This does not look like a 7:22 lap!

He's riding the rev limiter because the gears aren't setup that well for the course. The times where he is hitting the limiter it would be pointless to shift up just to shift back down for the next corner. The time to up shift and downshift would slow him down more then riding the limiter.

I counted two missed shifts and four poor corners. Also the car was hitting the limiter in top gear on the high speed straights as well. Other than that not too bad a lap.


P.S. Keep it on the track! If you try this on the streets you'll be in cuffs in no time!

Yes sir Mr. Wooley!

It's almost impossible to run a flawless lap in the "ring" Let alone in a Viper. He still got the record time.

on a side note

I take it you're hunting for evidence in the video section to burn us with?
We would never street race or drive with our front licence plates removed.

BTW how's CP24? And when can I get your autograph?
