Guys we are overlooking the 60 ft times. The STI had an advantage of 4.5/10 on the 60 ft time. The Cobra Made up 3.5/10 on the top end. A better 60 ft time by the Cobra would of had had a diffrent ending.
A 60 ft time of 2.0 would of given the Cobra someting like a 12.9
1/4. but that goes to show you that the STI is still a better car. I belive that the STI could run consistanly 13.3's with 1.8 60 ft times, while the Cobra would be all over the place do to it's traction problems. I could see the cobra running some sub 13's it has been done, by car and driver and other mags, but if you read these mags it took them several tries to get these numbers. BtW the MACH 1 can run 13.10 to 13.20 all day long. The live axel is conducive for drag racing.
