I just enjoy my car, I know what I have under the hood and what I can and cannot beat, why prove it and get a ticket?

I'm not going to encourage you to race because you have your reasons understandably, but i race occasionally. Anyways, my dad has an 08 cobra with 804 hp, 670 at the reaer wheels and sounds like a racecar, seriously, but whenever he has people trying to race him he'll just cruise for a few minutes until he finally gets tired of it and then finally blows their doors off. ferraris, corvettes, all the way down to piece of crap trucks and cars that barely run. People are curious and some are just retarded so my advice to you is just try to ignore them and if it gets the best of you, hopefully you blow their doors off and maybe they'll realize that they are the patheic one without the awesome mustang

just curious where you got your dads 804 hp number from? Just did the math and guessed or did he have the motor built & put on an engine dyno?

Just curious lots of variables in parasitic loss like the 2 piece driveshaft ( which being at 670 Whp guessing its gone? )

I have however had worthy opponents on the road wanna toy around. I'll only bite if I think I'll lose! Hah I usually surprise myself. SRT8's are worthy adversaries but they feel the snake bite. I had a new (looking) Lexus ISF wanna play one time. I literally blew his doors off from a light getting on the highway. They we tried from a highway speed and he ate my car up!!! hahaha Fun times.
OMG I have never seen that... did you guys exchange insurance info?? LOL...
but seriously.. I don't get that at all... but my friend with his red GT gets that a lot... I guess it is because of the color...

+1 multiple times in my gf's car I've revved up at a fast car just to hear it. Some people think everyone thinks they have a fast car and doesn't think that someone might be envious of their car?

you're right there but i dont consider it to be near as bad as all these plastic water bottles that hit the landfill each year. im not a enviromentalist, but the bottle thing is rediculous and has got out of hand. diesels are straight up about showing you what they're putting out of the exhaust, gas trys to hide it, lol....jk

yeah. raw unburned fuel that is about 5 times worse than gas emissions. properly tuned diesels burn fairly clean.

im not in total agreement with that. yea, there are companies like banks that are making strides to accomplish smokeless diesel with big power. but at the end of the day, over 90% of diesels in competition, making big power, are blowing smoke.

I had this happen to me last night, with a Toyota tundra. I guess he thought because he had a catback exhaust that he would would have no problem with the GT.


I don't really do street racing, but this guy and his friend were talking a little too much.

I couldn't help myself, so I let him him have it. By the the time my minimally modded GT had chirped 2nd gear, the truck was gone.

You would think that anyone serious about racing would know the difference between s cheesy cat-back and a wide open o/r racing pipe with good mufflers. All I have is a steeda Cai, summit org pipe and FM 40's and it wasn't even close. I told him at the next light that if Jr wants to race my 2005 Cummins turbo diesel that I would give him another chance. Of course that one has a banks 6 gun with the new interface and might even give the GT a run for it's money. But what is it about these guys in the half-ton tundras thinking they own race cars? It seems pretty stupid, honestly, I have access to a chassis dump (wish I would have had a baseline) but on Sunday the 27th, I had a 272hp reading at the wheels, I don't know if that sounds right it not, but even if it is close, for a 3000 pound car that seems like plenty.

Did have one wrx that dropped the hammer while we were moving around 40 and at least he kept up for a few seconds, but lost him hard on the 11% grade no problem. I can't wait to see what happens when I add the supercharger. I hate street racing, it is stupid, but the temptation of ripping their ego out is just to appealing.

Does 272, with 3,27 gears, a summit hooptie and steeds Cai sound about right? I wish I would have made a stock run just to have a baseline.

So far, I have been challenged by 4 Toyota tundras and the wrx. What is it with these Toyota fan bois and their sumptuous half ton trucks anyways?




half tons anyways?


You would think these guys would be able to tell the difference

well, it probably doesn't help that Toyota claims they use racing technology in all their engines. therefore, they must be fast.

Theyre Ford engineered Cobras. Shelby essentially pays to have his name put on the car. Shelby Supercars Inc has very little to do with the design or manufacturing of the GT500(Cobra). Its a Cobra, not a Shelby.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing
Default

The newer gt500's do have the snake on them...but they also have the 'Shelby' name on them too. Therefore, the proper name is:

Ford Mustang SVT Shelby GT500 Cobra
