    Me Vs. 2001 Cobra

    had a little fun for the first time in a while today.... cruising along and i came up to a Late Model CObra..... I thought they were 400 HP but i just checked and there 320... so i was thinking why would i waste gas .... we both cruisng around 60 mph when i can hear him keep tapping the throttle... So i give in and give it a go.... Downshift to 3rd and bang... he also hits him and i have the lead up to 105 when i see a light in the distance and shutdown.... had maybe a length on him but i could see him gaining when i was shutting down....

    I opened my window to chat.... I gave the "NICE RIDE" .... he said the same to me .... i asked him what year and he said 2001 stock.... must have been but had some graphics on his car..... i closed out the Conversation with " u got to much power up high ( he was surprised when i said that ... he probably thought i was an STI )... but from a standstill we should be even for a little while " .... light turned green and i turned off ... Enough Ware on my engine for one day

    o my car looks better at least to me

    Yeah with those mods, he should have you on a roll, but nice run anyway and congrats on the win. The 03-04 Cobras come with 390 HP from the factory, that could have been ugly if he dropped it down to 3rd. Why would he put graphics on a Cobra? That is just plain stupid and a waste of cash for mods.

    someone who puts that crap on a stock cobra has a 95% likely hood to being a crappy driver.

    what were the specs on the 2001 cobras? I know that the mid to late 90s cobras ran low 14s in the 1/4 not sure the mph.

    I know I thought it was funny that they ran the 1/4 on the dyno, and the fact the #s aren't close to what the car would run on a track.

    Also, many people do put the vinyls in the cobra emblem on the rear, but anything on the sides is kind of weird and F&F. I think the 01's run high 13's stock, just a guess though.

    stock 01 cobras run 13.5's at roughly 104-105. that is with a 2.0 60'. if the driver is good he can get them to 13.1-13.2's with drag radials. I sucked when i got mine, what kills most 99+ cobras is their IRS. once they hit their powerband from a stop the car goes into a terrible wheel hop. hence the low 60' times. When mine was stock i ran the numbers i posted. that was with about 10k miles and paper filter stock.
