Sean Roe told me to make a post here so youse guys with overpowered Vipers could help me. I'm going to Norwalk Viper Nationals in a couple of weeks and have discovered my Viper with the Roe Supercharger has excessive wheelspin if I give it more than 1/4 gas pedal in 1st gear from a stop.

If I launch at 1000-1200 RPM I have no bog at all, but if I get smoothly on the gas to more than 1/4 pedal I will go from a little wheelspin (good) to excessive wheelspin (bad) pretty rapidly.

I'm probably going to run my street Viper just like I drive it - on stock Michelins. With my level of inexperience (never ran my Viper on a dragstrip) I probably will get beat by the more experienced drivers in the Mod2 class, but I'd like not to embarrass Sean Roe, Yellow Vipers, and myself. And I'd like to beat Snake Bitten's NOS Viper at the very least. (Hee Hee)

So give me your advice on launching my Roe Supercharged Yellow Viper.

Thanks.

I'd help you, but I want Gerald to whoop your ass! /images/graemlins/laughing.gif

If you are determined to run street tires, your only option is judicious use of the right foot, or somehow limiting your boost.

First of all, drop the tire pressure in the rears; that will help only a little, but it will help you hook up better. Norwalk is a very good track,IMO. I'll be runnin' in the regular bracket class. My lowly stock Gen1 MUST be the slowest Viper ever made. It sucks getting owned everytime I run a GenII with a mod exhaust. /images/graemlins/frown.gif

There is some sticky stuff you can buy to put on the tires for the track, it's been a long time since i have used and i forgot the name. Once you start hooking up then you will start finding the weak link, you will know you found the weak link when you start spending money on broken parts.

Buy some drag radials for goodness sake! Why would you want to run street tires and run much slower times? It bothers me when people do that! You spend all that money making all that power and you can't even put it down!

I certainly can and do put down all of that power, but not from a dead stop. I drive my Viper on the street and the track, not onto a trailer and off the trailer when I get there.

My Viper Tech is going to take me drag racing next week at test & tune. He runs a Dodge Dart that goes 10.5-10.7 ET and 120-125 MPH and has been doing it for many years. Hope the weather is good and everyone else goes to whichever dragstrip we aren't at so I can get a lot of practice runs in.

Kenny, I lol when when I read your post - I just thought uuum, that's the point - a supercharger does give you more power. /images/graemlins/smile.gif
