    I just wanted to say Hi to everyone on the list. I am very excited to be a new owner of a 2000 Black GTS. I have been a supra owner for the last 6 years www.toyotasupra.org and I finally took the next step and bought a viper. I couldn't part with my supra , but I must say the viper is in a whole different league then the supra.

    Well if you just got it... then you don't know what your in
    for....

    Wait for about a couple of months of driving the viper and
    not the Supra...

    Then take the Supra out...

    Please post to the board then and tell us what you realy think
    about the Viper/Supra.

    Its like magic, and I like it

    Actually I think the best person to give us an opinion would be Ben Treynor(SP?, sorry). I remember he used to have a pretty impressive Supra that was featured in Turbo Magazine I believe. Maybe he could chime in on this.

    THanx all for the welcome. Give me some time and i will post the differences between the too cars. My first opinion is the 2 cars are totally different in almost every way. I was really surprised at how well the handling is on the viper. Like night and day with the supra. My supra has the eibach/kyb combo also.

    I will post a follow up soon.

    If you'd keep the top on that NSX-T down there in sunny Florida you wouldn't get a " redneck "!

    Cirus- Welcome!

    I hope you fully enjoy your Viper.

    I never had anything against Supras. They are just a cat of a different color, and both cars need not be compared. Good strong engines in dem Supras, too.

    After 8000 miles, I just want to drive my Viper more and more. Before I had one, I was entranced by the Viper. After buying one, I love it even more, its lived up to my expectations. Its great, the most satisfying ownership experience I've ever had, after a dozen cars.

    Best regards, Vic

    New to the board too Vic? j/k

    Cirus, I for one am also dying to hear your opinion on the differences. I'm unfortunately embedded in the econoperformance community and would like to have a kindred ricer to support my opinions of Vipers. Good luck and congrats...
