im going with the Viper because I'd say that overall it's faster and it's bulky appearance looks strong and fast. The Corvette looks slick but I don't think it presents it's power like the Viper

I would go with the Viper, because I always think of the Corvettes as a middle-aged man's car. I almost never see anyone under about 40 driving a Vette. Vipers, on the other hand, seem more "youthfull". Maybe I'm just crazy.


This kinda reminds me of a video I downloaded off the internet, where this guy turboed his viper, and it make ~860 hp. Then he dragged some sportbikes. The viper owner bought a stock $80,000 viper, put tens of thousands of dollars worth of mods on it (I'm guessing about $40,000), and dragged some sport bikes with a 40-60 mph roll-on (which is better for the car). He dragged a few different bikes, mainly Suzuki Huyabusa 1300's ($10,000), with varying degrees of modifications. He got owned by 'Busa with less than $1,000 worth of mods on it. I felt so sorry for the guy.

You and your bikes... Once the bikers crash going very fast they have a smaller chance of survival than the guy in the Viper, so it all balences out!

Automobile drivers just need to learn how to drive. Way too many motorcycle fatalities are because of stupid car drivers.

LOL....You wanna try driving in London?....it might be different in the US, but over here most motorcycle fatalities are caused by stupid motorcyclists who think they are invinsible...not only do they risk everybodies life, but they give respectfull car drivers...and motorcyclists for that matter, a bad name

I agree there are a few bad apples that give motorcycling a bad name, but there are plenty of non-stunters and responsible riders out there too.

Who the hell gives a sh!t? The idea of a bike to me is to thrash the hell out of it.. All i can do is to pin open the throttle in every gear untill i run out of road.. And evidenetly from my accident 2 weeks ago 2morrow i leave it too late sometimes.. But hell, i just got back on the bike and carried on being insane.. And that is why bikes are more fun than cars Although cars do brake and corner better and have a higher top speed.. And at the top fuel end of drag-racing cars are faster in acceleration there.. But none the less bikes have more bang for you buck and are a hell of alot more fun in any case..

It is just like that here! I was driving down the DNT (Dallas North Tollway) today and a motorcyclist drove right between my car and the Elantra in the other lane... Motorcycles and thier drivers are crazy, and they blame everyone else when they die...
