Anything you're will to share with us today?
He told me a couple stories from when they would go out with the people writing articles for C&D, Motortrend, etc. and do testing, runs, that sort of stuff.

My favorite was one he told me about a TT gen. 2 they did that was around the 1k whp mark. They wanted to make sure everything was buttoned up and up to par before the client picked it up, but they had no where to test the car at the time. Well, their bright idea was to load it up on a trailer and drove out to one of the city's freeways sometime around 2-3am and unloaded it there. Full race suit, helmet, gloves, etc. they ran that damn thing like if it was Texas Motor Speedway! It doesn't sound as crazy now considering all the TX2K hype and whatnot, but considering they were doing this around 15 years ago it made me laugh at their crazy antics.

Darius I thought Adam was a car guy, he had to be explained about a freakin blow off valve? Not even the owner knew about the car. Might as well had 4 blonde chicks tell us about it.

Nice! My buddy has told me so many stories from back in the day when they first started doing these big Viper builds. Some shit you wouldn't imagine

ACRucrazy They have no fn clue what they are talking about. Damn it, the more of these Adam Corolla videos I see the more I dislike him.

And 20 years ago I was listening to him late night with Dr Drew and found him funny. But with this kind of shit... annoying.

mbccenter Well they know what they are talking about...lol

Never knew that, if I remember right, the 1000 TT's come with the option of various size turbo's including 76's.
When I saw the ad years ago, it stated the car needed "work" and to be "tuned" in order to run properly.
My guess is the shop that worked on the car next detuned to what it is now.
Obviously, whoever sold it to that buyer had no idea what went on with it as the guy seems to have no idea about anything on the build.

Venom TT with Adam Carolla

I was wondering whatever happend to this car after seeing it online at a discount due to it needing to be tuned/fixed ect.

As for the video, get ready to cringe at the guesstimates being thrown around as no one has any idea what they're talking about. Adam does his best to get these guys to give him some facts about it as they go through the interview.
