    Well, I thought I had a fast car.

    This is my first thread in here.... To bad it's a death.

    Anyway, was driving home last night on a 4 way and an 03/04 Cobra flies by me. I see him hit the brakes and slow down. So he starts pacing me and he has a passenger (which I assume is his girlfriend), I also see some gauges on his A-pillar. He paced me for about 30 seconds, but he wouldn't look over at me... I kept waiting... and waiting.. nothing. So, I downshift to 2nd, and blip the throttle. He does the same thing... BUT HE STILL WON"T LOOK OVER AT ME..!! WTF. Anyway, I just hammer it down, I hear him do it and he just creeps by me.

    I'm thinking to myself. "Huh, I guess all those posts about Termy's not being that fast stock have some truth to them." I mean, he was only creeping by and had about 1 car length on me when I let up.

    So we go again, from about 40..... Yeah, the SOB must have been sandbagging the previous race; because this time he pulled on me like I was flooring an escort in fifth gear. I mean, all I heard was the whine, saw the rear of his car squat, and he was GONE... All I have to say is WOW!! It's totally different when you actually experience a race against one of those things.



    I have an '02 Maro - pretty much bone stock except for the SLP's and the intake.

    Nice death. No shame at all, after some serious mods, go have some more fun. They do run hard though, despite what some guys post here. He must have left it in 3rd the first race then dropped to 2nd on the next.

    I had a huge smile on my face when I got beat by 2 cars by a modded C6Z06 from 25-120.

    Thats because we ALL want a C6 Z06. Not everbody wants a Cobra or Ws6.

    I have an '02 Maro - pretty much bone stock except for the SLP's and the intake.
    What the other guy did is alot of fun. I do it alot to GT Stangs. I see what gear I can be in a still win the race.

    For example a 94-95ish GT I raced about a week ago. I left my car in 4th gear and we went from 40 or so mph. I didnt have to shift for the whole race. Once we got close to triple digits,I pulled alot, but he had me a by a little up untill 70 or so. Then I re raced him, because he was ready for another close race. But I punched it from 2nd and didnt look back. I imagine the guy was a little upset.

    It is alot of fun, except sometimes you get surprised and a car is faster than you think. But you just have to downshift quickly and catch up. I dont try it on LS1 cars though.

    I was gonna say, I'll race you from a 40 roll while you're in 4th for money.
