    What did you do to your Viper today?

    Update: Bumper and sills have been refinished and new ppf applied. Waiting on carbon fiber splitters which are being refinished. Amazingly, the CF finish that looked completely worn off by road abrasion can be sanded and restored. Looking forward to seeing those and getting all pieces...

    What did you do to your Viper today?

    Yesterday I received my Gen V side sills and front bumper back from the paint shop, and today took them to my paint protection film shop to wrap before assembling all the bumper grills. I'm going to have the two front TA splitters refinished and spoke with the local carbon fiber shop owner...

    What did you do to your Viper today?

    It's January, driving season in the north is over...and the perfect time to do some work on the Viper! Time for some cosmetic improvements on my '14 TA starting with removal of the 10 y/o Suntec PPF that showed all of its 58,000 miles. Side sills, bumper and under-bumper carbon fiber...

    10 years ago this community changed my world...thank you and Happy New Year!

    Jeff, it's the soul of the community I'm concerned with losing as I see it being drained away by the behavior of the few we trusted most to promote and protect it, and by the inexplicable defense by others who are actually also trying to protect it. You've well-defined who and what the Viper...

    10 years ago this community changed my world...thank you and Happy New Year!

    The 2014 Gen V TA had set the Production Car Track Record at Laguna Seca, the journalists reviewed it in September, and forum members here helped me big time to decide to pull the trigger based on their experiences with their 2013 SRT and GTS models. But only 6 of 159 were allocated to Canada...

    Great video with Leno testing and discussing the Shelby Daytona. The Viper picked up where the Shelby Cobra & Dayton left off! I've always loved the Shelby Cobra & Daytona, so it's no wonder I feel the same about my Viper. How about you? Bruce

    Website Analysis

    Club's #1 benefit for me have always been the very active public forums, the VCA's first when I was doing research to buy a Viper TA in 2013, and then also on the other one that started in 2014. That's really the benefit I chose to support for years with my paid membership. Many like yourself...

    My viper was keyed very bad "graphic pictures "

    So sorry Wayne. I can't even imagine how you're both feeling. Just unbelievably sad. I rarely park the car unattended for fear of it being keyed, but sometimes you just can't avoid it. Hope you get it back absolutely perfect.

    14 SRT Viper TA FOR SALE!

    Great looking white TA, and nice mod list. Still think this original TA version is the best looking, this is perhaps better than new with the tasteful mods, you can't even buy a new one in I think this should be an easy sale for a very strong price to someone wanting a new white TA...

    Arrow Race Controller - preliminary observatuions.

    I met a fellow from Arrow that worked on your new PCM tune at VIR last summer. He was there custom tuning 3 Comp Coupe race cars at pit wall and highly recommended this new tune to me for track use. Ralph has basically run the tune forever in his white car and also recommended it to me, as did...

    Arrow Race Controller - preliminary observatuions.

    Hi Bob, Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to any updates as you spend more time with it. I was under the impression that Arrow was heavily (entirely?) responsible for the factory PCM tune, and was the natural choice of tuner for an off road version. Bruce

    General question about Gen V features

    I don't know what model you are considering buying but I can tell you most of those Motor Trend comments are completely inaccurate based on my street and road course experience with the TA model. Never having owned a Viper before, I was intimidated like Carlos for the first week, and the second...
