    500 miles, 2 tracks, 10 passes, we made it back. Only failure was a couple of blown shocks which caused a wicked bounce going down the track. It was a great time and I’d do it again. I wish I took more pictures but it was a fast paced event.

    Day 1 I went 11.22. It was having traction issues all weekend due to the bad shocks. Was hoping to crack a 10, always next year.

    Awesome looking CO Cobra. Stance looks great, and nice "simple" mods. If I owned a stock Terminator, your list of mods is probably be close to my own list.

    How long have you owned it?

    Made a Target run today, smiled the whole way until the sun came out. Cobra was dusty AF, washed her as soon as I got home so Im not embarrased on my wally world run for 5w30 and 22lr tomorrow.

    Does that brace seem to cause it to put pressure on your blower coolant overflow line? It seems to on my car. On the bottom where the hose goes down. The edge of the brace isn’t sharp so it shouldn’t cut the line, but it definitely puts some pressure on it which may wear it over time. I don’t have any problems with the belt slipping or tension so I may take it off and see if that stays the same to eliminate any problem w that hose wearing out prematurely

    You need a flex fuel badge. I have one on my car on the left under the SVT. I had a person once ask me btw when filling up with E85 “that runs on diesel”?

    I had one on mine. Didn't last long. I didn't like the way it looked.

    The second time I put E85 in it a guy came up after I pulled up and asked if I was putting ethanol in it. When I said yes he got all excited. Said something about it being awesome that I'm running it on the shine.

    Finally replaced my steering rack bushings with some Prothane ones. Ordered the black but got the red, said screw it and put them in anyways. Going on a test drive at lunch.

    Interested in the results. Considering swapping mine out over winter. Looking at tightening up the front end a bit. Nowadays with so much having gone to electric steering, makes the Cobra feel loosey goosey.

    Ive had a set of those almost as long as Ive had my Terminator. On my Cobra the tubes were welded to the stock K-member, didnt feel like messing with the welds so I rocked the rubber bushings ever since. Anyone wanna buy a solid rack bushing kit lol.
