    Raced a 2001 Cobra SVT

    My friend got his cobra like 4 months ago. So i decided to drop by, and say hello, havent seen him since last summer. He took me for a ride in that thing, and let me tell you, that car is a monster. Its fast as hell. He raced a WS6 Transam and beat it by 2 car lenghts, so its no poke. I knew right after he took me on the ride, that if we raced he would **** me up bad. So anyways, we decide to race, just to benchmark. Im bone stock, manual, he is also bone stock manual. We take it on the road we always go on, 3 lanes wide, no driveways and no cars almost ever. So we have our friend that came along, step out of the car, and do the starting signs. We take off, im ahead by half a car, i know, i suck at launching my car everyone here seems to get 1.5-2 car leads, all i can ever get is half a car lead, sigh, i slip the clutch at 4.5k, maybe i just do it wrong. Anyways, all through first gear, i pull. Of course that lasts till about 40 mph. Once we go into 2nd, he starts pulling, pretty damn hard, and at 50 he passes me, we went to about 95. He was a good 5-6 cars ahead of me. Sigh, i had NO CHANCE. oh Well. Was a friendly race, but it showed me, that against any higher performance car, a bone stock WRX is ****ed after 60 or so. Till 60 i basically had him, but after that, he jsut blew by like i was standing still. Anyways, i got a godspeed uppipe sitting next to me, a MBC, and a stromung downpipe, they are all waiting to go into my baby, all i need to buy is the gauges, before i put all this stuff in. After i put all my stuff in, he wants to race again, maybe he wont beat me as bad, or so i HOPE .

    Later,
    Bobby D

    Your time will come that you run into a SVT Cobra that cant launch. A cobra will KILL a rex with a good driver who can launch.

    Yo

    Don't you mean "can" launch. Well you know that I'm also NOT stock and raced aganist a 2002 M3s which has 333hp. Point being is that ... yes it's up to the driver when they cars are almost equal ... point also being it's NOT my problem if I just "happen" to meet people who can't driver. I guess the ones that "can" drive don't act like punks. And always remember I don't have a problem loosing to cars "faster" than me. Humm if you're running 60+ hp more than me you BETTER beat me.

    You are d**n right, ppl that race reqularly knows how to drive and also know how to lose gracefully

    No one can win every single race, I don't care what you drive, someday somewhere someone will blow your doors off and that's racing.

    Ummm...

    You're right, there always is. Well so I went to the bank to get some money and the bank is right next to a McDonald's. Well while I'm at the drive thru ATM there is this group of highschool or young college kids next to me in the McDonald's parking lot showing off their Mustangs. It was the previous style body and the girls where like wanting the guys to show off their cars so they started reving very loudly in the McDonald's parking lot. I'm just debating if I should start anything thing. The Mustang definitely sounded aftermarket but I just did my own thing drove off. I wonder if I should have asked them for a friendly quick street race? Hehe.
