Last night of Test and Tune at Atlanta Dragway tonight.....sure to be overcrowded.

I don't have much confidence in the car getting traction on the stock tires.....but I want to try it anyway.

If it doesn't run good at least it looks DAMN GOOD! LOLOLOL....and I will leave it on the trailer and trade
it in tomorrow for a Mclaren MP-4-12C. They go mid 10's stock and a used one can be bought at a 100k discount.

[image]......LOL I forgot my 14 year membership won't let me post pics.....see pics on a post I will put
on the "other" Viper forums.

You're really going to love your new McLaren. Solid 10's in all temps and you don't have to ride the clutch, pull fuses or clear CEL's.

The 12C should be awesome. Waiting till the spiders come down more and will trade my F430 spider for it. Did you not like the new Viper Tom?

I agree have a PDK 997.2 with EVO 650 hp package and it hauls the mail every time.

Ya,the McLaren more mph,but the Turbo S 5 cars ahead from the dig.Last race the one that was the real deal,the TS won 2 out of the 3 races over the McLaren.Last 10.8s both car and the TS got their first. Plus,that McLaren driver is about the best their is at the track(not average time for McLaren).. Saying both 10 second machines...

If someone buys a viper, you have a 6/10 chance they are going to mod it in one way or another. SRT must have forgot about that major point.
