Well lets look at your theory. First off, most bikes I see at the track run high 10's to low 11's. The ones running low 10's and high 9's are the fastest bikes on the street. Big CC engines.Originally posted by Ponm
I like cobras but refuse to believe a modded cobra could hang with a 600 or 750cc bike. If you have beaten such bikes(which a 600cc might be possible if you have a good deal of money in your car), but running a 12 sec 1/4 is not even going to get you close to todays 600s. New 600s are running low to mid 10s at over a 130, pretty much comparable to 750s of a few years ago. I do like cobras though. Ok, I'm off my soap box now.
I am claiming to pull 600cc and 750cc bikes on a roll from 40/50 MPH up. There are MANY claims of this by Cobras.
0-60 in 2.0 seconds
Stock 4.6 0-60 and about 3.9 in decently modded form.
Thats about a 2 second difference. So if your bike can do a 10 FLAT, ny Cobra did a 12 FLAT at 118 on STOCK tires. You take the LAUNCH out of the equation WHERE THE BIKES SHINE AND THE COBRA LOOSES ALL ITS TIME then it appears the Cobra should edge one out on a roll.
You see, a bike gets MOST of its time on the 0-60. After that you are not accelerating at the same rate. If you are 2 seconds faster 0-60 and 2 seconds faster in the 1/4 AND you take away the 0-60 part, they should be close.
If you think about it, most of these bikes are really 10.5-11.5 seconds bikes. My Cobra COULD produce a LOW 11 second run. Why a 12 flat?
1. Stock rubber.
2. Long shift points, crappy driver.
So if you took my same Cobra and made the car STICK to the ground at launch AND you had someone who could drive the thing better you could EASILY shave off another 1/2 to 3/4 of a second or more.
So taking the launch out of the equation leaves crappy shifts. Well on a roll from 60 MPH I think I probably had it in 3rd. A 3rd to 4th shift is almost instant.
So you see, it could be more like a 11 second bike against a 11 second car. ONLY the 0-60 was taken out of the equation where the BIKE makes MOST of its ground.
Hey I have MANY "in car" video's showing how fast my Cobra went from a 60 MPH roll to 120+. I timed it and if I remeber correctly the Cobra went form 60 MPH t0 90 MPH in about 1 second. and to 120 in about 2.5 or so.... The car was down right NASTY fast....
I can email the files if someone needs to see them. I did have them posted on here at one point. I will see if I can find them....
MOdded 03 Cobra's beat 600cc and 750cc bikes ALL THE TIME from a roll.
