ACR vs. GTS

All, just a few quick questions. I'm looking at several Vipers right now and would like to know the pros and cons of an ACR vs. a GTS. I know the ACR has some suspension tweaks and no fog lights as well as the BBS wheels, anything else? Also, do ppl sell the BBS wheels easily? If so, for how much?
Thanks
Peter

Re: ACR vs. GTS

The wheels seem to be worth more than the difference between the 2 models.

Re: ACR vs. GTS

Chad, would it be safe to assume that I could get around $2500-3000 for a set of ACR wheels with tires? I am weighing the options right now and trying to figure out if it's worth paying $2,000 more for an ACR (as opposed to a GTS). The ACR has 14k miles (Silver/Black 1999) and the GTS has 12k miles (Black/Black 2000). I can essentially get into the GTS for $2,000 less ($52,000 for the GTS and $54,000 for the ACR) but the ACR has the "good pistons" (which I hear are good to about 1000 rwhp or so) and has Brembo brakes, stereo system, and an aftermarket exhaust......... ORRRRRRR, do I go for the 01' GTS Sapphire/Silver stripe (bone stock with 8,000 miles) for $54,000?????
Thoughts?
Peter

Re: ACR vs. GTS

stay away from the 2000. It has nothing to offer.

The acr is a nice ride and in todays markey low 50's is a good price for a clean car.

By far the sweetest car that you have mentioned is the 2001 with stripes. With that low mileage you could get away with a piston swap if you wanted to mod it heavily.

I think the BBS wheels looks awesome on a Viper and the ACR is the best all around Viper, especially the 99. The only thing you will miss is the non abs brakes that the 2001's come with.

Re: ACR vs. GTS

but the ABS is a crappy 3channel, not a 4. really doesnt offer that great of an advantage, especially when an experienced driver knows how to threshold brake effectively, he can out-stop an ABS equipped car. in the rain or snow...thats a different story...

Peter, I think you need to work the price down a little on all of the cars you mentioned. Sorry if that steps on any toes.

I beg to differ. Wait till some idiot pulls out infront of you and makes you do a panic stop with a non ABS car, you will wish you had ABS.

Stay away from the 2000 GTS. I had one. Worst version Dodge put out, had nothing to offer.

Re: ACR vs. GTS

LOL Ray, yes in fact, his was one of the cars I was looking at, unfortunately he messaged me that it's sold! It was great talking to you via email and trying to work out a deal, i'm glad you got your asking price Ray! :thumb:

So is the general concensus the 01' with the ABS?? I figured if I get the ACR I can sell the BBS wheels for $3k or so and pick up a set of 19's. All just before I put the snake down for it's TT treatment!

Re: ACR vs. GTS

I'm partial to the '99 ACR, but the blue/silver is nice too. I'd skip the 2000. Not that it's a bad car by any means, but like others mentioned, it just lacks some of the good stuff that other years have to offer.

Peter,even though you don't have a Viper yet,let me be the first to congratulate you on getting one. I hope to join the club soon as well but I'm curious to see how the new coupe turns out.

Re: ACR vs. GTS

I may put my 2001 up due to a change in plans for the future. It has 14K miles and still under the factory warranty. Has a $8000 Stoptech brake kit, a BTR rollbar, 5 pt. harness on both seats, Corsa exhaust with RT high flows, and SRT rims with new tires. Alot of other little things as well, PM me if interested. I may be putting formally in a few weeks.
