If those are the times then nikivee will have the Cobra beat.DSG03 said:Having owned and raced a 01 cobra. With less then 500 miles on car. Car had a [email protected] air cleaner, half a tank of gas, and stock tire and pressure. I did a total of 3 passes with car. Slowest time was a 13.7, fastest time was a 13.54 @105.54. 60' times ranged from 2.18-2.22.
If you can run those times with a new goat, then its drivers race.
Definetly not a slouch.
Last year mystic cobra was 1996. Not avaible in 99-01 cobra.
96 are slower then 01 cobra.
Like I said its a drivers race. Not sure what his other time slips were that day.AmesGTO said:If those are the times then nikivee will have the Cobra beat.
He must've had it repainted with that BASF chameleon paint, because it wasn't offered as a factory option in 99 or 01. But the outcome is pretty much what could be expected I would think.nikivee said:I haven't posted this until now because it really was no big deal. A few weeks ago while I was cruising around in my 04 GTO, I notice up ahead a Mustang with the plates MYSTIC on them. Chance had it that he was coming up to a red light. I eased up on his right as the light turned red. I'm no an expert on Mustangs, but it was that chameleon color and had the cobra emblem on the side. It appeared to me to be a 1999 Cobra, maybe 01? Anyways, the driver was around my age. He had his wife with him. As we're sitting at the light he yells over, "How do you like the new GTO". I responded that it's a great car. He says, "That's a nice car, what's it have". I told him a 350HP LS1. He says, "Nice".
Now as we're sitting there waiting for the light to turn green, I knew something was going to happen, but didn't know what. When the light turned green we both leave the light normally but briskly. As soon as I shift into second he slams the throttle and I do the same. I immediatley pulled ahead by car length and a half, but traffic up ahead prevented anymore, so we both eased off. He got behind me after that. At the next light I turned right and he went straight. We both gave each other the thumbs up sign and went our way.
