OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand...

Discussion in '2000 Hennessey Viper Venom 800TT' started by SwedeLBROCK, Apr 30, 2003.

  1. ...is the 2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10. Anyone disagree?

    It is NOT a STOCK production front-engine car!!! It is a #$%#ing tuned car! I think there are a lot of cheaper cars that you can tune and get this amount of power! But it power doesnt make it a good race car! Who would want to go 380km/h in a nissan micra.

    I just wonder where this car gets the grip to do 0-100km/h in 2,7 sec!! Must have glue on the tires!
     
  3. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    grip? thats a good question. im not sure. ive got a video of the car running the 1/4 mile. it spins the tires in every gear.....THATS EVERY GEAR......when the guy shifts into 4th he still burns rubber. thats a pretty sweet car if you ask me. sure the single turbo corvette can drip it down into 4th doing 60mph. but whats the mph at the top of 3rd in the 800tt?
    anywho......under 85k? i dont know. unless you run by an old lady with a 1000tt or something and she doesnt know what its worth. you know that comercial of the guy that buys a muscle car for 10 bucks? i would freak out!!!! if someone knows a car that is faster for 85k or under then the next post better be about the car that is better, or someone replying to mine.

    Ok, some people don't get the title of this thread.

    The car swedelbrock is saying is the SRT-10, NOT THE 800TT.

    Now, for a front engine car, under 85k, performance wise, i don't think there's a car that can match it for its price.

    the SRT10 does the 1/4 in 11.77 secs. I don't think there's a front engine car under 85k thats faster.

    BTW, IMO, this thread should be in the SRT10 forum, not the 800tt. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  5. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    so where tell me where it says srt-10? im not stupid. i think i can read. because like you said. it should be in the srt-10 forum. not the 800tt's. someone should get there threads in the right forum.
     
  6. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    It says SRT-10 in his original post...
     
  7. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    If by fastest you meant track ability and/or acceleration, the Caterham R500 is faster.
     
  8. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    im sorry i did read the original post. sorry about the mix up.
     
  9. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    Yeah, you're right...it should have been in the SRT-10 forum...But that goes for some other topics in this forum too...

    Well it does 60 in 3.4 secs, and only cost £32,200. Now what does that translate into dollars? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  12. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    It sells for roughly 50,000 USD
     
  13. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    Ok, so that would be the car that gives better performance for the $$$. Besides that, are there any others?
     
  14. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    The Dax Rush cost lesst than the Caterham, and is faster. It has 700bhp/ton! Now some numbers:

    Horsepower: 350 bhp @ 10,000 rpm
    Torque: 217lb ft @ 7,000 rpm
    0-60: 3.53 sec. (Boost not turned all the way up)
    0-100: Under 7.5 sec.
    Handling: Said to be Go-Kart like
    Air Conditioning: Go faster!<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    Ok, besides those two, any others? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  16. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    There are plenty of kit cars, pre-built or otherwise that are faster.
     
  17. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    The title of this thread is a little vague.
    so narrow it down to Production cars, front engine, and under 85k. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Ultima GTR....

    I know, it's mid-engine....
    It is listed here at $150k, which must be wrong since a factory-built one is supposed to go for £60k. This is a car you can build yourself with about "any engine" you want.

    ...and it got a roof unlike the various Super-7 knockoffs <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  19. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    Marcos Mantis GT should give it a run for the money.
    but I've heard the company quit, anybody knows?
     
  20. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    OK, all these replicas of super seven such as the Caterham, are they really production cars? or are they kit-cars?
     
  21. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    Both. Caterham offers their cars either factory built or as a kit for you to build yourself. Most companies offer the same, but Caterham's build quality is known to be amongst the best for cars like that.
     
  22. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    Caterhams are some of the best kit cars, adn there is a guy I see driving around all the time in his. I have tried to talk to him before, but he is always just leaving, or I can't find him. Here is what Evo says about the Caterham, "Madder than Mad Jack McMad." Here is what Car Magazine says, "There's nothing to match a Caterham fo an exceptionally raw(As in pure) experience."
     
  23. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    I've now realized that this topic is quite stupid, cos there will always be these cheap super light cars with awesome performance.
    The Viper SRT-10 is a lot of bang for the buck but it's heavy as hell and not nearly in the same league as a Caterham.
     
  24. Re: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand

    Swedelbrock, yes cars like those are around.
    (btw, you're saying the topic is stupid, but You made the thread)

    OK, besides those made in small number light sports cars, are there any Production cars, that come from major factories that beat the srt10 under 85k? <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: OK, fastest stock production front-engine car under 85 grand
