    OK, just watched it, and at the risk of getting slammed again... ...again...

    The Vette isn't in the same class without the Aero that's on the Viper, and it's even the upgraded Aero...

    I'd take either one...

    Agree, both are great cars. Good video, thanks for posting. I would take either one also, I would pick the Dodge for its looks, and Mopar roots. Got to ride a few laps with an experienced driver, man can they brake and handle in a different dimension than I was doing in the Challenger. Had two ACR owners tell me they are great track cars and good for quick spins in town. But they quickly added that if I wanted to drive more on the street than track to keep my Hellcat.

    Vette is still faster in quarter mile runs and 0 to 60.

    Viper is just cooler so it wins no matter what lol. Actually the rarity of the viper is what intrigues me over the vette

    I like the Viper it is assembled a few miles from my house. The Vette is a icon.

    Wow. The ACR really is some piece of work. Hats off to SRT. The Vette is not an icon it is a small dot in your rear view mirror.
    I've never been a Vette guy. 1960's stuff I really liked. Just to show I am noy=t anti Chevy I've owned a 1973 SS396 Camaro auto and a 70 1/2 Z28 with a 427 motor and the rock crusher gearbox

    Those are some nice pics Lord Hellcat. Will there be a 2017 Viper? The Corvette has been around over 50 years. It is Americas sports car hands down.

    50 years is nice but even the Camaro went away for 8 years. Only hands down I saw was when Randy was tooling in the more stable ACR on the way to a full 3 second victory and another track record. Just saying

    Not bad for a soon to be discontinued car.

    Guess one could say it's good to go out with a bang - slain competitors (Z06, GT3) and lots of track records.

    Yes and the 2016 ACR will probably still whoop up on it. Thread is about a pretty significant track victory - not model longevity or the associated business decisions.

    The viper owner better bring his chiropractor along for the road home.

    Maybe the driver could ask the chiropractor to hold the first place trophy on the way home. First longevity ... now my back hurts - really.
