Yeah, but when I race my friend in his 96 Cobra, it will be about the person next to me. I drove his car and it just doesn't seem to have the go go go that my ST has. Mind you it's the non-supercharged 4.6 Cobra.

Well when you have someone next to you then yes reaction time matters but until you get your ET's down I really wouldn't worry about the person next to you. Now once you figure out how to launch your car and get the ET's your suppose to run then you can start worrying about reaction time and such.
