Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)I completely agree with you Tim. Our downfall has always been interiors, but like you said, the difference in materials is reflected in the overall price. That justifies, in my book, the difference in cost/materials.
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)So what constitutes as "better"? If you want a car with every creature comfort know to man, with heated/cooled ass massaging seats buy a freaking RV. Cars, real drivers cars, are meant to be driven and driven hard, simply for the fun of it.
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)Matty, the actual top three PRODUCTION cars with official times are as follows:
1st Viper SRT-10 ACR
2nd Lexus LFA Nurburg Ed
3rd Nissan GTR.
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)I can deny that and I will. Lets just take a look at the top lap times from around the world, shall we? Oh, would ya look at that! America is at the top of almost ALL of the lap times. Hmmmm. That's strange, I thought European cars were better???
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)If it wasn't for the induction of the Viper in 1992, the supercar/sports car world would look very different. I can promise you that. While racing in the 90s & '00s it won time & time again causing Ferrari, Vette, Porsche etc to make serious changes
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)The individual Dodge/Chrysler/SRT dealerships had apply to sell the new Viper. Then, if accepted, their Viper techs had to go a new training program for the new Viper. Very few dealerships were accepted for this year from what I understand.
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)More than likely it has something to do with only a select group of certified and specially trained dealers are going to handle the new Viper. I doubt any of the European dealers qualified this year.
Hey Europe: No SRT Viper for You(Jan 24, 2013)This is terrible reporting, portraying opinions as facts. You should never blindly guess about something like this. Previous sales records and preorders from overseas VCA members indicate there definitely is a market for the Viper in Europe.
Hennessey Previews New Viper Venom(Oct 01, 2012)It's the Gen IV's and Gen V's VVT that pose the biggest problem along with their ecu's. I don't think you understand how complex tuning a old school pushrod V10 engine with VVT is.
Hennessey Previews New Viper Venom(Sep 30, 2012)Look up his rating with the BBB. That's all the proof of his crooked dealings you'll need. He's a genius marketer. Tuner? Not so much. His magazine cars are legit, but customers cars often get less then half of the parts/power promised.
Hennessey Previews New Viper Venom(Sep 30, 2012)The Gen V has factory 355s on the rear. Those numbers are doubtful at best. I don't see how they think they can tune this car. The ecu is still locked. Even the Gen IV Vipers ecu is still locked. Hennessey is a farce. Just an excellent marketer.
SRT Tease 2013 Viper Interior Shot(Mar 30, 2012)The Viper, according to Dodge and the VCA, is an American made Exotic. When you insure one, it comes up as an exotic. It's a silly thing to argue really. All that matters is that it stays King of the Ring.
SRT Tease 2013 Viper Interior Shot(Mar 30, 2012)Yea, cause whoever that is, is the only person in the world with enough creativity to think of that. Never mind that I've been a Viper nut since they debuted in 89. I've probably forgotten more about them than 98% of people here KNOW about Vipers.
The Dramatic End of a Gullwing Replica(Mar 27, 2012)No, it doesn't hurt the value of the real thing in most cases. It damages it's image because for every single accurate replica there's 100's of disproportionate hack jobs that could turn people off to the model they're try to portray. It's principle
The Dramatic End of a Gullwing Replica(Mar 27, 2012)There's a special place for morons who don't read before they post too. This was a illegal REPLICA. No history has been lost. No damage done. Just one less cars' image tainted by kit car copies.
EVO Explores the Porsche 918 Spyder Prototype(Mar 23, 2012)If yall noticed at the beginning of the video, everyone was looking at the 10 year old Earth Killing, Gas burning car instead of this hybrid pos. Potential performance numbers be damned. Not all "progress" is good, people.
