Comment to me from a Gen 2 Viper owner at an open lapping day, "This Viper is stock and doesn't have that much horsepower, you need to lift on the straights so I can pass." This was me with my 280 hp Elise
, is it opposite day?
This was during a cold day on a 1.1 mile track, 1/2 of which is a high speed oval. It was taking me a few laps to get heat into my R888. The Viper was on slicks and was actually catching me on the tight portion of the track while my tires were cold. But on the high speed straight/oval I would open a gap of 100-200 yards and hit a top speed of 115 mph. I would have been happy to let him pass if he was on my bumper.
