SCMC had an event there at Mid-America a couple of years ago. Tony, Big Daddy, Poolman, Ken Walter, Brian and I were among the players. Great track, lots of runoff space, like VIR, but a bit shorter. Council Bluffs, Iowa police use the track for training their officers. I've seen the video of them chasing a Cobra around the track, but not catching it.

:thumbsup:

it sounds like it has a HUGE turbo and its funny seeing the flames shoot out of the tailpipe when the BOV releases

Very Nice, considering my Cobra just went into hybernation/surgery for
the winter.

Did anyone notice how much steering wheel input the Mazda
required to negotiate the same corners as the Cobra R. The R required
damn near twice the wheel turn to make the same corner. That's
exactly what I don't like about my Cobra, too much wheel work.

The guy in the Cobra R is a good friend of mine from Wisconsin.

I ran with him at MidAmerica in Iowa a couple of years ago. He was just purchasing his R at that time and I gave him his very first ride inside an R.

Since that time, he has heavily modified his R and become a VERY good driver!! :thumbsup:
