Defects:
-The coup had used a conventional swing-axle with two pivot-points outboard of the differential. If driven on trailing throttle through a tight curve the camber change tended to lift the inside rear wheel and induce sudden oversteer, the same problem that race drivers had encountered. This was manageable for professionals, but detrimental to those less skilled, so the Roadster was fitted with a new swing axle, utilizing a single low pivot-point, thereby improving the cars cornering behavior and predictability. It's necessary to keep loaded the rear of the car by maintaining a little of acceleration.
-Since it had the possibility to have about 100 kg of fuel behind rear axle the braking balance when tank is quite empty makes the car slighty oversteering. Try to brake on straight or to not push too hard on brakes.
Pro:
-A very well shaped body made the car very similar to its racing sister W194, so while W194 was had a coefficient of drag of 0.25, the production W198 had 0.29; very low for that time and actually even for today. It allowed the car to achieve 250 kph with just more than 200 hp making it the fastest production car in that period.

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL (W198) was the first iteration of the SL-Class grand tourer and fastest production car of its day. Introduced in 1954 as a two-seat coup with distinctive gull-wing doors, it was later offered as an open roadster.
Built by Daimler-Benz AG, the direct fuel injected production model was based on the company's highly successful yet somewhat less powerful carbureted overhead cam straight 6 1952 racer, the W194. 300 stays for its 3.0 litre engine displacement and SL for Sport Leicht (Sport Light).
