I finally got to run my friends 96 Cobra he is stock with 14,000 miles except for a cold air intake, I have the mods in my sig. Heres how it went.
Him Me
60' 2.9 2.179
1/4 21.36 14.537
MPH 54 95


60' 2.518 2.197
1/4 14.484 14.318
MPH 100.4 96.46


60' 2.402 2.42
1/4 14.324 14.513
MPH 100.6 96.7


60' 2.48 2.297
1/4 14.375 14.581
MPH 100.8 96


60' 2.8 2.25
1/4 20.8 14.43
MPH 56 95.8

I am still working out the traction issue with the drag radials, I think my traction lok is going, the mid track rush of the 4.6 DOHC is sickening, all of a sudden he is just pulling hard as hell, Would a set a 3.73's do the trick? I still have the low E.T of the two of us by .006 :evil: I'm planning on Shorties, H-pipe, Cat-back, 65mm throttle body andC and L 73mm MAF before i race him again in Novmber. cam goes in with new valve springs and lifters over the winter as well as an EEC tuner and gears. Will the intake and Exhaust mods as well as 14* timing be enough to beat him consistantly for the rest of the season though?

Am I reading that right? Is it saying that he got 2 runs in the 20s??
If you dont have gears, that would probably help. It sure as hell would help him!

Dude you better be darn glad your friend doesnt know how to drive!!! His best 60' (and run)was a 2.4 and that run he ran a 14.32 typically you will hear that 1 tenth in the 60' will equal 2 tenths at the end of the track!! So lets be lenient and give him 1.5 tenths at the end of the track for every tenth in the 60'. A decent 60'er on street tires is 2.1 - 2.0 range which you were pulled that off a couple of times so lets say he gets a 2.1 that is 3 tenths better then his best 60'er so 3 x 1.5 is 4.5 tenths take that off of his best time of 14.32 and that = 13.87!! That mad mid track rush you are talking about is traction!!! More than likely he is spinning like crazy off the line and probably alot through second then when it catches he starts flying!!! 3.73's would help but if he learns to drive even with 3.73's youll be having a hard time keeping up!!! Remember to we were being lenient about the gains too if he does learn how to drive!!

No the DOHC motor just has a mad rush down the track it wasn't that he finally hooked up. I raced a 99 Cobra with all the fix done to it. He had a 2.1 60' and i had about a 2.2 60' and i blew right by him and put 1 1/2 length on him but after mid track he just reeled me right in a past me up and ran a 13.8.

He is getting better with each run... By looking at the 60' times, both of you had traction issues. When he learns how to drive, he will own you. You even had better 60' times and he won. 3.73 gears will help.

well here we are with two crappy launched and he beat me by less then .2 of a second so I doubt he would really kill me if he learned how to drive because once I get my Timing set at 14* and my T-lok fixed I will be putting down 1.9xx 60' I should be running 13.9 - 14.1 range hopefully.
