Me? I am going to open a business in or around March. It's non-car related, but I hope to profit enough to buy a Viper within a few years.

What are you buying an Arco Gas station out in El Centro??.. Gas stations I hear make really good money, due to everyone that passes through there that heads over to Glamis..

I am gonna oxidize you! Na though, the bumper isn't oxidized. It was repainted in 2009. It's in good condition, I think the sunlight was just too much for the exposure. Yeahhhh. That torn seat is still there. Thanks for reminding me. LMK when you get nominated for SRTOTM so I can vote for someone else

No one missed him when you think about it :)

There weren't any threads saying "Oh where is 03REDsrt4" - just joshing.

In fact don't you have some video and such to post up about your corn popper in slicks racing some rice rockets there in lettuceville?

that is quite a spanking; how humiliating!!

You can even see from your wobbling go-rookie suction cup camera (720p?) and the weak shine on your oxidized paint reflection where the BLUE SRt4 - actually has powerband and massive torque occur twice OR in other words how with each shift the BLUE SRT4 humilitates you the farther he gets down the tracK (ahead of you)

Oh then on the 2nd run when you were probably thinking you had a chance, OH OH - the BLUE SRT4 just knifes you on the final few seconds.

Then yet MORE humiliation on the third run. I can't watch anymore............

Did you shift at redline or earlier? YOu can't tell with the external camera.

Well maybe your VIPER will heal your wounds.

Lol @ Robert.

My best was 12.7 @113 IIRC. Steve ran a 11.7 @128.

Bad day for me, good day for Steve.

Now for my excuses: Slicks were rubbing spring perches hard, even with 10mm spacers. Heat soaked the IC on burnout, IAT was 124* at IDLE before I even hit the waterbox. No WOTBOX, Steve has one. Steve's on a full tune, I am on a base tune.

^^ so much for 450 whp!!! Lol

450 =/= 113mph.

My slicks use to rub to and I have the marks on them to prove it. But neVer use that as a valid excuse.

Truth! You can see the slicks wobbling, gyrating etc. Nicely captured at a sun-glaring 720p. What front end suspension upgrades do you have (photos would be welcome ) to put that corn power and torque to the ground?

Don't tell me your stock!

The last 2 runs on the video (7:25 and 9:00 i think?) I ran 11.7 and 11.5. Rest of the runs we were both missing shifts and having bad launches and so forth, lol. Clutch slipped hard on the 11.5 so i called it a day. Most of those runs you can hear me 2-steppin it :P

Man, if we'd had time, it woulda been cool to swap slicks to see how it went. Now Nick's gonna be so far away he'll never come back
