He would give me $3000 for mods if I could smoke a Dodge Viper, any year. If I don't, I have to pay him back. Should I take him up? This is on a 1/4 mile track only not a 1/8th.

What ever you do, get video. Win or lose, I'd just like to see it.

Your best bet is the first year of Viper, the weakest. Even then, you'll get beat.

3 grand. I guess it could be done. You'll defintily need to do some hardcore modding. I don't know if 3 grand would be enough though.

Dad loves his Vipers and thinks they are "unstoppable".

Most run low 12'* to high 11'*.


Were talkin a BIG cam, headwork, intercooler, small *** pulley, a hell of a good tune, and proper track prep.
