Last time we ran we were pretty evenly matched. I did drag radials, 3.73s, and tuned my stall to lock at 88ish. Made a big difference. Thanks for the runs AndrewClark. Let me know if you want to rematch before you take off man. I'd like to get a couple more 40 rolls with you on a full bottle, not hesistating, etc.
Neither of us expected it to be that dramatic since our runs back in December were neck and neck. I knew traction and getting into my power quicker would edge him out, but not like that. His nitrous was breaking up on a couple of those runs. Also gotta remember he is built for boost, low compression...not ideal for nitrous.
Sounds like it was the guys first time at the track on spray with a stick car, deff not the easiest thing to go out and run some personal bests with. My old gt with a 150 shot Prolly made 375ish at the tires thru the auto and ran a 12.1@111, but that was an auto car on slicks, sure makes the track a lot easier. I bet the cobra has high 11's in the mid teens in it all day once he gets more seat time. Stones been to the track a lot, almost seems like he lives there, hard to compare times between the two cars.
Greddy and Crash pretty much summed it up. Only other thing I would add is that Machs are indeed a bit quicker than the 01 Cobras mod for mod. Andrew's Cobra for sure has 11s in it with enough seat time. He is a street guy, hardly ran at the track, not like I have anyway. So comparing our track times is a lost cause. Plus I'm running a stalled auto on tires that honestly a monkey could pull a decent 60' in, lol. Anyway, Explosive your Mach on a 100 shot will be a fukn beast, trust me. You and I would/should be one hell of a run if it makes you feel any better. I do highly suggest you get a better stall and tune it to cooperate though. When my stall locks down, its like a 50-75 shot, no kidding.
Has it been on a dyno with the spray ? I'd expect faster times than mid 12's, doesn't excite me about a 100 shot on mine lol
Not sure about his RWHP, but he said his RWTQ was 475..

Stalls are where its at. You don't feel them until you get set-up for them though. I wasn't impressed with mine at all until I threw some DRs on and hit the track. It caught me totally off guard when it launched. I'm still not even stalling it up very high cause it will smoke these DRs if I do. The launch accompanied with the much smaller/lighter aftermarket stall (stocker for me was 14", Vigilante is 9"), TQ multiplication it provides (went from 350-360 RWTQ to 400+), and the ability to lock it up top makes for one hell of a mod. Its worth it if you can swing it.
Crash, the car is going to be boosted eventually. Probably a procharger but at the moment I dont have the funds. The nitrous did not come on the car. During the motor build I wanted it to be faster so I opted for n2o since it was a 1/4 of the cost to supercharge it.
