    Hello,
    I bought my 97 b/w gts back in July and am loving it! I just recently decided to find as many viper forums as possible to have the most available information as possible if needed. Anyway the car is a 97 GTS and I bought it in Fresno California and drove it back to Shreveport over the 4th of July weekend. The car has a few mods done to it, 3.55 gears, lightweight flywheel, t&d roller rockers corsa 3" exhaust, high flow cats, valaya racing headers, Carbon airbox, b&m short throw shifter, mgw shifter, BBS wheels, wilwood rear brakes, 3 row radiator and custom dual fans, Gen 3 seats. I've added 5point harness' and fire extinguisher as well. The car is a blast and my dream car. I've had it at a Couple of cars shows since I've bought it and it's done fairly well, plus I do take it to the drag strip with the local Mopar club and the best I've done in the car is 11.97 at 114. I'm hoping for faster soon, but extremely happy with where it is at right now.
    I hope to be able to meet up with some others in the area, I recently met broomrider and she let me over here to check things out.

    I know exactly what you are jabbing at him about. Ultimately it was his decision to come here. If he's on this forum and yours it shouldn't really matter to you after all you come over here to have fun at making mischief. So one would only assume that you enjoy your time at the VCA because you are here a lot. Maybe it's because you really don't like the way things are going over there and this is the only way you can crawl your way in.

    Thanks everyone, I'm really enjoying the car. Thanks broom, yes I know about the event in May, I'm even going to it. I joined this forum to just have as many options as possible as to find info and other viper enthusiasts like broomrider that I met last weekend. I'm just enjoying the car and staying out of the drama that is between clubs that happened well before I even thought about actually owning a viper.
