To people who actually own a Viper

Would any of you happen to know how far you can push a bone stock Viper in a 1/4 mile? I've never seen one do it but supposedly people are getting Z06's Vettes as far as high 11's and low 12's with 405 hp, completely stock. Maybe when they mean "stock" they take out the stereo equipment and AC I don't really know.

It just keeps me in disbelief because supposedly stock Vipers are like mid 12's right? Can it be pushed further then that?

Well, I do not own one, but my father does. He had a 01 Zo6 and now has an 01 GTS coupe...granted the 02 Zo6 is another ball game, but the Viper is a whole lot faster than the Vette and kicks you in the pants harder on take off. Granted again I have not had them on the track, but on the street just mucking about the Viper is the killer of the two. This is not a slam on the Vette either, it was one fine machine also.

But there both awsome

Devil:

I have NEVER seen proof of a bone stock Z06 running 11's. Whoever told you this is probably full of poop. The best that I have ever heard a bone stock Z run is low 12's.

As for the Vipers, I have seen moderately modified Snakes that couldn't break 13 to save their lives. It was not the car's fault. You can place all of the blame on the idiot behind the wheel and their lack of driving skill. I know of someone who consistantly turns 11.7's (with a best of 11.55) on a bone stock Viper. In the hands of a decently skilled driver, they can turn 12 flats without a problem (obviously depending on weather conditions this can vary).

One of the main reasons the Z06's can turn decent times is because they are running 3.45 gears and a useless 1st gear. On the other hand, Vipers run 3.07 gears that are very long (1st gear hits about 60 mph, 2nd hits 80+).

I hope that clarifies things for you.

PS: By the way, I do own a '96 GTS Coupe.

I'll never find the website again to save my life but there was this one site that had like 4 or 5 people with 02 Z06 owners, posting times of 11.9 bone stock. Now bone stock they probably have there AC, Stereo, and spare tire off.

Even with a 45 hp and 90 lbs torque advantage I could see why a Z06 might be able to hang with a Viper. Z06 is like what 300, 400 pounds lighter, better gear ratio, better power to weight, and a much better compression ratio then the Viper. But I just think even with that its hard to believe it can run a 11.9. Maybe with 4.56 gears or something but if it has 3.45 gears like you say, man no way.

I found this site, and it's a little hard to decipher.

http://204.0.73.225/Godspeed/Lists/C5%20Lists2.htm

It's a list of C5 Vettes and their times with Engine, Transmission, Poweradders, Tires and Tuners all listed. I don't know what the criteria is for getting on the list, or if no "Tuner" means stock (I'll bet it doesn't...).

And of course this isn't "proof." ;)

Best I have ever seen in an actual test is by popular mechanics mag.

They did 11.97 stock gts. So, yes, if a car mag can do it. A good driver in his/her own car can do high 11's stock.

Well an ACR isn't exactly a stock Viper but it is close though...

11.8 can you imagine what that new one should do? I bet that sucker can get an 11.6, maybe 11.5. That would be sick.

I just can't wait till the coupe form of the new Vipers come out. And if they have the ACR option on them, can you say.....QUICK!!!!:sun:

I hope ther is at least a 0-60 in the mid 3's and 1/4 mile in the mid 11's.


Btw, have you seen the stats for the Hennessy 1000TT, he still amazes me with his cars.

Popular Mechanics did an interesting comparo a while back and posted some excellent numbers. It was the 97 GTS which I think is the strongest stock Viper. Articlehere (http://popularmechanics.com/automotive/collector_cars/1997/8/showdown_muscle_cars/print.phtml)

Some of those times don't seem right at all.

Cobra beating a Trans Am? This isn't an 03, heck it isn't even the latest style of both cars, not happening.
74 Trans Am, 290 hp, more like 225. 1/4 mile time would probably be slower.
Chevelle 454 with 4.10's running 13's. With a 4.10 gear ratio that car would run with the Viper, maybe beat it maybe not.
Hemi Barracuda only going a tenth of a second smaller then the Cobra Jet Mach I, I don't see how thats possible even with the Mach I having a better gear ratio. Barracuda has way more power and torque.

Yeah i oun a viper. Its a 98' gts. When it was stock i ran low 12's at the track.

Yeah i have a neon for the winter up here and as a daily driver. Wouldnt drive my viper in the snow its used for the track and summer driving.

I'd believe you, but why do you make a name called neonrcr95, and under vehicles owned not even mention the Viper. I would think someone who owned a Viper would put it out before his Neon.

I just thought of another question. I've noticed a couple viper cat-back exhausts use a cylinder type muffler, something similar in a way to what you see used on a Honda or other 4-cylinder vehicle. Main difference being those 4-cylinders use a muffler combined with the exhaust tip placed right at the rear of the car. So I was wondering, has anyone used a muffler (3-inch in and outlet) for a V8 car like a Mustang or Firebird on a Viper? Reason I'm asking this is all mufflers make a different noise and those exhaust systems for the Viper seem to make it sound like a 4-cylinder but has a distinct difference. So what if someone used a muffler that gives cars like Mustangs the deep V8 growl? Would there be any difference or no?

My cosines dad just bought him a black 03 zo6 and it is sweet. we took them to the track 2 weeks ago and he ran a 11.99 at 117.8 mph and it is bone stock. i have a 97 gts and these are my mods:
3" Corsa Exhaust
Precision Pro-Formance T-304 stainless steel Headers
6061 billet Aluminum Flywheel
Dual friction high performance centerforce clutch and throwout bearing
65mm billet Aluminum high flow throttle body
BTR-max flow intake system

And I am thinking about gears. I dynoed at 508hp and 512lbtq to the rear wheels. I ran a 11.28 at 124mph and that is with street tires. so I guess that you cant say to many bad things about a stock vett running in the high 11's.
