My buddy just traded his '95 Cobra in on a 2004 Cobra vert 6-speed. This car is bone stock with 37,000 mi. My car in my sig. I wanted to go from a dig but we couldn't because of traffic. We ended up doing 2 pulls from 60 to about 110. I started in 4th at about 3200 rpm's. He said he was in 3rd. 3 honks and we both hit it evenly. I was a little below my power band and thought for sure he would pull on me.....but.....he didn't, we were DEAD EVEN. I gained about 2-3 ft. when he shifted but that's it. He didn't pull an inch. 2nd run was exactly the same. I know I can beat him from a dig because I will jump him out of the hole and now I know he can't pull on me. Vids coming soon. :burn:

Good run! Stock they are 12.5-12.8: right where your mods should easily put you (if not faster). Just tell him that "Doing that crappy pully thingy blows your engine up. Don't listen to ANYONE who tries to tell you different!" ;) lol

That outcome sounds about right. I saw a bone stock one dyno at a recent dyno day I went to and he did 362 I think on a dyno jet. I actually don't remember the exact number but it was right around mid 3's. It was a convert too. They are pretty tame when bone stock, but pulley up and watch out!

Good runs... I was gonna say "Why would you be in 4th from 60mph", but I just noticed you had gears

Yea, I coulda probably downshifted to 3rd but I wanted to see just what he had. Next time if we can't go from a dig then we will start at 50 mph and then I'll use 3rd and beat him by 1/2 car ;)

Nice run. Verts are slower than coupes too.

Usually. That convertible had a smaller pulley and long-tubes though, which should be enough to make up for the extra weight. Plus driver differences. Sure the coupe was running a 100 octane tune, but how extreme was that tune? Mod for mod, with equal drivers, a coupe should beat a vert. Except for the rare cases where the vert is lighter than the coupe (the Dodge Viper SRT-10, for example).

Where did he find a stock Termi around here? Looking at your numbers we would have a pretty even match.

Nice run OP. You really should be the faster car with him being a convertible and bone-stock. His car is considerably heavier than yours is and your power levels should be right around the same.

-You sure he isn't BSing? I'm not sure if he even owns a Camaro, let alone has anything done or ever raced a Cobra. :sack:


Good kill OP.. Get some vids man!
