Well I was gonna post this earlier, but I figured you'd get an answer by now, but I see only smartass answers are coming forward , but a friend of mine has a 96 gts and he's a maniac with it, I'll ask him tonight whar the best launch rpm's are. From what I remember they are pretty low, otherwise it's up in smoke if too high. I'll get back with his answer tomorrow, He hasn't answered his phone yet today. He probably thinks I'll be bugging him to drive it like usual...

Car and Driver magazine tested one a while back. If I remember correctly, they said launch at 1500 RPM's. Any higher, and they just sit there and spin. Lower and it bogs. Then, they said you have to "backpeddle", as if you give it full gas, the tires will break loose again.

I drove one once. Didn't really worry about the tires, as it wasn't my car. WOW. Total blast to drive. I think it did 110 MPH or so in third gear.

Have you guys seen the new V-3? I think they call it a 2003 model. Give me V-1 and V-2 all day long, The new one looks like a Camaro in pictures.

I don't have the advise for you but do have a screwed up story.

A good friend of mine has a henessy(spelling?) viper and took it to the local dealer for service. The frickin mechanic took it out and looped it in a turn!!! hit the curb sideways and took off the rear wheel!! Also bent the frame. They told my friend they would fix it. When he went to pick it up when it was done being fixed the door wouldnt close properly. He drove it a little bit and the roof had a crack in it near the passenger A pillar!! Now the insurance is going to pay it off and total it. So he's out thrashing on it, doing donuts and **** in it! Frickin Dodge dealers working on a suposed top of the line sports car!? I never understood that.
