2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10: +1 for Ergonomics

May 24, 2010

The weekend found me under the weather and too sick toput more than a few dozen miles onour 2009 Dodge Viper. I know. That's lame. But while adjusting the steering wheel's tilt, I found this button, which I never expected to find in the Viper.

It adjusts the height of the brake pedal andthere's quite a significant range of movement. I already like the close spacing of the brake pedal relative to the throttle pedal in the Viper. And after fiddling with the button a bit, I got it so that the brake and gas are now on the same plane (at least for my feet). The result? A near-perfect arrangement for heel-and-toeing. If I had it my way, this feature would be offered in all manual-shift cars purporting to offer performance.
