    Damn close? I would hope with all that stuff you have done to your V that you could take em. I don't keep up with the foreign stuff much. Those things aren't as fast as a viper are they?

    My pops has an 05 E55 and we have run a few times getting on the freeway on ramp. It isn't close. Those cars pull like no other. 469hp and 520tq pretty much takes the Caddy out of contention. I do agree that on a road course it is another story. A bone stock 04-06 E55 has been known to break into the 11's in the 1/4.

    I have raced E55's, E63's and M5's and beaten them all. The maggie is your best friend...

    Re: Mercedez E55 vs V

    I am betting my experience is just the luck of the draw but I have taken down 2 different E55s from a dig around my stomping grounds. Although I think they were spinning much harder off the line then I was. So it could have just been luck of the driver.

    If you don't have a maggie/NOS, I don't think you're going to have a chance. I have an over-spun maggie and I don't anticipate an easy time with those cars--they are pretty fast & fairly easy to modify (last I left off, there were 3 common upgrades/stages, with stage III being 10-11 second 1/4 mile fast.)
