    VCA back to the same old routine

    I just saw that I had a note of apology from a new forum admin who apologized for 'out of control' moderation. In 15 years on this forum, it's the first and only time I've ever been locked down.

    Brake Booster and Overheating problems at the track

    Gen 1 cars' boosters were not very good. A major braking improvement can be gained by using a Gen 2 booster on the Gen 1. '92-'93 cars are ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL to elevate the front end A BUNCH when you are filling/burping the water from the cooling system. It wasn't until '94 that the header...

    The Bushing That Everyone is Afraid of.

    Jack, That is the same style bolt that the Gen 1 & 2 shocks were mounted to the frame and wishbones with. IMO, the diameter difference between the holes and the ACR 2812 Koni shock (1/2" dia bolts) is why they were referred to as "rattlers" . Thanks as always for your very informative posts!

    Power Steering, ok, so now what?

    If it's anything like the Gen 1/2, the pump body is cast and machined. The reservoir is plastic and slips over the guts of the pump and locks in place with the clips. There should be a machined o-ring groove on the OD of the pump body for about a 4" diameter seal. I don't recall if the hi...

    Epic Suckage! another 998 gusset recall done wrong :-(

    Do whatever you want, but I disagree with your suggestion. I test the oil on a regular basis. I've always gone a year to a year and a half with mine and I've tracked the dog **** out of it.

    Fitting Gen 2 Shocks on a Gen 4 ?

    You need to check the motion ratio of the new car's suspension to make sure there's enough room for the thing to operate through its full ****** and not top- or bottom-out. I would imagine it would probably be fairly close. Hopefully, the shock body/clevis threads are the same.

    What is really behind Viper/Michelin relationship?

    As I recall, the C-1 code indicated stiffer bead/sidewall inserts. These give better transient response and more consistent cornering at the limit. If I didn't have these, I'd probably bump the pressures up 1-2 psi over the C-1 tires as a workaround if they felt lazy to me. The non C-1s might...

    Odd ? about track days & overcoming cornering fears

    Street tires, an air pressure gauge, a pyrometer, a stopwatch and a permanent notebook are the most fundamental tools of the go-fast business. When you can consistently do power-on 4 wheel drifts in 3rd and 4th gear corners with all 4 tires groaning in unison, you will be ready for "stickies"...

    how long to do the front frame recall

    All Vipers have coil-over adjustable shocks. The major issue is the relative ease of adjustability of different brands/styles. (e.g.: height adjustable threaded collars, externally adjustable damping.) Most stock Vipers have neither.

    anyone got lowering springs or caps for a viper

    Once you get the springs loose from the shocks, it only takes 30 minutes on a lathe to make your own out of the stockers.
