    2004 stg 2 STi vs. 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10

    Not going to even pretend I had much of a chance at this thing. I was just on my way back to work from another branch when somehow I end up behind what has to be a 2008 or 09 Viper cruising behind a Prius blocking the passing lane. White with blue racing stripes. Very nice. Eventually the Prius moved and the dude in the Viper held for a second and then gunned it. Anticipating this might happen I just downshifted to 5th to see what would happen. He goes and by the time the turbo even spooled he's got 4 cars on me. But after that he wasn't gaining much visible ground until we both shut it down around when fifth gear had reached it's usefulness. Moved into the right lane to catch my exit and an approving wave was had by all. The end.

    At what speed did you downshift?

    We were probably going about 60-65 mph. I'm sure I could have gone to 4th, but I just didn't feel the agression of trying to hang with 600hp.

    Nice.

    I used to go to car meets where everyone would try to badger me into racing a modded blue 2000 Viper. It would have been an interesting race had I ever done it.

    Had a hard time even finding one with that color scheme on the interwebz, but this is it...





    My life would be short if I had the cash for that thing.

    that is my alltime favorite supercar. Nothing fancy. Dodge built that car to be one thing. RAW as ****.

    That helps explain why you got your behind so badly handed to you. 60mph in 5th gear for me is ~3K on the tach.

    I'm not sure where your gears max out at ('04 vs '05), but I'd have a hard time dropping into 3rd (max out @ 70), but I'd have no problem dropping into 4th (max out @ 100)

    Those new vipers are just plain sick looking! Reminds me of back in Italy and seeing all the ferraris on the autostradas. I was going about 90mph in my 520i and got passed by a ferrari f430. Passed me as if i was standing still. Oh to have the $$$$$$ to get one.

    In 5th at 60 or 65mph you'd have absolutely zero chance. I'd have been in 3rd to even attempt to stay up!
