I was thinking the same thing. Can anyone speculate about how this car fits in that class?

Nope, oh and its still not fast enough off the showroom floor so no disadvantage anyways. F/S is a no poweradder class period. On to Real Street or Mod Motor for that car.

You are stuck in mod motor, our renegade with the 03. Since the 4V is not allowed in real street. or you could run SS/O or PRO

What class do all the other blown stockers run in?

T-Bird Super Coupe
Pontiac GTP
Buick Regal
Buick Riviera
Some Jaguars
Some Mercedes Benz cars

How about stock turbocharged cars?

i guess if its not fast enough off the showroom floor they might allow it into the class then right?

if the class is factory stock...then wouldnt they have to allow the 03 cobra or else rename the class to something like stock naturally aspirated?

just thoughts to ponder about.....flame on!!! hehehehhe

Ok lets see F/S is a N/A class who cares if it came from the factory with a supercharger. Plus if they did let it in they would make it weigh 3800+lbs. They run many things in F/S that don't come factory on a mustang but they do keep them N/A. Oh yeah you are fighting a loseing battle with the F/S racers.

"Factory Stock" is a name only. Kind of like NHRA "Stock Eliminator" is a name only. It is for n/a cars. No amount of internet racing is going to change that.

Go read the rules and you'll see how a 'factory stock' 5.0 can run 11.80's @ 113 mph on drag radials.

ok....just another question to ponder...
if you do have a 03 cobra, and eliminate the charger to run naturally aspirated would that be allowed? and because the 03 never did come with a n/a intake....would you have to run the stock intake manifolds found on the cobra?
