  1. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    Like I said before this thread is stupid. The two can't be compared. They both got there pros and cons and for the people who say this Viper is good and there is nothing bad about it well your wrong.
     
  2. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    well this thread is about the 2 cars being compared, and when you do that, the 800tt beats the 911GT1
    besides, could you explain why these cars can't be compared? and why ppl are wrong when they say the viper is a good car?

    hey have you heard of the word biased? here are the figures for the strassenversion(road version) GT1

    0-60 3.4
    1/4 mile 10.9
    Skidpad 1.07g thanks to these figures

    http://www.flat-6.net/view.php?model=996&sel=996+GT1+Strassenversion+(1998)&tab=spec

    and of course, road & track dont lie do they? of course not, well here's your proof.

    Viper1426 you would take a bullet for a viper and you bend the truth so much it isnt funny and Guibo you stick up for the car you love, thats good patriotism <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    914 6:
    Those figures in the back of R&T are for the race car. Not the street GT1. Find the actual article, and you will see.


    And here's just a hint of what you'll find:

    "To put the GT2 into perspective, the only cars in our Road Test Summary that can accelerate faster are million-dollar machines such as the McLaren F1, and two purpose-built race cars: the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR and Le Mans-winning Porsche 911 GT1."
    http://www.roadandtrack.com/reviews/roadtests/articleDisplay.asp?articleID=99

    According to C&D's drive, the street 911 GT1 isn't going to be anywhere near the one in the back of R&T.
     
  8. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    And when it comes to braking a non-ABS Viper, let's just say R&T doesn't know what the hell they are doing.

  10. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    LOL, how am i bias and bend the truth, when i was comparring the 800TT to the 1997 Porsche 911 GT1street version (which i got from fast-autos.net, and they wouldn't lie would they), not the Strassenversion GT1.(there's about a 56hp difference between the two cars.)
    so now:

    911GT1 strassenversion:
    0-60 3.4
    1/4 mile 10.9
    Skidpad 1.07g

    800TT Venom:
    0-60 2.4
    1/4 mile 9.99 sec @ 138.95 mph
    skidpad 1.06g

    650 Venom:
    0-60 3.3
    1/4 mile 10.47 sec @ 132 mph
    skidpad 1.06

    ok obviously the viper 800TT is an amazing car, but i would rather have the 911 GT1, i don't really care if the viper is a little quicker and faster or if it handles better. the 911 GT1 is so rare i would much rather own one of those, cuz any shmuck with 160 grand can go buy a Hennessey
     
  12. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    well......can't any "shmuck" with $912,000 go buy a 911GT1?
     
  13. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    not exactly, they didnt build too many, my point is that vipers atleast until recently were in mass porduction and still it would be easy to get one used, but Porsche only made around 30 911 GT1s and i doubt most of the owners are willing to give one up
     
  14. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    vipers are still in mass production(if making around 600 a year is considered mass production, plus they're hand built)
    only now dodge is just making the new SRT-10, and they droped the GTS coupe.
     
  15. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    dude, what's your problem, and do you realy think i don't know whats goin on with vipers, please my dad works for chrysler. and 600 a year is a hell of a lot more than 30 total, so lay off. besides the viper is one of my favorite cars, i went to the SAE introduction of the SRT-10 and i got to sit in it before most people saw a real version
     
  16. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    no problem, it's just that you called ppl with the money to buy a 800tt Venom "shmucks" <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/disappointed.gif"></A>
     
  17. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    ok, thats not what i meant, i simply used that word because it would be much easier to attain a viper 800TT than a 911 GT1, not to say that it would be easy to afford either
     
  18. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    I'm sorry but i dont think then is much that can change my mind about a Viper...
    Vipers are big and bautiful...and i will love 'em 4 ever!
     
  19. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    i will like the viper for ever to(hopefully it will stay in production for a long time, like the vette has for 50years!)

    BTW, is it just me, or should this thread be over (i mean....the 2 cars were compared....)
     
  20. Re: This vs. 911 GT1 street version

    i think it's fair
    both these cars are twin-turbo, so it's not like a modified car vs. a stock car, because both are modified.

    also, what the 911 lacks in hp,(200 less than 800tt) it weighs about 700 LESS POUNDS than the viper.
