    How is it "UH...NO"
     
  2. Re: 255 MPH UH...NO!

    Yes, guy. It was actually tested up to that speed at Mid Ohio Speedway by John Lingenfelter (friend of Reeves Callaway and now-popular Corvette tuner). If you don't believe it, you must not know much about tuned cars.

  10. Re: 255 MPH UH...NO!

    The svs stryker viper stage 3 beats this???
    You're right...260 mph!!! 418 kmh!!!
     
  11. Re: 255 MPH UH...NO!

    im not suprised, this things got 3.3 liters on the vette, not to mention that the vette was made in the 80s. but seriously top speed doesnt say much too me. any car can be made to go that fast, it all depends on the redline and the gear ratios. Its the torque that decides how quickly it gets to that topspeed, the stryker might only have a 5mph advantage but the acceleration owns the vette

    man my 1984 toyota tercel would spank that shit. OK i admit, i have a self esteem problem. Zoom Zoom
     
  13. Re: 255 MPH UH...NO!

    lol this thing tops 235mph and runs high 9's the linegfelter tt will kick this things ass with 300 hp less running a 8.9 and 240 mph
     
  14. Re: 255 MPH UH...NO!

    stryker 3 more like cockblower 3


    vette rules over viper any day
     
  15. Re: 255 MPH UH...NO!

    the stryker isn't street legal
    so it doesn't take the record for fastest street legal car from this and it also says "estimated" top speed and was never tested to go that fast
    something more amusing is that the lingenfelter 427TT corvette with less power and still being street legal beats the non streetable 950 hp stryker viper

    but obviously that doesn't matter....for some reason that no one knows
     
  16. Re: 255 MPH UH...NO!

    the only problem is that the stryker 3 Viper is a salt flat dragster. and the top-speed is estimated but all I can say is WOW. That is the most impressive Viper I have ever seen. But I would still prefer the Sledgehammer.
     
  17. Re: 255 MPH UH...NO!

    and yet somehow, its still just a car...
    perhaps theres a reason i havent seen any girls post replies on this website... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    Probably not, though we can't be sure. It says an estimated top speed of 260 mph. Its unlikely that the SVS can go that fast. If it really could, they probably would have tested it and got an official timing to get the world record.
