    no more viper (no more sports car for me)

    Really sorry to hear. Guys, enjoy your cars while you still can. No sense in keeping it a garage queen for someone else to enjoy later. On a serious side note, the S550 seems like a nice car. But go test drive a GT-R. It's easy to get in and out of, you sit up high, plenty of interior room...

    Possible 2016 Supercharged

    I heard straight from Ralph Gilles mouth that the superchargers are an in-house Arrow Racing experiment not related to the production Viper. He said he couldn't talk about any bump in HP in the production line. Likely the Arrow superchargers will be a aftermarket upgrade you can purchase, but...

    What is a Gen 1 soft top / windows worth?

    Yeah, the most you'd get is maybe $1000 for the top and curtains. Keep them with the car. What I can't figure out is why you would sell your rear glass window. Are you replacing the whole skycap?

    Electrical gremlin caused car to stall out-ABS + Parking brake light on-stereo dies -

    Re: Electrical gremlin caused car to stall out-ABS + Parking brake light on-stereo di Honestly, Optima batteries are like modern BMW's, they are over-rated. Ditch the Optima, unless it's under warranty. I've had success with Autozone Gold series Batteries but anything around $130 will be a...

    Thinking of selling my 2000 RT/10 104,800 miles... whats a good price?

    Dude, why did you drive it so much? It belongs in the garage, collecting dust, not on the road.

    Need opinions fast!!!! Color combos on 2 viper gts help

    Once you go black there's no going back. I hate cleaning black cars though. But gunmetal is easier to hide dust.

    Another Viper fatality

    I doubt excessive speed was the issue, it's hard enough to drive at the speed limit in the rain in these things. Likely the tires were old and it is so easy to hydro-plane GEN1-2's. I have video of losing complete control of my GEN1 on a damp track and spun off the track, fortunately unscathed...

    Used Vipers will take a hit!

    I doubt this will affect the already rock bottom prices of GEN1+2's. Many have been wrecked and they are getting scarcer every year. There's probably less than 4000 GEN1's left and 6000 GEN2's left in existence. There were more Gallardos made than that.

    Holy crap...Dodge just announced great incentives to spur sales

    Dang, this is amazing news. I wonder if 2013's can be had for like $75k if the dealers want to dump them. My 1998 GTS stickered for close to $75k after the gas guzzler tax. This will help with those on the fence for a Z06.

    2013 gts

    I've seen some GTS's go for $95k but not much less. Getting one for less would either mean it was a lemon buyback or the dealer took a HUGE hit.

    2014 C&D VIR Lightning Lap Results...Viper TA delivers!

    But it does! No better time to be a car fanatic than now. Manufacturers are doing things on production cars we only dreamed of 10 years ago. N-Attack is a full production car. ACR is a full production car. Z07 package is a full production car. These are street legal factory track cars.

    2014 C&D VIR Lightning Lap Results...Viper TA delivers!

    Wrong again. For $180+k (don't know final price) you order it exactly like the one that did the Ring, with a full warranty and emissions legal just like the one that did the Ring. The only option to the N-Attack is the titanium exhaust. There's a lot of misinformation out there. The N-Attack...

    Gen two soft clutch

    It's your slave cylinder. Take it to Dick Scott Dodge. Ask for Ron, the Viper tech.

    2014 C&D VIR Lightning Lap Results...Viper TA delivers!

    The computer tweak was for the actual full 600HP. Previously the Nismo was to be 591hp. All the stuff you mentioned is included in the N Attack package, even the gurney flap. The car is real and the N Attack package includes everything that was at the Nurburgring, and then some. Remember, that...

    2014 C&D VIR Lightning Lap Results...Viper TA delivers!

    It is if you opt for the N Attack package. That's the Nurburgring edition, closer to $170k. The Base model Nismo in the lightning lap costs $150k. There's no denying the Nismo is fast, even a tick faster than the TA. It's 3800+ lbs and still beat everyone. The TA 2.0 will change that though.

    AEM Infinity PCM MODULE from Wiliam @ RSI how long is reasonably?

    Will is a stand up comedian. The next thing he will do is accuse you of tarnishing his already tarnished name. He will threaten to sue you next. He will claim it's all your fault. In reality he robs from Peter to pay Paul. Sorry man, but you're in for a long battle. I hope you get your money...

    A/C is warm on my 99.

    As long as there is pressure, air did not get in. Most of the time, if it's not a compressor leak, it's a valve stem leak on the fill port.

    Viper runs hot when sitting in traffic

    How hot has it been when you see these temps? Was your coolant hoses completely burped of air? Original stat? Your temps are not dangerous, especially if it's been hot out, but some things can be done to help. You can get an SCT tuner and have Sean Roe send you a fan tune that kicks it in...

    Supercharged v-10!

    They can do some of that cheaper than it seems. Half the R&D was already done for the HellCat. Just tweak and carry over the 15.5" brakes, the modded T6060, and lower the compression. Skip the expensive suspension but offer stickier Trofeo's or MPS Cup2's. Provide an optional track key to bump...

    Possible 2016 Supercharged

    About Freakin' Time! Don't even come out with a 2015. Let it pause and release the 2016 in May of next year, or only make 90% TA 2.0's. During the spring, give the car mags the BEST prototype HellSnake to drive and freakin' stick Trofeo's on there for the sake of Pete. If they really came out...

    The current and future state of Viper sales and technology

    You are probably one of those people that never used launch control in manual mode. Auto mode is there if you need it, but you should never need it. Grow a pair and go race that thing and drive it like it was meant to be driven. And turn off the VCD, and do a roll run against a GT500 or a ZL1...

    The current and future state of Viper sales and technology

    Dodge can't price the Viper in the same realm as the Z06, there are too few Vipers made. The price of the base Viper should stay just under $100k, even by a few bucks, but the performance needs to dominate more cars on the street. The GT-R dominates because of three major factors, AWD, DCT, and...

    96 GTS engine questions

    I'm thinking two or three hours tops at $100 an hour for a Viper tech sounds close. So $200 - $300 on the high side plus the $35 stat. Get a complete flush while you are at it. Don't worry about the oxygen starvation, I've heard this before, but don't know how believable it is. Nothing wrong...

    The current and future state of Viper sales and technology

    To say the 96 GTS was a lousy track car is simply misinformation. The original GTS may not have dominated the track but it was no slouch and was in the top 10 fastest overall track cars at the time. My 98' is actually a good track car by today's standards and it was a great track car in the...
