Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

A couple of other pix found on the net, after searching vigorously!

No video yet unfortunately. Seems like most of the vids on YouTube of that era are poor quality anyway and sadly only follow the...

Re: Mercedes V8 Inlet Manifolds

All the videos I’ve heard have the Red Pig emanating a terrible soundtrack & it actually sounds like mechanical injection! It definitely does not give the impression of power or an efficient...

The End of V8 Supercars?

With the loss of local manufacturing, 2 recent withdrawals and now the loss of the Adelaide circuit it seems the series is on its last legs.

Unless they change the format significantly to attract...

Re: Mercedes V8 Inlet Manifolds

For the sake of completeness Iíll add the 580-600hp CanAm M117 & the failed attempt using the AMG 6.8 with modified tunnel rams. Interesting that it was apparently 200hp down compared to other...

Re: In-Depth guide to 6.9 emission control

Emission equipment is almost a dark art! I know I had all sorts of issues on my XE when I got it probably since the PO swapped in a worked motor then put the original back in when he sold it.

Re: 6.9 Sbarro 6.9 Road Test

And this is how they finished M100 6.3 development when the Red Pig was killed off due to capacity limits. Rather disappointing really. They didnít bother with the 6.9 since the CIS wouldíve been a...

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

Apparently it wasnít built for CanAm at all, but it did start life as a CanAm McLaren M8F (chassis #4).

Word is when they imposed the capacity limit on Touring Cars (thereby killing the Red Pig),...

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

Or perhaps AMG deemed the series too unsafe with catastrophe just around the corner? Thus is would be short lived & not justified to make the investment?

Pity because the 6.9 would’ve been the...

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car
