Dodge SRT Viper TA 2014
The Dodge SRT Viper is set to attack the track with a new ТА package. There are a number of things those two letters could stand for, including Trams Am, but it is actually initialism for Time Attack, something the Viper has always been good at in the accompaniment of the Nurburgring Nordschleife or the Mazda Laguna Seca. At those two tracks, it has left its competition spinning their wheels in anguish. While the ТА isn’t as track-oriented as the previous initialized assaulter, the ACR, it will undoubtedly hold its spot as the top track Viper until the American Club Racer does return.
The ТА makes its way with all the performance-minded options and a few notable changes. Now standard is the Carbon Fiber Aero Package, which gives the ТА a rear wing and two-piece front splitter. It also comes with the Track Package, which replaces the wheels and brakes with lighter units while adding a set of high-performance Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The options not otherwise available on any stock Viper include two-mode shocks with firmer settings and a carbon-fiber (instead of aluminum) X-brace.
Under the hood is all the same оl’ beast we have come to love but it now includes such advances as a lightweight composite intake and sodium-filled exhaust valves. Keeping all that power in check is the Viper’s first stability-control system. Say it with us: hallelujah! Along with a steering-wheel-activated launch-control system, it will help you attack those times.
