Here is the video of the viper running in reverse.. I'm pretty sure halfway through the spin, the engine bump starts into reverse. Any time you see the car backing up a little, it is because i am letting the clutch out on what is 1st gear (should be going forward).

All I can say is WOW! I always wondered if that would work. I would try to see how fast I could go while backing up. Imagine going through a couple gears. Just kidding! That would be something for America's Stupidest Videos.

Thats definitely something that you don't see every day. When it was running backwards you could definitely tell something sounded funny.

Hopefully there is no long term damage.

net was running stuip slow today. I watched the vid.

I don't know if anyone else notice. But it seemed the rear steped out way too easy. Normaly (at least with my car) I'll get a little warning before it happens. With what happen to you it seems the tires started to break loose and that was it. I wonder if the drivetrain had something to do with the engine running in reverse????

Tanked, I just went into the corner too hot is all. I run kumhos out there and once they give, it's hell to bring em back in line. The course itself is not a nice piece of asphalt and probably contributed as well. /images/graemlins/dunno

Gen 1 cars are very unforgiving
