    Upset Cobra owner in Maryland (bit long winded)

    I was on my way back from York, PA yesterday afternoon when a lowered black Cobra (it wasnít a new one, this one looked to be a 1999, 2001) pulled up next to me on the Hi-way. He looked over at me all cocky and revved as his girl looked over and smirked at me. At first I wasnít going to go because I wasnít sure how my new set up would stand against something like that. After playing with me for a little I decided to take the bait. I get up by him, drop to forth, that brought my rpm's up to about 4100 or so, look over at him and then we take off, from 4th I proceed to pull about 6 to 8 cars till I went into 5th then I shut it down. By that point we were going way to fast I was coming up on traffic. The greatest part of this story was as he passed by me slowly after the race, he looked at me with a really confused look on his face, it was actually more of a blank expressionless look, and his girl was yelling at him about something. I would hope that she was yelling at him cause he didnít win, when he was the one that instigated it. I got onto the web and looked at the numbers on these things, I cant say if he had a lot of work done or not, I do know that he was lowered with exhaust, that much was apparent. Anyhow I was rather pleased with how my car pulled, 4th felt so nice.

    Nice kill. I have nothing against V8s, but I hate it when they get all cocky when racing imports like that. Good job putting him in his place

    I have a healthy Stage 4 set up. Look at my profile, everything is in there. I pulled a conseravtive 286hp. Quick run down would be PE1820, FMIC, UTEC, and all supporting mods, Using a Turbosmart E-Boost, set to 20.9 psi.

    I always get the nod from Mustang owners. I have talked to a few and they seem to dig WRX's.

    nice kill...nice numbers with your setup also


    ..mustang guys seem to be cool...this excludes the 6 cylinder mustang owners...the v8's (gt or cobra) seem to appreciate wrx's...i've been asked to race and they are friendly...plus they got balls and will go off a dig if you ask them.....the 6cylinder mustang guys are almost as bad as riced out civics...always revving and trying to get you to waste gas
