Quote from: niky on August 31, 2008, 12:16:24 PMNot to mention the fact that the ACR package has the "track-use only" front splitter and a really tall rear wing that provide nearly ten times the downforce a ZR-1 or GT-R has... but still, that was an awesome lap... the driver was on the edge the whole time... I can forgive the missed shifts... between wrestling with the steering, the balky gear box and the surfeit of torque, the guy had his hands full.. in many cases, he was banging off the limiter in order not to lose speed and not upshifting in order not to lose his grip on the steering wheel.There's also mention somewhere on the net that the ACR package makes the Viper really slow to accelerate over 165 mph, making 5th and 6th gear mostly useless on the racetrack (too tall to make the car accelerate any further)... the fact that he was banging the limiter in 4th gear down the back straight means that he could maybe have shaved another second or two off that time with a shorter 5th gear or at least a shorter final gear (which is the most common... and cheapest... method of modifying gearboxes for track use).

Quote from: pinoyamg on September 03, 2008, 04:36:02 AM I did think about an ACR for a while until my friend got his in and I got a chance to drive it around.
