    Magik man, (I am not starting crap here) the drivers of the pullied Cobras must be new to it, like me. A pullied Cobra should running in the mid to high 11s. Stock Cobras run high 12s (where you are running). Your 12.8 1/4 mile just doesn't seem like it should "run with MOST pullied Cobras." I put down 466 rwhp 473 rwtq with just a pulley, tune , catback and intake.

    Most of my track time is speant running the 1/8th, however, I've heard tons and tons of stories. But you got to compare apples to apples, and it's same track same day. I have managed to beat or come with in .1 seconds of every pullied cobra I've raced, and that's inclusive of about 5 different ones. I'll stand behind what I said, because I'm only talking about what I've raced, and what I've seen. It's not starting crap though.... it's ok to disagree

    Also a 460rwhp cobra(3600lbs), is abour dead even with a 410rwhp vette(3200lbs). Going by hp numbers doesn't make sense... go by apples to apples at the track.

    Like i said, they must be new to it. Because that time is a full second slower than where they should be. But that is what they are running. I don't disagree that a vette with less WHP will run with a higher WHP Cobra, due to weight and traction, but you don't have 410 rwhp unless those mods are not your only mods in your sig. I was just pointing out my observation that those pullied Cobras should be running much better than they are.

    Most pullied cobras aren't putting down 460.... atleast to my knowlege. I wasn't saying I murdered them, but I hang dead even with them.

    I am only getting sound no picture of that video. But if you look at the second post the pianoman admits to having more than the posted 350 rwhp since he beat a 354 rwhp vette by 3.5 lengths (which is a fair amount). Most pullied Cobras are putting down over 440 rwhp. I have a 2.8 pulley (not the smallest one but they run between 3.0 to 2.7about). Most pullied Cobras have at least the same mods as I do. Catback, intake, pulley & tune(if they are running untuned that is retarded). I have not seen any that I recall pullied Cobras under 440 rwhp. Ahh but who cares. This thread is retarded, at leats thekid who started it was. We should probably let it die and go kill some subies.
