Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to come across at a D-bag. I love checking out other cars too, I just like the function over form types, so it's tough to strike up a conversation with some at these type of events. I still enjoy them for the most part though. And on the other hand though I met some cool people. 2 of which want a ride when I get to the track, so hopefully I can turn some to the dark side...........of spending more money on their cars.No shame in doing a car show or two. I do the Rocky Mountain Mustang Round-Up up in Steamboat Springs every year on Father's day weekend and because there's an autocross with it as well, I see many track/AutoX cars at the show. I'm not the world's best auto Xer but my KB Boss wins a show award just about every year.
Funny you should mention those. Went ahead and bought a pair of these for the off season. I really want to be able to not ever have to worry about brakes for a fun track day car.Very happy to see the brake caliper upgrade, brake cooling, and clutch replacement as I read through. On a good path!!
I will try the poster board next time....or maybe the beer cases. I wanted to 3D print a bracket, but I only have PLA to print with right now, and I know that wouldn't hold up to the heat. I will probably remake it down the road. I frequent OMAX machine. They make water jets. I might try to talk one of the programmers into having some pieces cut for me, and TIG them up. Although my TIG skills need(alot)of work.Nice. Looks on-par with my fabricobbling methods...
Switch to poster board for easier templating...or empty beer cases
Super impressive build and can't wait to hear what she is like on track, as I am sure this delayed house arrest we all are enduring with the Corona Virus is causing severe track fever with most of us. I have virtually no pictures of my build on my car since I have had Dean Palmer Racing Development do the majority of the work, but even with a Boss S race car , I have not touched the wealth of mods/parts you have garnished your Stand with. Great read, super quality parts ( often from TMO Sponsors ) and I am sure you will shower us with more quality pics of your baby on the track -- looking forward to that.
PS - I love blue too, and I have a Launch Edition Snake sitting next to my TrackStang also. What rims are on your Gen II Viper, as even though it is a small picture, those are not what came on it stock!
It is a 97. And thanks for the compliments, but I honestly feel like mine would not even be in the top 25 on this site(not that I am looking to have a better build than anyone). There are justThose rims look great on your B/W GTS !! Is it a 96 or 97? I have had a few over the years ( comes with the territory when you sell a bunch of Vipers ) and it is tough on those of us that love Blue not to have the classic color combination Viper. I have a second set of black TA style rims that I plan on having stripped and polished as I personally think the B/W Snakes need polished rims. Hoping to get my Boss back next week as just had an MCS 2 way remote shock/suspension installed. We were their biggest distributor for Vipers while they were still being made and it is a great system. Vorshlag ( site sponsor ) swears by them also, and I did contact them and decided to go with their camber adjustment plates with the new shocks.
By the by, no joke, you definitely have one of the best build threads done on the TMO Forum --- congrats!!
