What THESTRADMAN Really Thinks of My AMG GT Black Series?!

čas přidán 29. 03. 2023
I'm back with @TheStradman! My AMG GT Black Series has been staying at James' Dream House in Utah, but despite the snow, we're heading out for a drive and to see what he thinks from behind the wheel of the GT BS, and in particular my UK RHD modified Solarbeam beast!

After the first part of the epic GT Black Series tour here in the United States, I'd parked up the AMG at Strad's Dream House following our journey to Las Vegas and back for SEMA. At the time I wasn't entirely sure how long it would be until my return but after a quick stopover in Miami, it's time for the journey to continue from Utah across towards California!

Unfortunately I've not been able to come up with a plan for the cracked windshield; it's not possible to fit a LHD one due to the sensors' location, but US dealers also can't get a RHD one thanks to grey-import rules within Mercedes. However, in the meantime the show must go on! The car has been in safe hands, hooked up to a CTEK smart charger but now ready to be pulled out into the snow, perhaps not the best conditions for such a high powered, rear driven supercar on Sport Cup 2 track tyres.

Despite being with him for nearly a month, James hasn't actually taken the GT BS for a drive and it's time to do so, to see what he actually thinks about it!

A huge thanks to James for his hospitality, and help with my car while I'm away.

  • Shmee it’s a ninja. He appears and disappears on different places around the globe, having a blast and enjoying! Keep up the good work Tim, you the best 🥂

    • I am glad Schmee flies around so much I dont like winter need to be more warm

    • Lives like a dj

    • The global show is incredible. Thanks from Australia, we love watching here. ( travel via "Shmee-Flight") 😀

    • @Shmee150 I swear you invented a telaporter Shmee.

    • Maybe Shmee is Santa Claus? ?

  • Hats off to stradman for having patience and not doing chrome and pink on the GT BS 😂

    • @Shmee150 pink gt sv serious black lol

    • @Shmee150 hello ! Please l would ask you if you know the CS-tvr working at Mercedes-Benz? Amazing videos by the way ✨

    • @Countrified Jose Exactly what I was thinking too 😂😂😂

    • @Shmee150 and a exhaust

    • I think Tim was a little disappointed it wasn't pink and chrome 😂

  • Shmee and stradman 2 of the best CS-tvrs ever

    • Very much to very I Loveu to say video ho Hanson very

    • Woo very well to all that very happy 😊 iam only to video ho new body e on

    • @Shmee150 I thought James will put white wheels on it

    • Facts 💯💯💯

    • I think so too

  • Imagine James painting it back to its original colour.. that would have been the end of a friendship 😂

    • @DHenderson oh, I see. hey, thanks for answering me that 😊

    • @HeRo TuRtle this one is original black he painted solar beam yellow as he couldn't get that colour at the time

    • which color was it, original? I'm surprised, it did have another one, since it looks like as if he brought it brand-new. I do remember the SLS got repainted blue (and silver wheels) just like he always dreamt about and then one other GT, his first one, I think, where he "saved" on the factory yellow solar beam option just to have it wrapped later on in that color (I kinda believe this was to advertise the company that made them foils.)

    • @DHenderson ofc not but imagine the reaction would have been murderous

    • He wouldn't do something so permanent

  • My brother in christ!, that peak on Stradmans mic literally blew my eardrum 😂😂

  • We need more Shmee and Strad! You guys are such a good duo!

  • Really cant wait for James to visits shmuseum on summer. May be a roadtrip from UK to the nurburgring with him might be a good idea for a collab. Oh those videos are gonna be a good one!

    • We've got some cool ideas!

  • The feel and familiarity between you two... it's like you're literally family. That's quite nice.

  • Your content has been so good recently Tim and always has been but love the amount you've gave us. Keep it up 👍

  • Any video with Tim and James is an instant classic 🔥✊

  • With how crazy James can get with his driving. He was very respectful with shmees vehicle.. hats off to him!

  • I love these two interacting, got me smiling the entire time, and they are too, it's awesome

  • Shmee is everywhere at once

    • You do know Shmee is plural right? He’s a twin.

