My SLS Black Series is a RENNtech BEAST!

Πριν 3 μήνες

My SLS AMG Black Series has been transformed by RENNtech and it's now an absolute beast! Straight from the installation of the full R1 Package, it's immediately onto the Nürburgring Nordschleife for some laps to feel the power, and experience the sound. There is no question, this car is epic!
After visiting RENNtech Europe a few days prior as the work was being started, this time it's back to the workshop at the Nürburgring to collect the car and hear it for the first time. The R1 package has been fitted which consists of the headers along with 200-cell high-flow sports cats, with a tune to take power from 631hp to 675hp, although there's still some checks to be done as to why mine reported a lower output before. But it's not just a performance increase, it's going to be getting a whole lot louder and more aggressive, allowing the 6.2l NA V8 to have a thunderous sound.
With a cold start in the workshop to kick it into action, there is no doubt that the new sound is brutal, but that becomes even more apparent upon a drive on the local roads. Taking it to the Green Hell for some laps is a whole different ball game, a noticeable pickup in power, but the sound, oh THE SOUND!
A special thanks to Lukas and the team at RENNtech Europe for their work:
Awesome thumbnail pic from ChrisCarPics, be sure to check out pics of your laps and GP sessions at as well!
Thanks for watching, Tim

It's epic, that's all there is to say! The RENNtech upgrades to my SLS Black Series have transformed it into a beast, with a thunderous sound and endless smiles during some laps on the Nürburgring. This car has just become even better!

Awesome Awesome car Tim! Nice drive too. It's noticeably quicker. Looking forward to the final 'fettle' for output and the brake upgrade. Has there been any suggestion for a squarer setup for more front grip? What a magnificent car Tim! So much character 🚀🏁👍👍

The people in the comments saying “he’s not a good driver” or “he needs to go faster” or anything along those lines are probably laying in bed in their underwear waiting for their mom to heat them up some spaghettio’s in the microwave. You’re doing awesome Tim. I love watching you take your Shmeemobiles through the green hell. Great work sir.

In terms of exhaust sound I prefer another ones like Lambo's V10 or Mc Laren's V8, but if Mercedes/Renntech wants to give me one of that for free, I'll humbling accept it with no complains about the sound.

Serious respect taking your SLS B around the ring straight after getting those mods. You’re getting to know the circuit really well as you pass most other cars. It’s a lot more about the driver as well as the car when on track. I took my new M3 Comp there back in 2012 after 4 months ownership. It rained, so I was even more careful. I did 4 laps in total over the course of a day and that was plenty. Went again the following year and met a racing driver who agreed to passenger with me and my lap improved no end. In total I’ve completed 8 laps there behind the wheel and I’ve heard it can take about 100 laps to get to know it.

Shmee put a camera in the rear so they can see how you gap the cars behind you give them a better perception of the speed and distance created behind you...But most of us can see how fast you have become MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS and better than many other GRpostrs that aren't professional race car drivers or retired ones. TRUST WE KNOW YOU ARE FAST AND A SKILLFUL DRIVER!!!!!!

Maybe it is different in person but I have to be honest, it doesn't seem to sound too much different from before or even an AMG GTR when in race mode. Plus the SLS has such laughable traction (part of the allure) I question how much if any of that extra power you can apply to the road any better than you can with the stock SLS Black. But who cares, mods are a good time. Have fun Shmee!
