2005 GtO vs 2004 Cobra SVT

I got run down buy a cobra yesterday the guy has been wanting to run. I am the new car around town right now. We took off from 1st rolling and went through 3rd before traffic forced us to let off. I was worried through first and part of second( wheel spin im sure) but by third I had about half a car. We are going to run again on a more private road soon. I will let yall know how that turns out. Neither car is stock both probably around 500hp

What are your mods?Stock for stock the Cobra wins all day long unless he's a poor driver.

I ran across one today,had term8ter on it's plate.........I didn't get a chance to run him.Even though I'd know I'd lose I still want to have a go at one.

In a month or 2 the playing field will be a bit more even.

I have a compcam 598/612, headers, offroad mid pipe, maganaflows, volant CAI, hurst shirter, two stage cold fusion set up. Cobra has pulleys, full exhaust, CAI, and nitrous. Run was without nitrous on either car. My tank is leaking so I got to get new valve.

Rematch

It turned out that I know the guy so we are definitely going to run. He wants to install a new clutch and I am fixing the nitrous and getting something stickier for the rears. I will post the outcome

this would be a great race. Would come down to driver reaction if power numbers are close

experience

I have to admit he is a better driver than I am right now. That will probably be what will bite me. I havent had a car like this in 8 years and no manual tranny in about 3.

Have any of you ever raced on of these cars they sound awsome. It really sounded like it was going to suck the door off my car that supercharger sound wild

One of my best friends had an 04 Terminator as well dynoed at 458hp at the wheels with 468 torque. That sounded very cool with straight pipes connected to 3 inch Flowmaster Delta Force mufflers and no cats. I never raced him when I first got my car cause it was completely stock and wouldn't have put up a race. I did drive it and it was quick. Charger sounds cool once it starts to kick in

I don't know if Patisi is still a member here, but he had an 03/04 Cobra and and 05 GTO. He would race with his brother driving one and him driving the other. Then they would switch off. Everytime it was the same outcome the GTO won.

I ran several stock, and stock being the key word, Cobras with my GTO. I think it was 2 wins for the GTO and one for the Cobra.

Cobras are definately cars to be taken seriously. For less than a grand they run low 12's. From a roll they are even more difficult to beat unless it's a hot day. They hate heat even more than the LS2.
