Never done this, but did take my MKII Golf down the strip many years ago at a GTI international event.
Would love to see what my Merc could really do.
Not an AMG but would still like to know whether it can do what it was built to do, and if it has improved, now it is "run in"
Maybe somebody could organize a club meet up? (not me as far too busy at work at the moment)
Well I did have early summer in mind (June), but if the weather keeps up I'm more than happy to do it earlier! I can't make the 28th March or 4th April (presuming Saturdays are better for most people), but can do the rolling 4 Saturdays after that.
I've nothing real tasty to run but depending on date would be up for this with my modded W208 won't break any land speed records but would be good for the old girl to stretch her legs, she's done 30+ laps of the ring over the years so I suppose a sprint up the strip won't do any harm
Back to the op,
It's addictive. You'll always want just one more run!
Make sure you read and understand the staging and start procedure, all the staff and marshals are friendly and helpful. Follow their guidance.
If you want to chase a good time, it's all about the start. Nail a good start and your et (elapsed time) will drop nicely. You'll get a print out of each run with et and mph and various points down the strip. The most important for us the 60 foot, that's your start.
If the weather is good, get there early as it'll get busy quickly and you'll be waiting 1-2 hours between runs.
