I was not impressed. Believe it or not, I was not as impressed as I thought I would be. If I could only have one it would be the Z06. I made the right decision. I hated the clutch, very hard. I am guessing it is a mechanical clutch. It didn't have nearly as much low end torque as the Z (probably the gearing). When going around a corner in third gear it bogged forcing me to shift into second, in my Z I could have been in 4th and got less bog (again the gearing). It sounded terrible. The Z sounds so much better and has alot more room inside. Granted, it was just a short test drive and I couldn't really realize the full potential of the car. I would love to have been able to stomp on it and see what that baby would do but had to respect the future owner of the car. If I didn't know better I would say the Z is faster (I know it isn't) but the Z definetly feels better on the street. Do I still want a Viper, of course, just not as much. If anybody out there wants to let me drive their Viper to its full potential to try to change my feelings bring em on. In conclusion, the Viper is a really neat car that I still would love to own but its a little crude and has nothing on Z06 except maybe the paint (nice paint on them vipers, no orange peel) and a couple of tenths in the 1/4.
