First, I wish the trans had been moved to the rear. Either by using GMs approach of modifying a four wheel drive trans and mounting it in front of the rear axel or the Ford GT approach of using a true trans axel. Either would help the weight distribution and foot well space.
Second, I wish that DI had been included in this efort. Even if all the gains in efficiency went to economy and not power this time around.
Third, The Viper that we see is NOT the finished product. Still a lot of development work going on. Minor tweeks but still tweeks none the less.
Fourth, A lot was accomplished with a small budget. Hats off to one and all.
Fifth, There's a lot to the style that is not immediately obvious at first glance. Staring at the pics over and over again is not a dull exercise. By the way, the car appears very touchable. There's some passion in the design. Bland it is NOT.
