Hey SI....guess what I saw


#1

We went to the drag strip tonight and I saw a beautiful black shiny cobra get SMOKED by a Civic! Gotta give props to that car…it was bad ass!


#2

haha sweet. was it like mine or what? you know what was done to it?


#3

Nah, I tried to find it afterwards to ask…but it did sound like it was turbo, or supercharged…at least. I think it ran an 11.2 if I’m not mistaken. My hubby did better in his 02 GT than that cobra though…he hit 14.9. (Hubby hit a 14.4 in his 02).


#4

damn… 11.2. I wish I knew who that was. mad props to him. Good job to your husband too, good run.


#5

14.9 in a Cobra? You sure it wasn’t a GT with Cobra emblems?

Man that must have been a horrible driver or somebody’s girlfriend. :wtf


#6

I was looking at the fog lights and style of it…not the emblems…maybe it wasnt the “real” driver??? Maybe he let his wife drive it??? LoL!!!


#7

Did they race down at edgewater? I’m not too far from there actually.

Anyways, maybe it was a fobra.


#8

You made SI’s day Bear. :lol


#9

Yeah…down at Edgewater. There were some mean ass cars down there. Hell there was a souped up Cavalier even! :wtf YES a freaking Cavalier!!! I think it did low 15s!! :rofl

SI…glad I made your day…it was sweet!! :smiley:

#11

Well, I’m and LS1’er, and I would LOVE to be running 11 point ANYTHING. LOL


#12

Deffinetly not a good driver or he wasnt even trying, ive heard 03-04 cobras going 11.9 stock, with jus a k&n an drag radials.

At any rate an 11.2 in a civic is jus sick :rock , lotsa money to get there tho… :banana

You guys are making assumptions that it was an 03-04.

It could have been a 99 or 01, in which case 14.9s aren’t out of the realm of possibility with a bad driver or horrible track conditions.

True True, but still a 01 stock could run better that 14.9… :blah

My husband also agrees that it must have been a '99 or '01 Cobra…they’re not all that!


#17

i heard from a buddy of mine who is somewhat on top of mustang info, or so i gather, that there was a dyno problem for information about the 99 cobra, and that the gt was better (:D), but seriously, ford musta screwed up the cobra for 99… which might have set up the [inclination that the cobras arent that good for the money you put out for one???] reason why they aint making any cobras RIGHT now, maybe for 2k6/2k7, but not now.

hmm… just like the camaros… i read somewhere that gm was “looking for a better chassis” for the next camaro, and then they came back with a “we didnt say that” statement thing…

btw ^^^ has a '68 stang… its nice, sounds great, but mine looks better

and how does the 2k5 mustangs have a “retro styling” styling look to them?? :dunno ? all i can think of is the 4 lights up front… even the body in the late 60s/early 70s was “split-level” in terms of front-back…

Re: RE: Hey SI…guess what I saw

There was a problem. People were dynoing WAY less than the 15% drivetrain loss a 305 hp RWD V8 should have been making. Ford admitted there was a problem and went about fixing the 99 Cobras.

That’s why there isn’t a 2000 Cobra, except for the rare R. All the 01 Cobras were problem free, and then they didn’t make a Cobra for 2002 (well they made them, they just exported them).
