    Manual Mach 1's are capable of low 13s at around 105-106mph. They are right there with stock LS1s with the M6 LS1 having a 2-3mph edge on the top end.

    I had raced one a few times @ the 1/4 mile. It was the best runs i've had so far. We both did low 13 runs. From a roll he would pull from you at any speed.
    V8+TQ+traction=
    F4t+too much traction=

    F4T = I4T, actually.

    I just got a 03 Cobra, but test drove a Mach1 and man are they fast. I saw one at the track put a hurting on a STI. The STI had the 60 ft and the 1/8, but he pulled the STI after that. Mach 1 ran 13.21 and the STI ran a 13.30.

    That STi needs to learn to drive.

    Not all STI run 13.1 from the factory. You see a big disparity between WRX's in the 1/4. I can run 14.0 in my stock WRX while others run 14.5 and they seem to be good drivers. Not all cars come equal from the factory. BTW early 03 Cobras made less RWHP than later 03. The diffrence was 20 RWHP. My car dynoed 385 RWHP stock but my buddies Dynoed 372 STOCK. The cars where made 5 month appart. Diffrence is a 12.7 1/4 and a 13.00 for my buddy.

    I raced one about 2 weeks ago...short version goes like this: The guy had beat the s**t out of his Mach 1 already and had bald tires, he had no traction & couldn't drive too well, I had AWD, he got owned. We shut down around 100 but he was gaining fast. Had he had decent tires (bad driver or no) I would have got my a$$ handed to me.
