    03-04 Cobra Demand

    I must say even with the poor balance on these cars, you are right, you can compete with some pretty expensive sport cars in HPDE 3/4. I have very basic chassis mods and like you said, decent tires and track pads work fine for competiveness. I do have some engine and IAT2 temp concerns when...

    03-04 Cobra Demand

    Pertinent thread - have been doing a lot of thinking selling and getting a track car. I have had my '03 for over 8 years. I started running it it HPDE back in '14, maybe 7 events total so far - making small mods like sub-frame connectors and H&R race springs to help with handling. Not sure how...

    I need advice on Enkei RPF1's over 13" Brembo's for Open Track Racing.

    I have the same rubbing issue on the drivers front hitting the fender inner liner, even messed up a harness that is in the area. I have H&R race springs, wih X2 ball joints, she sits low - I was thinking about a spring rubber. Did you ever solve your rubbing issue?

    Terminator in Nurburgring?

    I have ran mine 3 times at Sebring and once at Daytona. The second time at Sebring I had VMP actually de-tune it backing down the timing and adding some fuel losing about 7 HP. Even with that mod I could only run hard for about 2-3 laps at Sebring then had to wait for the IAT2 to get down to...

    Vacuum Leak or IAC issue?

    I had this issue- idle would go from 700 - 1000 RPMs, worse when A/C is on. Replace the IAC, fixed that issue but now when I first crank it up the idle jumps to 1800 RPM for about 3 seconds then comes down to 900 RPM. I am hoping it is just due to the computer learning the new IAC.

    Sebring NASA March 2014 Vid

    Wish I could make it to the June NASA event... Looking at some previous video will have to do for now. In this clip, my instructor suggested that I take my buddy who was here for his 1st HPDE event and show him the track. Made my best attempt to show him the proper lines...
