  1. Maybe a OEM catch can would add the needed hp?
  2. Glad you were able to get rid of the Hemorrhoids, CruzKing...
  3. My space will be about 16' x 20'. I was looking at some Jolida tube amps which are really good but not too pricey. I was going to go with the OPPO like you had mentioned. I may be interested in one or both of your pieces. I will do a little research on them and see if they will fit with what I am doing! I have to plan reasonable well on the room as a bad set up can make a great system sound average while a good set up can make a good system sound great from what I have been learning. Sorry to the OP for the distraction. Thanks!
  4. Great information. I second the selection of the OPPO. I've always had my feet about half in the water so to speak as an audiophile for the past 25 years (I'm ADHD so my attention on one thing is short lived). I know enough, but depend a lot of my locally owned high-end audio shop. I appreciate this information as I am starting to make plans to build a basement listening room. I'm basically starting from scratch. My first purchase has been a pair of Dahlquist DQ-10 speakers. I love vintage stuff. I don't want to steer this discussion towards me, but did want to thank the guys on hear lending their knowledge. This is an awesome forum with people lending their help! Maybe I should start a thread about building a listening room???
  5. Very nice work. I will stay tuned.
  6. Well, maybe. My brother would like to buy it. If he buys it I would still have access for some shows and to drive it every once in a while. My problem is I love cars when I am working on them and fixing them up the way I like it, but then I get sick of them when I am done... It's a sickness that needs professional help I assure you... I have thought about selling it and using the money to front fund my two kid's college funds. However, my wife says we are ok without the money from it so now I may keep it a while. I would really like to get a Gen 4 Viper, but they are still quite expensive. I really like the "Street Serpent" Viper. The convertibles are unbelievable looking! They basically designed a rear end that looks like the Viper coupe and put it on the convertible. It is also wider by (I think) 4 inches, and shorter by a couple. So, for now I am storing it for the winter because the weather is already getting crappy in Central Illinois. I would love to take whatever I have to the show in Kentucky and meet some of you guys.
  7. Yes, next spring I am going to get rid of the mud flaps and go with some clear bra material. I do like the spoiler. It looks really good in person. The 2-D pictures don't do it justice.
  8. Looks great! I hope to make it. Thanks for putting this on!!!
  9. Agreed, but the purists have their place because many of them have the money to buy. The problem is the business model... The newest iteration of the Viper is trying to be too many different cars and it ended up not really having an identity.
  10. Well stated.
  11. Right or wrong, most Viper owners were very disappointed at the hp numbers. The Viper over its history has been a leader in hp, and when they did not blow away the Vette ZR-1 many people were upset. Maybe that has hurt sales... I don't know. I spent many years on the VCA forum when I owned Vipers and there were quite a few who are just keeping their Gen 3 & 4 instead of buying the new one--especially those with an ACR. IMO, for that kind of money the new Viper lacks in exoctic looks (except from the side), and while it has done well in some of the track tests, it is not blowing other cars away. I like it, but it does not do much for me for the price. One other thing, many Viper owners like a convertible and/or the roadster look, and since all the new ones are currently a coupe those people are sitting on the sidelines... There are a couple trim levels, but the price goes way up on (for instance) the GTS trim. You are right about only competing against the ZR1, and I would say Z06, and that may be a mistake. Viper purists cringe at the thought of a V8... I would not care as long as the V10 was still offered.
  12. What would be nice would be a picture of the finished product not in a cramped garage and not using a wide angle lens that distorts the picture.
  13. I see. Well, I looked again. Lowering would help, but maybe wider tires on the rear. They just looked recessed in the quarter panel--maybe it is an illusion because of the billboard?
  14. Thanks for the info!
  15. Nice car. It does look good topless... Thanks for digging up the pictures! (Just looked again... Man, those wheels look small on the back)
