    Mediocre kill in my slower car

    My 2000 was hit, and now has a bad MAF and has been down on and off for about 2 months now So I've been driving the Cobra as my daily driver. Anyway, I was on the freeway today and I was in the fast lane going about 80 in 5th. This guy in a brand new maxima (dealer tags) was riding my ass, so I got over like the polite driver I am but instead of passing me, he just paced me and looked like he wanted some. So I obliged, downshifting only to 4th and gunning it. He followed suit, but I put about 8 lengths on him to about 110 so I let out. He gave me the ricer flyby and I never saw him again. Guess he was disappointed in his new car.

    FWIW, I get a ton of people trying to race my cobra, cause its a 94 and they had the regular v6 "mustang" lettering on the bumper, as well as the stock v6 hoods too...I think people tend to think I have a v6 with cobra badging cause more people attempt to mess with the cobra than with the GT!!

    Damn. Sux 4 U! Of course I would not want a V8 powered rear wheel drive musclecar to enjoy every day.

    On a side note: do you think anyone on your RaccoonRacing site would be interested in the car I am trying to sell in my sig? vvv

    Good kill. Sometimes it's fun putting people in their place.

    I know what you mean. Back in early March I had some fun with a guy with a white 94 Cobra. I thought it was a V6 because I also couldnt see any exhaust pipes. That was until I heard the engine. He had cut his exhaust short.

    Yea, cutouts are LOUD...but they get your underbody all dirty from the exhaust carbons...

    I look for pipes and so far haven't faced cutouts. If it looks like a V6 -- especially with a modded WRX -- that's not a respectable challenge. But most newer GT's and pre-03 Cobras are a blast to race. Nonetheless, I'll still not challenge a heavily modded GT or Cobra or a close-to-stock '03 SVT: Too many too easily in the low 12's or faster.

    You'd be amazed what can happen on the street though. It doesnt do much good for a car to have 100whp more than you if it can't put it down without spinning everywhere. I've had my share of stoplight races where the other car *should* have won, but didnt. Don't be afraid of those other cars...... unless you're going from a roll!

    Yea, but on the other hand, i've "won" a lot of the races i've been lacking traction in, when the other person lets out cause im sliding towards them, bouncing off the rev limiter, tires squealing, exhaust roaring...lol...
