    At least according to an old friend I hadn't seen in a few years. He's got a tricked out EFI class late model Firebird running mid 10s and he's employed by the Ramchargers Speedshop (I think his Firebird was a poster car for BFG a few years ago)..Anyway I see him at a local cruise Sunday, and we're talking about my '02 GTS.. He says "There's a couple of Vipers in the area with some serious stuff going on under the hood... 9 second cars " That's all I know! I didn't catch wind of it at the April 27 get together, but who knows?? I'll have to quiz him some more next cruise!

    Fast Freddie in Dearborn Heights has a very fast blown Viper. I don't know if it ever ran 9's, but I do recall it being one of the faster cars around. Made an extreme amount of horsepower.

    Lets get Fast Freddie down to Norwalk in Sept for the Viper Nationals. We need some Mid West representation against the MD, IL, GA and KY boys

    I'll definitly be trying to get to Norwalk those Sept. days. I don't think it's too far from Columbus.

    Who from the VA/MD region attending? Hoping to catch up with some friends from back home and see some fast striking snakes!

    He used to post all the time in the kill section on Corvetteforum until they deleted it. Can't find any of his old posts since they don't exist anymore, but did find out it's a 95 RT/10 DLM Level 2. 765RWHP and 767RWTQ, and if I'm not mistaken, that's minus the juice. He was always talkin that he had some wicked fast Busa as well, but he seems to be MIA. I believe the car was grey with a pretty extreme set of bodywork.

    No blown Viper has made it to the 9's yet.

    Bill Adams has a completely modified Viper with a built Hemi, live axle, Lenko, etc. It has been up for sale on Ebay a few times. Hard to call it a Viper when nothing in the powertrain is Viper. But it is quick.
