I got spanked yesterday on the freeway

I got my *** handed to me by a 1100 HP supercharged Viper....it was not as bad as I thought it would be, but nonetheless, the Viper just went flying away. The run was from about 60-100mph. The sound from the Viper was also insane, Full straight pipes, no cats just amazing.

Nope. This one said supercharged. He was on his way to a car meet and I went along. The guy next to him had a Dyno graph and it showed 980 HP to rear wheels. They had the same mods.

But the guy that took me on the freeway had a huge Carbon Fiber wing, front Lip, wicked looking rear diffuser was running HUGE Hoosiers on the street.
