What a weekend!
The crew here at AMS is still recovering from the first 2014 Chicago Wannagofast event. We had a ton of fun even with Mother Nature throwing us a curve ball Saturday afternoon. Our team arrived at the venue in force with more than 10 Alpha cars ranging from mild to customer owned 1,800+HP Alpha 16 builds aiming to take home the fastest trap speed of the weekend.
First E63 4Matic in the 10?s!
On June 26th we took our 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4Matic to Great Lakes Dragway for some preliminary testing of the Alpha 7 upgrade package. Track conditions were not ideal with the temperature somewhat pleasant in the 60’s but accompanied by 100% humidity. When the track lights switched on at dusk you could see the moisture in the air!
Our AMG was equipped with only our Alpha Tune and prototype Alpha Downpipes and Cat-Back Exhaust. The full Alpha 7 Bi-Turbo upgrade will include an Alpha Boost Cooler Kit in the future but we were eager to see the results of just a tune and exhaust. Rolling on 20” Vorsteiner wheels and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires we were hopeful for a very low 11 second run, but ended up with the first E63 4Matic in the 10’s!
