    well i went by today and saw he had his cobra with him today and asked him if he wants to roll. He said lets do it, we hit the higway. We started at about 50-55mph and i went up to 135mph. I have to say this it felt like everytime i shifted he would hit his peak and slightly pull or keep up and then when i would hit my peak i would pull decent, just seemed like i was shifting more then he was. Either way i was suprised i was able to pull ahead by 2 1/2-3 cars by 135mph but as soon as i went into 5th it felt like i wasnt pulling at all or was hardly pulling. I think if i was to start off in 4th gear it wouldve been worse but then again i shifted pretty quick from 3rd to 4th to were it seemed like he didnt. Shouldve asked him what gear he started in 3rd or 4th. When i went into 5th my clutch felt sloppy or softened up alot wasnt sure just from being nervous i was riding the clutch too much or not but im more then happy with the win. He told me if his cousin was driving it wouldve been a much closer race since his cousin had a 03 cobra and new how to drive really well.

    A win is still a win Congrats, I told you that you could do it Now, mod that bitch even more in case he starts modding. Modding a Termi is extremely easy at first and yields high gains. Congrats again

    no doubt i was nervous as hell, the guy was talking a little smack saying how he doesnt like camaro's at 1st. I told him the people who say that are the people who never test drove one. I remember my 1st test drive in a 1998 red vert Z. When i hit the gas it downshifted to 2nd or 1st gear dont know which and it snapped my head back and took off, how responsive, quick to rev and good top end it had. I loved the car since then and have owned 5 camaro's. I wish i wouldve been able to keep my last Z but im still happy with what i got now.

Either way, each car is different and driver also. Just practice slamming the gears and hope for the best. It will be a good race. My prediction is LS1 FTW this time!
    In all my time, I've never seen a rustang with IRS? Unless it was totally custom. They Live as we are.

You can have a car that dynos 500rwhp that runs 14.0 in the 1/4. Cobras are damn nice cars but people put them way too high up on a pedistal LS1 FTW, no replacement for displacement.
    Depends on which pedestal you is talking about. Mucsle car? They deserve a damn high place. Pulley, tune, street legal exhaust and it will run 11.30's with an aveage driver on the stock IRS. Forged internals that will take a beating all day and ask for more. I hate to break it to ya but adding a blower IS adding displacement. The stock Eaton M112 pushes 112 CI's along with the 281 makes it 393 CI's of displacement.

    But, Ford listened with 5.4. Eaton GT500's are running low 10's with bolt-ons. The KR rated at 540 HP is dynoing 540 at the tire. The 2010 is rated at 540. Curious to see what it makes at the tire.
