Re: Why get this when you can get a Viper Venom 800 If you really had driven a viper as you claim you would have found out very quickly that the 800tt and every other viper handles very poorly at speeds above 160mph. Being that it is an american pos which was designed to fall apart so that Dodge can make even more money off of people who are silly enough to buy one which american car manufacturers have been doing since the 60's and always will do because there is more money to be made if it is designed to fall apart and they are usually the only ones who can fix it. For your remark that the viper will spank the Lotus GT1 you should be locked up in a padded room for all eternity. Think about it for a second the Viper with its piece of crap v10 should make 800bhp stock but no you have to have a engine conversion done which costs $55k for 830bhp and consiste of these add-ons- Twin Garett ball bearing, water/oil cooled turbochargers with integral wastegates, HMS Aluminum Air to Air Intercoolers, Complete Turbo Tubing, Polished Stainless Inlet Tubes and Hoses/Clamps, Custom airbox with K&N filters,Upgraded fuel injection system, HMS 3 in. Stainless Steel Exhaust System with Hi-Flow Catalysts, Polished/Ported vemon cylinder head with 2.02in stainless intake valves, 1.65in stainless exhaust valves, bronze valve guides, heavy duty valve springs & titanium retainers, Honed/Ported instake manifold, T&D 1.7 shaft rockerarms with hardened steel pushrods, HMS lifter upgrade, HMS aluminum flywheel upgrade, HMS 2-core radiator upgrade, HMS short throw shifter, Venom floor mats, valve covers & serial numbered carbon fibre dash plaque. Taig Stewart of Salt Lake City, Utah sent his Viper GTS to Hennessey Motorsports in Houston, Texas which does the conversion to have the engine upgraded to 800TT specs, the deal was for just the engine to be upgraded for $125,000 and nothing else. The completion date was to be 12 weeks after John took delivery of the Viper GTS, what the owner found out was that Hennessey decided to sell the carÂs engine, transmission, wheels, tires and hood in which they had no business of even touching. Taig Stewart is currently suing Hennessey for the $145,000 it took him to get his car upgraded even though his car still sits at Hennessey Motorsports untouched (The entire story and many more like it can be read at this site - http://forums.corvetteforum.com/zerothread?id=234868&page=1.) Now imagine things like that happenning several times over and over again, would anyone want to have a viper upgraded or even buy one after reading all of those lawsuits? If so then you dont see the whole picture of what is going on and you qualify as quite possibly the stupidest person/s on the face of this planet.
