Title: Vendors welcome.
Post by: RTTTTed on November 07, 2010, 02:04:34 PM
At this site we welcome vendors.  Please use this section to post your introduction, specialties and discounts.

We welcome input from you on threads especially any technical inputs that you can provide or suggestions in the forums to help increase our knowledge base. 

Tuners are the Ultimate do it yourselfers and fixing/modifying cars every day is the fastest way to acquire knowledge.  I presume that parts vendors will get orders from the DIYers while the tuners will get work from the people that don't want or don't have the knowledge, time or desire to do the repairs or mods themselves. 

Tim and I have no requirement for financial assistance at this time so everything is free.  Once the website is larger and requires more financial support we will be asking for Vendor input and how they'd like to be presented on this site (vendor specific forum, what kind of advertising, photos, reviews etc.)

Without Viper Vendors we would have to build or have everything custom made for ourselves.  Some of us enjoy tuing our cars, but just the adjustments and smaller stuff we are "comfy" with.  The Tuners are a necessary part of the Viper world as the specialists and they are the leading edge of programming and most Viper oriented repairs, modifications.  Without Tuners there wouldn't be many Vipers over 800rwhp.  That would allows vettes to lead the hp wars instead of Vipers

Well said Ted

I hope we can get some good support from the Viper tuners/vendors.  Like Ted said, we require no sponsorship fees, but would like that the vendors that post their links and info to also engage in the discussions and answer questions when they can.  

We also want as much feedback and advise from the Viper business owners as possible on the rules and regulations for how the vendors interact on the site.  We feel the forums are here for the users, first and foremost, and understand the vendors feel the same way.  Advancing the Viper community is the goal, and benefits us all, vendors included.  Thus, the vendors should be an integral part of the site and a very important link in our community.

Good to see you showing up here, Dan!  :D  I have't given up on tuning my '01 GTS that we talked about last November.  My son and I just did the LC-1 install over the weekend ... gotta work out some wiring problems, get the WB O2 welded in and then I'll be calling you. :2thumbsup:

The GTS just isn't getting the attention it deserves lately ... recovering from back surgery and my surgeon was VERY specific, no driving the Viper until further notice!  He's a fan of the breed and doesn't want me messing up the work he did. :D

Dan, I would love to make you a section and have you around here. 
I'll set it up now and will be ready for you in the morning.
Feel free to post up any sales and specials you have. 
And we encourage you to help others in the tech sections with your knowledge and experience.

Welcome Dan.  I bought my Hella Tire Pressure Monitor system?TPMS  for my GTS fom Dan.  It works awesome.  Not only is it improved over stock by showing each tire, but it shows each tire and it's Temperature and pressure.    TMPS is a must for a Viper.  Drive a flat very far (You can't fell any of the low profile tires when they're low.  Leslie had a low tire and starting scraping on all bumps.  We were thinking the bouncy bouncy was gonna be a shock - No.

You still weld past midnight in your shop instead of sleeping?    :D

Hi guys.  Just found out about this from Dan.  Great to see some familiar names on here.  I am really glad of the Vendor policy.  Without them how could I spend money on my Viper for mods and get those looks from my wife?  :lol:

You're right.  These guys not only allow us to buy stuff for our Vipers to make them unique and closer to each of our ideas of "perfection" but are also the guys that can help when we get into tuning or something that we need help with. 

Having Tuners that offer advice on tuning that save some of us "self-tuners" blowing up our engines is fanatastic.  Remote tuning is fantastic and an option that I never heard of until speaking to Dan, Dan/Chris and Larry.  BAZ has a story about how his car was tuned from DC Performance in the UK.  Without Sean Roe I wouldn't have been bringing home as many trophies as I have.  JonB was my HPDE instructor and taught me much about driving.

Although I did enjoy my sojurn in the Gen 4 Vipers at VOI 11, expecially the Nurburgring ACR, I equalled the times of the Gen 4 with a stock 2001 ACR!  Both my Vipers I prefer to stock and feel that my 'old' modified Vipers are twice the performance of a new Viper.  Both of my Vipers became modified Hotrods with well over 700rwhp at Larry Macedo's shop and I've been "keeping up the good work" ever since.

The stock Viper is built to conform to Gov regulations and not SRT design wishes.  The ACRX has cable controlled TBs and no Cats.  The ACRX has not Cam-in-cam in those engines and Dick Winkles built the 800hp engine in the (Tunercar) Drag Pak Challenger.  If even the SRT engineers run Bellanger Headers on their personal Vipers ...
