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.
