how come they dont.......

Discussion in '2000 Hennessey Viper Venom 800TT' started by 360modenavert, Dec 24, 2002.

  1. how come on supercars.net they still dont have the new lingenfelter vette. than people will stop talkin bout this car and talk bout the vette. and also than ppl can post there dumb comparisons between the lingenfelter vette and other STOCK cars.
     
  2. Re: how come they dont.......

    i wouldn't know why they don't have the new 427tt vette on, but they do have Lingenfelters 650 twin-turbo vette here.

    BWT, technically the viper 800tt and the 427tt vette are considered 'stock' because they come from either hennessey or lingenfelter Factories. (merc. AMG cars or porsche turbos are 'stock' even though they're modded)
    so i don't know why you would say "dumb comparisons between these and stock cars"
     
  3. Re: how come they dont.......

    yeah, it's true. but why would you be stupid enough to want dumb comparisions in the forum? to me, that's pretty dumb.
     
  4. Re: how come they dont.......

    wait, why is this thread (which is about the 427tt vette) in a DODGE VIPER FORUM??

    This thread should be in the Lingenfelter 650 forum. Go there and you'll find a couple threads about the 427tt.

    good point.
     
  6. Re: how come they dont.......

    good point.

    How are Porsche turbos modded? That's how they come, straight from the Porsche factory. And yes, the 800tt and 427tt are tuners.

    "How are Porsche turbos modded? That's how they come, straight from the Porsche factory. And yes, the 800tt and 427tt are tuners. "


    They're all turbocharged cars, so does it matter if some are 'stock' because they come from the factory, or 'tuned' because they come from somewhere else??

    (it only matters to ppl who use the argument "the 800tt is a modded car")
     
  9. Re: how come they dont.......

    There is a BIG difference between Porsche turboing their own cars (or AMG for that matter) and Hennesey. When you go and buy a Porsche car, it comes with turbos. Same with AMG, you buy the cars with all the performance enhancing extras.

    Thing is, with Hennesey and Lingenfelter, you have to buy a stock Corvette or Viper and send it to their respective tuners for the turbos. Neither Hennesey or Lingenfelter are contracted by GM to do any of this work, so they're in no way stock.
     
  10. Re: how come they dont.......

    I know all that, but what i'm saying is considering those cars are ALL turbocharged, does it matter where they come from??

    (you can buy a 911carrera, or a 911turbo so Porsche is taking a stock car and adding turbos to it, but because Porsche does that the car is still stock)

     
  11. Re: how come they dont.......

    That's about it. Most people (including myself) prefer to compare cars as bought. If I go ahead and turboed a Civic, compared it to a firebird, and then used the excuse "but Porsche turbos their cars" I'd sound pretty stupid, right? In theory it's the same thing, I bought a car, modified it, and then compared it to cars that were bone stock. Comparing a car stock to stock is personal preference, espescially when there are plenty of other tuners of Vettes, 911s ect for them to be compared to.
     
  12. Re: how come they dont.......

    True, but would it make sence to compare lets say a 911turbo, and the 800tt, and then say the comparison isn't fair because it isn't stock vs. stock (which it isn't) even though both cars are turbocharged??

    (i'm just stating that the argument "stock vs. stock" doesn't make sence when the comparison is between two turbocharged cars) <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>


    "If I go ahead and turboed a Civic, compared it to a firebird"

    IMO, the civic would need the turbo to be compared to a firebird. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  13. Re: how come they dont.......

    well, i don't necessarily think that a car, if it has turbo, means that it can't be stock. Maybe i would understand if you defined turbocharged? cuz a lot of cars are turbo charged like the WRX. nad that is stock.
     
  14. Re: how come they dont.......

    True, but there are millions of ppl who try to make the civic a sports car. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  15. Re: how come they dont.......

  16. Re: how come they dont.......

    i don't like Honda...the NSXs are kinda good...but thats about it!
     
  17. Re: how come they dont.......

    Maybe they know the rednecks will get too exited and start comparing the refinment of a ferrari to the beastiality of these things, i think it should be here too, but thats just the only reason i canthink up
     
  18. Re: how come they dont.......

    You know what...your kinda right...
    Except that Toyota, Mazda, Holden, Chevrolette and Subaru, don't have nothin' to do with snakes...
     
  19. Re: how come they dont.......

    i think all american cars r shit
     
  20. Re: how come they dont.......

    well, your entitled to your opinion, NOW LEAVE

    (HOW MANY TIMES DO I SAY, WHY DO PEOPLE POST ABOUT A CAR THEY HATE, i mean just go to a forum to a car you like, IMO.) <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  21. Re: how come they dont.......

    I hate it when people make posts like this and don't even give any reasons for their posts.
     
  22. Re: how come they dont.......

    These kinds of cars are not even close to stock and your reasons for them being stock don't make any sense. What your basically saying is that if i go and buy a viper and have someone else make modifications to it, its still stock. I don't think so.
     
  23. Re: how come they dont.......

    You completely stayed off the topic. All's that is trying to be said is that a porche turbo is stock and the viper 800tt's and corvette 427tt's are not stock.
     
  24. Re: how come they dont.......

    I know, but i'm just stating that it would be stupid to compare a 911 turbo or something with a 800tt, then say the comparison is wrong because you're comparing a stock car to a modded car, Even though both are turbocharged. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  25. Re: how come they dont.......

    So threads like 800tt vs enzo, and 800tt vs. F50 shouldn't exist, OK.
