Title: The Ultimate Viper Thread
hadyn - October 17, 2005 10:56 PM (GMT)
As some as you may be aware, I've got a big dirty fetish for Dodge Vipers. 0-60 in 4.1 and a standing 1/4 mile in 12.2s in stock trim!! Brutal, hardcore with no driving aids they truly encapsulise a steroid ridden american middle finger salute to the rest of the motoring world and more importanly bland, fwd 'safe' cars made for idiots.
I'll let this be the post for all things Viper and to get the ball rolling heres some pics:
sorry 56k! :ph43r:

I'd personally need the stripes on my Viper. Even after the millions of Corsas and shopping trollies who have had stuck on halfords racing stripes plastered on them, nothing looks as good as a striped up Viper :ph43r:

Well done mate purely for the fact i've never ever seen a Viper anywhere, not on roads, tracks or dragstrips :(
500 ponies going through the rear wheels in the wet = high danger of death if booted ;)

A Viper does not have to look beaten-up to go fast...http://www.viperalley.com/viperinfo/show.php?viper=286

Stunning viper there V10, what kind of power is it putting out now then with the BPU bolt on mods type stuff? Any 1/4 times? Never seen a viper with a flip paint job - yours looks individual :)
And i like your plans to go tt....... B)

Lovin the checkered flag faded into the flipped paint work!
smitty - November 7, 2005 12:32 AM (GMT)
just guessing based on similar cars, but I would say around 450-470 rwhp and maybe an easy 11.6 run on pilots.
