I'll wait until the '05 actually hits the street & dragstrip before judging the car or calling BS... :nice:
The Cobra 6 spd doesn't have a steeper 1st gear - it has a less aggressive 1st gear actually.
The Cobra 6-spd 1st gear is 2.97 with a 2.07/2nd,...
I tell anyone who asks my RWHP numbers.
This is the most accurate to me, and I can easily back it up when someone cries "BS"... :D
So what's wrong with a little under-rated power?
Getting more hp/tq than you payed for (or expected) is always a good thing... :nice:
I bought mine last year for ~ $23,000.
This included the $3000.00 rebate, X-Plan & dealer discount.
I meant running a 12.5X vs a 12.8X with just a tire/wheel swap compared to my current set-up... :)
I can't wait to run the car with slicks & skinnies - it'd be nice to run a 12.5X with nothing but a tire/wheel swap... :D
Skipped right over the 12.9X's & ran a 12.855 @ 107.39 mph!
Backed that pass up with a 12.857 @ 106.84 & a 12.975 @ 106.65.
It's great to...
Racing on the street is about as close to racing at the strip as an '03 Cobra is to a stock 80's Escort GT... :rlaugh:
Yeah, they're both the...
You could try the Konigs from Maximum Motorsports.
They are a similar style, about the same weight (21/22 lbs) but are ~ $40 cheaper per wheel:...
Yeah, keep dreamin' buddy. :rolleyes:
I have a stack of timeslips (& videos ;) ) that say otherwise... :D
(This question doesn't apply to the '03/'04 Cobra guys, who can buy the AFS 10.5" wheels...)
Has anyone had stock Ford 17 X 8" wheels widened???...
You'll love the solid axle.
When set-up correctly, they ride pretty decent & launch even better.... :nice:
Yeah, I left-out the axle upgrade due to a momentary lapse in judgement. :bang:
I did the 4.30's/31-spline Superiors/31-spline Eaton/T&A cover...
Sticky tires (Nitto or BFG Drag Radials)
Gears (4.10 or 4.30's)
Cold air kit (K&N/MRT/PHP)
in that order... :nice:
4.30's are NOT too much gear for a 4V N/A Cobra.
Drive one with 4.30's & you'll be considering 4.56's... :D
Congrats on your new Mach 1! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine.
Here's my stock '03 Mach 1 dyno & stock w/K&N Air Filter:
How 'bout this one:
310 rwhp Mach 1
Or this one:
300 rwhp Mach 1
I raced my '01 Cobra for a year with the IRS, Nitto Drag...
