Ok so I have been trying to research on how the cobra can beat the evo 8. I know alot about the evos because I owned a lancer and i love the car but I bought an 01 cobra becuase it was way cheaper than the evo 8. "retards buying them up for alot of money"
Horsepower - 271 to the wheels, 320 at the crank 15% loss in drivetrain
weight - 3560
03 Evo 8
Horsepower - 240 at the wheels, 271 at the crank 15% Loss in drivetrain
Weight - 3241
Horsepower for the cobra is great, there is a 319lb difference in the weight.
I read online the suspension alone can reduce the weight up to 150lbs, Now I need to figure out what else you can do to remove another 150 to be at the same weight as the evo 8. Yes the evo can get down to 2700 pounds with a complete removal of all equipment but thats not common if your on the highway unless your unlucky.
If I can remove 320 pounds of weight of my cobra and spend about 7k, as I would an evo 8. I would get more out of the cobra than I would with the evo and no other car would be able to dominate it.
thats not counting me putting a procharger on it as well, so help me think of ways to improve my car, because I was thinking about selling it and getting the evo because I know more about tuning that car and the mods to make it fast. But I will admit my cobra is pretty sexy!

If you are trying to remove weight, take out the spare tire and jack. Also, most 03 Evo's are making closer to 230awhp... Additionally, they fall off in the higher gears. AWHP cars tend to fall off around 90mph from my experience. The main problem between racing the two is how much of an advantage the Evo has from a dig. From a roll, the Cobra should slowly walk it.
