    Can anyone recommend a great dodge dealership?

    Sounds familiar. I have taken my car to both Orlando Dodge and Central Florida Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge and wasn't impressed with either. Central Florida CJD did have a really good service rep that took care of Viper owners but he is no longer there (probably because he was too honest). My car is...

    Looking for pics of installed big brake kits

    There is no comparison. The stock system was down right scary and very dangerous in my opinion. It stops much quicker and there is no more fade with street driving using the Stoptechs. Not long after getting my car, I about ran off the road because I couldn't slow down for a sharp corner in...

    Looking for pics of installed big brake kits

    I have 14" Stoptech rotors in the front with 19 inch wheels and 13" Stoptech rotors in the rear with 20" wheels. I will try to get some better pics as soon as it warms up here in Florida:mad: FYI the 14" stoptech rotors weighed 18 lb for the front while the stock 13" front rotors were 22 lbs...

    Have a buddy looking for a Black GTS...

    I have a 2000 black/black GTS in great shape that I am likely going to put up for sale. Stock motor, 16K miles. I have converted it to side exhaust and have Forgeline wheels and PS2's. Only other significant mod is the 4 wheel Stoptech brakes. Let me know if interested.

    PASS TIME - Vipermania tonight!!

    My understanding was that the track was not prepped and very slick. I felt bad for Underground Racing. It was tough to watch. The cars and drivers were capable of much better times.

    PICS – Went Twin Turbo

    I don't know how you are going to make it through the winter without getting to drive that thing much. I would be going nuts. You should have left it in Florida for a while. It will be perfect driving weather in about a month down here. Congrats!

    Clutch recommendations

    There are too many variables to say it was the LUK clutch and it does have a great history. I may have purchased a defective one, something may have happened with the installation, or I may have ruined it during the break-in period but in my case, there was no way I was going to take a chance...

    Clutch recommendations

    I had a similar experience with the LUK E-bay clutch. In all fairness, I probably didn't break it in long enough but it was toast after 1000 miles. On a recommendation, I went with the clutch offered by Archer Racing (I believe it is made by Advanced Clutch Technology)and another DC...

    Aggravating Slow Leak

    I had a similar leak and it turned out to be corrosion like Tom described. I took very fine sand paper and cleaned the areas up and then replaced the compressed air with nitrogen. From what I am told, the compressed air is more likely to have water in it which can help contribute to the...

    Pro photo shoot of my GTS

    Wow, it is amazing what a professional photographer can do despite what he had to work with;) But seriously, great pics and car.

    Does any car look good next to a GTS?

    Based on looks alone, I don't think there are any equals to the Gen 2 GTS. It appears he is not in the minority. No big deal, you just have different taste and are probably biased by the performance of the cars you mentioned. I would bet that if all four cars you mentioned above were...

    can you run a 28" rear tire without clearance issues?

    It must depend on the car. I have a 2000 GTS at the stock ride height that I run 28" PS2's on with no rubbing at all. The tires are very close to the lower front wheel well but will move up and down with no issues.:dunno:

    Need a good Sneaky Pete Logo

    Thanks for the quick response but my cheap photo shop program doesn't like the wmf format either:( I am trying to change the black color on your logo to grey and then upload the file to a company that can make a custom decal.

    Need a good Sneaky Pete Logo

    I did a search but the methods suggested like down loading from "brands of the world" puts it in a format I can't open. This is the one I like: Viper logo | Best Brands of the World Does any one have a sneaky pete logo similar to the above in a jpg or more common format? If so please...

    Can I extend the "stone shield" plate to cover my diff

    Looks great Tom and you are right, your method of doing that wouldn't be bad at all. Not that anyone would see it but if I do this I will do it your way. The off the shelf plastic ducts don't look good enough for a Viper. Thanks

    Can I extend the "stone shield" plate to cover my diff

    Thanks for that pic Viperless. It is obvious that the engineers felt that the diff would need some extra cooling and that configuration looks very easy to replicate. The NACA duct dimensions are great as well Tom but fabricating that would be a little tougher unless I could find one already...

    Can I extend the "stone shield" plate to cover my diff

    Thanks Dave. The rear exhaust hanger bar would be a good alternative. Since I didn't remove the heat shielding, I didn't even know it was there. A duct built into the aluminum sheet is a good idea as well. The pictures are great and I appreciate you sharing them. Tom brings up a good...

    Can I extend the "stone shield" plate to cover my diff

    I am converting to side exhaust and while thinking about my options to cover the rear exhaust hole I am considering putting a piece of aluminum sheet extending from the stock plate under the transmission to the rear bumper fascia (mounted to the bottom of the frame). I am hoping it will...

    Underbody Neon Lighting

    Well, "entertaining" may have been a bad word choice. It is a little rougher crowd and even though it is fun to joke about this stuff, I would have loved to see some of the responses over there. Regardless, I just hope I never see neon on any viper and I am glad Dave wasn't serious. I...

    Getting multiple cylinder mis fire code

    Sorry to dig up an old thread but I just wanted to follow up for anyone that may have the same issue as I had. I got great help from Chuck Tator as usual and he provided me with some new coil packs. After I installed them and cleared the code the code has never come back (over 5 trips):D...

    What do you guys think?

    Color looks great. I like the wheels too (they look familiar) but would love to see what they looked like with black centers on your car.

    Getting multiple cylinder mis fire code

    Thanks, since those were the plugs and wires that had issues, this seems like a probable cause to me.

    Getting multiple cylinder mis fire code

    Does anyone know if the number 2, 6, and 7 cylinders are all on the same coil pack?
