    I can trap 98 mph in the 1/8 mile spinning everywhere in 1st gear with turrible 60' times, and without Torco. It's a 100+ mph 1/8 mile car if I would ever get the suspension able to dig. I posted a video in my previous post.

    same problem with my fox. no intention on really running my cobra i just drive it daily stole it from a dealer cause it needed a clutch. i think i was at about 94 in the 8th when i ran on street tires. i went to watch a buddy my friends ended up nagging enough to make me take it down once and what do i get ? a blown head gasket lol. that was about 6 months ago tho and getting the shorty headers off woke it up quite a bit

    for whatever reason it seems like any cobra any rear has a fit getting down the track well off the line. My old man has an 07 just reg gt and his gets crazy wheel hop. can't imagine a shelbys problem

    I don't know what the conversion is, but I can tell you that others with my setup with proper setup suspensions hit 130ish, so that's the kind of car you would be racing on the streets when the launch factor is taken out of it.

    No he's more of a 130 if he doesn't spin I was at 120ish before I let out. Blew the head gasket half track drive it like it's stolen. Your mach should trap 115ish give or take. Isn't slow at all and probably drives a whole lot nicer then my fox lol. Two diff worlds as is a 6 speed supercharged car off track

    I trapped almost 98mph in the 1.8th and 121 in the 1/4 with my old engine and pulley setup(2.93/4lb). It went 7.20's in the 1/8th.


    On the new engine and pulley combo(2.93/6lb.) it should go some 6.90-7.10's.

    This is all full weight on DR's. If Id go slicks and skinnies and weight reduction it'll really get nasty. 6.50-6.80's should be doable. I like to run full weight though. As I drive it everyday is how I run it.


    Just throwing some Terminator info in the mix. LOL

    B&L's are usually worth a few tenths. Sometimes more depending on the car. power, weight, suspension setup etc...


    You got to think what all they do for you. Less weight, less friction on the skinnies, optimal traction with the slicks.

    That's true I've never run or had anything other then welds on my fox I have 15x7 on the front , planning to use m/t et with the 15x10s out back . I wonder if skinnies would be worth it for me
