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

Hmmm.. oh, wait.. I DIDN'T!!! I COMPARED IT TO SOMEONE ELSES MODIFIED VIPER!!! Look below..

Just because i proved you wrong before...

whatever man, i dunno wat you are saying, but screw it. alls i gt to say is im standing by MTs numbers, and the result is viper>vette in 1/4. end of story.

yes, quite puzzling. always a problem with mag testers, dunno what exactly the conditions were, driver, etc.

u gave the times on a dodge viper year 1998, he said dodge viper year 2000, and yes the viper would smoke the corvete. the 2000 dodge viper is faster, and Zo6 i dont like, and it sucks, the look of it blows too.

Hey, for those of you that kinda know me, sry 4 my bitching contest, you all know i don't start trouble, but i jus had had a bad week.. s'all..!


This is why i like the reliant scimitar, well once you have got rid of the essex engine, its amazing what diffrence a bit of tweeking does for it, alloy frame you just double the tube wall thickenss, same strenth 1/2 the weight, take shunted jag xtype and fit the running gear and you have a lightweight 240bhp AWD sports estate for under 2k!

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.)
Most propably to do with gearing and how wide the torque bands are on each car.. Alternatively it may just be the drivers.. You know, human error...

Have you seen the new GT3R?? stripped out version of the GT3, no carpets, radio, perpex rear screen, fixed perspex windows, no stereo, carbon fibre bonnet, they have taken 150kg out of it.

Hate to break it to you, but just because you dont like it doesnt take away 100 hp or something...
I dont personally like it either, but I still respect it...

That GT3R sounds pretty nifty...

Yes, it stand for Grand Turismo (spelling... I dunno) I believe that Ferrari or some other Italian make first used it and then the other car companies just plain copied them...
