    A big thanks to Doug Levin at the V-10 Nationals. Doug was very helpful with driving tips and offered great track side support. This was my first real drag strip expierence. I hoped to get into the 10s. I am happy to report that i did it with street tires (10.92 at 145) and took second to Tom Welch in the street tire shoot out. On slicks I pulled a 10.30 at 141 with a 1.59 60' time.

    Needless to say I am very pleased with the car. Hats off to Doug Levin :headbang: :headbang:

    Bump for Doug Levin. A class act all the way. If he had one flaw it is that he got in the way of my videos of the burnouts. But so did everyone else. :)

    Back at you!

    I wanted to telephone you and everybody that attended but we're trying to recover from sleep deprivation :cool:

    I'm so impressed with you and Joseph Dell! I can't believe how well you did. Not that I'm surprised :laugh: but wow!

    Thanks Chuck!

    I'm glad you disassociated me and the burnout's. I know my mother wouldn't approve :cool:

    Nice seeing you again!

    Way to go Rob! Your car is, by far, the fastest I have ever ridden in. Now you need to get down to Gingerman on May 21st. We'll be there.

    Doug knows no less than to be the gentleman he is. If you are having a problem, need a pat on the back or just a friendly word Doug Levin is always there to help. My Viper has never been in Dougs shop but he has given me time and help and has never faltered or failed the Viper community.
    And
    another important fact
    Doug builds some killer cars.

    Just another two cents worth. Doug is he man, I called him Sunday on his way home from the V-10 Nationals to cure a problem during the KCVCA dyno day and he went out of his way to give the needed advice over the phone. Thanks again Doug.

    Doug is one hell of an asset to the Viper community. My car also has never been to his shop, but I know I can always call Doug up and bend his ear and he is always there to listen and give advice. I'm just waiting for the day that I can help him out in return. Thanks Doug!

    You track numbers for the amount of time you've spent on the track are impressive.
    Doug just keeps building them better all the time. This is what keeps me coming back to him. He offers so much customer support and i feel if i ever do have a problem he will be there for me.DLM power!!!
