As I auto-crossed a 1981 280E for 3 years, I can tell you that these cars will handle. I used Koni's(shocks) & Jamex springs on the front. In the rear I used cut down OE springs for W116 chassis part # 116-324-09-04 & Bilstein HD's. The car was featured in Grassroots Motor Sports magazine in the Sept/Oct 1995 edition. As they say HAVE fun & be different!! I ran a 3.92 rear w/limited slip. Also ran the car at several MB club events. Ran 15.04 sec. qtr mile time.
