    LOL. Sound cars and drivers for the 03-04 cobras. And yes that is plural... as in its happened more than once. And I know the goats are a shade slower stock. But these cars weren't stock either. I don't know about you but I'm a driver over here
    If you re-read my post, I never question your driving ability. I questioned the driving ability of the 03-04 Cobras. I know what happens between an 03/04 Cobra and an LS1 with headers and equal drivers. Our definitions of "hanging with" might be vastly different too.

    No I understood your post. I was just letting you know that the drivers of the cars are good drivers. I think my definition of "hanging" is probably pretty close to yours.

    So you have headers, a bigger converter say 3500/4000, a cam and not just a baby cam 23x/23x or bigger,gears say 3.73's and not running 17's or 18's out back... That or a 150 shot of nitrous ???

    im sorry i really dont mean to jack this thread but......
    am i reading this right that these 03-04 cobras were modded as well?
    and you were 'hanging' with them and your mods are pretty much UD pulley, some suspension and LTS? and all sound drivers? doesnt add up, sure these where termis or earlier model cobras

    Cobra mods were: intake and exhaust. 2nd cobra was pullied. Also raced a procharged gt with 4.10s, true trac and full exhaust and we stayed next to each other till 140. Raced twice. Good runs.

    Exactly right, this is what the term "sleeper" originated from.

    That's just it,,,if you want to pull off the sleeper trick, the car has to be dead silent, dual tailpipes have to be hidden, and any other indication that there is even a V8 under the hood. Even the wheels some of these guys are running in the pictures are dead giveaways. They need painted steelies with poverty caps,,,,just sayin

    I'd say even faster than that. In the FAST series there are guys with 40 year old muscle cars running stock F70-14 bias ply's and look like they just rolled off the showroom floor, and they are dipping into the 9's at over 140 mph now, right down to their factory exhaust manifolds.
    And yes I agree, the car has to be quiet.

    Looking completely stock and doing this..........You never know what you might be parked next to on a cruise night.
    I ran in the purestock part of this series years back. Even the hemi's and ramair birds aren't necessarily sleepers, but when they look completely stock you don't expect them to do this......

    mikat1 just to put things into perspective there is NO way that you would be able to hang with an 03-04 termi if they are modded and have good drivers. its just not going to happen no matter how much you try and bs us.

    i know from personal experience. i have a buddy here in norman with an 04 and he is just pullied with exhaust and he killed me no questions asked.

    I am not arguing at all.

    You said you hang with 03/04 Cobra's. Even in STOCK trim.

    Let's see it.

    Unless you can only hang with them in the "Internet" world.

    I will even bring a video camera so you can post up the video on this forum

    Maybe if you knew how to drive your shit.... he wouldn't have killed you. I have no reason to try and "bs" anyone on this forum. Believe me, don't believe me I could really careless. The fact is that it happened and I'm proud of that. I thought this forum was for people who had a common interest in ls1 based vehicles. Not a forum for a bunch of pu$$ies to sit around and try and down the next guy for his accomplishments. Maybe if you girls could drive your cars instead of your mouths you might have a couple wins under your belts too. All these internet drivebys aren't doing you any good.
