Decision made!

Just started the purchase of my first Viper! Tough decision, but I went with the GTS based on that classic style. Found a lot to like about the new models, but just fell in love with that Gen II! Should fly out to pick it up in a couple of weeks. Pics to follow! It's a yellow 2001 GTS/ACR with 9500 miles, a few mild mods to include a roll bar and track transponder, Stop Tech Big Brake kit, Ron Davis radiator, Corsa's and high flow Random cats. To say I'm excited about the drive from California to Arizona is an understatement!

Sorry, not enough posts to put the URL from Ebay on here.

Thanks!

Will definitely post pics from the trip. The Ebay # is 120530226489. Final sale price was $39K, so I think it ended well for both parties. He also has a track ready 2001 Z06 for sale, but I owned a 2003, so I wasn't looking for another.
Sent me a nice video walk around of the car. Corsa's sounded great, even with the "creampuff" cam. Gonna be a nice drive from the SF Bay area back to Arizona!

Yea, already thinking about that....Got to get a better understanding of the differences in the suspension btwn the ACR's and standard GTS's. I know the shocks are adjustable (for rebound, damping and height?), and that the spring rates are higher (rear only?) than non-ACR's, but I don't know if I could simply replace the standard springs with a set of Eibach lowering springs and maintain the adjustable shocks? Seems doable, but the Viper is new territory for me.

I could opt for a few sandbags or cinderblocks.....

I have my ride height quite low and it rides beautiful. Make sure you get the adjustment tool for the shocks from the seller!
On that note does anybody have an extra?..........

Dirtysocks,

How did you lower it? New shocks and springs? OEM shocks and new springs? Yea, I've heard that adjustment tool is getting hard to come by. Hopefully the original owner knows where it is.

Yeah the OE stuff on a ACR is adjustable, just need to find one of the tools. If you don't have one check with Mike (99RT10&GTS), Chuck Tator, or Jon B. I'm sure one of those 3 can get you squared away.
