I'm prepping for my demise. Saturday night me and a buddy from work are going to race. He's bringing his 97 Cobra and I'll be in my good 'ol N/A. It's gonna be a blast. I wanna see how well (if at all) I can hang with him, plus it's experience...who knows, maybe his motor will blow up and I can beat his ass fair and square!:D

I definately not expecting to be anywhere near him at the end. Hell, I'll be satisfied if I can still see his tail lights!

There's nothing to do around here, and it's just for fun.

Never under estimate your car. He will probably win but he will not kill you. (Cobras are not that fast)

:confused:

2001 SVT Mustang Cobra, 320 hp, 317 lb-ft torque. 0-60 mph in 5.4 sec, 1/4 mile in 13.8 sec @ 102 mph, 150 mph top speed...

Sounds fast to me.

I think the base 3000GT runs about 8 seconds 0-60 and 16+ in the quarter…

Well if he's a 5spd and can drive...with his mods he should be a high 14 to low 15 sec 1/4 mile. Either way he's not gonna win but on the other hand it shouldn't be a slaughtering.

BUt it's not a 2001 he's racing... it's a '97 and those were pretty slow compared to the new ones.

I don't have the actual stats but if I remember right, the '97s did around 14.5s?

So if our guy runs 15, that's only about 4-5 car lengths, not a slaughter at all...

AND REMEMBER the Cobra has a BIG V-8... our guy has only a little 6 cyl.

Since you race the car and driver, you always have a chance he'll totally blow his launch and you could get enough jump on him to take home a victory.

i hung with a 96 cobra until ~120 mph when he steadily pulled away, this was from a 70mph roll. i have yet to beat one at the track tho, i've seen 'em regularly pull low 14's if not lower. the new one would tear 99% of na a new asshole and i haven't seen that other 1% :D safe travels, good racing n good luck, come back with a good story to tell!

Never race a Cobra before, so I don't know how fast they are. Hopefully I'll get my chance.

how can you say that a 3k will do 0-60 in 8 seconds? my automatic altima will do it in 6.9-7.3. you are fucking retarded. a base with the dohc 222hp should get around 5.9 if you can really drive and have a few mods to about 6.9 if you are an ok driver and have no mods. 8 seconds my ass. mustangs suck shit period. fuck ford!!!

I have raced a '98 Mustang Cobra back when I was stock. I took him off the line and might have BARELY pulled on him as we raced (we shut it down at around the 1/8th of a mile). He had intake, exhaust, 4.10 gears, and a short throw shifter. They are quick cars, don't let them fewl you... (He now has a 14psi supercharger on that 'stang...)

Oh well, at least you are racing for fun.

Found out more about his car today...he put in a chip, but the car also has been flood damaged. He said a lot of water got under the hood and it needs a rebuild. We both have standards and I'm pretty good at taking off, I dunno about him. Oh well, not all I can do is drive around and burn off all this excess gas :)
