I don't disagree with you guys, I was just curious if you all had spotted this type of thing occurring.

I personally don't care about mileage as long as I put it one the car and enjoy every mile.

Preach on brother, these cars were made to be driven. I dig your style

I had to charge my battery for about 2 days because I haven't driven it since about September of last year. It took almost 10 minutes of throttling in the garage and driveway until it would settle down and idle properly. Then, we rolled out for a short spin and a fresh tank of gas. GTS #200098 will be 19 years old next Wednesday. It has 36,070 miles on the clock, runs great, and still blows cold air.

10 minutes? holy crap man. maybe I'm fortunate, but i can start mine up and just drive away in 3 seconds. Of course I keep it at low revs until the oil is warm.

Isn't that called driving it lol I'm pretty sure the alternator puts out more juice when you're slightly above idle.

An alternator is not a good device for charging a dead battery even if it wasn't a Viper with its notorious problems dealing with low voltage.

GTS Dean knows what he is doing.

I think Dean is referring to the tendency Vipers have to 'forget 'how to idle if the PCM loses all power as in a dead or disconnected battery. It usually takes a few minutes of driving (and a few restarts at stop lights) to relearn.

Weird, didn't know that. My battery died once from leaving the headlights on, and it did take 30 minutes of being connected to 2 cars with jumper cables @ 1500rpm and a jump pack for it to finally fire up. Once it started it was good to go though. I felt like I was jump starting a semi though.

Simple, let's say someone buys a Gen 2 with under 20K miles on the clock. Their goal would be to keep it under the 20K for resale value so when they decide to sell, they get what they originally paid for it or more if they added a few upgrades.

Not that I agree with that, but that would be your main reason why somebody would want to disconnect the OD as they rack up said mileage...
