    Stock 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 Convertible runs 10’s

    March 24th, 2009

    Most would agree that the latest Dodge Viper with its dyno proven 600+ HP and 3,450 curb weight “should” be able to run 10’s in the 1/4 mile while still in stock form. Although there have been many attempts that have come close, nobody had cracked into the 10’s in a bone stock Viper until now.

    Jamie Furman took his brand new 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 convertible with just 100 miles on the odometer out to Maryland International Raceway during a private track rental to give it a try. After 4 runs in the very low 11’s, he ended up running a 10.92 @ 129.79 MPH with a 1.76 60′ time. Weather was in the 50’s for the run with a Density Altitude (DA) of around -915 feet.

    Jamie’s previous attempts at a 10 second stock Viper pass was done ins his new 2009 Viper ACR back in October 2008 running an 11.07 @ 129.8 MPH. By looking at the timeslips, it looks like either Viper can make it into the 10’s with the proper launch, shifting and weather. Congrats to Jamie for a great record breaking run.

    Z06 is lighter and the Viper is pretty well known to have the (stiffer) suspension set up for road racing, not drag racing. Also note the MPH difference.

    Are you saying the Z06 is set up for drag racing? :hsughno:

    They are similar cars in similar price brackets--I think the comparison is valid. Of course the Z06's lighter weight contributes. Power to weight is real talk.

    I'm surprised that wasn't pointed out initially. It only says his name on the timeslip. :rofl:

    Uh no, I'm saying the viper has a stiffer suspension setup which could make it harder to launch vs the zo6, that and the fact it has huge torque avail at idle, sure the z06 has torque at idle but the viper V10 doesn't have a torque curve per-se, it has a plateau ;)
