There was one of these groups your talking about by my house busted recently they raced in a industrial streets and would blocked of the streets so no one came in. But when the cops came they just blocked all of them in by just blocking the end of the streets and not a single person got away. Like 50 cars were inpounded and everyone got fined and some arrested... not worth it.

yeah it's actually a full length documentary...we have local events here once a month that has over 200 very quick cars...there is only 1 rule at this meet. No Racing...why...because we like to be able to meet without issue. cops roll through all the time and usually stop to chat or check out the cars. any cars caught being stupid are banned from the meets

Not really haha they do sale Legal mods we drive mustangs not hondas

When you buy mods they come with a little sticker for smog checks

The only illegal thing is having no front plates, front window to dark, having straight pipe, having a fart can, or buying cheap no name mods that aren't OEM Which i wouldn't put on my car anyways...

So no sir im not ****ed...

But will the springs from a cobra be able to support 600hp? Cuz I've found a guy who has a singleport 3.8 that he's making 800hp using a TT. And imma do that setup but aiming for 600.

You do realize that people with cars like this put extensive time and work and money into there cars building it.. its not just drop a twin turbo in and drive... your car wouldn't handle it.

If I'm not researching the best suspension I'm researching what I need in preperation for a TT set up. Forged internals ill have once I buy the supercoupe engine. I'm going to rebuild that engine & sc b4 I put it in and add the mods ill need for the TT. like better cam, etc. Plus ill be swapping to an aluminum drive shaft. 8:8 cobra rear (1995's). Trans as of right now can stay stock but when I begin doing the TT ill have a shop here in town put the performance internals in to support 800ft/lb@4g. Will also be upgrading the front caliper to a 14" caliper w/ drilled/slotted rotor and the rear to have a 12" caliper with drilled/slotted rotors.
