95 Cobras are vastly under rated @ 240hp, all always herd more like 270HP. I advise you to be ready as the Cobra may surprise you. As far as the other guys mods, I guess you only know what he told you?

All I'm getting at is don't under estimate the opponent.

My first 95 was a GTS that ran 8.80-9.0 in the 1/8 all day and every 5.0 cobra I ever raced was faster, even the verts.

You will spank the cobra. As long as your 347 is a strong running motor. The cobra is heavier and slower then your car. No worries.

Re: 95 cobra vs 93 347?[race]

He's heavier, but depending on the actual power each of you makes it could be a toss up or come down to the better driver.

Prep your car, remove any unnecessary weight, practice your launches so you don't bog or spin too much.

Most of the 95's I have ran across were easily beaten with my car, but a couple of them blew my doors off too. You never really know until the race is over.

You should have someone video the race from the stands, I would love to see what both of your cars will be running.