    • @Shmee150 your hardwork and massive amount of hours are paying off🫂

    • @Shmee150 ayooo

    • Maybe there's more than one of me ;)

  • with every video you continue to prove that you are the best at what you are doing. cheers from italy 🇮🇹

  • I’m surprised Strad didn’t have a heated driveway installed when building the house.

    • @scwyd You obviously have never purchased a house.

    • @Tracy Boisselle Tell me you are poor and jealous without telling me you are poor and jealous.

    • @OwenSpalding that argument fell off the table the second bro added a car elevator lol

    • He can't afford the driveway he has.

    • @OwenSpalding I mean a heated driveway is a pretty standard thing to install in a place where it snows. It's not like he's new to the state either.

  • Love the collaborations! I can't wait to see the spin classes in the UK with stradman! Definitely my 2 favorite car guy's keep up the great work!!!

  • I love watching you guys together doing the work, making people happy! Keep grinding boiiiis hooya

  • My parents used to live in Utah for many years. What a beautiful state it is. Thanks Tim for giving us another beautiful scenery of Utah!

  • jamies has massive respect for you can tell as he never taken your car out lol

  • I’m almost surprised James didn’t do a heated driveway with the cars he drives

  • Looks for me was always number 1 for a car, and still is, so to hear James say that as well is reassuring but also really cool to know😂

  • Always a great video when Shmee and TheStradman collab!

  • ALWAYS a great dynamic to watch you both enjoy the cars! Kindest regards Tim. Big love, as ALWAYS, Richard U.K

  • the Schmee Strad duo is one of the funniest things ive seen for no reason

  • Great video as always Tim! Glad to see you back in the beautiful state of Utah!

  • James should’ve done a heated driveway, especially with those Utah winters.

  • Your kindness and pureness is what gives you the success you deserve, keep it up! Love from Greece

  • Wow, I never thought these 2 would be in a car together, one of the few occasions when windscreen wipers on the inside would be needed for a pair of lispers. Being in the company of these 2 would be my version of hell.

  • You and Stradman are so cool together, mischievous pair lol. 👍👍👍👍

  • Love seeing Tim amongst all the carvloggers! As soon as I saw the Bugatti being wrapped.. I was just hoping it would happen to The GT BS. 🤣

  • The only two CS-tvrs i am subscribed to Thank you for the positive energy always God Bless You both!.

  • Your content brings me genuine joy. Thank you so much

  • It’s always great to see you and James together. I wish you could it more often.

  • Man I love when you guys film together!

  • You guys need to start a channel together. You guys are great together. Hats off to you both.

  • SHMEE... You are the GOAT in this car Game, you have shown to us so many times That you have been watching and keeping up with most vídeos from other CS-tvr, that is so kind of you.

  • Good vid, Tim. Stradman is a fun personality brimming with energy.

  • The mountains are always trippy out there. Because of their size they look so close. Then you start driving towards them and it seems like you drive and drive before actually getting to them.

  • Tim to James about his one-of-a-kind AMG GTR Black Series: "you could have taken it out if you wanted to" and "launch it!". 🤯

  • A man’s GOTS to know his limitations ✌🏾

  • Reminds me of the fun in the snowy alps in your og GTR. A proper nostalgic hit.

  • Need to get Stradman to Germany for the Nurburgring, that collab would be insane

  • I must say the more I look at the Black series even those in person the stance of it with the Solar beam Yellow looks really nice

    • Yellow cars for me always look quite poor no matter what the car is but the more I see smees gt black it defo suits it👌

  • Loving your videos so far.❤

    • It's quite the tour!

  • James needs a heated driveway like Damon.

  • That was cool seeing James driving the AMG Black Series

  • Should have brought it to amg boi himself Luke! Epic video love seeing right hand drive cars in the states 🤙

  • What a car you and stradman are like 2 best mates

  • What a great Guy the Strad is.

  • It’s crazy how tiny the Hummer makes the GTBS look

  • Omg, I LOVE THIS VIDEO! Finally, Stradman gets to drive an AMG!

  • that spec is just amazing absolutely one of my dream cars

  • Love the back to back vids❤

  • That's a bad ass ride there Shmee, awesome pic on the colors

  • Hi Shmee your cool to help Stradman with the C8 it's 900 mile Transmission leak. Your a good Automotive Enthusiast, hopefully you Slept well being everywhere. Take care man 🧑🏻‍🦱👍🏻🏎️🏁

  • The scary thing is when you drive on the wrong side of the road in England long enough that is suddenly starts to make sense.

