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

Sweet find! I never modded my 01 Cobra, so I don't have any advice for ya, other than to drive it a helluva lot more than the guy before you did!!

Maybe slap some silver/mirror inserts into the COBRA on the rear bumper, so the people behind you can more easily see what you're driving

Welcome to MF. Congrats on the purchase, it looks real clean. Since it is still stock I would put on the IRS brace, and sub frame connectors. If you think it is fast and fun now, you should try it with some 4:10 gears. Then lower it.

Is an IRS brace as needed on the 01 as it is on the 03/04? I thought that was maingly a Terminator issue?

You still need to brace it. If you get into it, and have wheel hop it will break.
