    Yes, now go here:

    http://www.hennesseyperformance.com/hennesseyperformance/ListItems.php?cart=ZDvqWkVa&DoThis=Brake+%26+Suspension+Upgrades&ActionReq=Where


    And there's the suspension package. Now IMO, anyone who gets the engine package will get the suspension one (and they do to handle the more power)

    Those upgrades mean:

    skidpad: 1.06
    slalom: 75.1
    braking from 60: 110ft

    Remember, if you don't think these times mean anything read the comparo i posted, where the GTS had the highest slalom, skidpad, and took 1st on the track.

    Look at the comparison i posted with the GTS.

    "the old viper thats a beast" Beat a 911T (993) and Ferrari 355 ON THE TRACK.

    IT TOOK 1ST PLACE.

    Keep in mind, that acceleration by the viper and 911 were .1 of a second apart in the 1/4.

    And the viper came in last place in 60-0 braking.

    BUT IT STILL WON ON THE TRACK.

    It didn't win by acceleration, and it definitely didn't win by braking, so it must've won by HANDLING.

    very informatice post viper 1426. the henessey is an amazing handling machine and the fact that it has beaten imports on the track pruved how well it was modified and how well it handles.i always had an appreciation for vipers.

    dude the dodge viper might have the best accel but this is street racign ur talking about, u needa car which can drift and handle good, i say a 4WD would have a better chance on the streets then the dodge viper

    The 800tt comes with:

    Slotted 13-in rotors all around
    With Wilwood six-piston calipers
    Penske adjustable coil-over shocks
    Eibach springs

    These mods. translate into:

    800tt:
    Skidpad: 1.06g
    Slalom Speed: 75.1 mph


    On the street or track, the 800tt Could handle.

    Re:


    A high spec Ultima GTR will spank the Viper 800TT/1000TT. Assuming, both of these cars were running on street legal tires, no slicks, or semi slicks...

    The GTR just set a world record of 10.3 seconds for 0-100-0, 2 days ago, beating the Caterham R500 record of 10.73 seconds (production cars). It was on running street legal tires.

    0-60 = 2.8 seconds
    0-100 = 5.9 seconds (how many street legal cars with street tires (no slicks or semi slicks that could hit 0-100 in under 6 seconds?)
    100-0 = 4.4 seconds including reaction time

    Top Speed (Capable of): 200+ Mph with the record breaking spec.
    377 ci, Chevy Small Block engine, 644 hp.

    Under 100k USD, built it yourself. 140k USD (Factory Built)
    The GTR/Can-AM are road legal all around the world, including the USA. It's even road legal in California. You'd get more attention driving an Ultima GTR or Can-AM then a Dodge Viper. Overall, performance, looks, and price, I'll take an Ultima GTR.

    There are videos of the car breaking the record at www.pistonheads.com. Come to the Ultima forum and talk to the owners themselves.
     
  7. Re: Re:

    Those are some good specs. for a car, the GTR might even be able to beat a 962 dauer. (that would make one heak of a debate though)

    The ultima GTR, another one of the very few cars that can beat a 800tt.

    put a 426 hemi in ther and let them do that up then u will se a real car. it may specialize in drags but if u tune up the suspensiona and other things on teh car it could dominat all around.
     
  9. Hey hemi dude, how old are you? It sounds like the Hemi was 30 years before your time...

    The cars of today benefit from lightweight parts, mainly aluminum, and Hemi's (non-EFI) are horrible on gas with their compression ratios
     
  10. Even with horrible gas mileage, in a cuda, they ran 13.1s
    Also, if you have a hemi, you really don't care about fuel mileage.
     
  11. I beg to differ, as my pops has a '70 superbee and it's the gas that bankrupts him........

    Anyway, 13.1 would have been a golden number for most hemi 'cudas, as they didn't have enough grip with polyglasses in the back, lol.
     
  12. 13.1 for a cuda was a golden number, considering they had 3.54 gears out back, not like a road runner with 4.10s
     
  13. Used Lamborghini Diablo you could find them on ebay sometimes for about 45k

  15. I have nothing to do with the pic of that hotrod!
     
  16. On the track i do think the Ultima wins.
    But in a drag the 1000tt comes out on top.

    But in a drag the 1000tt comes out on top.
     
  18. I would rather have an Ultima than a Viper because i want to do more than just run in a streight line.
     
  19. Just watched top gear with the new viper, It lapped the track slower than quite a few cars with 300hp or less, I cant quite remember which cars but i think the lotus exige was one of them. It came in about 15-20th overall, It was also said to have terrible build quality and was terrible to drive, supposedly one of the worst handling cars they have ever had on the show.
     
  20. Can it set nurburgring records? What the 0-60 time? How much fuel would that think drink in like 2 minutes? 1000hp through rear wheels in a front heavy car... by definition it cant handle.
     
  21. best street legal car that is made by a theif and a cheapskate who also makes very unreiliable cars.
     
  22. thats complete bullshit. theres faster supras than this out there.
