    Fully built car by UnderGround Racing. Started building the car in July of last year. Got it finished around end of last year. Put 4k miles on it this year. The only thing factory is the block and it's punched out to 510". Has twin 76 turbo's, billet half shafts, TH400 transmission, modified Gen 3 intake and tons of other goodies.

    Here is a video from 3 weeks ago at the local track. Would have been a possible 8 second run if it were a 1/4 mile. I drove it to the track, put c16 in it, put it on 18lbs and away we went. Car can go to 30lbs. This is on a real street tire, a Nitto Invo with a 20" HRE rim.

    I've since sold this car and have another one being built, an 05 viper convertible, with similar mods :)

    It was red, I used the car for grudge racing. This car previously had been 7.80's at over 180mph in the 1/4. I couldn't have people knowing that, hence the repaint.

    The new car I have coming was black and is going pearl white. Don't see why anyone cares what color it is

    Very cool. Saw lots of Viper's this past weekend but none of them showed up to the dyno day after the car show. A little disappointed. You would have smoked them all I think haha

    Actually this car won't dyno has hard as a 6 speed. The converter eats a lot of power. However, on a track, the auto will run over the 6 speed. The new car is JUST finishing up in paint. Might try a new computer system, which will delay things, but such is the nature of building a car.

    The other car is STILL being finished up. Had to pull the heads off and do some work so we could run a certain style plug. Putting on a wicked computer system to allow traction control. Should allow me to do some nasty roll on racing.

    Here are some early pics out of paint. It's lambo pearl white. Ignore the rims, they are just on to move it around:

    Hoping to have it done in 5 weeks.
