    02SS6spd VERT!

    All I know is a couple weeks ago my neighbor with an older porsche was behind me in the twisties when I was in the gt and I know he was trying to stay with me but once we got in the curves real good and I kept the shifting on point, he was no match! I felt completely comfortable too! My seats in the SS are more supportive for curves than the GTs though.

    by the way you said you rode in a 02 gt, did you drive it? Maybe the driver was incompetant.

    and if your z isn't doing a nicely on curves just find out what would make it equal to or better than an SS in handling.

    i really dont think stock for stock an ss could handle with an IRS snake... sorry...

    in a straight line.. well yeah...

    i have an 00 vette, buddy has a 96 z, and other buddy has a 99 snake... and though the z will walk him pretty easy 0-60 the snake will way out handle the z in a turn...

    man you just went from a ss to a z racing. I really really really believe a SS has way better suspension than a z, I'm not 100% sure but I think it's a mix between v6 fbody suspension and ls1 power. Correct me if I'm wrong. They may have changed the sway bars on the z for the better.

    sorry man its still IRS vs. straight axle... and since they dont have SFC's or STB's... its aint working for em...

    and what is the available difference... shocks?

    oh sorry your right i guess i should have compared the cobra to his ws6, which still stands no chance...

    hahahahaha, you should see what she had before the gt! She had a hyundai sonata, atleast she went muscle! she went from a 3.0ltr to a 4.6 and I'm damn proud of her, its a 5spd and the whole 9. When she just up and bought the car she didn't even know how to drive it. I had a really good idea and I basically got used to it real fast all in one night and I taught her.

    You guys already know I'm always cracking jokes on her mustang, but its funny to me because I'm not anti-mustang, I'm just pro-fbody.

    I'd actually take a quite a few fords, I like the gt40, 0304 cobras, some of the 05 and up roushes, and some of the older stangs with the 351 cleveland in them. I'd like a lot more different chevies though.

    new z06, ttop ws6 98 and up (black), 70 or 71 split chrome bumper Camaro z28amn I said chevies, I got a ws6 up there) You get my point, I'd also like a 98 or up z28 to go all out on, I'd love to have an old 396 chevelle(gotta have red on that one). I'll stop here, I could go on all day

    yea a lot of people think us fbody guys are haters on all fords and mustangs in general, but that's just not true (at least in my case). we all talk a lot of crap but at the end of the day i think that most of us at least respect the ford guys. the same can't be said for the ricers though. i'd take an american muscle car over a rice cooker any day.

    Same here bro.

    My exact thoughts. I like GM better than Ford in general, but the Mustang is still a nice Muscle car. Especially the Mach 1 and Cobra.

    As for Jap crap riceburners?? Hell no, I hate them cars

    Ok this article is one the 01 cobra and we got its stats.

    The 99 cobra owners, were their cars recalled? I mean did the owners get screwed or did they eventaully get their power back?

    Were there 02 cobras?

    I know there wasnt any MAINSTREAM 00 cobra, but no one ever mentions shit about 01 (and possibly 02 cobras), just the 03s.

    your gf went from a 3.0 liter to a 4.6, I went from a 1990 VW Vanagon with 90 hp to my SS. I went from being the slowest guy in town to one of the fastest. but hey, the Vanagon has a fold down bed in the back.

    I hear the 01s and 02s are the same like the 03s and 04s are the same. In 2000 I think there were only cobra "R"s No regular cobras... So basically the only scarey ones are the 03-04 cobras.

    There were no 00 Cobra's, or 02 Cobra's.
    93 only fox body cobra
    94-95 5.0 Cobra, sleek body style
    96-98 4.6 DOHC modular, same body
    99 new body style
    00 Cobra R only
    01 pretty much a fixed version of the 99

    yea now that we have them rice cannons out there, we have kind of teamed up with mustang owners to take them losers out.
    same with GM and Ford as companies. GM and ford have stopped battling each other and are now fighting imports.

    but now its more fair, naturally aspirated vs naturally aspirated. no superchargers to help their engines. Engine for engine, we've got it.
