'17 AMG C63S Coupe
Ran my stock 2017 C63S Coupe at the track today - 1700 miles on the clock.

11.6 @ 121.74 MPH (best ET) and [email protected] MPH (best trap), bone stock, full weight with half a tank of 93 octane (weighed in at 4030 lbs).

wow that's the fastest I've seen. Sounds like race start? Did you do a burnout prior? Michelin super sports?

Yes, I used Race start and Race mode setting with ESP in sport (not fully off). I'm on the stock Michelin PSS (255f/285r), lowered rear tire pressure to 32 psi, and did a small burnout just to clean the tires before the run. Street compound tires don't hook well when they're very hot.

I tried Race mode with the suspension set to comfort thinking softer suspension would hook better, but each time I got horrible wheel hop/bogging. The stiffest (Sport+) suspension setting in Race mode gave me the best launches.

Yeah I get the same wheel hop problem if I accelerate hard in 1st or 2nd in comfort mode. Makes me think their is more adjustment than just the stiffness.

Check your tire pressure and make sure it's not overinflated. With the Coupe, I run 36 psi rear and 38 psi front (cold) and don't get wheel hop on the street. At the strip, I dropped the rear tire pressure down to 32 psi. That combined with the stiffest Sport+ suspension gave me the best launches. The street can be tricky because it depends on road conditions, tire and ambient temp, etc.

No Bull, making up nonsense isn't my style. I have videos too but I think you've already seen those. As far as the 697 whp 350Z that I beat in my W204 with headers and tune, I won because I hooked and he didn't. That was relevant because I wanted people to know how good those Hoosiers were.

What are your tips on getting the maximum tire hook up? Would you mind sharing your settings and technique?

You running OEM tires as well? Very nice 60 ft on that run.

Thank you! Yes oem tires, that was as the car was driven off the dealership lot, it only had 472 miles on it lol. Full tank of gas and full tire pressure. Byron is a notoriously sticky track so that helps. These cars seem to be fastest without launch control. Put your suspension in soft, traction all the way off and then either S+ or Race. Do a decent burnout too even though it's not a slick. still helps

Thanks! Did you brake boost at all or just floored it off the line?

Yes! I can't remember exactly but held roughly 2000 rpms while waiting for green

This was at Sacramento Raceway

What I did:
Put in Race Mode
turn off TC all the way off
Pull up, back into water, forward, small burnout
Engage race start
Second light, press into throttle
Third light, release brake and floor it

I was able to get great traction 1.9 60'

Just ran the quarter for the first time tonight in my C63S convertible (complete with two booster seats in the back seat). Only got three runs. My best was:

11.943 @ 119.36

This was at Orlando World, with temp at 81 degrees, so hot air.

I'll take it. My Reaction time as .191 and 60 ft was 1.823, which I'll also take

Shoot, it was even my best 1/8th (I usually run a poorly prepped 1/8th mile track). 7.737 at 90.86.

The ETs are better, so far, than my old SL65, but the top speed is a little slower. The SL65 just kept accelerating.

Great fun.

That's great since with the added reinforcement
It's a little heavier then non convertibles.
