so i got to test drive a cobra today

03 yellow coupe cobra...........stock except exhaust and some gay vinyl on the hood advertising "500 hp"


so i made about 5 WOT passes in it.......it was fun. i was cruising at about 40 and we were waiting for the cop that was following us briefly to get far up the road and when he did, the dealer said "aight lets see what it ca---" at this point i had already went from 3-2 and dumped the clutch, broke loose for a good second, and pulled hard till 80, at which point i had to let up b/c the dealer was screaming like a *****


i tried launching it.............bad idea..........i probably left a good $20 worth of tire on the ground near the dealership.


but the good thing on top of this is that, according to the dealer, i have the fastest 0-80 time of all the test drives he's been in, in that car.....he said he's been 120 in an 05 roush, but didnt get up as quick i guess

overall, a good day

oh yeah, and i also took an 06 GT for a spin, but it was right after, so i wasnt all that thrilled with it...........it was quick, and i loved the gearing of the auto, but i just test drove a cobra before that, c'mon

SpectorV will never be able to get to a liquor store as quickly as Smurfin and I did in the Cobra.

Re: so i got to test drive a cobra today

Yeah those terminators are fun. The guy I bought my car from eventually made 520 hp to the wheels with a ported eaton and a few other mods... that thing was freakin insane.

That is my next upgrade...either port or whipple...prolly next spring.

And, he even said last night he could feel the difference from my car...he said it was no where as fast as mine.

I would love to take that salesman for a test drive...I bet I could beat kyle's newly established record. Could surely improve on that 120 in a roush deal as well.

yeah i could man...............maybe it was the way i was sittin or the fact i was driving it, but it didnt throw me back near as much as yours.........everytime jumped on it for more than 5 secs, the dealer turned into a little ***** and started screamin.............................but all that was probably the fact that there was a 90rwhp difference

****, that GT felt like my V6 after i drove that cobra..............i dont even wanna tell y'all how my 6 felt on the way home.............i coulda swore it took me a hour to get 5min down the road.

and no, you wont beat my record ..............cuz i can rip through gears, you should let me drive your car so i can prove it to ya

maybe that roush record though, if you can put up with eardrum-busting *****-like yelps and screams for you to slow down and stop and "thats too fast".............**** that road we were runnin it down is like a mini autobahn for me

I drove my cobra to the dealership when I test drove an 06 GT manual. The salesman kept trying to tell me the car had all kinds of horsepower...and kept asking if I could feel it. I was always like "Come on...giddy up...let's go...anytime now...". I am sure there is power there...but not after driving my car.

Now that was funny.

I will put the top down so the wind noise will drown it out...along with the exhaust tone.

Not yet...but the shop down the street from me just finished his twin turbo 04 cobra project recently. I haven't been down to see it yet...but I need to. He also has a single turbo 03 for the wife. lol

My buddy got a ticket test driving an '05 GTO. Don't know what the mph was, but he did a 1st through 4th WOT run...right past a cop. He said the dealer guy thought it was hilarious.
