Hard to find real curb weights for any of them. It seems that the Italians always claim something about 200 less than reality (and I'm not talking about dry vs. wet weight either). Claimed curb weight for the LP570 is 3150ish, but I'm skeptical. Has anyone put one on a scale yet? All of the rest of them are 3300-3500.

That said, if we're talking about modifying them (which we are), there is a lot more weight which can be removed from a Viper than a Lambo. Final, race weights, shouldn't be any different.

I think a Viper with proper tires, chassis setup, sequential box, and good tuning will run very well with anything. I think Aaron is trying to show us that now.
