    Raced a Tool in a Cobra

    Well I was crusing down the street with a friend and pull behind a Mustang Cobra (older bodystyle pre-1999 or 2000 I think) at a stoplight. This thing had the loudest exhaust and widest tires I have ever seen on a Mustang. Well, the light changed green and he took off only to get the next red light with me beside him. I pull along side him and he is revving it and inching forward. I give him a little rev and he looked over and yells "yeah right" as to say I dont stand a chance. Now remember that my car is not loud because it has a stock box on it. So we are wating for the light to turn green and bam! He jumps out the whole a split second before me, however I just dump the clutch and preceed to shoot by him and gain an instant 2 car lengths by 2nd gear. 3rd gear comes up and I pull another car length then shut it down. Well we got the next stop light together but he did not pull up next to me. Finally though he yells out "do you go to the raceway on Wed." I tell him sometimes, then he says for me to come out there because he wants to race me again because he got a bad start Then not to be out done my friend who owns a 99' Z28 with tons of bolt-ons says to him, "it will be same result every time, he says "I dont think so" then my friend says, I guess trying to represent F-Bodys around the Nation "yeah, well my Z28 wont have any mercy on you either."

    nice...Mustangs may be getting to be in a league of their own now though...I was watching Autoweek on the Speed Channel (i.e. NASCAR channel)and they were reviewing the new SVT that Ford is putting out....something close to a forced 400hp off the showroom floor... I have a new respect these cars.

    Yep...hurts don't it...

    They (Autoweek) were saying that preliminary testing on the SVT are cranking out 390 horses and similar numbers of torque....
    ...Also they are achieving this using the supercharger from the Lightning series of trucks (which also look as if they are just getting faster)...They will also be retailing for nearly $40000. For that $$$ you could get an STI and some healthy mods!

    I used to own a 97 Cobra and with just 4.10 gears I ran a 13.4 at 106-107?? (can't remember mph) on stock tires; everything else stock.

    Completely stock I ran 13.8s. I ran I 14.4+ w/ my wagon
    fully stock.

    Now, I got a WRX wagon b/c I got tired of spinning on wet roads and needed more backseat room for my 2 year old son; it's almost as quick around town and handles way better, and have yet to regert the purchase, but it's not nearly as fast as my cobra.

    I do miss the sound of that V8 every time I cranked it up; who needs a stereo when your car sounds like that!

    So your WRX must have some mods for sure.
