I *think* Hollywood used to own the Viper and sold it to someone locally. I'm sure he has the full scoop.

I was just driving it with the owner (Ricky) that day. I hadn't taken delivery of my current car in time for the airfield event.

Ricky's Viper stole the show. That car was unreal.. nothing came close all day. Kelly, how does your car compare vs Ricky's?

I've put more power down on the dyno, but he has a better ET with his slicks/skinnies. I'm unable to run 15" wheels with slicks/skinnies because my brakes are so massive. An 18" wheel is the smallest I can go without going to a drag brake set-up....No Thanks.

You have to love the sound of the Z06. That's music.
