A while back (note, a real long time ago) we were talking about rallying and someone brought up Mercedes never having a real rally team (rally like WRC not Dakar) well I just found an old Group B video that mentioned a Mercedes rally team.

I doubt dry ice would have much effect if we put some in right before the match. Simply too much heat generated, too much thermal mass, and the dry ice isn't going to be able to absorb heat very efficiently.

Probably wasn't me because I knew the 190E was a used in rallying and still is to this day. It was never a huge factory backed effort by Mercedes-Benz because the car wasn't competitive with the all wheel drive Audis.

lol, well the 5ers get about 2 inches wider each generation, so I guess that's something.
