After reviewing the E55AMG boards briefly (thanks for the info Wayne :) ), I decided to post a respectful "challenge" to our E55 AMG brothers.

I have several E55 AMGs, both stock and not-so-stock, that are willing to go out and have some fun with me and my CTS-V.

Note that this is not something that is intended to be a "pissing" match, gloating match, or anything else that could potentially cause hard feelings. Just a couple of guys going out, comparing cars, shooting the sh*t, and having some fun. :) I'm really looking forward to it.

Weather permitting, there is one guy that I have loose plans on meeting this Saturday. Exchange some good PMs with him. I'm pretty much expecting to get my butt handed to me by this guy, as his AMG IS modded and he won't tell me what he has done. I told him I was going to kick his arse if he is putting down 500+ rwtq & he isn't telling me... :D

Actually, I'm almost certain he is. Based on my understanding, those cars stock are putting down about 400-410 rwhp, 440-450 rwtq. I think they only spin to about 6krpm (hence, the lower HP numbers). However, they have these "common" upgrades that add gobs of HP/TQ and 500 seems to be almost easy pickings for them.

I anticipate a great time, even when he kills me.

Now the trouble is finding WHERE to play... :bouncy:

I'm absolutely convinced, however, that I can take a stock E55 AMG. Several nice guys with stock E55s are willing to run with me, so I will keep you guys posted.

CTS-V powah baby!! :cool2:

LOL--the modded one is going to kill me...:)

But there is no way I'm losing to the stock one!!! :D

And yes, reasonable safety is #1 concern. If it's not a straight shot, with few, if any cars around, with great visibility, then it's a no-go; I just won't get involved and I'm very certain that these guys feel the same way.

I'm inquiring now.

Apparently, there is a "Stage I" kit and a "Stage II" kit. I believe these relate to pulley and tune mods, but I'm not sure. I will keep you posted though. :)

LOL--good find WW...

Hey, I guessed right on stage I at least!! :)

Modded, those things are just terrifying.

As such, and like I said above, I'm going to get destroyed by the modded one...lol

The only way to compete with one of those modded E55 AMG would be to see someone like Andy at A&A and let him build you some monster motor for you, at a decent chunk of change, and go from there... :D

Where is this going to take place? I wanna watch! It's fun to watch the 55 Kompressor cars launch, I'd love to see a V launch like that!

Crystal Cove? TONS OF COPS ON PCH! But a good place to drool on cars.

BAH...

Bad weather is probably going to nix the efforts this weekend.

I will have to get my butt kicked by some 500+ rwtq E55 AMG another time then... :)

But I will get my vengeance
