    Gen III stabilizer bar upgrade......

    Has anybody that tracks a gen III upgraded their stabilizer bars to reduce body roll and improve handling? If so, what has been your experience, pros and cons. Have heard of installing gen IV ACR bars, and I see now that Snakeoyl has an upgrade kit, but there are no specifics, like how much...

    Who's tried the new Hoosiers?

    :dance: Hoosier has a new compound available in Viper sizes now. R7. Supposed to work better in cooler temps and last a little longer that the R6. I am going to use them this season, and was wondering if anyone has already got some seat time with these. Curious to know if they feel...

    You don't need a Go-Pro if the guy behind you has one.

    One of my track buddies found me on you tube in someone else's video from a PCA event last season. His vid is the whole session. FF to about 10.20 or so. That's about where he catches up to me. There is a nice off-line / inside corner pass at about 13.20 This was at La Junta raceway. It's a...

    1st track day of 2014

    Weather is finally going to be nice enough in my area to allow for some much needed therapy. Going to Pueblo Motorsports Park today with some friends for some leisure lapping. One Lotus guy, and a few P-car dudes. Running on some leftover street tires (Kumho XS) for this one. :drive:

    total irony......

    Wow. Just bouncing back and forth from the *** site to this one, and gee ****. Some of the bickering and ugly comments that used to be such a problem here, is now looking like it's going on over there now. Whatever. I am not trolling, or trying to start some stupid crusade, or raise...

    Lap timer.....

    Has anyone used the G-Tech lap timer? And if so, how do you like it? I was looking at the Traqmate stuff, as it seems a little more full blast. But so is the cost. The G-Tech is way less money, and doesn't look like it *****. One of my track buddies uses one and likes it, but he is a...

    PCA/AMR at La Junta Raceway

    October 5-6th. Two days of tangling with P-cars. :box: Have been driving with these guys throughout the season. They have moved me up into their 'black run group', which is mainly instructors in fully prepped race cars, and GT3's. These guys are really fast and very intense. They say we...

    HPR track days in September

    Same rap as the 'track days in June' .....ZCCC on the 14th .....CECA on the 28th The September events are a little easier on the cars/drivers with the cooler weather. Usually need a light jacket in the morning.

    CECA at CSP track in Golden....

    :dance: Once again, headed to the place where the cops practice chasing people. August 24th. I will be taking my Corvette to this one, as I did last year. Not the most spectacular event of the season, but I still like to run there. Even though the track is a little bit lame...

    Dealer called me.........

    :omg: The dealer I bought my current Viper from called me today to let me know that they got a blue GTS in. I do not like the GTS hood, so it may be safe for me to go look at it in person. (and not end up driving it home) I would still like to see 'what's up with the gen V' for myself, so I...

    Pueblo Motorsports Park.....

    Some of the track rat community in Colorado may not be aware of PMP being available for use (open lapping days). The facility is under new management and is recently been re-paved. The entrance road still *****.......but the track is killer! I did a lapping day today (6/8/13), and was...

    HPR track days in June

    Saturday the 22nd with Z-Car club- Open event to all makes of cars (including Vipers). Very well structured event, lots of fun, great people, no egos. I think this is my 6th year running with these guys, and I always look forward to their track days. They have run groups from novice to...

    The ACR-X Vipers are unbelievable in person...

    :omg:.....Wow!........That pretty much sums it up. Did an HPDE Saturday with a club I run with a lot. (Colorado Exotic Car Association -'CECA') As of the last several events, I have been the only Viper in attendance, or maybe one other guy now and then. -Somewhat cool as it makes me a shark...

    Totally amazed with real tires

    Ran my first track weekend with the Hoosier R6's, and still blown away at how much difference there is between these and everything else. :omg: The event was at Pikes Peak International Raceway with PCA. I have run with these guys before and they had placed me in their intermediate group. After...

    The genIV oil pan upgrade works!

    Had my first track day last Saturday, and kept an eye on the oil pressure gauge (whenever I could) and am happy to report that the needle stayed solid instead of dropping and fluctuating like it used to in the turns. I was kidding myself trying to ignore the issue and hoping it would just be OK...

    wanted: used rear sport cup

    Does anybody have a decent 345/30-19 Sport cup (good enough for 1 or 2 days) taking up space in the garage. I'm trying to make use of some scrubs as a spare set, in case I need them in a pinch.

    Heat cycle service on new tires?

    Getting ready to pull the trigger on a set of R6's to start the new season. Do you guys recommend having them heat cycled, or do most guys just get the tires, put them on and go. I have read all the stuff on the Hoosier site and Tire Rack site, and will probably opt for the service. I was hoping...

    Porsche club...plus 1 Viper

    Registered to run with the PCA- Alpine Mountain Region HPDE event at La Junta Raceway. Sept 29-30th, Saturday lapping, and Sunday time trials, I think is what they do. I have seen these guys before, but never driven in an event with them. This is a very small track with no elevation change, but...

    Another question for Hoosier R6 guys...

    :dunno:.....Would just like to clarify what constitutes a "heat cycle" for these tires. I'm not asking about the heat cycle offered when you buy them, or before using them on the track or whatever. I'm asking about the usable lifespan of a set running HPDE's. Is a heat cycle one full day if the...

    HPR Sept.8th -ZCCC

    Z-Car Club's fall season track day. -one of my favorite events of the year. Cooler weather, great bunch of guys to run with. Fun, laid back event without a bunch of ego-driven/look how much my car costs guys. Always a blast.:)

    CECA track day in Golden Aug 25th

    Colorado State Patrol Track once again. A rather small, somewhat lame track (compared to HPR, PPIR, PMP) but still more fun than not doing a track day. I have decided to take the Corvette this year for this event, cuz the size and layout of the track is just not real Viper friendly. (by the time...

    Reverse Persective- Viper/Corvette

    Was driving southbound on I-25 through Colorado Springs this afternoon and got to experience the other side of the coin. This time I was the idiot in the Corvette and was suprised by seeing the mythical Viper in real life. (they do exist) What a beautiful car cruising the highway. A red gen II...
