Ford GT vs Dodge Viper Drag Racing 1/4 Mile

May 8th, 2012

We attended the StreetCarDrags private rental on May 6th 2012 where we this 2005 Ford GT with a Heffner Pulley and Tune upgrade was racing heads up vs a 2008 Dodge Viper with Belanger headers, exhaust and a Mopar tune.  The Ford GT was making 630 horsepower while the Dodge Viper was running 600 horsepower at the wheels.  Reaction times and launches were pretty close with the Ford GT edging out the Viper with an 11.4 vs 11.6.  Weather was pretty bad with a DA of over 2,000 so we expect both cars to perform much better with decent weather conditions.
