A lot of people here may not like them, but the Viper sure can make a heck of a lap time around the 'Ring. Very impressive.

Sorry for introducing facts into your guys' little fantasy world.

Just so you know, not all of us want to participate in your Dodge circle jerk session in which WeEzie and KoK0 are in the middle with their faces having bull's eyes painted on them.

So if a car is designed from the factory to have an adjustable suspension for road racing and the suspension is adjusted for a particular track that car is no longer stock? EVERYTHING on the car including the tires is factory supplied parts that come with every ACR-E off the showroom floor.

If you are to compare the times of various cars, then you should compare cars that are set up the same.

ie: pure stock from the factory against pure stock from the factory and modified against modified, not pure stock from the factory against modified.

Some people like to compare the C7 Z06's times against the C6 Z06 and C6 ZR1's times. It's not a valid comparison if one of those cars is pure stock from the factory and the other car isn't.

Same goes with comparing times between this particular Viper against others. Apple to apples, as the saying goes.

I asked this in the C7Z06 ring time thread and got no answer. What makes you think it wasn't stock? What makes you think this Viper isn't stock? Without any evidence, denials just smell like sour grapes.

Yes it's very impressive car. I guess if corvette built a strict purpose built vette for that track and spent tons of hours tuning it for that track the results would be similar.

Wonder if Viper will be in business long enough to sell at least a few.
