This Venom 1000 twin turbo viper was racing a Porsche 911 and coming out of the corner hits the boost and losses control and goes sideways at 150mph. He misses hitting a Hennessey Ford GT by less than 30 feet!
1000hp Viper Venom spins out at 150mph.
Thats no excuse. The simple fact of the matter is American cars always have a tendency to oversteer. I have no problem controlling my friend’s 550hp 350Z around corners and I drive AWD cars and occasionally a front wheel drive. Reason, the 350Z has excellent balance. The "79 Supra turbo lapped the Nurburgring in 7.49 or something and it only had 280hp and was a rear wheel drive and yet you people are clammering in excitement just because the 638hp ZR1 did it in 7.40 seconds. That is the same as the rear wheel Porche GT2. Although I don’t consider the GT2 to be much of a car either.
Yup...that’s why you practice, practice, practice…torque is your friend! You also make sure your maintenance is good and hope to God that your stuff don’t break! Kind of wonder if maybe thats what happend.
I think I can happily assume that the pilot wasn’t injured though.
Sorry just didn’t think it was all that entertaining.
oh yea no doubt the GTR would kick its in anything besides 0-60 and 1/4 mile... hands down...and to MadTourist... well yea ever try handling a 500hp rwd car under hard acceleration...well its not an easy feat to keep it in a straight line...
now double the horse... the back end is just asking to swing out with that much hp
Well, I was looking forward to seeing somthing good...they were going really fast! The guy in the Viper somehow cant travel in a straight line. Spun off...wow.
1/4 mile, gonna give it to the Viper. Around a track I’d lay my money on the GT-R even if the Viper was packing 1500hp and had AWD. I just saw a Japanese video with the GT-R taking corners at speeds that will make the Bugatti look bad. Even with a 1000hp this car won’t be that big a threat to the GT-R. Still the 1/4 mile of 11.5 is impressive far a car with the weight and 473hp of the GT-R.
yea the stock viper cant beat it but this is no stock viper... its packing 400 more hp than the stock one
Laughing so hard right now. The Viper can’t beat the 911 Turbo so thinking of beating the GT-R is like a horny 14 year old white boy dreaming about an Asian chick. Not gonna happen.
