    Is anybody running an 2000 SLK Mercedes in C Street? I am considering starting Autocross and I have this car available at no cost. Not sure if I should entertain something more Japanese?  Thanks

    Free is the best price there is for an autocross car. Unless you are unusually talented, it will take some experience to become competitive.
    Replacement of all the rubber bushings would be a good idea. Get a larger front sway bar. If they haven't been replaced, get some good aftermarket front struts and rear shocks, and possibly new factory spec springs. Do these thing in this order, unless the struts and shocks need to be replaced now.

    Get out there and have fun and learn how to drive. :)
