The tranny is adapted from a Ram diesel with a beefed up torque converter and a two piece driveshaft in order to handle the 525 ft-lb of torque and tow 7500 lbs. [image]http://www.viperalley.com/attach/data/1/433717-school_020.jpg[/image]

I wonder if they will introduce an automatic to the SRT10 convertible when they debut the production coupe? Seems like they are trying to get the Viper to fight the likes of an SL? An auto. would firmly land it in the realm of consideration for those interested in an SL55 AMG. my .02

I really, really, really don't see that happening.

put that auto into the shorter and lighter 2 door SRT-10 truck and run 12's stock in the 1/4 :thumb: put smaller brakes on the back so you can fit a 16 inch wheel with MT slicks and put a 200 shot of NOS on and spray 2nd and 3rd gear only (for traction reasons) and you will see 11's /images/graemlins/thumb1

That's alot of really's.

Why wouldn't they throw in an auto? It would be a easy transition now that they already have it running with a Viper engine. It would also be a way to get more people into a Viper. People have been asking for years for auto's. Dodge never did it cause the Viper wasn't supposed to be for mainstream America. I feel that is changing and they want to sell some cars. Sure they can change the color shemes and offer more special editions in 2 years than they did in 10 years with the Gen 1 and 2's, but the fact of the matter is that the newer Vipers just don't have the appeal as the first gen's.

Auto in a viper? Great!! They should also add cruise control, cup holders, and little umbrellas that pop out of the doors. Oh, and a V-6 option for those on a budget or want better MPG. Maybe they could tone down the styling a little more. The lines are just too loud. What if I want to blend in with the vettes, 911s, and 3 series bimmers?

What the hell's so bad about a cup holder? It's a two-hour drive and the track goes hot at 0800. I gots to have my coffee (or Dew, whatever)!

The auto in the truck is a great idea. I wonder if they will ever pick up the 5sp auto from the SL.

But it being in the viper. The viper was never ment to be a "every person's car" It's a car that many would want but few would buy just because of it being so raw. It's not comfy, It's not PC. It's lude, crude and vile. That's the way a viper should always be.

I guess I have a lot more faith in PVO listening to it's supporters and their own common sense. The formula for the Viper has always been simple; V-10, 6 speed, RWD, and raw and purposeful in almost every way. While they refined the SRT a bit, the car now handles/brakes/goes fast exceptionally well - admittedly better than the old car, even to a Gen I/II lover like myself. Dodge has had this formula working in different iterations for 13 years now; when they add a coupe it won't have an auto option. And I think the guys/gals at PVO would kill the Viper program before they watered it down with shit like traction control, slushboxes, etc. That crap is for Vette's anyway. They'll save the high-powered auto-shift cars for MBZ and focus on their niche, which so far, has been small but obviously existent.

What Dodge needs to do now, IMO, is bring out the coupe with more power, start factory sponsoring the CC's in ALMS, and insert some racing history into the lineage of the SRT line. That would do more for sales and street cred for the car and the brand than anything else could.

Be nice, Freddy. This guy can not only match your punk ass dollar for dollar but he can actually say he EARNED it. Do what you want but if you get a bit too froggy with this one, expect to be brutally horse fucked.

Great idea! The only thing wrong with this pic is that the poor passenger has to go thirsty or hold their drink until they've finished :nod:
