    So any other Viper owners here that are also considering the new Supra in manual off course (if offered)?

    Here are some pics of mine for attention..

    I noticed you went with smaller wheels on the rear - I assume your focus is drag with this weapon?

    Very cool. Can't stop looking up Vipers of late. It's a problem. I fear it will get expensive.

    Looks to be a Mickey Thompson ET Street R so def drag racing! Had a set of those on one of my old Supra and the sidewalls were so soft, awful for lateral grip, mind-bogglingly great for hooking on the highway.

    I still have my OE sidewinders for those forest runs. I went with this setup cause I swear by MT ET streets. Unfortunately MT changed the compound with the replacement tire model (SS) and they don’t work as well in the Z06.

    If you love/appreciate Supras.. then a GenV Viper is something you’d love/appreciate as well. Extremely well behaved animal.

    very cool. A lot of my mates with obscene power Supras run a similar tyre I think! Totally unable to get grip without them.

    Is your viper standard? The side-pipes have always been a Viper thing iirc?

    Sadly the cost of a viper here is obscene - something like yours would be $200-250k AUD here.

    One day....

    Vipers are only offered in standard.. only Vipers with rear exit exhaust were the gen2 GTS’

    Side pipes are cool and annoying at times. Lol
