1/4 mile times wrong.

Discussion in '2000 Hennessey Viper Venom 800TT' started by bodaciousbob, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. Motor Trend, had actually tested this car, and produced a 1/4 mile time of 9.99 Seconds (according in thier magazine), and hennesseymotorsports.com has a video of this car running a 10.33 E.T. IN THE RAIN, but all the other figures are "correct" (as accurate as we can possibly time)

    Yep, I have the video of the 10.3, and it did later run 9.99 after trying different launch RPMs and different shift points. I don't know how they decide what numbers to display and which are "offical" and what not.<!-- Signature -->

    I bet it could possibly do better than a 9.99<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. Re: 1/4 mile times wrong.

    It could. With some steeper rear gears it could knock off a few tenths. But who needs to go any faster than it already is??<!-- Signature -->

    That was with Cheater slicks. That's why Lingenfelter used Cheater slicks to try and beat that time withe the 2002 lingenfelter Corvette....and it did!, but not by much. I would love to see this viper and that Vette Race each other. That would be the race of a liftime!:] Who's with me? <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    Actually Lingenfelter would kill Hennessey by 7 tenths. That Vette has run 9.2 @ 150mph.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: 1/4 mile times wrong.

    I agree with u completely but 'kill' by 7 tenths. 7 tenths isnt exactly walking all over the Viper.

    Trust me when I say this...that 7 tenths is a LOT of time in drag racing.<!-- Signature -->

    What you guys are forgetting in that the 9.99 was run IN THE RAIN! Yes it had cheater slicks on, BUT IT RAN A FUCKING 9.99 SECOND 1/4 MILE IN THE RAIN! THAT IS INCREDIBLE
