    '
    you did read the comparison right? viper = faster, viper = better braking, ford gt beat the viper in slalom by less then 1mph. and lest we forget, the viper is half the price :wavey:
     
  16. You obviously have no idea how OT works.

    BloG can't be banned.
     
  17. It beats the fucking Ferrari it is significantly cheaper than and designed to compete against. What does it take to be a "godly" car?!

    I guess you didn't read it either. The Viper is only faster in the 1/4 mile at the end by 1/100 of a second. The GT has a higher trap speed and beat the fuck out of the Viper all the way up the 100 by 3/10 of a second. I imagine that is where the supercharger started to loose it's efficiency. Ad a 200 dollar pulley and you are in business. I do agree, that is amazing stopping ability shown by the Viper.

    id like to see the 2 of them to do a 1 mile run, i think the viper would win judging by how it caught up and passd the gt in the 1/4.

    I imagine so that if they did a top speed run that the Viper would beat it to a point. What is top Speed on the Viper? I think the GT is 200mph if I read somewhere. And then you have the drag issues from the Viper being a Vert. So it would be a close call.

    someone is on my side, YAY! i really cant understand why you would buy a ferrari when you could get a viper or a z06, even a ford gt, for half/.25/.15 the price. its all hype. AND you can get the lingenfelter TT vette which runs a 9 flat, and that only costs 160K, that'd own a ferrarrrarrrarri, the Hennesy Venom 650r and or 800TT are the same too, not to mention the hennesy venom 1000TT
     
  25. When will the viper get any technological enhancements like... more than 2 valves per cylinder?
