So this morning I went to a Dr. Apt. On my way to the highway to go back to work I see a very nice Mercedes ahead. We both stopped at the light and I see it is a brand new SLS AMG GT (Paper Tag). I can see he noticed the sounds of G8. We both look over each others cars, but I think nothing of it. We proceed driving down the road driving next to each other, about half a mile up the road clears up and he decides to put the pedal down and the famous little wing comes up. Not expecting that I quickly downshift to 3rd and start gaining. We both stop due to a car turning. We both drop into first going roughly 5mph and once the car turns its game on he punches it and is off. I hit it to see what the new beast can do. The tires tear into the ground ripping up asphalt and swaying the rear end around while throwing me into the back of my seat, it quickly gains traction and I start gaining hard. He is clearly stunned when I look over and his facial expressions is in sheer awe and amazement as I wave bye and smirk as I pass him. Before we get to the next light he quickly turns off in shame down a side street that leads nowhere (I lived in this area prior)
It put a big smile on my face, and made the drive to work a more enjoyable. I can say 100% I am very happy with the car it took a lot of time, effort, blood, sweet , and tears but the beast is prowling and just waiting to be unleashed.
Happy Friday Everyone.

Thanks

Sorry I never did a sig on this board. I thought about just going ape **** on the car and going 18.5 lbs of boost but didnt want to overspin the blower. Lots of more power to be had, but i think she is sitting pretty for now. Plus drivabilty is still functional as long as i dont touch the gas to hard.

Love those AMGs especially the SLS. Good kill. I remember seeing a board member here who purchased one of those and still kept his G8. Cant remember who.

Nice kill.

Tommy Kendall did a couple of hot laps with me in an SLS GT AMG a couple weeks ago at 10/10ths at MRLS. Amazing car.
