All are decent performing cars, and having put up that video, I was simply looking for feedback, not some snot nosed kid, thinking he's the s***s!
Sonny?, funny I have a 12 boss with a procharger, and some other bolt-on's, the hellion kits IMO ...... Well You get what you pay for.

I can respect the GN you once had, but again at 1000 HP , its gonna be crap on the street even with a 3000 plus stall, that company is long out of business , I can drive my viper everyday with 1000 HP , my boss puts over 600 to the wheels, and can be driven everyday run meth that I only have to refill every moth, completely hidden) , busa sounds a little different and is loud, as I use dump pipes, but rides normal and smooth , thanks to the ams 1000, and gen 2 busa ecu, which has much more tuning capability than the gen 1

The turbo you posted was not intended for example, you simply don't have any knowledge of new cars or technology ( I have an uncle who had a GN in the 80's, he is also stuck in the 80's

Lastly I don't have to post pictures or videos of girls with nice body's,( much better than that girl) because I only jump women like that

What would a 3000 lb. redone FORD GT, limited to say 1000 cars at 800+ H.P. do for their image in the sports car category? (Much less the uniqueness, and resale value of a very limited run of these!) Isn't it bad enough that a lowly $67K Mustang can hang with both the $125K Viper and the $100+K ZR1!

You also have to realize that about a decade ago, Saleen and Steeda Mustangs were wiping the road race course of the Corvettes and Vipers, and with that said, another $10-$15K worth of suspension work and tires, could very well do it again!
Chrysler makes the Viper because -gasp- it is profitable.

Wixom assy is closed, Ford is consolidating plants and closing some down.....No Ford GT will ever happen again. Ford has no interest in making more RWD platforms.....

Comparing a modified Mustang to a Corvette is stupid

Why, it's been proven in the 1980's and 1990's that the Mustang continually beat the Corvette on IMSA courses!

I find nothing about the Viper being profitable BUT I did find this....

Hell, even a hybrid Viper is possible these days. The obvious question to Press and his team would be “if these or any other opportunities exist to expand the Viper range and make it profitable, why sell it? Why not make it work yourselves?” Anyway, according to reports potential buyers include icons Roush and Saleen, names already known for their tuning and small-scale manufacturing expertise.

Aftermarket, 3rd party. Not OEM.

The reason the Viper was continued was because it IS profitable. Do you honestly think they would keep a plant around, spends billions on updating the car to sell it for a loss?

Either way, The Ford GT is not coming back. Not for the next 10 years at least.

Yes, a few after market privateers BEAT the factory Corvettes!

And this....

Essentially, SRT becomes a brand with its own vehicle, in this case the SRT Viper.

Why? Chrysler wants to elevate the SRT brand, and Chrysler sees the SRT Viper as the halo vehicle for the brand, said Chrysler spokesman Dan Reid.

“SRT is the high-performance end of the company,” Reid said in a telephone interview. “The whole brand philosophy and the branding separation between Dodge and SRT will evolve over time. This is kind of that first step establishing what SRT means to the company and what that car means to the brand.”

But I think there is another reason for dropping “Dodge.” Call it an international strategy.

Chrysler can market the car as the SRT Viper outside the United States without links to the Dodge brand and any baggage the Dodge name carries globally. The car might be able to command a higher price, too.

For example, the SRT Viper could be sold in a Maserati dealership in China or an Alfa Romeo store in Italy, and the name Dodge, tied to mainstream U.S. vehicles, especially trucks, will be nowhere to be found.

Reid won’t talk about international strategy. He said a little information will be announced in April at the New York auto show, where the redesigned car will be unveiled.

Over the years, a handful of Vipers have been exported. From my point of view, dropping “Dodge” gives Chrysler more options for selling the SRT Viper globally. And, more options generally mean more sales.

You do know what a HALO vehicle is?

As far as cars it's all preference! Go drive a 900awhp GTR it's makes almost everything feel slow on the street! I almost got a ride in a 1150awhp T1 car, but our schedules didn't align. It was supposed to be awe inspiring.

What's up with the comment I quoted in RED? You think all of a sudden you stop finding women pretty or something? I hope when you are 50 or 60 that you are head over heels for women your own age for your own sake.

As a late 30's guy I think you are breaking a few man code rules being such a d$ck. I've told girls the same "He's creeping on me.....ewwwww."

Man codes? Hooking up with women 7-10 years younger than me, is nothing, and you think that violates a man code, are you a woman? you must be old, as that is no gap at all,

I habe a 1000hp viper, had an 8 second fox, I've driven an 800awhp GTR ( took it easy in the viper, embarrassed it in the fox ), I've driven a 1500 HP gallardo, nothing, and I do mean nothing comes close to riding a 400 HP busa, most people can't handle a stage 1 240 HP busa, you have no place in this post, your "man code" comment is ridiculous.

The ams -1000 helps with that, the bike is 8 over and has Michelin power ones on it with hook better than than the shinko dr, but there will always be tire spin , unless I put traction control on it, which I would never do.
