    Called in sick the other day and went to T&T. Ran some new bests and I think there might be a little more left in this stock engine 2.3 TVS combo (no nitrous). Hoping for some better air next time out this fall.

    nice job - kind of a non typical time slip- decent 60' good 1/8 mile time - down a bit on the mph in the 1/8th, in my opinion then 32+ on the back in mph , I would of thought for sure that 1/8 mile would of netted atleast a 8.95-8.99 in et instead of a 9.09. keep chipping away it is coming

    Would you mind sharing some in depth info on your suspension setup? You obviously got it figured out lol. I’m running a SRA with a TeamZ grip series 1 kit in the rear I just switched to a 6r80 so I’m hoping to be able to get my 60’ down better with the auto.

    Congratulations on that stellar pass! Must feel really good to have gotten your Cobra dialed in nicely.

    What cams? How much does it weigh and what rear end gear? 152 through a TH400 is moving for sure.

    That’s awesome Joe!!
    I can see an 8 sec time slip right around the corner for ya. You’ve definitely got things dialed in well. Also curious on your suspension set up.
    Congrats man!!

    Thanks guys. I'm running out of time here this fall, weather has turned to shit quick. I can't go to Mod Nats this year either :(

    Suspension is all off the shelf stuff, coilovers front and rear with SA shocks up front and DA in the rear with ARB. Probably going to put a set of DA struts on this winter to help settle the front end down, it's too much wasted movement.
