    my r32 vs. 97 cobra (worth the read)

    http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...1&page=1&pp=25

    Well, as you can see in the above link, i am having an arguement between a guy with a cobra and my car. We ran a few months back, and the cobra could stick with me only at higher rpms, and at lower rpms, i would totally kill him, especially from a roll. We are going to run tomorrow and get it on tape.

    What do u guys think the outcome will be from a stop to about 80-90mphs? I have chip intake exhaust mod in my R32 and he has just an upgraded clutch. Remember, we are doing this from a stop.

    I recall some of your past races on here, and I think you'll walk him no problem from a stop.

    Does he know your all-wheel drive? Or is he one of those people that thinks madd domestic torque rules all races? Besides, if you took him from a roll the AWD launch is just going to put him that much farther behind you....

    +1. If you hang with him at a roll, then you will walk him from a dig. as we all now AWD > RWD from a stop.

    yeah, from low mph ranges, i start pulling on him instantly. From higher mph ranges, he sticks with me, and i think he may have inched on me, if not i did. I cannot quite remember, but up to a 100 from lets say 40mph, we were about dead even. From a stop i raced him once, and ate him alive, but he stopped trying after my launch. I think up to 70 (what he wants to race till) i will have him a good few car lengths.

    AWD > RWD from a stop on a poorly prepped street with crappy tires. . . at the track, not really.
