SoCal Viper Club Car Control Clinic ~ Saturday October 24, 2015
The So Cal Viper Club will be returning back to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana California to utilize their huge parking lot to stage our Member’s only Car Control Clinic sponsored by Southern California Viper Club and Specialty Performance Team This has always been a very popular event for new members as well as long time members. It is the ideal place to take your Viper out and push it to the limit to get a full understanding of what happens when you cross the threshold of tire traction and become a passenger trying to gain control of the Viper.

Once again a huge Thanks to Randy Tribolet for getting us set up again with the Team manager of Megan Racing. Naoki Kobayashi. They will be bringing out 3 of their instructors to help us learn the basics of Car Control through the lessons of Drifting.
” I know some folks are a little reluctant to burn up their street tires and for $50 they will let you take out their drift car and smoke em all you want. I spoke to Naoki today and he said that they would try to bring two rental cars this time. Also, their cars are set up for the drifting and a bit easier to control in a drift. It’s a great way to get a feel for it. Last year, many of us rented the car first to get the feel and then took our vipers out afterward. I think that the best way to do it. They bring a truck load of tires and expect to go through some”
Whether your goal is to learn how to full on drift your Viper or simply get the “feel” of having the back end start to slide out and what to do to catch it, this is the ideal opportunity to come out and learn.
This year we will be focusing on Auto-x and this year it will likely have a few surprises in the course setup.

Need New Tires?
Need new tires for your Gen III/IV (or V) Viper? Have we got a deal for you! Pirelli is offering VOA members
factory-direct pricing on their P ZERO and P ZERO Corsa (R-compound, street legal) Viper tires. These are the same tires that come as Original Equipment (OE) on the Gen V Viper. They also fit stock Gen III/IV wheels as well! We recently compared the Pirelli tires to the Michelin Pilot Sport 2’s on a Gen IV Viper, and the Pirellis turned in faster lap times and provided more controllable handling at the limit, both wet and dry. (See next issue of Viper Quarterly for a full report.)
VOA can save you a substantial amount on a set of tires. Not $40. Not $100, but $800! Yes, that’s right, save EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS on a set of P ZERO tires and a whopping $1350 on a set of Corsas over current tire warehouse prices! The amount you save on a set of P ZERO tires will pay for five years of MAMBA membership in VOA! Aren’t you glad you joined VOA?

P ZERO Front P295/30ZR18 (94Y): $346/$250
PZERO Rear P355/30ZR19 (99Y)LL: $677/$375
