Thanks. I haven't been dragging that long, so I don't really know what a good pass is... Do you drag any? If so, what do you run in the 1/8 or 1/4 and what are your mods?

Thanks

Thanks Shannon... You need to change your signature... Your '01 is no longer under construction... I guess 1 out of 2 ain't bad...:D

Now if that ain't the pot callin' the kettle black ;) ;)

Let's see... I seem to remember one silver 01 Cobra sitting up on ramps awaiting it's return to glory :doubt: :doubt:

But yes, you're right... I need to change the signature. Thanks for hangin' with us homeboys this weekend... we really enjoyed it :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I love to drag. I don't get too much out of it lately as it's had it's share of problems in it's day. I haven't gotten to the track in this car much at all.

My mods are very similar to yours. +.020 bore, 9:1 compression (all forged), lightly cleaned up heads/intake, bbk long tubes, BBk o/r H-pipe, borla side exhaust, 255 lph intank pump, and t-rex inline pump, Vortech supercharger w/aftercooler seeing 6lbs of boost, tremec tko, mccleoud clutch, 42lb injectors, pro-m 95mm maf and an autologic chip. Stock gears.

Have gone 11.98 @117 taking it to 7100 or so in 3rd gear in the quarter on BFG 315/35 drag radials on a very sticky track in decent weather.

Here in NC i've only ran the 1/8 mile and haven't busted out a 7 second pass yet. I've ran a best of 9.014 @ 84mph on street tires in junk weather and a slippery track. But went 8.001 @ 89 mph with a borrowed set of drag radials with a 1.9 60 ft. Just got 2 runs and blew them both. I doubt I could get a 7.60 on drag radials but i'm sure I can on ET streets or slicks. I launched @ 3500 rpms and bogged pretty hard.

When I got my 11 sec ET, i was coming out of the hold @ 4500 slipping the clutch and spinning slightly. But could go full throttle powershift and keep decent traction.
