RENNtech SLR - 10.8@128.3

This SLR featuring a RENNtech Stage 1 performance package cut this impressive ¼ mile time on 10/8/2010 at Atlanta Dragway in GA.

Copy of the time slip:

1/4 Mile ET: 10.804

1/4 Mile MPH: 128.300

1/8 Mile ET: 6.984

1/8 Mile MPH: 100.400

0-60 Foot ET: 1.606

Temperature F: 72.0

Density Altitude (DA): 1967 feet

That makes this particular SLR one of (if not the) fastest SLRs on the planet!  Thanks to BTR Viper for the information and video.

C63 STANDING MILE RESULTS!

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010



This past weekend RENNTECH participated in a Standing Mile event at the Dade-Collier airstrip. There was a fairly decent turnout and our tuned C63 drew all sorts of attention. Last week, we fabricated some unique aero enhancements in-house for this event. These exterior additions bumped the cars standing mile speed up nearly 9mph – 185MPH! Proving that aerodynamics has just as much an effect on a vehicles ability to “go fast” as its actual performance output. Here are a few pics and a video of the C63 in “standing-mile trim”.

R.A.T. (RENNtech Auto Tuner)

Friday, July 17th, 2009

RENNtech has introduced a new revolutionary Auto Tuner for Mercedes-Benz vehicles. For the first time, you can reprogram your ECU simply by plugging in the new R.A.T. (RENNtech Auto Tuner). No need to remove the ECU!! Once the reprogramming is complete (about 90 seconds), you can easily switch between stock, for street use, and tuned, for the track, with the flick of a switch.

The R.A.T. is shipped out preprogrammed with RENNtech’s list of firmware and can be sent anywhere in the world. When first plugged into your Mercedes-Benz via the OBD II port, the tuner “marries” itself and uploads the proper file. If the proper file is not already available or you would like to have a custom file made, simply plug the R.A.T. into your computer. The vehicle data is sent to RENNtech and, after being tested, your new file is emailed back to you. If you lose power or the R.A.T. is disconnected while uploading the file, the tuner is designed to automatically recover the stock programming.

The R.A.T. is available for the Mercedes-Benz E55 and 2006, or earlier, Mercedes V12 Turbos. See our website for more info.

Thanks, again!

CRUNCH TIME

Saturday, September 27th, 2008




Look past the SLR. Just barely visible behind the Goff’s curtain wall is RENNTECH’s 2008 SEMA / LA Auto show project car – a 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK that Mercedes is calling “the Rally Dominator” (previously covered HERE and HERE).

Many RENNTECH staffers have been putting in extra hours, extra days, and (seemingly) extra lives into this project; and to prove we’re really serious about all this, we even called in the Swedes.

The GLK will be finished by 01 October, but the media embargo stays in effect until the 03 November reveal at SEMA.

Plenty of teasers until then, though.

McLAREN HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR

Friday, September 19th, 2008




Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Formula 1 juggernaut McLaren has a pretty good sense of British humor. Team Vodafone McLaren recently released the video above as part of a marketing build-up to the next Grand Prix.

Great stuff.
