    got beat by a cobra

    i raced a 2003 svt cobra we raced twice.. of a stop we had a flagger.. heres the take on the race:

    note: my sti is stock
    and the cobra claims that its stock(but he sounds like he is supercharge or shotting nos) but yea he claims to be stock

    first race
    on the launch i beat him about a car he was at my rear bumper, second gear he was still at my rear door, third gear he was ahead by maybe two feet(i was at his door), fourth gear he was gone maybe about 2 car ahead and kept pulling away..

    second race same result..

    man how fast are these cobras?
    can they actually beat the sti from a stop or the guy is bull****ting me sayin that its stock?

    2003 cobra has a stock supercharger. so you both are correct he IS stock and he DOES have a supercharger. They have 390 horsepower 390 lbs. of torque and I'm suprised he didn't take you by more.

    How do I know he had a stock supercharger? Thats EASY! He did not kill you by 3 bus lengths.... Heehhe!

    The Kenne Bell SC upgrade puts down around 700+ to the wheels.... You would know...

    That race is about EXACTLY what I would expect from a STOCK 03 Cobra (4.6L V8, Supercharger, 32 valves, 6 spd, IRS). They put down about 360 RWHP in stock form. MOst hit 370+ RWHP with just a K&N and over 400 with exhuast.

    The 03/04 Cobra with a good driver should beat the STI off the line most of the time. It should be a VERY close race to 60, then the Cobra should start to walk slowly, followed by a jog and then run away over 120....

    Thats the BEST and MOST ACCURATE depiction of an STi vs Cobra race I've seen....

    Nice!

    My friend has a 91 rs camero and put a 5.7L fuel injection LT1 in it (almost cried at the condition of the Vette it came out of). But we came up on a 03 Cobra one night sitting at a red light that had a fuel cell hanging down in the back. I wanted to see him bust our ass so I said, "Cory, dont let him know you want to race and dont rev it so he knows your not stock. Just when light turns green stomp it." We caught him off guard and took off from the light. That lasted for about 3 seconds as I heard what sounded like...like....like I dont know what it sounded like, but it was so loud I didnt hear the supercharger or exhaust, just the engine that was sooo loud it made my whole body quiver like a F14 doing a low pass overhead. We didnt even get out of first(remember we caught him off guard) before he flew by us I swear at least 20 mph faster than we were going. I have only those few seconds and the sweet smell of race gas to remember this by. There is no way he was stock.

    Join the club...We all have been beat by em...I never raced from a dig though. I would expect to win from a dig. But from a roll, I'm not quite there yet. Good loss, no shame there. They get faster as the mph get higher !

    i raced one about 1 week ago, you can tell they have a s/c by the loud wine they put out when they get on the gas. He pulled on me until i hit 3500rpms, then i left him behind. It wasnt fair though, he thought i was stock. He had a pulley, catback and X pipe.
