On this episode of The J-Turn, Jessi Lang meets up with Motor Trend's testing team to bring you a firsthand look at the instrumented testing procedures that each new vehicle undergoes. Using the 2013 SRT Viper to demonstrate each aspect of the test, Jessi meets with Motor Trend's Testing Director, Kim Reynolds, to experience the vehicle dynamics through the Figure 8. Then, she meets with Scott Mortara for acceleration testing, where together they show that properly launching a car requires much more than simply stepping on the gas. See how the manual transmission, 640 horsepower Viper behaves when put through its paces, and find out how well they're able to launch the 10-cylinder beast.
