I'm sure the mustang guys splooged all over themselves when the saw this. There is always someone faster and it's usually the guy that spent the most. :nod:

Re: VID of my 03 Cobra vs buddies Vipers, GT2 porsche, Lightning, etc etc!!

Not having a viper, but having a drag car, well, having had many drag cars, I find this debate kind of amusing in the "I don't have a dog in this fight" way- really, isn't the only way to compare these cars is to do it bone stock to bone stock? I had a rail with a SB mopar in it that would dust all these cars for less than a 10th of the money (whole thing cost me less than 10 grand in the 80s) - and I could just call the rail a "highly modified plymouth duster" - right?

I am impressed with the viper as a mopar lover more for it's all around abilities and brute force right off the showroom floor! If I ever do get a viper, I doubt I will modify it one bit- I have a drag car right now that will always beat the viper in the 1/4, depending on how much money I want to spend LOL My valiant runs 9s now, would run 8s for probably less than 5 grand more. Into the sevens for 20 grand, not including mandatory safety upgrades. However, nobody will argue that a 67 Valiant that originally was a grandmas car with a slant six is more of a sportscar than a Viper LOL

can you drive it around town? does it help you get laid?? these are the important questions here...who cares who is faster than whom, it's what you're going home with at the end of the night that counts and i'm not talkin' bout tha car willis... :thumb: /images/graemlins/laughing.gif

Totally understand that line of reasoning, and agree with you completely- however, never having NEEDED car to get hot young chicks, well, okay, enough bragging there LOL

I love Vipers, think they are one of the greatest vehicles ever made, probably the pinnacle of performance and sex appeal of all time- but are they really drag race material? Seems to me autocrossing or something like that, or heck, 24 hours at Daytona, would be the ideal for these cars. A nine second ride and over in a viper is like a nine second ride and over on a blonde, only satisfying even for you for that nine seconds only LOL

You want speed and a rush...get a bike. put the cars down. Drag cars can certainly dust bikes on road courses, but you watn cheap speed with the best thrills, get a bike....

but yes, there are so many ways to look at this.


US News published an article discussing "why" people buy the cars they do. It boiled down to they buy them because of the way it makes them "feel" not necessarily because of one specific quality (gas mileage, off road, etc) so....

that's why i think viper enthusiasts are what they are because when you drive the car....jesus, it makes you feel GREAT.

Actually, once the vipers get near top of 4th and into 5th gear its over. Mustang can't hang with up top at all.
you are totally right about that... 4th and 5th gear they pulled REALLY hard on me.... not anymore though :smooch: I got sick of John beating me so I went out and made sure it wont happen again, I dont care up to what speed we go to anymore :thumb:
