Re: [DMCForum] Marc Levy's "Scream Machine"



Nope..  I did choose the VQ35 because it had a similar
weight to the PRV.  Both are all aluminum.

I hope Bob is working on a "drag strip event" for DCS,
maybe he will also have access to a scale?

With almost 300 miles on it now, I have not been too
aggressive with the handling but it does not feel
noticably different than 1860.
