I understand why coupes, but why not offer a convertible option?
You're kidding, right?
No, I just think an ACR convertible would be fun
As the ACR is the more track oriented Viper, SRT probably decided that the coupe body style was better suited given aerodynamics, chassis stiffness and safety (some clubs won't allow a convertible at all or unless you have a dedicated rollcage).
I agree that a convertible ACR would be fun. To me running a convertible at a track day has advantages over a closed car: I get a better sense of my speed, can sense when cars are near me better (fewer blind spot issues), better ventilation on hot days esp when wearing a suit and it's just more fun.
After adding safety equioment like a rollbar and 6-poits, I tried to get some of the benefits of an ACR by adding the Stoptech brakes, Sidewinder rims, etc. The thing I'm missing of course is the downforce which is a huge factor in the performance of the ACR. Still, so far, the vert has been really satisfying on the track. Still, this coming season I may add another set of ACR rims with the Sport Cups for dry weather days and keep the other rims with PS2s for cold or wet weather track days.
its like the 360 and the challange stradale or the 430 and the scuderia.....
wait. there is a vert scuderia.......crap
it would be no point since the ACR is all aero dynamics and If it would be a convertable it wouldn't have good aero Dynamics.
get a vert with aero group,its so classy looking
It looks similar but I believe the downforce generated by the ACr is much higher than the aero group parts.
ur right,theres someone on this site that has a purple with aero option,those verts look so cool with the option,they also look cool with aftermarket hardtop.
I love convertibles. I would buy one
I think they should have an ACR package on the vert
noy just the aero package
I remember there were a couple gen2 acr's done in verts. Would be fun as a gen4.
Yes,i agree,having all coupes 2 fordgts with 1000 at rear wheels,thats just what i did.
I got a vert with aero,having 5 vipers every gen.I love this car?
I have to agree with rcl4668, the vert is a ton of fun on the track. It's kinda like running an open wheel car. I have run my '08 with the top up, top down and the AP engineering hardtop in place. Top up sucks, because the headder bows hit you right on top of the helmet. The AP hardtop has a little better clearance. But there is now substitute for the open top.
Until you roll the car....
There was only one ACR in an RT/10. If I am not mistaken, it was a VCA raffle car, and it was grey or graphite, black rims, and......i forget.
I still want an ACR vert..
Just wondering why you thought this was such a bad idea?
True, that is why I would highly recommend installing a rollcage or something like the Autoform rollbar.
The purpose of an ACR is to track it IMHO. If you want put on the aero parts, to much was spent making the ACR the fastest street car on the track to mess it up with a convertible.
Open top race cars have been around for a long time..
LOL, it's fine when the car is designed that was. Ironically my first Track Viper was a Black 2000 RT/10
It would be a GREAT idea to build up the next VCA Raffle car as a special ACR convertible! Make it Viper blue with a black center and red driver's stripe.
I also just thought about the upcoming Ferrari F430 Scuderia convertible when reading this thread.
Some people (like me) just prefer convertibles, and we want them to be great performing cars too.
That is correct. Only one. It came with the wheels this way also. The winner still has the car and is on the board here.
I want the car beside the car pictured above.
CAPSCLOWN? Is that you??
I think Ive got the closest thing to an ACR Vert...
It needs just a bit more blue tape.
But seriously it's definitely close to an ACR roadster.
From those pics it looks like the front splitter is angled up and thus would create lift. It is just the pics?
All the pieces are available, go for it !!!
Then you could set the track record at the Ring and get a suntan at the same time.
dude you have my favorite vert hands down!!
and its venom red- even better!
