The whole time we were heading to "mexico" I just knew the Cobra was going to kill me bad. It was a 97 Cobra with a Vortech supercharger super clean car btw. We started at a 20 roll with my car in 2nd a he started pullin.... then my car came alive and pulled by him around 50 and it was just bus lengths after that lmao! Was a great win but that car should have raped mine.

Nice kill I was expecting it to go the other way, no offense to the supra but I was expecting the cobra to get pulled on early on because of loss of traction then pull you hard. But either way nice. Rep that ct

Well done man. Not everyone will thrash every last ounce of performance out of a car, so the win might have been due to the Cobra owner being scared to push his car. By all rights, the LS1 Camaros I've run against up here should have had me pretty easy, but it seems people are too scared to keep the rpm's in the red...

I don't buy this for a second. An S trim on 6lbs with a conservative tune will make ~400rwhp. 100ish wheel over what you're making and you've got a few hundred pounds on him? Forget about it. I pulled a healthy CT car on 14lbs in my bone stock 96 from a 50 roll. Hard. There's really no chance that you could actually beat that car. He should have walked you even if he started in fourth gear. lol

1997 Cobra's are slow slow slow. I don't know where this magical 400 horsepower is coming from. They only made 305 to the crank. That's a long ways from 400. The op never said anything about it being modded heavily.
When my 1991 white package was stock, I used to race cobras and stay neck and neck with them all day. I was on 11 psi with the stock ct26 and never got RAPED by a mustang. I lost a couple but won way more than that. This story isn't too hard to believe for me.

It's got a blower on it Jay. That car should be about a second and at least 5MPH faster than his Supra.

Flame On! lol

The Cobra was a non intercooled B head 32 valve car. Other then a FMU and a 255lph pump it was stock, no tune. As far as my mods go, whats in my sig is all I have done. The Cobra rolls out good but not as good as my car. Ive beat a few bolt on LS1 cars, and kept up with a Pullied/tuned Terminator car on the streets, I think it realy just comes down to the driver alot of the time.

NO FUCKING WAY, a shitty 1st gen 32valve 4.6, with a NON-INTERCOOLED, shitty, baby vortech is trapping 115-120, and the fact you put a 5mph range on a car's setup shows your lack of knowledge. A GOOD friend of mine has a pullied, ported, and tuned terminator with full bolt ons damn near runs 11.49@119, and that car will out dig, and out roll ANY local 400whp car around here. We've taken out a singled 13b fd3s with full standalone, from a roll at that. This guy is legit, if he had a healthy 7m car with decent mods, he could beat a cobra with a power robbing SC (thats shitty from the get-go) and NO tune at all. You guys are acting like he's rolling out on some sort of beast.

There won't be any bitching and whining going on in here. Everyone is entitled to their opinion without being called a liar or a nut swinger. Keep it civil or I will hunt you down and kill you in your sleep. It's your choice.


I personally don't believe that mustang makes 400rwhp. I'm not going to tell Quinn that it can't though, because I'm not a mustang guru. All I know about cobras is they look very tiny in my rear view mirror. The '03 and '04 cobras are pretty strong, but the earlier ones are a joke in my opinion. Carry on.

First off, read better. Second, non intercooled S trim cars have gotten into the 10s, so yeah, they can trap over 115. But, that's not what I was talking about. Third, I'd hope your buddy's port, pulley and tune car can out run a 400whp car, because it should be making at least 500. But then again, it sounds like your buddy's car runs like shit if it's only trapping 119. My cousin's car traps 117 with a 2.76 upper, cat back and can tune. If you think a 5MPH range is bad, you clearly don't know much about those cars. Times and traps are inconsistent to say the least.

Thanks man, and to Quin you must still be a Mustang nut swinger to get all bent outta shape like you are.
I'm not, nor was I ever. I've been in both communities for 5+ years and I have a pretty solid grip on what both cars will and will not do. Gimme some more info on your buddy's setup! I could definitely see you edging him out at 120+ but not from at 50, and not by bus lengths for damn sure! (Okay, maybe after he hit fifth... Fifth gear for a T45 is ridiculous. The car completely falls on it's face, even if you wind fourth all the way out lol)

Vid or it didn't happen!

I was very drunk last night, and my interest has went waaaay down, but i will say his car trapped 121, not 119 lol. Not sure how i confused it. But enjoy being king-bench race.

Perhaps he missed shifted :p.

Other than that it was still a kill.

There's that saying (90% of the time it's the owner, not the car)

And her is were I say I dont fucking care what your brothers, cousins, wifes, gay lovers car runs, ran, or will run.....
I know non-intercooled mod motors have gotten in the tens, I have a friend that works for Muscle Mustang doing editorials and has built, tuned and had a non-intercooled Vortech car deep into the tens.
As for the PULLEY/TUNE ONLY (read this again you mis-quoted me) Cobra, the kid couldnt drive it, so you take a car with half the horsepower agianst a kid that cant drive and you CAN WIN.
Im not arguing over what this car or any other car should have done, Im just saying what it didnt do....win.
I did so thats what counts to me.

I didn't mis-quote you, I was talking to supravillain, which is the only reason I brought that up at all. Unless you're leaving something out, I'm flat out not buying it. Do you live anywhere around Bowling Green? Couple of "slow slow slow" "shitty b-head" cars are interested. I'm sure we could find a few pullied Terms and bolt on LS1 cars too.

Dude why dont you quit the keyboard racing... if you dont believe me thats fine, drop your bullshit and go find your own race. And I will repeat this for the last time if you didnt hear me correctley that car should have rolled out on ME but it didnt.... for whatever reason I still won. Im done with you and your shit so just leave this thread. Plain and simple, find your own race, make a thread about how you won or lost or got it broke off in ya I dont care I'll gladly stay out of it, so GTFO.

Tuned car driven well vs. untuned car driven badly

I don't see what's wrong here.

Also, the SN-95's are slightly lighter than our cars stock.

considering i own a boosted mustang i can say that any mod motor mustangs react wonderful to boost. I have a 2002 on 12 lbs and keep up with my h/c/i ls buddies. If the kid who was driving the cobra knew how to drive at all then it would be a different story. Not saying i dont believe you, but put a good driver in the seat of the cobra and it would of had a different outcome.

Oh I agree it would have been a different race with someone that could drive.

i dont understand full throttle in a straight line is full throttle... Since you make it seem like the Mustang is so fast he could take his sweet time shifting and still win right?

Guy what is your problem.. You're trying to pick race fights online with someone you don't know about a race that you weren't part of. Let it go, you're getting all upset about a story/topic that really doesn't matter. If the mustang lost, it lost. Shitty drivers in the fastest cars can still lose to something posing a threat to it. I've seen beefed up mustangs and such lose to H/E/I civics because the mustang owner was cocky.. dumped the clutch and spun through first and second while the civic was grippin and goin.
