I just got finished driving...

A 1993 Dodge Viper R/T 10.

It was pretty freakin' awesome too. 17k miles on the car, black, and the dash is signed by Carrol Shelby. A guy from work just bought it this weekend and asked if I wanted to go for a ride. On the way back home, he asked if I've ever driven a manual...

So... I got to drive it back home.

I didn't get in it much (he drives like SpectorV and I didn't want to scare him), but you could tell it had some serious torque. I blipped the throttle in 2nd gear at about 2k rpm, and it started taking off pretty damn quickly.

Now I just gotta convince him to let me run it at the track...

I have rode in a 1995 Viper but never drove one. They are awesome cars.

Re: I just got finished driving...

my uncle has two, a 93 R/T 10 (blue with white stripes) and a 05(or maybe 06) SRT10. i havent been in the newer one, but his older one kicks ***.

next time i go to phoenix i get to drive the SRT10 at Bondurant Racing School, as he is best freinds with Bob Bondurant.

Re: I just got finished driving...

I drove a new ford GT ~25 miles to deliver it.. (since I'm qualified to 'prep' them and the other guy in the shop that was didn't want the task.. they figured I was okay to drive it heh )

My friends drive V6's

But even if they did drive cool cars, they still couldn't drive mine...even if they let me drive theirs. Nope.
