    Stock auto's suck from a roll.....especially w/ 273's...Cobra's are 99% driver cars, theres no way you would have ran past him like that w/ a competant driver from a roll, not saying you couldnt have won but not like that.

    Next is JATO assist!!! Actually, I have had the same experience with S187 Mustangs at the drag strip. They come on strong out of the hole and the Camaro just walks on past them about mid track. Every time that happens the Mustang guy cops a "missed shift" plea, without exception. All his 4.11s did was give him a little extra pop out of the hole, where he alread had an edge, but they will limit his trap speed. My 2000 Z28 is also an A4 with 2.73 gears. My best run was 13.44 @ 107.43 mph. I was looking to upgrade to a series 2 3.45 rear end out of a M6 car but I've been told a 3400 stall would do more for the car's performance than a set of gears.

    Jet Assisted Take Off. It was a technique tried out in the early jet age to get some of the heavier military aircraft off the ground in a short runway situation. Still used on some versions of the C-130 to get heavy loads off the ground more quickly. Kind of a Wiley Coyote (I assume I won't have to explain that reference) solution, like the Acme Rocket pack. Thought it might help the guy's Mustang beat the Cammy.

    Nice kills. Always nice to see the people who talk smack get smacked down. And yeah, I'd do the stall before changing gears, unless you get the M6 3.42 set-up for real cheap. Then, a stall!

    As a current 96 cobra owner looking for a GTO he's NOWHERE near claimed HP/TQ. He's around 280/265 WHP/TQ respectively. I have I/LT/OR-X/E/3.73s tune and suspension and Dyno at 289/279 run 13.5-13.7s. He's not making anything near 350 TQ. These cars require 4.30s to wake them up. Small displacement+high revving V8 requires very steep gears. 4.56s and radials put em in DEEP 13s.

    Just some insight. Good kills

    You have some great traction, eh? What's your 60 ft at the drag strip, 1.7x? Last April I had a 1.98 on my new Potenza RE 760s, and ran a 12.97 @ 108.2. Also, your lower curb weight helps, not like the 3800 lb+ new ''pony'' cars.
