Seems pretty difficult.




horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you

I've said it before.

When not even the computer in Forza 2 can drive a car, it probably sucks.

I've read countless reviews that said although the ZR-1 and ZO6 are a lot of car for the money, they demand a lot of skill from the driver because they are a bit wild and unforgiving - skill that isn't necessarily needed with the last generation of supercars.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

Yeah for certain people don't get how unfriendly to drive these beast are. Vipers are the same way shit give it a tiny but of gas and she will swap ends.

Naw dog. You need to get a Hyabusa! Don't waste you money on gear either. Save it for upgrades like Nitrous and maybe a turbo kit.

Vipers were notorious for this just like the old air cooled Porsches when you let off the gas mid-corner.
It's actually something I got to see first on Long Island back in the 90's. GT/S I think. Beautiful blue with white pinstripes.

I was at the Dodge dealer looking at a Shadow (don't laugh) and a greaser guido takes it out for test drive. He geeses the gas out of the parking lot and kicks the tail out - it snaps back and he goes ripping down Sunrise Highway. About 4 seconds later you hear this CRUNCH_SKREEE sound, then came the metallic TWANGGGGGGG you hear when someone hits a high tension wire, and the revs PINNED to redline.

Everyone runs out and about 800ft down the road you see a Viper parked halfway up a telephone pole support/guide wire, the sales guy still in car and the guido climbing out with a face full of that residue you get when the airbags blow looking like he just did a mountain of coke.

Yeah there is a great write I can't find right now about how easy it is to swap ends on the Viper.
