    I know this might be a little out of place on the HTF, but I have about 10 gigs of bandwidth left for the month on my server, and figured you would all have no trouble killing it by downloading a video of an ACR Viper and a Porsche 996TT having a little go on the highway.

    If this video is in any way considered unsuitable, feel free to delete it. It was the only 10 meg range file I had available on the server currently.

    Working on getting it to play now it's taking a while. I think it will be worth it.

    Seems more like it depends on the driver and key gear shifting rather than brute strength in this race.

    brent- shouldn't you be saying I'd like to seem them go with a TT on the VIPER! [​IMG]

    That's outstanding!!! Well worth the download. Reminds me of a high speed shootout I got into with my old man. I was driving my '99 Honda Prelude (all stock, no fartboxes), and he was in his Jag XK-R. Yeah, guess who won that one. I think he was a little surpised, though, that I stayed closer than he thought.

    Even though Vipers are one of my favorite cars I think they sound awful. At least every one I have heard. Man that is one awesome video. I love stuff like that. When I get DSL I will be able to put some videos like that up.

    I agree with Jeff.

    Technically speaking the Porsche is the better car, but the Viper was definitely giving him a challenge.

    Just as a note to everybody, PLEASE do not post links to my server on other forums or webpages. SInce I posted this here, it has turned up on 3 OTHER forums, and 2 other web sites. I rationed off the last of my bandwidth for this forum ALONE, and having it posted god knows where just ends up costing me money in "above and beyond" bandwidth fee's, as well as being very inconsiderate and rude.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the mirror! I have more then enough for the HTF, it's the distributing of my links to other forums that kills me.

    Damn that video is crazy!!! Where in the heck are they able to go that fast in the U.S.? People beeping the horn, that was hilarious! Can anyone give me an estimate as to how much those cars cost? Might plan on getting one [​IMG].
