Tire Shredding Tuesdays: 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 Smolders the Tires from Multiple Angles

2008 viper burnout 600

In the history of Mopar Muscle, there have been no cars that pack as much power as the Dodge Viper SRT10 and few cars that would blow away a set of tires like the mighty Viper.  This week’s Tire Shredding Tuesday feature look at one such Viper from the 2008 model year doing a quick yet awesome burnout and thanks to some crafty camera work – we get a look at this burnout and the ensuing cruise from two different angles.

The subject of this video if a gorgeous GTS Blue 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe that has a compact camera strapped to the driver’s side rear quarter panel so in addition to the videographer catching the action from the side of the road, we also get an up-close-and-personal look at the smoke show from just behind one of the tires being destroyed.  After the burnout, we get some rolling footage of this awesome blue Viper accompanied by some techno music – although I’d rather hear more Viper exhaust notes but to each their own.  Music aside, this is a great quick look at the “old” Viper SRT10 roasting some rubber with the help of its high revving V10 engine.  Crank up your speakers and enjoy!

 

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Rall. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car: a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16. Meanwhile, I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group,” adds Rall. “While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit, I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.”
