Laguna Seca T6

Someone told me it is possible to take this turn FLAT in a stock Viper with Hoosiers.... Can you really do it?

That would really seem to depend on the horsepower and grip of the car involved. Here at VIR, a 12A powered ITA car on Toyos can take a lot of sections flat out foot-to-the-floor-and-wanting-more, whereas cars like the Daytona prototypes in the Rolex series have to feather the throttle through the same section.

(for reference, I'm talking about the T7->T10 complex, aka "The Climbing Esses')

i dont recall seeing a viper run at laguna, but i think i ve seen just about everything else. i think 6 is a lift and get back on it, some cars might do a little braking.

your question is a weird one btw, viper is a totally different car than a 7
