SICK speed. Very awesome. Be careful Nick.

I also believe that Viper could have been driven better.

I had a GTS for a while. The engine "tone" doesn't match where you think the tach should be. Weird V10 sound that only sounds acceptable when you are on the mat (then it could sound like a Briggs and it would be okay).

With that said, it still sounds like Viperguy is shifting a little short and a little slow. The way he runs against a Busa though shows he ain't anybody's Huckleberry...

I only had a passing interest in Vipers till I spent a week in my GTS. They feel like a bigblock '71 Vette on nuclear steriods. Same feel, same chunky bulkiness, same limited outward visibility. But as odd as that is, it feels JUST RIGHT to an old Vette guy like me. MAN that car was fun. Had a low end Hennessy kit with exhaust and some bolt ons (a 550 kit I believe, and it was on it when it passed thru my hands).

Upkeep costs would have killed me, though. 6mpg and a pair of rear meats a week...

The Viper seemed lazy coming up on the RPM's. It seemed like he hammered it too deep in the gear. Also what were the temperatures there?
