The torsional reactive forces from the engine should be carried in the subframe which is unique to the venom.

That being said 1200 hp puts alot more stress on everything I am sure.

I dont know how to feel about this car. It is pretty well executed for a completely absurd bastard hotrod. The price is comical. I bet the total development cost was less than the price of one.

It does sound great, but looks terrible.

I tell you what the true test is. If leno doesnt buy one it is a crappy car. If you could draw a map of the target model for the car, he would be at the center.

Seriously, my car is small
