Agreed. Theres really no good reason to start a car and rev it at standstill other than to charge the battery, and there's much better/easier ways to do that. A car sitting for 2 weeks or 2 months is not much of a difference (other than to the tires), and there's ways around that also.
i generally agree, but if there's nothing reasonably close....any good shop (i understand good is relative) can do most things on a viper. They're very simple cars. I wouldn't hesitate to use a shop I trusted that may not be viper specific for most things.
with that said, I'd also do all my...
sounds almost (and looks almost) exactly like mine. I did most of those as soon as I got it and the rest within 6 months or so. It's just a good peace of mind. Havik should have water pumps.
I'd say skip slotted rotors as well. no need, just more likely to crack. I think i got centrix or...
Mine felt great (red 99 with 12k miles and all original parts including spark plugs lol) as well...it felt even better when i changed all that. Even better once i replaced the old shocks.
Unless youre pushing really hard or tracking, just go with new aftermarket (oem style) rotors and "better"...
looks solid, decent deal at high 50s low 60s.
Not sure why everyone has issues with brakes on gen 2s. They are just fine for the street. Aside from not having ABS, they have no issue stopping the car with new rotors and good pads.
Call JonB. That aside, for typical street driving any of those will do just fine. If youre reaching the handling limits of the tires on the street trying to get that last 2% in performance, youre probably driving too fast anyway. Michelin being the best, Conti and Pzero are probably similar...
Unless you have Viper #1 (or maybe the first 5-10 even, or the last of a production run)....#207 is meaningless even if it was accurate. The year, early production and 3300 miles and everything else matter way more than whatever number way after the first. I wouldn't even sweat it.
At 35 degrees, its probably spilling out of your overflow in the passenger side bumper.
Also, that's probably not great for engine starts on a hill that steep.
Can we get a pictures of this driveway? Sounds interesting
Looks good to me (not evaluating the price, that's a personal decision). Is there something youre seeing that youre worried about?
Low mile, 20+ year old cars will likely need the usualy maintenance, although this does look like it was pretty well maintained.
I picked up an all original 12k...
