    Drilled brake rotors 97 GTS

    Slotted are good, drilled are not good. We used to call them "holy" rotors. The holes fill up with caked brake dust and are a mess to clean with an air hose and, yes, they are notorious for cracking around the hole edges.

    Wheel Alignment Pricing

    You are fortunate to live close to Woodhouse Dodge. If you think it is poor value, I suggest you make plans to stay the entire day and watch how it is done by the Viper Tech. You will learn the complexity and see how it is done right. All Dodge dealers are not the same.

    Production numbers of a silver 99 GTS with connolley leather

    Connolly leather is the same as Cognac; cognac is the color.

    Lightweight flywheel and new clutch

    Used a Tilton triple disc racing clutch with lightweight flywheel in a couple different road racing Vipers. Would not recommend for street application because you will burn up the clutch with normal street driving/clutch slipping. Revs much quicker/ takes some getting used to.

    $45,000 Offer on 1993 Viper Do I wait for him so he can buy it?

    I do not believe there is a legally binding contract, certainly not one that you should rely upon. Move on and sell to a real buyer.

    K&N Filter Cleaning Frequency?

    I'm not aware of anyone in the Viper Racing League ever using something other than K&N. As I recall, all GEN 2 ACR Vipers came from the factory with K&N.

    K&N Filter Cleaning Frequency?

    I've always used them on my Vipers without any issues whatsoever. I inspect them on every oil change, and use judgment as to whether a cleaning and re-oiling is necessary.

    Ground height - Lowered?

    Jack up your car, put it on jack stands, pull off the wheels, post a photo of your springs/shocks on both front and rear. Easy diagnosis.

    GTS vs ACR

    Since you live in Kuwait, I'd focus on an RT/10. The ACR was produced for easy conversion into an SCCA Class T1 road racer. None of the changes in the ACR vs. the GTS made it more conducive for street use. Hell, I figure you would get your head chopped off in Kuwait for street racing :)

    Yes, it is common. Take it to your Viper Tech and save yourself some brain damage.

    First Time Gen II GTS Buyer - Need Advice

    JUST MY OPINION: You should spend more time doing your search. There are plenty of GEN2 GTSs for sale in the 40's-50's. You don't need to deal with a car having internal engine mods as it increases the risk of engine failure. Also diminishes sales value of car.

    CLassified section?

    The Classifieds are no longer operational. You have to go to the threads for the generation you are looking for and search for individual posts made by sellers. Not convenient, but that's how it works.

    Wheel and Tire size options

    Hello Deep, Yes it is. I believe you can actually safely put a 305 on the front 1999 OEM 18" wheel but I chose to go with the 295 which is still a nice upgrade from the 275. Jon B. can steer you right.

    Belanger Exhaust

    With all due respect, headers are for increasing performance, not improving sound. Belanger made the biggest performance gains and were used extensively on the race cars in the Viper Days race series. We saw upwards of 40+ HP gain at the rear wheels. That's phenomenal. A cat-back exhaust...

    Opinion on this 02 FE

    Agreed. The engine bay condition is totally inconsistent with rest of car.

    Opinions, Looking at 94 RT10

    I've been around for a long time and have no knowledge of GEN 1 cars having overheating problems. Not on the street nor on the track. In the early days of Viper Days, nearly all of the cars were GEN 1 and performed remarkably well in both cold and hot weather climates. BTW, I think you would...
