    Default Returning member, now with Gen5 !

    Hey all!

    I was very briefly a member of this community back in 2013 when I had my steel grey 2000 GTS. I sold my old viper to get another Supra, modded it like crazy but I was missing the Viper very much, so I sold the Supra and bit the bullet on a white 2014 GTS!

    Funny thing, here's my last message on this board:

    I sold the car not very long ago, I'm changing project, going with something less expensive to mod up to high HP numbers. I truly think the Viper GTS is the most intense / fun to drive car I've ever own and I'm very proud I owned one of these beast during some time Pretty sure I'll miss the torque, the sound and the driving feeling all together wrapped with that exotic sexy badass look

    Farewell Viper fans! it was short but so worth it
    Well, now I can say I was dead right HAHAHA

    I am very happy to own a Gen 5 now, it's like a dream come true! I love the car!
    I picked it up saturday and been driving it a lot since

    Specs:
    White GTS
    SRT hood
    Black stripes
    Black wheels
    Carbon front lip
    Carbon rear trunk lip
    Carbon rear panel
    Aluminum Viper door sill
    Interior carbon trims




    Looking at maybe a set of lowered spring caps, this wheel gap is killing me!
    I was thinking maybe a set of BC coilovers, but the GTS suspension is amazing, not sure how it'd feel about removing this incredible piece of technology.

    Any feedbacks about the lowering caps vs coilovers ?
    Thanks

    Every aspects I loved about my gen 2 I found them back in my gen 5. I was afraid the new gens would not be as bestial as the old one, but they definitely are! The torque, the sound, the driving feeling everything is there!

    One big difference I can see is the car feel much more stable, more forgiving to drive. I am more in confidence with it and therefore enjoying it even more!








    I just received my spring caps, this wheel gap is killing me! Next pics are gonna be lowered a bit

    Stability is one thing I've heard echoed over and over from early Gen owners. I agree it's still one hell of a Beast!

    This is actually kind of a funny story; I went to my local Dodge dealer earlier this year and sat down to do the complete order process, here's what I chose for options:

    - White
    - Black Stripes
    - Black Sidewinder Wheels
    - Carbon front lip
    - SRT hood (but wasn't possible)
    - Carbon trunk lip
    - Carbon tail light panel

    The dealer called me back a couple days after telling me that ordering a Dodge Viper at this time was not possible, I was too late, SRT Dodge had already stopped production of the Viper.

    Well ****
    So I started lurking on used car sites and I found the one I own right now in Canada - Whinnipeg on Auto Trader, I couldn't be more lucky: Price was fair, low miles (1700 miles) and ALL the options I wanted!

    - White
    - Black Stripes
    - Black Sidewinder Wheels
    - Carbon front lip
    - SRT hood
    - Carbon trunk lip
    - Carbon tail light panel

    Funny thing that someone ordered in 2014 the exact same Viper I wanted today and barely used it, and more importantly was willing to sell it to me hahaha
