Okay, this is pretty cool... Ralph wrote this in the comments section of my Viper story:

“We had 48 Journalist thru the Viper last week, some drove it harder than others...Mike drove it especially well and was literally tossing it around the autocross and clearly having a good time! Nobody spun out, wrecked a car or even put 4 wheels off ( we had some creative curb slicing). I have been to dozens of Viper event and rides over the years...that has never happened! I also saw drivers pushing the car (more than I normally see from Viper newbees) and speeds getting faster all day. That is what a driver's car is suppose to you find your depth and have some itself to spare. Have a Happy Thanksgiving enthusiast, without you there is no us!” - Ralph Gilles

Like I said, he's great for the brand.
