    Anyone track a Gen V at Laguna Seca?

    Laguna Seca has a sound meter on the track that ensures cars are under 90 dB. They've always had a limited number of higher sound track days, such as 105 dB. News flash - I've hear that beginning in 2014, all track days with be 90 dB! Most stock cars pass this, but I'm doubtful the Gen V...

    My Gen V at Thunderhill Raceway

    I took my Viper out on the track for the first time. I went to Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA for a Hooked on Driving track day. I tracked the Camaro there for a weekend, it's a track that I feel comfortable at and has almost no walls to hit. Perfect for the Viper's maiden voyage. The...

    Maiden Road Trip - CA Viper Rendezvous

    Fresh from my dealership and with only 15 miles on the odometer, it was time to break it in right! My daughter and I joined Vipers from all over California for a road trip to Santa Barbara. About 35 or 40 Vipers converged at the Fess Parker Resort for a 3-day party.

    Motor oil viscosity for tracking the Gen V

    I'm just about to change the oil before tracking at Thunderhill. I had wanted to run Royal Purple 10W-40 but my local auto parts didn't have it. Ended up picking up Royal Purple 10W-30, anyone have any opinions? Too thin? They also have Royal Purple 15W-50 or Mobil 1 0W-40. Or for that...

    Red and Black Napa Leather

    Since this interior color is fairly rare, I thought I'd post a few shots. Absolutely love it. The red and black interior is what the original interior designers created, so it seems fitting to be on a Stryker Red car. The reds are different enough that they complement each other, like dark...

    Just picked up a poor man's Viper TA, LOL

    It's obscenely orange, it has sinister black wheels and ground effects, and lots of go-fast goodies. That makes it pretty much the same as a Viper TA, right? C'mon, just look at the two side by side! :****: I just couldn't take it any more. As many of you know, I ordered my Viper last...

    Carbon ceramic brakes for the Gen V

    A couple of weeks ago, I took the Ron Fellows driving school at Spring Mountain Raceway. Although I had tracked before, I wanted to up my skill level before taking my Gen V on the track, so I enrolled in the ZR1 class because of it's similar weight, HP, and track performance as a Gen V Viper...

    Gen V tow hooks or tow points for track days?

    I'll be tracking the Gen V end of June, and need tow hooks, or at least need to know that it can be pulled out of the gravel safely without damage. Trouble is, I don't have the car yet and may not have time to have something fabbed at the last minute. Anyone heard anything? The Viper TA has...

    Venom Wheels, polished with hyper black pockets - Pics!

    I bought these for the street. I'll save the Sidewinder II's and Corsas for track days. I could not be happier! These wheels are bad ***. Brightly polished faces. The pockets look like metallic grey powder coat, which is not what I was expecting for hyper black. They're a little dusty...
