that was what sportauto claimed...
the gearing is set in a way that at Hockenheim are only very few moments were you rev the engine at its peak power delivery point and at many points the engine rev were it has much less power, one reason is the long gearing of the transmission for example 1.gear till 96km/h
they praised the Viper overall..
some of their comments..
-easy and spot on steering
-turns in exactly like you want
-superb brakes free of fading
-because of lacking ESP the Viper setup is understeering at the limit
