when I ran the 1/4 against the 550rwhp cobra I ran a 12.7, it was my first run bla bla bla!!! I ran 11.97 a few years later with DRs. actually the cobra I ran did good considering stock tires, Im the one who needed tires, I spun a whole lot. when we raced on top end like I said he gets me from 40 50 60mph rolls, from 70mph on we are dead even, none pull from each other, actually he ran his brother's 911 turbo (not stock) on top end and they are dead even too, after that I raced the 911 TT from 70mph over 5 times and every time we were dead even as well, actaully I got him one time because he was in the wrong gear and he got me one of the times because I forgot my TC on and when I powershifted to 4th it killed the motor :mah: .TXTERMINATOR said:COUTO1981 if you run 11.97 or 12.7 you will get beat from a stop or 1st gear roll to the top of my fourth gear. Of course that is based on quarter mile runs. If you look up my previous post I've raced an 11.98 SS wit heads / cam and beat him by at least four cars maybe more. The Cobra you raced needs tires bad.

I bought a new 04' Z06 and have never regretted once. The Z06 is the best machine around for the Road Course or the drag strip. :z:
I'm game....TXTERMINATOR said:I’ve killed many bolt on / modded z06's. The last one was a 2 weekends ago at the local target meet. A red MTI 02 -04 z06 with all the bolt on parts plus heads, cam, SC with drag tires. He lost 3 out of 4, you have to put the power down.
I had him by at least 4 cars form a 1st gear 30mph go on three & he was not gaining. 2nd race from a dig even worse, the third from roll as the first he missed third and the forth he was able to pull 1 1/2 on my heat soaked stock heat exchanger, oh well.
I make 460 & 468 at the back with just a 3.1 pulley, cb, offroad, cai & tune. If the other Cobra has not been tuned & stills has his cats, he's probably down 30 hp and 50 tq at the wheels. When my pulley went on the programmer was back ordered, I was 15 hp and 50 tq off my current numbers. I wouldn't want to run hard with out the a/f ratio checked on the dyno.
I am game if any one would like to see what a stock or bolt on z06 would fair against my 460 rwhp full weight Cobra. :thumb:
sambandit said:I am not here to say one car is better than the other...blah,blah,blah, but something is seriously wrong if a 450 hp Cobra cant pull on a stock Z06. I am at 500+ hp and run 11.8 @ 116 or so here at a mile high. A guy I know just got a Z06, with a couple mods, and put a 75 shot on it. This guy knows how to drive too, and the best he could muster is a 13.2 @ 111. He had a bad 60ft so that reflects in the ET a little, but look at the MPH. Not even close to 116, thats for sure, and that's with a 75 shot. 2 cars trapping 5 mph differently is going to be pretty ugly on the street from a roll. Stock Z06s run 13.8-14.2 up here BTW...

I dont care were its at, I'll take any 02-04 Z06, any time, any weather, any place and run at least 116mph bone stock.and Im not the best vette driver either, I ran mine in summer weather at 117mph as well with 200miles on the odometer :jammin:
Sure beavis. You go run a 116 @ 5k feet.
You do realize you're down 15-20% on power right? At that altitude my car runs with a stock 03 cobra, where down low I should have left him.
Sorry to side with the cobra guys here, but you're making an ass of yourself.
Actually Luis, there is some basis behind some of these Cobra claims. The reason why a car might get beaten at an 'altitude' track and not at a 'sea level' track is, of course, air density. Air density (altitude) will effect N/A cars far more severely that F/I cars. Since the Cobra is 'factory blown' (at least the newer models), it is quite possible that what is being said in the above posts is correct. Sambandit claims to have over 500rwhp, therefore you can pretty much figure that he has at least a stock blower (Eaton), if not an upgrade to a better one (KB, perhaps).COUTO1981 said:So!! you are saying that around there you run with the cobras but around here you would leave them, so cobras dont get effected by the 5k feet, just Z06s right? who's making a a$$ of himself me or you? Damn both you clowns came from the same place :rofl:
You obviously haven't a clue about what it is like to run at 8000ft DA. Bring that bad boy up here and I'll buy you a beer if you bust into the 13s.COUTO1981 said:well let me tell you, conversations so far have been disputable, but yours is by far the dumbest thing I ever heard, are you joking :-? a z06 runs 13s or 14s :-?

IF your 500+ hp cobra ran 11.8 @116 then my car bone stock will kill you from a 70mph roll, your mph was most likely accumated mostly before the 1/8 when compared to a stock Z06, but who knows, by those stories you tell, It all seems like lies so why argue with fictional data :-?
BTW, noone here ever agreed that a stock Z06 couldnt take a slighty modified cobra from a 70mph roll ect, even the cobra guys admited, its how much modified the cobra is that is argumental, I said for instance I can keep up with a 500rwhp cobra from 70mph, and Im sticking to it, I just wish there was a open and safe track to prove this point, as far as your numbers, forget about them, you're as right as much as your cobra is a chevy :-?
Didn't say that SC cars aren't effected by DA, padner!sambandit said:For those of you that believe SC cars aren't effected as much by elevation as NA cars are sadly mistaken as well.
