Page 154, December MotorTrend, Venom 650R SRT-10

"the package is vicious. Running on stock Michelin run-flat 19-inch radials, we drove the Venom 650R to an amazing 10.76-second quarter mile - making this the quickest stock-tired vehicle we've tested. We hustled the 650R to a 3.0-second 0-to-60-mph sprint that beats all-wheel-drive super-exotics like the Lamborghini Murcielago by over half a second."

I can't believe MT is actually learning to drive. They always have the suckiest road tests! Do you know what the trap speed was? I'll bet it was around 135 with those radials! That is power!

The quarter mile speed reported in the article is 128.67. The car ran some 130-132's, but as usual, the quickest run had the lowest speed.

Another good performance spec is listed... 0-100-0 in 10.4 seconds.

Wow...that 0-100-0 is a second quicker than the racecar MT900 did on slicks :bowdown:I imagine you would be deep in 9sec territory for the 0-100-0 if you were on slicks...maybe even an 8sec...yikes

Special thanks to John Myrick for allowing us to build our first heads/cam Gen 3 and first Stroker Gen 3 with his car. The results turned out really well. Its nice to see the SRT get some good press. "Quickest car on street tires...", I wonder what the Vette guys think about that title?

-This Vette guy is going to buy a Viper, I had to "settle" for the Z06 until I could buy the Viper, now the day has come. Should I keep the Vette and still buy the Viper or trade it in??? Those S-55 benzs are pretty nice thought too

Welcome to the club, VetteZO6. Trade the vette, buy the Viper and the S55/S600 Benz for daily hauling ass in luxury.

Saw the article... Very cool.

Seen the car in person. Even cooler...

But hey, John's an equal opportunity kind of guy. He has Vettes and Vipers....