  • Convinced shmee can teleport around the world at will

  • Make sure to hit up a car wash in St. George or Vegas and spray off the salt from the under carriage. Nice to see you back in town, safe travels!!

  • Tim you should install fi full exhaust like james on the amg GT black series 🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • It is still my dream to watch a collab between dde James and Tim

  • Nice video. Looks like Tim needs a new windshield

  • Shmee finding your GT with some awesome Gullwing doors would've been pretty awesome if you ask me

    • James sounds different lol

  • Shmee150 Great Video I'm so glad you let TheStradman ride in and drive your AMG GT Black Series and I think he did very well and I can't wait to see both of you with Huracan Sterratos

  • You and strad should do gumball this summer with DDE would be awesome 😎

  • Insane to allow Stradman to drive the GT Black in snow on the R tires.

    • that's probably exactly why he dropped the, "R" off .. for enhanced winter performance to help out James 🤣 (so, it's only sitting on cup 2s without the, "R.")

  • “Hi guys I’m shmee hello welcome back” never gets old

  • James on the autobahn would be the video of the year.

  • James for real needs an AMG on the channel

  • You 2 make a great CS-tv pairing...nice of you to let him drive it!

    • Also you seem to calm his ADHD style and we get a different look of you with James. Great work!

  • There are so moments where this felt like a SLC Punk scene….”You boys from England?!”

  • Can’t wait for the Strad to come to the UK.✅

  • 11:19.. "Yeah but I was waiting for you".. that is awesome respect and just wholesome

  • Hi Shmee, great video as always. I've recently purchased my own reg and I was wondering where you get your plates made?

    • There are many places that can make them up for you, just Google search

  • The black series just pops in the snow😍

  • I love how you respond to comments after 2+ mil subs and years and years of thousands of videos ❤

  • #shquad.....hi Tim and Puppi 😎😎, great to see you reunited with the BS...onwards. 👍😎

  • My two fave car tubers. Another great video

  • Tim, I’d have someone buy a new one in the UK then ship it. Build a nice crate for it to handle the rough transportation

    • I don't think it'll arrive safely, and it'll take so long that it's hard to know where to send it

  • I love Mercedes so it would be awesome if Stradman got an AMG!

  • Feeling bad for daily driven exotics for their McLaren 720 s GTR accident 🥺

  • Turns out the prank was not doing anything to the car. Well played!

  • I can't believe Shmee just sold us out saying we drive on the weird side

  • It's like 2 best friends making a video😅

  • I like that you wore the Swatch x omega speedmaster mission to the sun to match the solarbeem yellow.

    • Nicely spotted! It's been my watch of choice for all the GT BS tour videos

  • Probably cause James was afraid to drive right hand drive cars. So left it alone 😂😂

  • Wish I knew you were back. I would have loved to take a picture of my amg next to the solar beam machine!

  • Love these 2 youtubers!!

  • Shmee I love your videos there cool! PS. I liked and subbed

  • the dream collab is back!!!

  • Have you ever wondered who films shmee when he explains something 🧐

  • Damn Shmee is everywhere like savoir fare(old head cartoon)🤣🤣

  • I think Shmee is gonna end up purchasing a Home in the states!!

  • The blowoff valve needs to be louder

  • Stradman should have done a heated driveway

  • Most likely the bead will never be the same after driving the tires in below 40 degree weather. The treads are like rocks as well. - not got summer tires in the cold!!

  • I believe the mee in Shmee is somehow means there’s twins🤔. He’s everywhere!

  • crazy that the blackseries cage is removed for the US market ,but 20 years ago the R129's roll bar wasn't .

  • the house looks like the sims after you desig a house, get bored and just plaster random exterior/interior panels everywhere to see how it looks then left it like that

  • Still a shame they didn't put the gullwing doors on this version of the car. Obviously still a super cool car but it would be that much cooler with gullwings 😁

  • i'd love to keep an eye on one of your cars anytime ;-) won't ever be riding one anyway. love your channel for years now
