The Dodge Viper ACR’s various aerodynamic elements can be adjusted or removed based on the situation at hand. For example, it’s possible to remove the vents on the hood and wheel wells for additional downforce, and the angle of the rear wing and splitter and can also be fiddled with.
This adjustability came in handy when a Dodge Viper ACR owner showed up to the recent Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Attack event in California. However instead of adjusting his setup for more downforce, he removed the rear wing to rid the ACR of drag and ultimately achieve a higher trap speed in the drag racing event.
The Viper ACR’s rear wing makes over 1,700 lbs of downforce at 177 mph, so you can bet removing the rear wing made a huge difference in regards to pass time and trap speed. Drag racing’s not what the ACR was engineered to do, but as you’ll see in the video above, it gets by just fine with a few modifications.
