You can have this one.

It looked a little wide though and I mentioned that, but I edited cause I just can't tell. Honestly. Seriously well done RC car. From the wipers to the windshield banner to the roll cage (which looks a little big), everything was done very well.

I'm more put off from that Viper than this one. I truly can't find a dang thang about it and it's kind of bugged me a little.

I'll forget tomorrow. Remind me.

And I knew (and said) no way is there a V10 under the hood. Other than pretty cool, the car seems pointless?

"Drag was better understood and incrementally reduced, meaning that by the end of the decade top speeds for the prototypes were up to the 240mph mark, with the WM-Peugeot of 1988 even reaching 252mph on the HunaudiŤres straight leading to Mulsanne, making it the fastest racing car ever. "

3 liter V6. 900bhp. In 1988. Imagine seeing 400km/hr on a speedo, let alone 250 mph.

is that right side mirror retractable for less drag? appears to be a slot in the plexi it could slide threw.

also noticed the zero angle on the wing, and that its actually airfoiled like an airplane wing.

Totally cool. Wonder if 4th gear was direct drive.

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think it was retractable or movable. (not allowed)
There are pics with and without an aerodynamic cover. Just like the one on the left side.
The WM P87 had covers on both sides...

And pictures of an aero cover on the other side too. Just depends when it flew off, from doing 252 mph!

I see no slot. I see reflections.

Now for something completely different...

The ''Viper'' reminded me of the Supersaloons.

Vid with pics. Worth a watch, though.

An hour of that!? Right of the bat I'm reminded of these guys that ran the old OG Coopers but pretty much sat in the back seat. They were super fast.

And it says Gran Turismo up there on the windshield.

Torque and drifties make more sense than flipping through a dozen gears for power.

Yah, the GT banner threw me, but I guess a lot of the D1GP cars have it.
