    Ended up behind a newer silver Porsche twin-turbo this afternoon... I've seen him driving around the area a few times, but I was never in my Viper....

    I'm directly behind him at a standstill..... he nails it from a roll and we're off.... by the end of 1st gear I'm about 1 car behind..... at the end of 2nd gear I'm right next to him..... at the end of my 3rd gear I had had about two car's on him....

    at the next stop he rolls down his window and says "you could never keep up with this car on the highway"

    I said, "really, I just took you pretty good"...

    he then asked what my top speed was, I said about 195 or so.... he said his cars does 220, so I would not have a chance.....

    I asked him if he wanted to proceed down the road, about 1 mile, to a empty highway...... He said, "nah, you don't have a chance"....

    then I said that my car wasn't stock, and had about 500HP, and that I've raced a few twin-turbo's and I usually beat them just about the same....

    he then says, "well, I have 600HP, upgraded turbos, blah, blah...".....

    at this point, I'm pretty sure the guy is full of sh**..... he would have dusted me with no problem with 600HP..... and I told him that..... he then said he wasn't really trying......

    whatever! I challenged him again to run em on the highway, and he declined.....

    I am surprised he ran you. All the ones I have ever encountered just cower when they see a Viper. Always nice to kill a euromobile.

    My buddy had a 996 with upgraded turbos and all. He mentioned it dynoed 600hp and he wouldn't pull on me at all. I just have headers and the usual bolt ons. We've raced many times on the highway but never from a stop. He since traded it in for a GT2 but haven't raced it yet.

    I don't care what the guy has in his 911. To tell a guy in a Viper that he doesn't have a chance is pretty bold or stupid or both. :crazy:

    could be the '04 GT2 more HP and a few less lbs. to lug around.

    I pulled on a new 911 turbo up to 170mph. My car with headers only and I think his was stock. Braking and corning maybe different results.

    Hey Brks, When I snack on Porsches I prefer to spray them a little,they go down much easier.

    Sounds pretty typical. These guys all sound the same. I figure that they have to justify spending 120K some way. His claim of 220 MPH is total BS. Great Kill. :cool:

    Nice kill! At least he ran you. I've pulled up next to a few TTs at a standstill and on the highway and they won't run. :p

    Yeah, I bet if you said that your Viper had 600HP and went 220MPH, he would have jumped up to his Porsche having 700HP and going 250MPH. :rolleyes:

    The "not trying" remake is a classic, especially if they don't try again afterwords. Ha Ha! :D

    Snakester,

    yea, not trying my *ss..... when a 911 twin-turbo is hammering it and is on-boost.... you know it....

    I should have said that my car had two spark plugs missing and I was only running on 8 cylinders.... :)

    Since DC is bustin my balls by not releasing a Gen III GTS, I've toyed with the idea of a 911 TT. Conclusion - too civilized, too preppy, too innocuous, too dot comish, and equally important, not American made.

    This is what I don't get, why don't "people like this" respect the Viper for what it is? It's one thing to BS with a friend(s) about Viper vs. Corvette, but it's another to completely deny the actual / proven capabilities of a car. Like we might not like Corvettes, but the Anniversary editions is still at the very lreast a decent car. Why would / does a 911 driver run a Viper, lose, mouth off, thenr efuse to accept what he has been been shown? It's not like the Viper owner is lieing or making anything up. Things happened right then and there, yet the 911 kept lieing, making up stories, and refused to "settle it right then and there".I just don't understand... :confused:

    same reason why you guys dont respect the Z06 for what it is, even though many know the proven capabilities of the Z06 in all performance categories...thats why!

    I am saying even though we may not like the Z06, anyone who says it is a "crappy" car is just like the 911. When I say crappy, I don't mean personal preferances, I am saying to diss a car's proven capabilities, just because you don't like it, beyond the usual Dodge vs. Chevy bit, I just don't think is "right".

    If he had big 19 HRE wheels (tall guy black hair... Latino), I know him... His is full of Crap, He did the same thing on my Z06 when I sprayed him, then gave me his number so he could run me for pink slips...
    Long Story short, I called him several times to come out, including night I was already at Us 27, and he alwyas had an excuse... never came out to run....
    A Total Idiot!, I got his cell number still....
