RENNTECH CL65 STANDING MILE RESULTS!

Monday, April 26th, 2010

On April 25, 2010 in 90 degree weather with a 15 + mph head wind, a RENNtech modified CL65 with stock turbos and stock intercoolers went a blistering 191.186 MPH in the standing mile held in Miami during the Exotics Rally event.




The bad Benz did have the following RENNtech modifications: ECU/TCU, Ram Air, High Flow exhaust with 200 cell cats, upgraded intercooler pump and limited slip differential.



This is the same RENNtech CL65 that holds the quarter mile record of 10.62 @ 133.7 mph. It appears that this Benz may hold a couple of new records: fastest CL65 in the standing mile and the fastest Benz with stock turbos in the standing mile.

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”.
