    Default Sx viper or srx against sidewinder???

    Has any one run a srx or a moded sx viper against the new sidewinder??? Like to know the outcome. Or details. I would have thought this would have been a hot topic.

    Good question! I haven't even seen a sidewinder out on the trail or lake yet to try and race.

    Even a CPR pipped viper would only get ya about 165 hp in perfect conditions. It would have to be one modded srx or viper to come close. a sidewinder is over 200hp out of the box. Not even a discussion who would win as evidence by lack of discussion.

    put a NHRA parachute on the bumper of the sidewinder with a remote deployment button and you might have a chance. My SRX VS a 14 Apex is close on a good day.

    I would love to here from people who have actually run one against the other. I have run against a old Rx1 with a 300hp turbo several years ago. I always beat him out of the hole and up to about 90 mph. He drove past me after that. I have never lost a race up against an apex. Not even a chance!!! I Run against my friend all the time with mock Z 1000. He gets one in a half sled lengths on me in the mid range all the time. But can not pull away beyond that.

    What is the weight of the sidewinder? Power to weight is an important factor here. Viper approximately weighs 530lb I believe.

    Keep in mind my sled is not stock. I guess it to be approximately 160hp. Completely trail friendly. But I have to assume it weighs much less than a sidewinder.

    I have yet to ride another sled that compares. I have road nitro in the past as well as apex and was left wondering, where is the rest. Completely disappointed by comparison. Keep in mind they were in stock trim.

    no one seems to no or wants to tell what the weight of a sidewinder is. I've searched online and asked 2 dealers already, one dealer had no clue, the other one knew what the weight was but wouldn't say.

    Anyone got a pic of the a$$ end of a Sidewinder?

    If so could you post it so he can see what the race will look like from the saddle of his hot rod Viper.

    I reserve the right to change my mind if someone can prove to me it needs replacing.
