    Default Ralph Gilles drives the COTA track

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotat...&v=EantmmF2Mao

    Ralph talks about the future of manual transmissions, the direction of SRT, new Positive Displacement plans, and potential to use Hybrid technology to enhance SRT performance.

    Interesting that while Viper owners are saying that they want a automatic in VIpers, the Chargers are wanting a 6 speed in their cars.

    That guy sure looks at ease flogging a SRT Jeep around COTA.

    Exactly who wants an automatic in a VIper?!

    I'm not sure it's the Viper faithfull so much as Dodge trying to lure new customers and this is their best guess as to how to do that.

    Now if we're talking full dual clutch, flappy paddle gearbox like other exotics, that's another story (and ($10K).
