Talking UPDATE Drusmith's Cobra

Hey guys been a while I know!!! Been crazy busy with work and running a Automotive group in MI on Facebook.

Here's an update on Winter projects.
- Full Tilt Boogie Racing complete IRS bushing kit was install. This kit is probable the best mod I have ever done for my Cobra! The rear end feels so much better! And NO Wheel hop at all! Traction has improve as well!!!
- Upgraded to level 2 half shafts due to one boot having a hole and another siliconed over by someone other than me.
- I bought the new rims, sitting in my garage
- Waiting on Drag Radials to get here tomorrow but unfortunately I have to be traveling on business again! LOL Went with 315/35/18 Toyo Proxe TQ, probably gonna have to role fenders.
- I did not go with nitrous, I was told by Kenne Bell that I should not run nitrous prior to blower and to go with direct port kit. Well that is expensive as Hell!! So I am putting that money towards next winters project which is Hellion Twin Turbo Kit!!! I want 900-1000 range summer of 2013!
- Also scheduled to be installed 1st week of April is 2 step and line locks!

So there is the update, again sorry I haven't been around much on the forum! Life of traveling salesmen. LOL Going to drags this summer once or twice to see if I can get in mid to low 11s. Once I do so i will be blacked flagged due to no role cage.

i will post pictures of car once I get rims and tires on!!!!

Great list!
I don't think they flag you until you break into the 9's.. Maybe it's different for a vert?

LOL I know right!!! Thats what I did last year on street tires. Never had a good launch. best run was 12.5 with 2.8 60ft (WTF) and 126mph. yeah do the math. Should get a 1.8 60ft with DRs, then I am already there.

Not the best choice in tires... But if you don't break a halfshaft you better be in low 11s. Would be sad for my little eaton vert to run better times.

Re: UPDATE Drusmith's Cobra

yea as said above until your 60ft time is good there is NO need to beat on the car ... so if your 60 sucks just give it a good run but no need to power shift or redline the crap out of it... once the 60 comes into where it needs to be then its game on.

This is my plan of attack. Kinda what I did last year. Keep it easy and did easy passes till I felt like I hit one that was decent on street tires and thats when I ran the 12.5 @ 127mph
