Drove our Viper for the first time on the road today on our way to a pre-booked MoT. Not strictly necessary but a good first venture to sort out brakes, speedo, headlights and tracking. After getting thoroughly bemused by the electrics, I got Anthony to finish the car and he did a beautiful job including the interior in traditional dark blue carpet and magnolia leather with blue piping. Somehow managed to do 32 miles ! A couple of issues such as engine heat in the cockpit and no provision for turning down the heater, but these will get sorted, then it's on to IVA. Not sure whether our 4-point static Willans harnesses are ok?

Anyone know how many Vipers are up and running ?

Kiel and Duncan,

No I don't think that steering wheel would pass IVA, but I have Jaguar one which will.

Well done with yours, it looks good. Best of luck with the IVA.
