Thanks again Wolfgang. What I find interesting is the picture. Look how high the hood is in relation to them. The ML that they are posing in front of looks to be lifted as high if not higher than...

Thanks Wolfgang. You inspire me more and more to build the ML into a rally vehicle. I always tend to follow a theme with each vehicle and was at a loss with the ML.

sosh - I think you are confusing siping with grooving. Siping is the minute slits put in the tread to provide additional gripping properties to a tire. These are so small that you would be lucky to...

Thanks Wolfgang. I probably won't do anything with the ML for awhile. There are mods I have to do on the 300E to get it ready for the track and the Rover for off roading. The ML is still basically...
