Although I haven't been involved with MB's for very long I am a 57 year old gearhead with mad crazy skills and I worked hard for over a year and spent a good amount of money to get into the 40 mph club and I get annoyed when I see this and hear this from people. So I say to all put up or shut up!
Hmm not sure how that is..ive got a slightly ported (more like cleaned) engine with a speed carb and a 44t sprocket and im easily getting 30-35 mph on flat country roads..
