    I just took delivery of a new 2014 Base SRT Viper and a 15 SRT Challenger after selling my 08 Vert (I have the best wife!). All I can say is WOW! You can't even compare the two. I was amazed how much better the ride is on the Gen V compared to the Gen IV. I know my 08 Vert flexed alot because of the Vert, but the Gen V drives amazingly. I only have 50 miles on it, so I will have to put some road miles on it before I hammer the throttle. Since the car sat for 15 months and has no miles, should I do an oil change due to the age of the original oil? Also,looking for Sidewinder II or 6 spoke Venom wheels if anyone wants to swap or has a set for sale. Thanks!

    Congratulations on both cars and choice of Spouse.. sounds like you have made some great decisions in life and yes changing that oil would be another one.

    I'd change the oil at the first 1000 miles...........
