    Yes, I am a Senior Member now.

    I have as many post as the 2003 Viper SRT-10 has cubic inches, or horsepower. (505ci v10, 500hp)

    Well, it's spring break, so i won't be posting the rest of this week.

    I'm taking a break from my usual 24/7 posting here in this forum alone. (i spend to much time on-line) <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

  6. Re: I Think its retarded that...

    I don't know why everyone goes to extra lengths to OVER glorify this car. Its still good but its not great... there are many many better examples of modified cars that go even faster still. Don't delude yourself any more than necessary.

    Its not about the site, its about the car. If this car was a drag-only car then yes it would be valid to have the time it posts wearing drag slicks. But no this is a road car 100%. All the cars on here are road and track cars.
    If you put the same cheater slicks on any cars on this website you'd get better scores alround. Drag racing radials can not be driven on the road for any distance, or around a corner.

    this car made the 2.4 sec run on 'cheaters' they are not complete slicks they do pass for street legal tires mickey thompson designed them so they would b street legal.

    you say "there are many many better examples of modified cars that go even faster still" why dont u name a few of these cars and list their prices along with their stats (track & strip) and mind u they do have to b street legal cars b/c this is a street legal car and the hennessey has proven its self on the track as well as the drag strip
     
  8. Re: I Think its retarded that...

    DOT regulations must be very loose to allow the slicks to pass. There is next to no tread on them. Most any real comparisons would be done on the track wearing racing slicks, so I don't see how acceleration on mildly treaded drag slicks are relavent. Either way, I don't want to bring any of that back up, so I'll just leave it at that.

    As for faster tuner cars, the Gembella GTR Biturbo ran a 7:32 around Nurburgring, which is almost 12 seconds faster than the Pagani Zonda. Gembella has since released a newer model (Evo 750 if I'm not mistaken) which, as the name suggests, has more than 100 extra HP over the model that set the fore-mentioned lap time. There is little to no chance the Hennesey could match the Biturbo's lap time, never mind the EVO 750. There are plenty other fast 911 tuner cars (The autothority Porsche placed ahead of the 800tt in the 10,000hp shootout).
     
  9. Re: I Think its retarded that...

    all hennessey fans are well aware of that but the tuner 911s are fairly expensive compared to the 125K base TT and simply put viper buyers DO NOT want a porsche they are very different cars when compared but there is a guy in cali who has invested about 150K into a gen II rt/10 i am not sure what year but i do know its a GEN II it has a supercharger and allwheel drive its track times are claimed to be marginaly faster than the CLK GTR which should put close to the track timings of the tuner porsches but once again viper owners simply arent lookin for the refinement and track manners of a porsche
     
  10. Re: I Think its retarded that...

    you said: "why dont u name a few of these cars and list their prices along with their stats"

    Why would you say something like that if you were simply going to nit-pick through subjective issues like refinement and manners? As for the supercharged Viper, from the sounds of it, it wouldn't even qualify as a tuner car but rather a hot rod of sorts. For a car to count, it has to at least be available to the public and not just a one-off, otherwise the TVR Speed 12 would be considered one of the fastest cars in the world, now wouldn't it?

    Either way, I simply complied with what you said, and named a couple faster tuner cars. Simple as that.
     
  11. Re: I Think its retarded that...

    the speed 12 is a great car with great styling too but ...... a viper is a lot easier to get a hold of and quite affordable in comparioson. the TVR is much better than a stock GTS or ACR and in some aspects the TT but is it really worth the slight performance edge?
     
  12. Re: I Think its retarded that...

    the mickey t cheaters are not complete slicks they do have tred the tires are made to met DOT regulations and are fairly streetable as long as yer not drivin in a snow storm or on extreemly wet surfaces a lot of the NHRA street rod class races require the cars to have tires that would b streetalbe.
     
  13. Re: I Think its retarded that...
