Dodge Viper on the Tail of the Dragon US129 Deals Gap.flv
This was our first pass thought the "Tail of the Dragon", US129, Deal's Gap, My wife was trying to hand hold the camera and it did work very well and made her sick, so that is the only video we shot. It may make you sick watching it. We were driving a 2000 Dodge Viper. I thought it would be best to drive it in first gear but it was hard to keep the rear tires from breaking loose exiting the turns so I ended up driving it in second and it was much easier to control the loose on exit problem. The Viper is stock and quiet about the only time you hear it is when the rear tire breaks loose. It has a brand new set of BF Goodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2. 13.5 inches wide in the rear 10.5 inches wide in front. It had rain earlier in the day but was dry when we drove it. We weren't trying to set any records, just having a good time. I had a blast.

Here's a few clips from the SCCA Chasing The Dragon (ie Tail of The Dragon)
Hill Climb. For this particular course, spectators were not allowed
on-course so we just hung out around the start gate.

300zx TT Dragon run 05.20.2011
This was my first time on the Tail of the Dragon. I didn't really feel
comfortable running the car too fast as this was a virgin run, and my car
sits a bit too low / scrapes in the hard turns. Zdayz 2011.
The tail of the dragon
one of my favourite songs...It's my own mix...we all now it's not a big
deal....but it's sounds pretty good..... I think ;)
-if you don't like slide shows, please still give it a go as the song is
the priority in this video.
-IT IS NOT THE GRANTURISMO 2 soundtrack, as that one has car sounds, while
this has bike sounds....the son is the same though.
If you don't like it, foxtrot, oscar.

U.S. 129 a.k.a. "The Dragon" is a road connecting Tennessee and North

Thousands of motorcyclists & sports car owners flock here each summer to
conquer the dragon, and pump millions of dollars into to local economies of
Sometimes, tractor trailers mistakingly get on this road, not realizing
they cannot stay in their lanes, and all hell can break loose during
This video is footage I shot in 2006 at The Dragon, many of you have seen
my first video from this footage called "TRUCKS ON THE DRAGON" on YouTube.
I have re-edited this footage into a 60 second argument against allowing
18-wheelers on this road.
Enjoy, and let me know what you thought!
