    My Observations about VCA - This is NOT Good

    As a member of this club since it's inception in 1995, it pains me to read this thread. I've met many of my close friends in this club and I look forward to meeting many new ones. I believe a solution to some of the key issues raised in this and other threads is to formally split VPA off as a...

    Surprised no one ever made 17" 5 spoke replicas in a larger size?

    Agree that the oiginal 1996-1997 wheels have a great look. ACRs are a nightmare to keep clean and the 18in wheels are too plain. 19s would be great. 1996 wheels are cast, but the 1997 wheels are forged and hold up on track. 19's would also better fill the wheel wells.

    This month's Sports Car Market has a good overview of the current values of Gen I RT/10s and the amazing value, performance to fun ratio and reliability compared to other sports cars. Who will drive up the price of these great cars are the kids that put up Viper posters on their bed room walls...

    Why do viper owners tend to keep miles so low?

    Most Vipers are not purchased as daily drivers. Porsches, NSXs and Vettes are more typically used as a primary vehicle, hence the higher mileage. I use a 911 every day, while my Viper and other sports cars are weekend warriors. The Viper is very reliable (I've had my RT/10 for 20 years.) Other...

    Hey SRT/Ralph. Why are mostly Corvette cars pacing pro races?

    As said previously, pace cars are a profit business for the tracks. Manufacturers pay for the privilege to promote their vehicles.

    original GTS-R video footage

    Nadine, thanks for posting this great video. I was lucky to attend Le Mans in 1996 with the Viper Canaska Southwind team which placed 10th overall at that race. I'll also attend Le Mans this year with SRT team. So will Hewlett Packard which sponsored the Viper team in 1996 and returns as a...

    I might start a war here but I'm gonna ask anyways...

    I've owned my RT/10 for 19 years and only used the top twice. I love driving the RT/10 on sunny days, but use my 1996 GTS when travelling overnight or have my wife with me. Luckily I have both, but would chose to keep the GTS if I was forced to sell one.

    2014 Corvette

    This is the first Vette I would consider owning, primarily as a daily driver. I wouldn't consider a ZR1, although it is a fantastic car, since I rather have something less present on the streets- like a Viper. The issue with Vettes and 911s for me is they scale from base model to supercar...

    Gen V vs Aventador vs LFA (engine revs)

    Gen 5 definitely sounds better than other gens, but it will not sound as good as a V12. For the money, the Viper rocks.

    Automatic Viper?

    Remember that paddle shift can be used on both automatics and manual transmissions. My Aston Martin Vanquish S has a tremec manual with paddle shifts. It is exactly the same transmission as a Gen III Viper, but controlled via a hydraulic clutch. Originally, they were maligned since people tried...

    Non horsepower upgrades that can help your viper experiance

    I've been thinking about the woodhouse engine and transmission mounts, mine are shot, but really don't want more vibration from the engine. Some say it settles down (or they get use to it) while others mention the added vibration doesn't really go away.
