    Wink cobra

    dont even know if this is worth posting. had a little "run" w/a 96-98 cobra from about 30mph to around 50-55mph. comin home last night pulled up behind a cobra(looked/sounded good) just as stop light turned green. heard him revving thinking he was hot shit. so after i turn i get into outside lane, im at about 25 or so mph w/his door at my front fender. i heard him downshift and get on it so i punched it and instantly caught and put half a car on him. by around 50-55mph i had a car and a half oh him before i had to shut down for a car in front of me.

    Yeah i'd say it's worth posting. If he stayed within 1.5 cars (assuming your LS1 is modded) he must have had bolt-ons!!

    those cobras are pretty slow. not even as quick as an s197 which is still slow.

    I know your car sounds good then. With no cats too? I love me some Super series 40's.

    You raced from 30mph and ended at 55? Isn't that about a blip of the throttle in second gear?

    That's pretty much all that is needed for a bolt-on '96-'98 Cobra anyway. It's not like he was actually going to catch him on the top end.

    Well, it's not unusual for an LS1 to win or lose to a stang. In fact, it's really common that they lose when it's my stang , but I digress. What I was referring to had to do with a similar thread that N20LT4 and I participated in a couple of weeks ago.

    I almost care. If you send some beer to me over here in Iraq, I'd care a lot more, then... It's against regs here and I haven't been able to drink for a while.
