Vettes are better than Vipers

    Consider the following:

    You are at the drag strip in your nice 800TT viper. Your buddy pulls up in his Z06 or his nice custom vette. Once you reach the finish line (2 seconds faster than your buddy) the victory is not going to be given to your friend because the viper has a better legacy or w/e the hell ur talking about. Pagani Automobili has been around for a few years in Italy, and yet you dont talk about how their cars suck because they havent been in production that long. A good car is a good car. Indeed, cars deserve respect, but that is only a minor factor in determening which car is better in a comparison.

    no freakin way, a viper will smoke a vette any time anywhere, ur crazy, u must be to think that a vette will beat a viper. FOOL
     
  3. Re: Vettes are better than Vipers

    Doesn't anyone realize WHY the viper is so much more expensive than the vette? IT'S BECAUSE THE VIPER IS SO MUCH #$%#ING BETTER THAN THE VETTE!!! The viper wastes this POS in 0-any speed, 1/4 mile, and top speed. Anyone who says vettes are better than vipers, even Z06s, needs to look at the numbers. Also the viper looks way better than the vette. Hi Kobus.

    true the corvette lingenfelter tt 725 hp runs a 8.9 1/4 mi and the viper hennesey venom tt has 800hp and runs a 10.7 1/4 mi. wow look how bad the vette kicked the vipers ass. and top speed the vette runs 240mph while the viper runs 235. and the vette costs less and handles alot better.


    VIPERS SUCK!

  6. Re: Vettes are better than Vipers

    THINK B4 U SPEAK!! Thats because they are a newer design; the concept came out in the late 80's whereas the vette has been here since the early 50's.

    the corvette was built to sell to the middle-class american whereas the viper was designed to perform on a higher level. If ur a fan of the corvette, more power 2 u, but the stock viper out-performs the stock corvette. If u wanna talk about mods, i dont deny that lingenfelter makes more mods for the corvette, making it better in terms of a tuner-car. The corvette also has better hp/liter, but that doesnt change the fact that the viper has a better hp/weight ratio:
    ---------------------------------------
    04 zo6 Commemorative--289.29 bhp per weight
    03 srt-10 conv.--326.22 bhp per weight
    ---------------------------------------
    The vette is only better in terms of bhp/liter, but that doesnt make it a better car.

    that isnt because corvettes are superior, its because lingenfelter knows how to make a faster car. I think it has somethin to do with the transmission; if u check the stats, you will see that the viper is about 100lbs heavier & has about 36 more lbs/ft of torque. this makes it peel out more & it takes too long to catch. Also, the 800tt has 830hp & the lingenfelter has 802 (enough to compensate for the weight difference) but the flaw is in the tranny, im convinced
     
  10. Re: Vettes are better than Vipers

    this guy who started this is a serious pot smoker vipers are all way better than corvettes
     
  11. look at the new 2005 Corvette i think that it is evenly matched with the Viper even though there have been no official test they would put out a good show. i like vettes more but vipers are awesome. i think that if they come out with a 2005 Z06 it will have tons of power that might beat the next gen viper the 2003 STR-10. its all a matter of what you like more you people are so ignorant just admire a car for what it is not how good it is i mean i like minis a lot are you going to try and tell me your vipers better i think not so just leave it at that.
     
  12. Re: Vettes are better than Vipers

    How bout 0-60 in 1.97 seconds with a Lingenfelter TT.

    thas what i thought....

    common?! tell me how many 2002 corvette zo6 in electron blue have you seen in person? me only 3

     
  14. Re: Vettes are better than Vipers

    WERE TALKING ABOUT A BONE STOCK VIPER AND A BONE STOCK VETTE. NOT A LINGENFELTER TT VS A VIPER. BESIDES A VIPER LOOKS BETTER THAN A CORVETTE WAY BETTER HOWEVER A CORVETTE WINS WHEN IT COMES TO BANG 4 THE $BUCK$ YOU CANT BUY A VIPER THAN GET A VETTE...SIMPLE
     
  15. wtf you talking about dipshit?!
     
  16. wtf are you complaining about!?!?! its a street legal race car, meant for speed, handling etc. its main focus was on performance not luxury and BS like that!! if you want that, go for a maybach or something.
