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 Seb is trying to show us that now.
I've seen a few get weighed down here and seem around what their rated at, think some guys haveput their weights up on LP before too. Ferrari though def over rates the weights, some of these cars came in 150-200lbs over ratings lol, rumors their weights are with no fluids or anything...not sure.

Can't wait to see Sebs car make runs
