Vengeance Racing Twin-Turbo Viper resets World Record

Thanks to some forced induction and a whole lot of tuning, Ned Dunphy was able to reset the world record for the quickest manual fifth-gen Viper in the quarter-mile overall with a 8.6 second pass at a speed of 174 mph.

This orange fifth-generation Viper was built by Vengeance Racing, the Georgia shop responsible for a number of high-profile high-horsepower cars. It has a fully upgraded engine, ProEFI’s advanced engine control system, and was tuned by Jey Clegg of Vengeance Racing. The car still makes use of its stock TR6060 six-speed manual transmission and weighs 3,775 pounds with driver. 

According to Vengeance Racing, the driver, Ned Dunphy, had managed 9.19-seconds at 163 mph, out the gate which was followed by 8.72-, 8.73-, 8.93-second runs before finally running the record setting pass of 8.66-seconds. 

The best part? The car is totally street-legal, and he drove it to and from the event.

Vengeance Racing says a huge thanks goes to Late Model Engines, ProEFI, Calvo Motorsports, Honeywell Garrett Turbochargers, Race Parts Solutions, Nth Moto, Driveshaft Shop, ProSpeed, and Dailey Dry Sump.
