335i vs Dodge Viper GTS
In africa, once again with the usual car friends, and a guy shows up in a bright red viper gts. It was loud, so we knew it wasnt stock. we start talking, and it turns out he was somebody i had met a couple years back on an american car cruise. At the time he had a c5 frc vette with bolt ons. Turns out he sold it, and just recently picked up this 98 viper gts a couple of months ago. It had an intake, exhaust, and 93 octane tune.
so another friend suggests we do a pull or two (he just wanted to know how fast the viper is). They make 450hp and go 12.2 @ 119 mph stock, so I was a little scared lol....but i was on my usual e85 mix and map 5 was kickin at 16.5 psi, so i said lets see what happens. We go out, and the viper wanted to do a 35mph pull....he was in 1rst and I was in 2nd. The viper also had very sticky 345 width tires and didn't spin at all. I spun a little bit at the beginning of the race, but it wasn't terrible. Viper started half a car in front of me from 35-130. I let off around :38 into the vid.

Good for you bro... The Viper wasn't power shifting but has good top end power it appears. Still you gave him a great run. KudosWe stay swingin...

Get me a higher quality vid next time and you'll make the front page. What's up with the viper looking like it goes to warp speed? What recorder were you using?Chrome Space Bar Issue: http://www.boostaddict.com/showthrea...338#post738338

Lol the guy in the viper couldn't stop asking me questions about my car after the run. He couldnt beleive it was that fast and so quiet. I still run the stock catback exhaust with secondary cats in place. popped my hood to show no meth either. 70k miles with no valve cleanings ever done too, although I am getting the valves cleaned tomorrow. (i think mr. 5 picked up like 10 whp after cleaning his valves?)
