    Hey guys, the next installment of Project Viper is up:

    Project VIPER GTS: Part 12 – Replacing The Fluids

    It's Currently on the MotoIQ.com home page but you can find it at: MotoIQ.com > Projects > Dodge > Viper GTS

    (Remember: you have to type the site in yourself and look it up since DriveViper.com does not allow links to outside sites on their forum).

    "It’s always important to routinely replace the fluids in a car, even if it has low mileage. We went through our 1997 Dodge Viper with less than 10K miles on the odometer to keep it in top-shape and see what age does to a car’s fluids..[/COLOR]"




    In the article:

    Replacing the and discussing which fluid should be used for the car:
    -Transmission
    -Differential
    -Coolant
    -Engine Oil
    -Brake Fluid
    -Clutch Fluid


    Enjoy!

    Hey guys, the next installment of Project Viper is up:

    Project VIPER GTS: Part 13 – Lowering the car with KW coilovers


    It's Currently on the MotoIQ.com home page but you can find it at: MotoIQ.com > Projects > Dodge > Viper GTS

    (Remember: you have to type the site in yourself and look it up since DriveViper.com does not allow links to outside sites on their forum).


    "2nd Generation Vipers desperately need to be lowered. We accomplished this with a set of coilovers from KW Suspension.

    The Viper’s stock suspension is actually quite good. The ride quality is comfortable enough to live with every day, there is not much body roll, and the handling is predictable and feels like a big Miata in character."[/COLOR]





    In the article:

    -Video demonstration of the Viper's handling and balance.
    -Removing the factory suspension
    -Installing the KW V2 Coilovers



    Enjoy!

    I really dig this project, great work!! Regarding the coolant, I think that all Gen II Vipers came with the green coolant from the factory, not the orange one as outlined in the article. So, it has been changed previously...

    Thanks for the kind words. Interesting on the coolant, especially given this car's extremely low mileage and extensive service history, which didn't mention it. Can anyone else confirm Gen-2s factory fill was green?
