Has any Cobra year come with automatic transmission?
is his car like built to no end and runs it at the track like insane then i could see him swapping it....who was that guy that paid like 100k to put an auto in a lambo for his girl...can you say whipped
Stick isn't always slower. Stock for Stock a 5 speed GT will run a faster 1/4 mi time than a stock Auto GT, but once you cross a certain power level, auto will be faster. If you are over 600rwhp in a 6 speed Cobra, when running down the track, even on slicks, you will spin at launch, and spin a little between each gear change, because of the harsh engagement of the clutch.
With an auto, it is possible that you won't spin at all. The torque converter absorbs much of the drivetrain shock, so the tires won't break loose. And a Stalled automatic can launch so much harder than a stick car. When it comes to 1/4 mile times, its all about the first 60ft, which is most affected by launch.
There is an 03 Terminator in Marietta, GA on e-bay with an auto-trans. The description states:
"It has gone through a full factory conversion to an automatic transmission, they do not come in automatic ever! The conversion was done shortly after purchase as a new vehicle and was done by Ford factory technitions"
