Thanks Jason. Yeah I know. Probably a boring procession, right?

I like all motor sports, but I love the NHRA Pro Meets. I've been to many of the road course circuits in England to watch Motocycle Racing before I came to America when I was 19 (too long ago). That includes Brands Hatch, Silverstone, Snetterton, and yes, the local track at Darley Moore in Derbyshire where many of my fellow Rolls-Royce Apprentices would race. We also used to go to a Speedway Cinder Track course (I think we call is Flat Track here) in nearby Nottingham. Quite a trip on my old 1956 AJS 350 single with no lights!

Point is, nowhere in Europe do they have 8,000 HP Funny Cars like we have here. It really is quite astonishing to be standing near those guys and feel the pressure wave going through you when they do a burnout. All for a mere $60 too. Plus about $20 for Thunder Alley access which is always fun.

Gee Manny, you should raise your sights a wee bit and try a Z06. Yeah I know, it's "Chevy". But it's got all the right bits and pieces for you and all the road course peeps. Just needs a little attention to the back-end. You know, the diffuser. Just install a real one, not a "parachute, but one like those you were talking about for the NSRT a few years back. Voila - a Z06 that handles and waaaaaay more power than any NSRT could manage reliably Yeah I know, it's a "Chevy"...but still ...

Thanks for the sudj Stark but, if I had that kind of money again, I would def get a 2008 viper ACR. I did have the privlidge to work on, and mod a 2006 black z06 that a good freind owned. Did a test day at t hill. ran strong but, would rather have the viper..

I am doing this to my srt-4 cause, that is what I could afford right now. Once I get out of school, and start making money again, I will finish my 750 hp charger, and who knows what..

Cool. I'm in the poor house too. Looking for an English Bully actually. But I do like these obscure little subcompacts, especially when they kick the respective asses of those long snout exotics from Europe...or even the good old USA. The Z06 is still the greatest bang for the buck weekend warrior "drivers" car. And with so many "rich old toupee floppers" driving them, you could really clean up if you offered them a real diffuser. What's wrong with that? Nobody else is.

Just curious, why do you prefer a 2008 Viper ACR over a later model?
Pardon me for seeming to be nosy
Just curious