GTA Spano is Spain’s Supercar – and It’s a Ferrari Beater(Mar 12, 2012)The exhaust will make no deference in it's overall feel. It can make it louder, more aggressive yes; but it can do nothing for it's firing order that makes it buslike Check for yourself: http://www.soundanswers.net/Tech_Papers/SAE%201999-01-1652.pdf
GTA Spano is Spain’s Supercar – and It’s a Ferrari Beater(Mar 12, 2012)It's very possible, just not from the factory since they are bound by the EPA and phony Obama regulations. Which if you had read my posts Mikey, you would understand how that affects car manufacturers and HP numbers.
GTA Spano is Spain’s Supercar – and It’s a Ferrari Beater(Mar 07, 2012)Lol at the two tool bags below me. This is the same odd firing V10 as in the Gen III Vipers so it's not gonna sound on bit "better". As for the HP difference, boutique auto manufacturers have more wiggle room with emissions than the big guys. Also..
The Chevrolet Volt: On Life Support?(Mar 05, 2012)I'm sure every driver was saying/thinking; " Yep, there goes my tax dollars down the drain just so a few pompous, a$$ hole, hippies can think they're saving the world.."
Corvette Evolution, Part 5: C4 - The First With a Modern Look(Mar 05, 2012)So what? The C4 is the redheaded step child of Corvettes. It's lack luster, underwhelming, grossly dated and underpowered the day it rolled off the assembly line. There's a reason these cars sell for much less than every other generation.
The Volt is a Political Punching Bag, Says GM Chairman(Jan 27, 2012)Oh please. The repeal of the Glass Stealgall Act caused the housing market crash, thus the economy to crash. Not 24 years of "Republican greed". Every party is self-serving, it's up to you, as the voter to make an educated choice of the lesser evil.
The Volt is a Political Punching Bag, Says GM Chairman(Jan 27, 2012)Well said Boyd. All these people supporting him now should move to China or the old USSR if it still existed cause that's the way we're headed if this a$$-backwards, entitlement mindset continues much longer. This current generation makes me sick
The Volt is a Political Punching Bag, Says GM Chairman(Jan 27, 2012)Yea they're trying to change things alright. Running the US into the ground and then rebuild as an socialist, anti-capitalist country. Not one thing Obama has done in office has been pro-America. He has spit on our constitution multiple times.
The Volt is a Political Punching Bag, Says GM Chairman(Jan 27, 2012)You're opinion is just that. An opinion. The facts state otherwise. He has slowly but surely turned us into a socialist state with an insurmountable amount of debt. We've never been through a time when we've lost more freedoms than now. Obama=fail
Dwyane Wade Receives a Free McLaren MP4-12C(Jan 22, 2012)The 99%ers are worthless, socialist, idiots. Theyre a plague to our society and the old American dream that has just about been forgotten. If you want a life like that then bust your ass and make it happen instead of bitchin about those already there
Dwyane Wade Receives a Free McLaren MP4-12C(Jan 22, 2012)\/ exactly, what's wrong with being happy for others? Just because it's not you're sorry a$$ doesn't mean you get a free pass to complain about it. People these days
Dwyane Wade Receives a Free McLaren MP4-12C(Jan 22, 2012)... I would know, I had a football scholarship and played for two years until I couldn't play any longer. It's high stress, long nights and early mornings. You have no real life. It's just whatever sport you play and classes if you have time for them
Dwyane Wade Receives a Free McLaren MP4-12C(Jan 22, 2012)- in the gym, in the film room, at practice, in meetings, ect. It's no easy task at all. They should be rewarded for their sacrifice and dedication. They don't get holidays or sick days or family emergency leave for the most part. It sucks really...
Dwyane Wade Receives a Free McLaren MP4-12C(Jan 22, 2012)Wooow. Get over it people. Stop whining and being envious of successful people. Athletes college and pro, dedicate their lives to the sport while they're actively playing. They easily spend over 100 hours a week away from their homes and family-
Corvette Tows a Baby Corvette(Jan 18, 2012)You should get one Patrick. I had an 01 plain Jane coupe for two years and loved it. It wasn't a Z but the sound of that ls1 and the feel of the 6spd was awesome to say the least.
