I'm pretty confident I could take anyone stupid enough to try, unless they were also driving an $80k+ sports car. The viper is all engine. It's like driving a guided missile with a windshield.

    Jim didn't really drive that Viper. He was just high and mistook his racing striped Dodge (Neon) for that Dodge.

    Damn. I didn't even know that, but I believe it.

    The clutch may be stiff in the RT-10, but the SRT-10 wasn't that bad. Considering that it has to hold 600fi-lbs, I'd say it's downright light!

    Nice. I saw these two Vipers the Friday before you picked them up...one Viper in the driveway, one in the street in front of the house, when I was doing my SAT tutoring in Margate. Any time I tutor my Longport students I drive down Amherst (or is it Monmouth?), and see that house w/the sick cars...last May I went by there and saw were two men standing next to a Ferrari, and I rev'd as I went by. Their heads snapped to attention at my WRX as I rolled by, lol...I'm sure they thought I was a tool, but seeing the cars in front of that house is always an experience...
