My best friend has a C55 and when we race it looks like he accidentally put diesel gasoline in there. No comparison.

Side note, with my ISF, I pull on supercharged E55s. I have yet to race an E63 or C63... one day. *Sigh*

No I swear, I am at the track and checked out that ISF myself, it was MRM 2011 with LEDs headlight on it, I think maybe it too new for him, that why he scare to floor that F

ISF guys with the E55 AMG's is my friend car, and one of his friend's has the same E55 AMG too, they both run mid 12s, I swear, but what surprise me was the 2011 ISF ran trap 13.5@105? and that MRM did it at the first run, so the engine not that hot yet?
Ps, I have IS350, so you guy think I don't the different between the IS350 with the ISF?

Sounds like yours is a lot faster than the IS-F i ran. But yeah, you should kill an N/A 55 car. My CLK55 was faster than the 210 E55, and any good-running, well-driven IS-F would have made short work of that car.

I think that he for sure wasn't going to in the car on purpose down to successful trial accept. He ran more like even if whatever well anyway I don't know you know what I mean yes.

I've ran against a C63 (looked stock) with a 2008 ISF (stock) and there was no comparison. From a standstill, the C63 is quicker from 1st gear and on. Even when it was 2 car lengths back, still caught up and passed me fairly quickly.

Could have been the 481hp Performance Package which is a noticeable difference in person than on paper.

Yeah. It probably was. I have basically all of the bolt on mods you can do to this car. 400+ rwhp

Not sure how much of a reference this is but my buddy had a '97 or '98 E55 AMG (pre-facelift but I'm pretty sure it's the exact same drivetrain as the facelifted '99s?) and he's driven my car and after less than 5 minutes behind the wheel he said my car is definitely faster than his old AMG.
