well i was at maple grove raceway saturday and it was a great day, my lady *was there* :D for the first time, nice n cool and got some great races. well as i am moving down the line for my 3rd race, i spot a viper come rolling in, first time i ever saw one at maple grove. i thought that was pretty cool but now it was time to line up so i ran my race, got my slip, pulled back into line and shut down, popped the hood and went back to the stands to hang out with my girl until my next race. i get over there and tell her about the viper, wondering out loud if it was gonna be racing or was just there for show. well we yammered for perhaps a half-hour and then i saw the lane before mine start to move so i gave her a quick kiss and headed on over to my car. walking up the lane i saw the blue and white... right behind me... i was like "oh man, i'm gonna race that viper!" i looked at it, still had the registration tag in the rear window and it was a gts. well, cut to the line-up, we lined up and i TOOK HIM off the line... and then i saw tail lights the rest of the trip :D anyway, i ran a 14.777, he ran a [email protected] faster than me. i got back to the stands and p said she saw me come out and then the viper and was like "oh man, sucks for mike". i told her it was all good i always wanted to race a viper altho i knew there was no chance of victory. she said after the first coupla feet it looked like i was just taking my good ol' time getting down the track. we laughed about it, anyway i wanted to share. safe travels everybody, good luck!

p.s. also ran the best time i've ever done, [email protected], faster every time!

haha, oh well can't expect to win that race. Thats a sweet time though with the mods you have. You must be a nice driver, and i guess that explains why you took him off the launch. :D

At least you got one. This was my summer of close calls because I nearly got to race multiple vipers but never worked out. I know I would lose but I just really want to try one. Sounds like fun though.

Well if that guy had just bought the Viper, he did a hell of a time driving it. Vipers are good for low 12's, and since he nailed that, I wonder with some break-in and more seat time if he will hit 11's stock!? Nice runs too!:)

Yeah, it's true. That little car moves my friend. 0-60 in 6.3 seconds, probably running the 1/4 better then most of our cars. I actually just had a baby and am tired of keeping my car up to speed, trying to make it fast, but only running a 15.9......man that sucks! I need a bigger car and one that is quicker. Trust me, I hat giving up the GT, but I think I just may have too

Yes, it is quicker then the NA 3000GT's. Beleive it or not, it's almost as quick as a stock VR4. The V6 3.5 puts out 240hp, 246lb ft of torque. The car weighs about 3250. It does 0-60 in 6.28 and the 1/4 mile time was 14.4 in a 5 speed manual. It's about 24,500 with some options, sun roof, spoiler, stuff like that.

I'm goin to be gettin a new car this summer also. It's either goin to be (rankings): #1. 93 300ZX Twin Turbo #2. 93 or luckily a 94 VR-4 #3. MKIV N/A Supra or #4. 95-98 Trans Am. Hopefully I'll find someone who will buy my car. I already talked to a few of my friends around here and they said they're interested (they maybe lying). I'll miss my 3kgt but I'm just ready for something else that's faster.
