      As soon as my catch can and heat shielding come in I'm done with the motor stuff and off to the dyno she goes. Hope it makes what the old car made, (should be the same).

      Damn, between the color and the acceleration, there's enough neck-snapping to bowl Vicelord over and leave him needing a cigarette afterwards.

      We may hate him, but we're still talking about him.

      Seriously, that sounds great inside the car.

      Laughing at him isn't really talking.

      Not going to lie - im jealous. Thats probably how i would spec out a Viper if im buying new. Red would be a close 2nd and thats because i think Vipers should be red

      The blue sneaky got her first bath this weekend, and what a pain it was. I can't stand having to hand dry vehicles as it is a recipe for scratches and swirl marks. It desperately needs a sealant so that I can air-dry the car the way I'm used to. That will be tackled along with a correction on the panels that have not been wrapped with a clear-bra asap. She still cleans up good though



      Headed off to meet up with a few peeps from the Houston VOA for a mini road rally;






      Didn't make it too far before the colored lights came on. Never saw the guy, and I'm trained to be very attentive, I was surprised. Alas, I pulled over and expected a speeding ticket (we were in BFE on an open road without a speed limit sign in sight, had no idea what the limit was). The guy comes up and verbatim; "Sir I pulled you over for 2 reasons, number one, this is my favorite car, and number two, lucky for me, you were speeding." Was a super nice guy, just gave us a warning and sent us on our way. He also literally thanked me for speeding so he had the opportunity to pull me over and take a pic of the car

      Your luck is better than mine. Got a 15 over ticket this weekend for going 75mph on 610...was dumbfounded. Was cruising at the speed of traffic.

      Car is beautiful, love the blue.

      You're in luck, red is the most built color

      5 seconds in and I count at least 8 people standing there when that car starts to get out of shape. Can't fault people for standing on a sidewalk but that driver is damn lucky he only hit some bushes and a curb. No fents

      Sounds amazing. I had to laugh when the terrible in-car video camera work makes it look like you're hitting LudicrousTM speed. I know you're moving quickly, but you're not going that fast. Luck was on your side with that LEO. Pay it forward.

      My buddy has a black C7 Corvette and he's been pulled over 4 times doing 40mph over the speed limit (here in VA!) and the cops have let him off every time because they love his car.
