Incredible Horsepower numbers!


I was at the Dyno shop today, and there was a Viper there that put out 835-horse power to the rear wheels. On the bottle it broke 1000 hp. They couldn’t get an accurate reading because when they shifted to the next gear the car did a burn out on the Dyno!
Unbelievable but true! I talked to the guy who owned the car. He does drive it on the street but not everyday. Mostly at the track.
Later,
Tim

Communication wasn't his strong point. Very stand offish. I tried to talk to the guy but, he didn't really want to talk. Oh well the car was awesome.

That's pretty good

A friend of mine just took his 81 Vette into to see what it dynos at. It ran a mere 445 rwhp...but then the turbos kicked in at 3,700 RPM's and the horse power shot right up to 1,054 rwhp. I thought that was pretty impressive, although the engine is blueprinted and has twin turbos, but still very impressive. Someday, my C-class will have that
[:D] (In my dreams)

1998 C230
It is absolutely pure stock!!!
I wish I had the funds to do something with it.

The viper guy has probably out sourced conversation. You should have asked to have his people talk to your people.
