Havent raced any on the track...LOL
but I do race alot of stock Z06's that usually come over after the race wondering how they got beat by a 4000lb Mustang :lmao:

Next year with the Nitrous I should be able to hit a 11.3 or lower..thats the goal

Thanks for the compliments guys...it's away for the winter...and I already miss driving it...lol

Nice car. Someone at my office has a yellow vert with a licence plate that says "HISSSSS".
Turns out it is a chick who owns it... and she's pretty hot. :unsure:

Do it for me.
Well, the Cobra's have IRS, so handling isn't bad...with a few tweaks, they can eat up the corners.

Nice ride, Biz, but I think we need some vids! Or at least some exhaust clips...I never recorded mine with the H-pipes and Magnaflows, and now I wish I had the sound to comfort me in displacement-hating Britain.

Actually the Cobra IRS isn't very good and the solid axle actually handles better, that's the reason the Cobra R is a solid axle.

I will disagree...I had my 96 GT (solid axel) on the road course at Shannonville and I had my 99 Cobra on the same track (IRS). Both has simular HP (GT 296/Cobra 301) and the Cobra destroyed the GT on the track.

This is my 7th Mustang, 2 with IRS and 5 without...I would take the IRS anyday of the week instead of a solid axle...
Fords problem with the solid axle is wheel hop under extreme launches...which can be fixed with aluminum IRS bushings.
and the ride is 10X better.
