Why don't you go to brainerd and race. But Not the silly 1/4 mile track, do the full road course.

If you thought you got your *** handed to you drag racing, just wait till you hit some corners....

Your Dad is a little narrow-minded about this comparo isn't he?
Tell him screw the $3k, make it an even-money race. Give you the difference in price between your car and a Viper. Even with that $3k you're still talking about $30k-$40k difference in price(brand new) between the LSS and a Viper, depending on year.
For that kind of money, you could get your LSS down ino the 10'*.

Dad doesn't know sh*t about cars. He kinda has a ricer mentality. He thinks because it looks mean and has a V 10 it is "unstoppable". I was watching over my old neighbors Z06 one day and I told him this could smoke the Viper. He said, " I don't think so". I just shook my head.
