2 8L vipers will be running ALMS races starting with Mid Ohio... Restricted to 455hp by intake... Seems like a silly thing to have an engine made smaller then restricted for the series... Oh wait, that's what they do to Vettes too.

Not sure what's going on here, but they make the LS7 go to 5.5L per the rules (then to add insult to injury, GM calls the car a ZR1!), then make an exception for the Vipers. Why not just restrict the LS7 at 7L too? Seems simpler. But how does this effect torque?

Anyway, I'm glad they are back. I like Vipers. Soon enough they'll be ruled down to the vette level to make sure those euro-cars can keep up. I kind of hope they win at Mid Ohio just to see how they slap wt and more plates on em. :lol:. we will need a report of how they sound from someone who goes to the track.

I'm glad the Viper is back in ALMS. However, I doubt they will sound as good as the Vettes.
