  1. Re: boy is that tough!!!!!!!!!!!

    when i look at the Shelby Daytona Coupe i think of the first viper
     
  2. Re: boy is that tough!!!!!!!!!!!

    the first viper was the 1992 RT/10 roadster available in one color that year, RED. I think you mean the 1996 viper GTS coupe, cause that would make sence (considering they're both coupes and have the same paint scheme, blue w/ white stripes) <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    I personnally am a huge fan of the cobra, and don't consider it a muscle car. I'd more place it as a race car, as that's what its original intention was.
     
  4. Re: boy is that tough!!!!!!!!!!!

    yeah, the cobra was set up for the race track (that's what carroll shelby had in mind) but that's why i feel they shouldn't have tried to bring it back (meaning the series one), don't get me wrong the series one (like in your avatar) is a great car, but not much of a tribute to the original (considering it was underpowered, with a CHEVY ENGINE the 243 ci v8 that was supercharged, i mean they should've used a ford engine) plus for its' price 120k, it should've done better then 12.8 in the 1/4 (you could buy a viper or vette that could beat it) but i do think it's a good car. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Actually the Series 1 has more power than an original cobra 427 in street trim (525 hp), and the Aurora V8 does have a reasonable amount of torque. It wasn't an attempt to bring back the cobra, but rather to make a new age cobra, and I think they did a good job personally.

    Also, the s-charged Series 1 is faster than either the Vette or the Viper (in a straight line, there hasn't been much race testing on it yet, other than it pulls more than 1g on the skidpad)
     
  6. Re: boy is that tough!!!!!!!!!!!

    actually the series one s/c was tested in the october 2002 issue (new cars for 03&04 issue) of MOTORTREND along with the 427 s/c and 289 fia:

    series one:
    base price: $142k
    price as tested: $186k

    engine: DOHC V8, supercharged, 4valves/cyl
    displacement: 243.7

    torque: 400 @ 5000 (est)
    weight, lbs: 2700(est)

    performance as tested:
    0-60: 4.41
    1/4mile: 12.6 @112.8
    Braking 60-0: 130ft

  7. Re: boy is that tough!!!!!!!!!!!

    well...now that i think of it...they're ok...but i still prefer Vipers...BBB...Bigger Badder Better!
     
  8. Re: boy is that tough!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have that issue. Keep in mind the Series 1 is under constant developement. There is a more recent article found in Road & Track (the issue where they drive the Mclaren, the f40 and the 959) that claims 525hp, although performance didn't improve in that article from the test in Motor Trend (Road and Track seems to have times slightly slower than most other magazines, however)

    As to the acceleration, Guibo mentioned a run of 3.71 0-60, and although I never found that article, I trust him well enough to take it as fact. It was in the 360 Modena forum.

  25. Re:

    i guess 1300 just wasnt enough for them lol Leavin topped off his last Stage IV with a 500 shot direct port nos system it makes 830hp withought that nos system i think he's catchin up to SVS and he has only 1 supercharger on that viper
