Ok, now here comes the Lietenfeilter (however you spell it) Vette... Ok, now heres a serious can of whoop ass... 0-60 1.6. 0-100 2.8. 0-200 6.5 secs and 254.7 mph.. Ok, so now we have mentioned the fastest road legal car in the world i think we can all agree the vette wins.. Oh and for those figures i had of the viper, they were the fastest i could find, i took the best of both cars twice now and the vette has kicked the vipers ass, BOTH TIMES.. Jus grow up, put down you baby bottle and accept the vette is better, epsecially when you consider the cost...

dude, are you blind. i just posted a link to an article where the viper challenges the gt, and wins in the 1/4. 0-60 in 3.9 and 1/4 in 11.77. the hell are you talking about, you obviously didnt find all of the numbers. comparing 2k4 vette to a 2k4 viper is more even, and the viper will win the 1/4.
dont be another ignorant fanboi.

OK, everyone has their own numbers for testing vehicles, results may vary.... so lets just drop the 0-60 BS as our main criteria for judging which car is better and focus on other things.

I DID, I COMPARED A 2004 VETTE AND A 2004 VIPER, THEN I COMPARED AN EXAMPLE OF A MODIFIED VIPER SOMEONE PUT INTO THE EQUATION AND SO I GAVE ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE VETTE KICKING ASS...READ IT PROPERLY...

*IN MEMORY OF VW*... THINK, TYPE, SUBMIT...

Correct! I think we should just settle down alittle... everyone gets different stats! No need to b*tch about it! This is a place to learn, not a place to b*tch against each other...

What is really puzzling is how the GT had better time 0-everything, had a higher trap speed, and still a slower 1/4 time. What that means is basically the GT was faster to 100 mph, and somewhere between 100 and 124 the Viper Caught it and passed, the GT started to accelerate again, and re-passed the Viper. (After the 1/4 was over.) Sounds kind of fishy.
The Viper is much better suited to drag racing than is the GT. The GT is a track-racing car, and would outclass the Viper in the twisties. (Hell, it outclassed a Porsche GT3 and a Ferrari Challenge Stradale.)
