CruisingRam said: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
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:tom86zt said:Actually, once the vipers get near top of 4th and into 5th gear its over. Mustang can't hang with up top at all.
