    Stock motor mounts, Gen 1

    The Reid site is me. I have a significant amount of poly engine (and trans) mounts in stock and highly suggest the combo. They prevent the driveline from excess movement, which has its benefits of weight transfer in the chassis when pushing the car around. But the shifter feel with poly mounts...

    Gen 2 Driveshaft Yoke

    I had two separate u-bands let go and take out the yoke on the half shafts. Part is NLA and I was SOL. Ended up getting a diff from X2, then the second time Dan in exchange for mine. Dan might be able to help you out.

    1. buy race ramps (you'll use them again) 2. drive up on said race ramps 3. pop off the front bumper (5-10 min) 4. fill front overflow with distilled water (I used to fill until the dump tube started to drip) 5. top off the upper coolant tank with distilled water

    GTS vs ACR

    I'm a big fan of the ACR and have owned both ACR and GTS (x2). But it's relatively easy to build a better set up if you can live without the stickers & plaque. Here's my last GTS and an ACR. Only power mods on the GTS different from ACR are light flywheel, headers and cat delete. It would...

    Gen 1 Exhaust Replacement

    When the exhaust manifolds are off, it's a good time to replace the engine mounts with polyurethane versions.

    So which Viper is or will be the most collectable?

    The least appreciated, currently, that has the best long-term potential is the '99 ACR. It's the only year ACR with the forged motor.

    2000 GTS tire options ?????

    I run them on my daily '00 GTS. Transformed the turn-in feel, reduces lock up (non-ABS cars), much quieter than R888 and I get about 10k miles out of the fronts. Although they are directional, they drive fine with reverse mounting.

    How many fires caused by power steering fluid cap flying off?????

    My ps line would spray on the manifold at full lock, was fun watching smoke come out of the hood vents. . . for months. Eventually replaced it. Why not get a cap from a dodge . . . whatever from the 90's and see if it fits.

    Sold my R8 bought a Gen 1 , love it but have a few questions

    I highly suggest swapping to coilovers over springs as the rates of the shocks and springs are developed together and the shocks & bushings are new vs. 20+ years old, so the car actually performs better, not just goes lower. Adjusting a ride height to suit your specific needs is a major plus. I...
