No RHD

Yes Very sideways and I think at some stage, the side ways montion lead me in full reverse even though the thing was planted in 1st... Go figure that one out?:CraZ:

Ah. Splendid! I knew you'd give her the appropriate treatment! ;) Yeah I've been looking at a few places on the Coast that hire exotics, it's mighty tempting.. only problem being a severe lack of play money, and a lot of them now only renting the top stuff to those over 30! :mad:

You lucky bastard, :wink2:

How about some more info, I gather they go like the wind but how did it handle, brake, and most important how did it sound?.

The place is called roadsters
www.roadsters.com.au

Prices are not the ones shown on the web page!

The thing is a beast, what more can i say, huge amount of power and will handle any type of driving style given to it.

With the exhaust hanging out its side it rumbles nicely and at full throttle I recon its close to a F1 car.

I carnt wait to get back up there again.

Well when you decide to come up next time mate, drop us a line :thumbup: I'm only 25mins from the main part of the Coast! Would have liked to meet you when you were here, and indeed met your red "companion" :cool:

Well just about now Laminge is heading for home. He and his little red companion are leaving our fair shore in search of greater happiness. Thanks Gary for the time you spent with me. I have learnt alot and I consider that I have made a good friend:)

I fear Laminge won't need a set cut for the Viper. I think we may have lost him for good. In the not too distant future we may have a Dodge member on our forums and the keys won't need to be cut.
