Cobra seems to have gotten a little loose there on the first run, I wonder if the sway came when he shifted...... Second run looked much better for the Ford, still got beat. I dont know much about the Benz's but that one was quick.

The Mercedes E55 does mid 12's from the factory. With those mods on the cobra it should be able to beat the E55 but as you all can see, the driver needs some practice and some bushings for the IRS. The Mercedes is an ATX so the driver doesn't have to do much. I want a Cobra so bad, they are freakin bad ass for 35K.

Good vid. I wouldn't exactly have the Cobra being pissed on and th AMG being praised at the dn like that tho. Especially since the second time was pretty close. The AMG does cost $80,000 and cobra is less than half that. I'd take the Snake and th extra 40K to play around with it anyday.

I think the Cobra should've slaughtered the benz with those mods.

I've seen that video elsewere. I am not saying the cobra should have smoked him, but more hp and lighter weight, it should have had him by a couple car lengths easy
