On Wednesday, I was at the Nurburgring to witness Dominik Farnbacher’s 7:03.45 lap in a factory-stock Dodge Viper ACR. Today, we’ve got the in-car video from that first attempt at a fifth-generation Viper ‘Ring lap record. It’s a wild ride.
Finally got the car out to an event to do a shakedown before I start bringing it to track events. Wanted to make sure overheating was not going to be an issue and it was the perfect day for a torture test. Ambient temps were 110* in the high desert and with not turning the car off between 5-6 runs each time and…
Finally got my wheels back from powdercoating!
Quick video on how to easily repair slightly damaged wheel studs. If your wheel studs are severely stripped or damage do not attempt to repair and you should definitely replace!!!
There are many cases of automotive “who the hell designed this shit” scenarios. From Audi’s that require you to drop the engine to do almost any maintenance, and other modern cars that give no thought or concern to future maintenance.
The Viper is one of these “good luck with that buddy” scenarios when it comes to…
Made a video on my radiator removal & reinstall. Video also shows how bad my OEM rad was clogged/warped and how it looked before and after being “re-cored”.
Strangely a common problem on these cars many owners have where the OEM rad gets clogged from water deposits/buildup.
Maybe the factory filled these cars with horse…
Here is probably the most rediculously cheap mod I have ever done. Purchased LED peanut bulbs for just 10 cents SHIPPED for a pair.
Check out the video to see where I got them and how I modified them to fit my dome lights without having to mess with the factory housings.
Thinking about installing an underdrive pulley? Check out the video!
Check it out!!!
Finally got around to editing the video of the IPSCO solid steering rack
bushings. Another quality part that I would recommend.
Just picked up a set of expensive ass wheels (Forgeline VR1) for my car that someone went through quite a bit of trouble to make ugly as hell!
The wheels were originally polished aluminum
Did some basic maintenance on my Viper ACR. Oil change and lowered the front end a bit more!
Some JEEP content for all you David Tracy fans!
VIDEO IS UP!
Finally got around to changing the fluid in my Dodge RAM with the ZF 8spd transmission.
This is FAR more simple to do than my 09 Hemi with the conventional 5 speed. Less mess, didn’t have to make gaskets and screw around with RTV and was much quicker! Also the exhaust was not in the way of me removing the…
In this video I show how I changed the differential in my Viper to a Mopar Performance 3.73.
Install is pretty straight forward and would be much easier with a lift and power tools but this video shows that it can be done in your own garage.
Check back on YouTube for more videos uploaded every few days! In car review…
Took a bunch of screenshots of the performance pages on the new video. The number 757 is a reoccuring number that has shown up in several of dodge’s videos now.
Let me know if you guys see anything that may lead to more clues other than the obvious here!
One thing still interesting is on the “power” settings they still…
Part 2 of my video series of weekly upgrades to my Viper ACR.
In this video I show how much of a pain in the ass it is to change the control arm bushings for a Viper ACR. I installed brand new Energy Suspension bushings on the control arms.
Part 1 shows the front control arm bushing install.
Also check out my channel…
In his video I show how to install Energy Suspension polyurethane control arm bushings on the front suspension of a Dodge Viper ACR.
Part 2 will be posted soon and will show the install for the rear control arm installation.

What’s everyone’s guess on the name tag on the tool box included with the Dodge Demon? As Dodge has stated they will leave “easter egg” clues throughout their videos, many are guessing at some of the numbers from the last video.
The 0757 number has people guessing if this will perhaps be the updated HP rating for the…
