Auto crossing my cobra

I can't wait for it! Going this Sunday to see how it does. I know how it does on the strip. Time to see how it handles around a tight course! My friend at a local car meet told me about it! Only costs 40 bucks and I get to be there all day. Should be a blast!

WARNING!!!!

Autocross can be very addictive. The first signs are, just buying small parts, bushings, stuff like that. Then you gradually move to buying bigger stuff, tires for example, or maybe a better differential. Finally, it will be the entire suspension.
Do NOT seek help if this occurs! Just go with it...

You're going to have a GREAT time!

MM Subframe Connectors
Corbeau Harness Bar
5 point Harness (x2, driver and passenger)
MM Panhard Bar

I also got a full 4.10 gear & install kit (for free, perks of new job) that I want to put in shortly.
Then will be ordering a MM Torque Arm shortly after that.

Holy smokes!!!!
Nice!

Remember that black GT that was at Marina? The 666 car? Aside from the gears ( maybe?) that is the same setup that car has.
It seems to work on that car pretty damn good, should be good on yours...

Not sure on the coilovers but the front end of that car is stock as far as k member and a-arms... I peeked.
I was positive that his mod list had the k member on it but unless someone is making a high performance replica of the factory unit, it's stock, along with the A-arms.

I was just looking at some of last years results. That car was almost a second SLOWER than my car when it had comparable tires to what I run.
It wasn't at the first event apparently. Neither was the winner of ESP last year, Bob. Hmmm, it worries me that Bob wasn't there. It looks like there was a pretty fast Trans am in ESP though.
DAMNIT!!!!!!!!
I can't wait to get back out there!

I can't wait to also. I'm really trying to just get some of this suspension work done first. Hopefully after what I've got now, plus the torque arm, panhard bar, and 4.10s I can go do some more.... I've been looking into tires for the track, to possibly to put on my stock wheels.. Just not in the budget.
