yup the two cars are not that far off that you cant win by driver skills alone. If both cars are in good shape and driven to their limit the cobra shoudl come out ahead but not by very much. With your mods that helps even the playing field so I am not surprised by the results.

It's a lot of fun I've only made about 15 passes, The more passes you make the better you'll get.
