Whatever happened to this car?
 
So I was cleaning up my PB account and came across a few pics of this drag Viper ART was building for Ray 3 or 4 years ago.
Just wondering if anyone has any info on it since ART closed shop and Ray passed...
I was really looking forward to seeing this run, no doubt a 6 sec car with a good driver and track conditions.

Someone likely ran out of money, interest or brains. Usually the only 3 limiting factors in a build.

Seeing as it was Ray's build, I doubt money was ever an issue. I know ViperSpray had a few updates on the car as he saw it in person a time or two but after that, it seems to have disappeared.

A bit of history on this car, it used to belong to SW and is this same Viper in the video of SW racing Kean is his big single Supra.

This car is alive and well. Currently getting freshened and we are gonna do with it what Ray never got the chance to do! It will be making its first pass in memory of Ray Hoffman very soon! Ray was a great man and friend that I truly miss and I am blessed to have the people close to him ask me to head up this project in his memory.

Can anyone tell me how to change my screen name???? I have been unsuccessful thus far. ART is long gone, but DW is back. Keep your eyes open!

That's awesome! Glad to see you're back David. Now I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing this car make her first pass in Rays memory. +1 for the intake as well.

Sal my good man, you better get the GTS buttoned up, looks like some heavy competition is about to challenge your seat on the 1/4 mile throne...
:D

I was honored to take possession of this monster. I bought it for one reason and that was to accomplish what Ray set out to do. I called Weaver right away and started asking him all the details. While we were talking it was obvious that he loved that car and was proud of what he had built thus far, but regretted he never got a chance to finish it completely. He quickly offered up that he would help me with it because it was a chapter in his life that he never got to close.

This car created a lot of excitement with a lot of people, unfortunately it never got a chance to prove itself. Weaver and I are going to give it all we got to turn some good numbers.

One thing for sure, Ray will be riding co-pilot with a big grin on his face;)

jmoreno August 5th, 2014 04:30 PM

Kudos for you it was sad for ray to pass but I'm sure he will smile down when it's finished

Alkybanshee August 5th, 2014 04:51 PM

Very cool!
