Phase I (Baseline testing) of the CLK build has been completed ahead of schedule. Yay! This is good because driving a mid-13 second “race car” is a little tedious when your daily driver is a low-11 second beast. I’m ready to get on to bigger and better things, but first let’s see how the baseline testing went.
I came up a fair bit short of my goal of running a 13.20 at full-weight, only managing a best of 13.58. A 13.20 might be possible on a really cold day, on a nearly empty fuel tank, and with the spare tire and passenger seat removed, but I haven’t got time for that! I’m ready to call this phase done and get on to the weight reduction.
