    I ran a Ferrari 360 Vert

    It was a Red vert with black wheels. We went from a 40 and a dig. The 40 was close with him jumping out by a car and i caught up by 55 and we shut it down at 60 or so with me a fender out. Then from a dig he just sat there spinning and me pulling by a car and then i hit 3rd and pulled a lil more untill about 90 where i had him by maybe 2 cars or a lil less......and before anyone starts flaming i looked up teh times of a 360 and they run 13.0s @108sh. I was about to pee-pee my pants. He was pretty cool and said b4 we raced he couldnt afford any more tickets and then he took off so it was game on!

    360 Modena's are definitely faster than that...

    They have 400HP and only weight 3197lbs...they run more like low 12's.

    I did see a chick at the track with one though, she couldn't drive stick worth a damn, and ran a 16.XX

    I would have to agree with Wesman

    Modenas should be in the low 110s in the quarter mile.
    To put lengths like that on a roll, you have to be deep in the 12s in the quarter
    Perhaps the person in the ferrari was a terrible driver
    Regardless, f360s are awesome cars, if I was lucky enough to have one; you could beat me by a bus length, but in my mind, I would have still won.

    Agreed. The driver of the Ferrari probably didn't drive the car to its potential, you have to downshift and get the car up into the powerband, which ia round 8K RPM, in order to get the most out of it. He probably just stomped the gas without downshifting and tried to hang, not realizing how quick the SRT-4 can be.

    Like you said though, I doubt the guy felt too bad - He's driving a Ferrari, and you're still driving a Neon

    How do you post pictures? Do you just add a file to your response?
    Nice C5 by the way, I used to have a 99 FRC a couple of years back. Your decision between and C6 vs a GTS should be based on your purpose for the car. If you plan to daily drive, I would NOT recommend a GTS. Some people do, but the interiors are not anywhere near as user friendly as the vette. Gas milage is horrible, and (in my mind) you seem to lose the Wow factor that a viper brings if everyone sees you in it everyday. I have a few friends with C6s and they are certainly more refined than the C5. Those driving daily would benefit from the improvements. Performance: my stock GTS against my friends (exhaust and vararam) C6; I'm 0.3-0.4 quicker in the quarter, both on stock radials consistently.
    If your car is a second, nice weather only, car. Go with the viper, it brings so much attention and picture taking (while parked and also driving). It also gives a nice contrast to your other car because it has character.
    Both cars are great and you can't go wrong with either decision

    Nice kill, I wish I could run one of those. Too bad you couldn't get up to triple digit speeds where the Modena really shines.

    To post pics, you can go to "post reply" and then click on the paper clip that is above the message box. From there, you can upload the picture. The purpose of the car is a "perfect weather weekend cruiser" just like the Vette is (about 2,000 mi. a year). Gas milage isn't an issue. I just want a stock beast.

    I tried to post a pic and an error prompt showed. Given it's going to be a good weather car, I would go with the Viper. There are many choices out there, make sure you choose the one for you. If I didn't get a blue and white, I would have bought an ACR edition. Good hunting
