(the motor is mounted longitudinally in their case, I believe, which puts additional torsional stresses on the frame under acceleration. Someone more versed in automotive physics should pipe in.)
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
