Default My new DD

Now that I have my Racecraft 420s, my daily driver is now my SRT10 Viper truck. Yes I have over 930 hp in my garage not including the motorcycles. You guys are great. Now that I have read up on the history of the last few years, I'm still very happy with my purchase.

Terrific! I've discovered while attending events that the 2008-09 Racecraft 420S did capture a dedicated audience. There were/are are a select group of folks that did want Saleen performance without the Saleen styling or Saleen price.

Enjoy your additional seat time the SRT Ram! Do you have the 6-speed manual or the automatic in your new DD?

P.S. At one time. Found-A-Deal on eBay had a few 2008-09 Racecraft spares. Wheel center caps, wheels, owners manuals, in case you need a something for future use.

My Truck is an 04 regular cab six speed. In 05 and 06 they offerd a quad cab which are all auto's. All regular cab's have the tremic T56 six speed which is in the viper. I really didn't want a garage queen which is what I was doing with the truck. I think I'll share the driving between the two as they are both a blast to drive.

Thats a great truck. Had a Firend that had an 05 quad cab. He always wanted to race my 04 Viper. That was also a very fun car to drive. Hated having to put the top together. I bought it brand new from the dealership and they never showed me how to put it together so the 1st time i got caught in a surprise thunderstorm while travleing i was stuck under a gas station canopy for 45 minutes making alot of people mad.

The racecraft is a great car. I have always been a fan of saleen performance but have never been a big fan of spoilers kits of any kind. This has been a great car for me and I have already made some mods that have made teh car even more amazing.
Tomorrow its getting new rear sway bar as well as control arms to tighten it up around turns.

Enjoy your car. Hope we see you at mustang week. Mine is a black convertible. We will be there. If you see us stop by and say hello.


Pete
