    I have taken an 03 Cobra from a stop. From what I hear on here it's hard to do from a roll. Let us know how you do

    I see that you're 16! This is a way cool car for a 16 yr old, how did you come about it? I know it's easy to go fast in these things but take it easy...

    SLP Loud Mouth Cat Back
    LS1 Lid
    K&N
    Free Air Mods
    Granetteli MAF
    SLP Smooth Bellows
    Royal Purple (all around)
    Eibach Sport Springs
    Bilstein Shocks & Struts.

    I feel that the suspension upgrades really help button down the car and help me get a better launch over stock! I also have some track time under my belt so that helps too.

    Honestly I didn't notice any difference but I know I will after I complete my mod list. I've seen some guy's complain about this MAF on this site (throwing codes) haven't had any problems with mine though.

    I have taken an 03 Cobra before and Im in an 00 SS. As far as the Saleen, it would depend on which one.

    As far as I know, there are 3 different S281's. The base would be a good run vs the SS, BUT the other two (which are both supercharged) should be able to walk away pretty good. Dont know though, I have yet to meet anyone with a Saleen that went full boat on the car. Most of the people that seem to get the Saleen (at least in my area) only get the base.

    I think its the base saleen.
    I always wondered how fast the 05 saleens are. Never got the chance to find out. I used to tease my girlfriends neighbor (who owns a 05 saleen) He never wanted to go at it with my Lt1 Z.The guy would just laugh at me(F#G). I went at it with a 02 Saleen once though. It took alot of work to convince him, but when it happened I got him on 1st,2nd and as I was shifting on to 3rd the guy gave up and complained about how his car was worth more than mine and he didn't want to take the chance of wrecking it(Bull).
    Thanks! I'll let you know what happens.

    Sweet ride. Little confused though! The pics have a date on them of 06/02/05 but there's snow every where, how far up north do you live?? So what are you planning on doing to this thing?
