|The first Hooked on Driving event of the year
and my first ever was super awesome. Two
days at Watkins Glen. I got so much more
comfortable with my car and its limits (which I
don't think I got anywhere close to) and I can't
wait to go back.
I took a ton of video, but am not finished
editing it yet, so hang on for that.
I also have since picked up Harry's Lap Timer
in the Google Play store, and an OBD Link MX
scan tool from Amazon. Harry's will link with
the scan tool and grab all the information from
my car's ECU for true datalogging. I definitely
plan to put this to good use.
I'm heading to Pocono Raceway on the 21st of
May and plan to take tons more data.
I've also scored a set of Hoosier R7 racing
slicks and will be taking delivery of a full
exhaust system from Belanger. I plan a full
performance test of that exhaust with a video
review published later this year, so stay tuned
Some other events I have still to plan:
West Virginia Cruise (TBD. Maybe June or
Williamsport Cruise (September),
Factory Tour (if FCA is even bothering
A few more things I can't remember right now.

You're welcome to any events on the calendar, but it would be better
if you bought or owned a Viper and then joined the VOA and picked
the PA/WV region as your home base. That way, we get some money
and can use that money to do nice things for the club at these events!

Welcome to the home of the Pennsylvania & West Virginia Viper Club!
Officially a regional branch of the Viper Owner's Association, this club

Everybody is welcome to any event, regardless of what you drive, but
