Some big announcement at sema?

Did I miss something? I was under the impressing from reading on the different forums that there was going to be a huge viper announcement at sema. Was it the car that everyone already knew about? I thought the announcement was gonna. Change everything.

Love the acr btw but nothing astounding there. I thought we would here something about engine or tranny.

My impression from talking with Ralph, at VOI, is that the acr would be significantly different from the regular viper, not so. I guess since he is gone things have changed.

I talked to various Dodge people at SEMA. The ACR there was a styling exercise, to gauge interest. Its mechanicals, as shown, had nothing to do with the intended car. It appears more likely than not that they will build it. It did look great in person.

The biggest announcement seemed to be the funny car and the racing effort.

Better profit on them. Why waste money on something that has small margins if any at all. What makes me laugh is they intended to get Porsche, etc buyers in without marketing??

Im really curious to know, where is this supossed "supercharger" that some of these big posters have been spewing out about? Supossedly it was going to be shown at the VOA event. That was cancled during the event due to "VCA crying". Then it was going to be shown somewhere else, and that didnt happen. Then we hear it was going to be done at SEMA. Well, we all know now that it didnt come to fruition there either. So, what the fuck, guys? Where is this "supercharger"? Also, where is this "new top" that Dodge was supposedly going to do?

Feels like we're in middle school and playing the game of Telephone.

My favorite is when someone at the VCA allegedly hears something and tells us that something big and wonderful from Dodge is coming, they know all about it, and how it's a shame they can't tell you about it, you poor plebe.

I had heard that the S/C and some other "aftermarket" engine performance mods, were squashed by the new boss Tim K.

Transmission strength and cooling. Change pulleys, and keep a spare driveline in the garage.

63 more hp and 800 fewer pounds wouldn't be slow.

My take is that there was no reason to release any of these items without the authorization to "tune" them using the Mopar PCM. If the PCM cannot be used to do it then no use talking about it. I was hoping that the release of the PCM would be announced more than anything then we could have had some fun.

Hi Mark,

I spoke to someone yesterday at Tremec about transmissions and learned that even their Magnum XL 6-Speed Transmission will only hold up to 700 lb-ft torque capacity. Thus the reason that they stayed close to the 700 mark.
