track announcer -1, me - 0

i have too much tire (26x8.5) for my power (est. ~170rwhp/~200ftlbs) and with the 4 cyl front springs and rear control arms, i'm launching like a mofo... so what i do is launch hard and she pulls up, then plops down and just kinda "cruises" the rest of the way down the track. the slicks are killing my 60's... 2.0!

well, the track announcer said, "let's see how these two cobras run"... i was racing a low 10 sec '03 cobra with eveyr bolt on and light weight mod, plus a live axle and 33 splines. it was a close race.

so i do the usually badass launch and plop... and he says, "oh... looks like the green one is having some problems".

then a few seconds later, a laugh.."oh... heh... it's a v6" "next up we have..."

dam those are still badass times for that v6. but those slicks are not needed till you are haveing really bad traction issues. like me.

ps you and me racing would be pretty dam close btw. youd launch on me but id pull to the bitter end. but then again im more stock.

between my car being vandalized a year ago and a front end collision offering me the chance to get whatever parts i wanted for free, i have basically a 99 cobra... the only difference is my 01 tinted headlights (and badging), seriously.

i should be about 14.7-14.8 and am happy to report that the car has it in her. kinda makes me want my n2o back,but with the blower stuff at least "progressing", i'm content.

dammit, youd own me in the 1/8, id still be chirping from the dam spool. actually i have yet to run her, but theres another gst with just an intake and muffler(no catback) and he ran a 14.7. and i took him by a car on the street. so.......

but youd definately launch on my ***.

oh and theres no 1/8 tracks around here. were all suckers for the 1320.

i can't touch the motor until we do before/after dyno/test/track times of the s/c. if it was up to me i'd have the power steering gone and cammed/ported, but i have to wait! i dynoed 178rwhp/201rwtq though today with just an ud pulley/gt exh/cai, so i'm happy. it's a good baseline... maybe if i was to get it dynoed after just a cam you'd have a solid power gain dyno with video/pictures/people to vouch for your cam. :approve: just messing.
