There is a intresting thread over at the morg asking when will the 08 viper be in some of the auto mags squaring off agaist the z06.

According to some of them it has already happen and will be in a couple of the upcoming issues of various mags. They state that it absolutley crushed the Z in acceleration and in one of the tests it trapped 130 in the 1/4!!!

I know how yall guys feel about mag tests but I thought I would share and see if any of you had heard this??

Yeah the current Z, but thats a no brainer. I would sure hope the new 08 Viper would be able to beat it since the current ones can stay about even with it depending on the tests. It's the newer Z that will be the real challange. :nod:
Why evenone is so hyped up on the current Z is beyond me, it's not the real measuing stick for the 08 Viper.

I agree, The new Z will be the best competition for the 08 viper but maybe by then there will be an ACR version or what ever they want to call it out by then.

Im just intrested in what the wind breaker crowd has to say when they see the results.

Im sure they will blame it on the driver.:D :D

You gotta figure that the hook-up from new PS2 tires alone are worth 1 or 2 less 10ths ... and then with 600HP and a higher redline ... it will be quicker than most folks expect

Also, the new PS2s might be good for a few '03-'06 vs. Z06 rematches ...

Makes sense to me. The '08 should make somewhere between 520 and 535 rwhp, depending on driveline efficiency. Current Viper loses about 11% from flywheel to ground. With the new trans and better/lighter clutch, the '08 may do even better.

My supra was able to run low 10s @ 133 back when it only had 560 rwhp and a set of drag radials and weighed 110 lbs more than my Viper. It ran high 10s on a set of 255 x 17 Bridgstone SO2s.

So, considering the '08 will have better tires, better trans, better rear adjustable andjustable suspension and 530 rwhp, I have no trouble believing that the '08 will trap around 130 and be capable of high 10s, bone stock, in the hands of an expert driver.

I'd like to see an LP-640 and an'08 Coupe go at it.

We've built numerous SRT's with heads/cam/headers that make in the 530-550 rw hp range - which is likely to be the power range of the 600 flywheel hp 2008 Viper. SRT's in that range of power have run in the 11.4 @ 127 mph range.

i would be very surprised to see the 2008 Viper SRT run much quicker than that.

I will let you know whats better when I get my 08 Viper in a few weeks. I have a Z06 as well and will be testing them against each other as soon as I get the new Viper. Should be interesting!

Wow, I hope it runs a bit better than that considering some well driven Z06's have run that... :(

The 08 Viper has 615HP and 550+RWHP. Don't underestimate it. With some factory bolt ons its 680HP with no problem. Expect 680HP for the 09 Viper to compete with the Blue Devil Vette. The 08 will eclipse 11.4 in the quarter and smoke any Z06 times to date bone stock on street tires.
