No, that is not an "epic failure". What you saw was an incredible run on street tires. Do you have any idea how hard it is to launch a 1900hp car without spinning the tires? That will also tell you how hard that engine pulled after he got the thing rolling from a soft start.

Yell at me all you want, but I will stand by my statement.
The supra is a great cheap car. And has a really great engine. What you say makes you look like a newb... I am a strong muscle car fan, but I will not talk bad about a Supra, it's really a great rice burner car.

No. Drag Slicks. Not that hard to launch them.



That is a fast car.

That's dumb to have a 1900 hp car and only drag with it. Vipers are really light and good around turns and suck on straights

No, look at the nose on a Viper. It sticks out so far, they are terrible at turning. It's a massive 8.xL V10 sitting up there, making 600hp. They are more made to go in a straight line then anything. If you want a cheap car that handle great, and is fast as hell... Z06 or ZR1. GT500 isn't bad, but vettes are better.

If you buy a vet you get more bang for your buck but here are my choices.


1967 GTO


1970 Chevelle SS


Veyron


1969 Camaro



Lamborghini Reventon


and of course you have to have the Shelby GT500 Eleanor 1967 in there from Gone in 60 Seconds.

You, sir, are failing in this thread. I'm not quite sure you are a true car enthusiast if you are saying things like this. Any stock Viper will SUCK on a race track because of how long the front end is, I mean, for God's sake, you sit basically on the rear axle. Any Viper you see going around a track is a heavily modified car that you probably shouldn't even call a Viper anymore 'cuz I can guarantee there won't me much left of the stock vehicle. Plus, I don't understand where you are coming from up there. Are you saying you should put a 1900HP car on the track? You are f-in kidding me right? I'd LOVE to see that happen...LOVE. Bah. I can't argue with ill informed people. It ticks me off too much.

As soon as ford wises up and puts independent suspension in the back I'll own one.

Yea. Its a pull ring. Shuts off the fuel system if you pull it. Dunno why it needs an arrow.
