The joys of RWD...................and late plate models with ASR :D


You were lucky though by the sounds of it.


Man with 245 rubber, who can fishtail and spin car is driving too fast!

Can you post a topic telling us about your Carlsson. Year, details, Specs etc? I have been able to find very little info on the web about the original Carlsson W202 C-Class'.

As always pictures would be great if you are able.


Is it C36 or C37?

I believe there was a Carlsson C60 too.

No I am stupid.

Im still finding out the power of my car, just need time to get used to it.

I have to be extra careful on damp roads as I have no ASR or Traction control.

I think I am going to take some track lessons, need to find out how to control a rear wheel drive car properly just incase.

road was clear, I keep forgetting its a benz, they are meant to be for cruising - I got nothing to prove to no-one!!!

I can recommend an advanced ROAD driving course (the IAM is a good start and a damn sight cheaper than a trackday).

Learning to drive defensively is a far greater skill than spending a day on-track. (And when you find yourself working at it everyday very rewarding too!!!).
