    You ever drive one? Drove my brother-in-law’s new Viper yesterday. Man, what a rush w/ that mega 500 hp acceleration! A real manly man’s kind of car in my opinion. Everything is so “beefy”. However, I could work w/ it if forced to... What a power trip. What do you like/dislike about the Viper?

    Sounds like a tractor. Poor chassis.

    Drove an ACR today actually. Lots of power..goes like stink..but it's like a big kit car. Not really a Viper guy myself but the power is astounding. I really can't beleive they can sell these cars to the public. I think there rather dangerous

    I had a 700 hp supercharged viper that was a total blast. Enough torque to rip up the pavement and enough grip to pull well over 1g. Great fun on the track, though very squirrely in 1st and second with any throttle on, but once you got to 3rd, watch out. Pure adrenalin rush and always a crowd favorite. In fact, this was car had without a doubt the broadest appeal of any car I have ever owned, including the 550. Old, young, male and female, everyone wanted to know something about this raw beast, sit in it, photo it. I had one attractive woman approach me in a supermarket parking lot to tell me my car
    "makes me really wet"! No lie. My perfect garage would have one in it.

    Driving to the girlfriends house tonight I saw a black with silver stripes GTS driving in a down pour. Had U.S plates on it. I can't remeber the state though.
