    99 T/A vs. 03 Cobra - Round III

    alright, I raced my friends T/A once again.

    Round 1 went to him when I was bone stock vs his T/A. We went from 40-120 I lost by 1/2 car. His mods were lid, k&n, longtubes, custom cam, o/r y pipe, corsa catback, pulley, injectors and a tune. His car at the time had a really dirty air filter and he kept his cutout closed.

    Round 2 went to me by about 1.5 cars, same speeds. This time I had a pulley, o/r x, magnaflow catback, fipk and a tune. He had the same mods but with his cutout open and clean air filter.

    Round 3 was tonight. He added 4.10 gears and 315's in the back. (BTW, my Vredestein 315's on my car look more like 300's in comparaison to his BFG kd's). This time we took witnesses with us. My twin brother went in his T/A (140 lbs.) and I took my other friend (180 lbs). We both had completely full tanks of gas this time as well. We ran from about 30-35 mph in second (I gave him the pick in speed/rpm to start). We went on 3 honks and through second we were dead even until he shifted and I gained about 1/2 car as I wound out second. The shift to third cost me almost 1/4 car but then inched out to about 3/4 car then he shifted to 4th and fell back to about 1 car back and was slowly falling back. I went to 4th and held to about 125 where I had about 1 1/2 cars on him and was slowly walking.

    It was a very good run, we're going to lining up at the track on saturday at sacramento. Its Grudge Night, I have a feelin he's gonna take me (based on the launch). But it should be close!

    Nice runs. Sounds like both cars are really quick.

    Nothing better than a close run like that. Try to get a vid at the track!

    Been to Sacramento Raceway many times. About the only track up there left I think. I always loved it there, about 50 feet above sea level and good air when night falls.

    Wednesday night drags at Sac Raceway sucks IMO. Virtually no track prep whatsoever. It cause me to spend the xtra dough and go on test-n-tune nights.
