Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG (R230) ’02

I have had this car for an extremely long time in my garage and every once in a while I work on a tune for it. I have been slowly working on a race tune, but it is just not super great yet. I decided to make a drift tune first as an 800+hp FR car is obviously going to be awesome. However, although it has lots of power it also weighs a lot. I really wish it weighed less, but it doesn’t matter too much for drifting. It is also more of a technical drift car as too much gas or not the correct turn-in etc may cause you to have a less than ideal drift. Overall, I really like the way the car looks, and the huge amount of hp still make it one of the better drift cars out there.

    Great tune again! Would love to see a drift tune of any of the Subaru wagons on here!

    • Thanks. Also, I have one already. The 09 sepc C. Search Subaru and you should see it

      • n240sx94

        I guess I meant the older wagons, like the ones with the 22b body style. Sorry for being unclear.

        • Lol oh, I don’t have any of those yet

  • tone719

    could we see a tune for the nismo 270?

    • Race, drift, etc. which?

        Drift, more speed based, I can get it to hold good angle and such but it scrubs a bunch of speed. Thanks for responding btw 🙂
