    run in with a mustang

    i'm driving back home and i see a black SVT cobra mustang convertible ahead of me so i think to myself "hey why not lets see how i measure up" so i follow him to the stoplight but i'm behind him. when the light turns green he pushes hard and i follow close to him. we come up to the next light and wait for it to turn green. well, the light goes and i slip it at 4000 or so, not as good as what i normally do but heres the surprising part: even though i ended up losing, i consistently stayed about a 1/4 car behind the cobra at all times. even when he looked like he was about to get away from me he had to shift, and then i started closing in on him, and then i shifted and he got a little further ahead. it went on like that till about 4th gear.

    overall, a loss for me, but i bet the mustang owner was really suprised to see a "stock" (hehe ) wrx keeping up with him, especially when he's running those 8-9in wide tires and got so much torque to the ground.

    well a 4.6 dohc cobra doesn't make that much torque.....when you can make 380 ft/lbs at the tires without a power adder thats a lot of torque to the ground

    He was probably surprised to see you keeping up. I've never had a run in w/ a cobra, but older GTs, new GTs are not very interesting anymore. I wanna see how I match up against a SS, lightning or a cobra. Good try man.

    thanks!

    it was a newer age cobra, btw. i don't know what year, but it has the current generation bodystyle, so thats all i knew about it.

    yeah a lightening matchup would be a cool race. those trucks haul!...i can't begin to imagine how the competition will get when dodge releases the SRT-10 Ram pickup, which is supposed to compete w/ the lightning, i think
