Did you go with 1 7/8 primaries on the ARH or 1 3/4? I was looking at them when I had my first 04 and they seem like such a nice setup.

Hard to criticize over 60rwhp gain by switching to E85 and running more timing which makes the driveability even more impressive.
F race gas! LOL!
Eric is right a surprising number of times. A surprising number.

1-3/4".

Took the Cobra to Fayetteville yesterday.
Spin-City with the 18" Toyo TQ's but did manage to run 135mph in the 1/4.

Drove The Punisher to the local Sheetz to fill up with E85 today.
Nice to drive this car! Attracts lots of attention..................



And about 10 minutes later............



So the State Trooper was really cool when he pulled me over.
We talked about my Cobra for about 5 minutes and he told me about his 01 Bullitt.
He was very interested in my tinted windshield...........LOL

Trooper gave me a warning on the tint and reminded me about the AS1 line. I told him how I paid extra for the whole window to be tinted at 55% to be legal..... and we both laughed. LOL.

He asked me was the car stock.... I gave him the, "Let me show you something response..." as I reached over and handed him one of my last dyno sheets. His face said it all. Haha! 714 was the one he saw.
We talked a little more about my car and then about the mods he had done on his Bullitt. I told him about Fastlane and invited him to stop by sometime.
The last question he asked was about the exhaust, I told him about the American Racing headers, 3" x-pipe and Magnaflow catback.
As he walked away I cranked it up and was watching him in my mirror. When it fired up, he stopped, started laughing, and got back into his Tahoe.

Got my new Bogart Racing Wheels in last week.

Sized so they will fit the Cobra and the Mach.

16 x 10" with 6.5" backspace.

Called the Bogart RT Bolted design.

Just realized it has been along time since I updated this thread.
So in the last few months here's the quick update -

Got the racing bug again.
Installed Hoosier 28-10 slicks onto my Bogart rear wheels.
Installed M&H front runners onto my 17" Bogart front wheels.

Went to Fayetteville Dragstrip on 11/12/2017 and ran 1st pass ever on drag setup.
During burnout alternator quit, dash gauges did a full sweep, but car still running....so of course I staged it and made the pass. LOL
4K launch and small bog outta the hole. 1.68 sixty foot time.
Ran 7.0 @ 99mph in the 1/8th and a 10.70 @ 136 in the 1/4.
Drove back to pits and battery gauge at 11.8 volts.
No more runs.

11/19/2017 - Back to Fayetteville with a fixed alternator (broken internal solder joint that Johnny's Electric fixed under warranty - 200amp upgrade).
Did a burnout and staged.
4k launch and BOOM, driver side 1/2 shaft decided it had enough.

So car is now down for a minute till I fix it. Going for a mid to low 10 second pass before end of the year.
Car is super fun to drive and banging the gears is always exciting.

Stay tuned as I decide if I stick with the IRS and spend almost $2K for upgraded 1/2 shafts or if I go with the proven solid-axle swap.

If I were to swap to a solid rear, I would probably take the IRS and put it into my Mach 1 and then take the Mach 1 solid rear (8.8) and put it in the Cobra.

It would be pretty cool to have the Mach 1 as my daily with the IRS under it. Plus the Cobra would definitely benefit from the weight reduction!

So this happened yesterday.

If you're gonna be a bear, be a Grizzly.






Decided to put the Full-Tilt Boogie IRS into the Mach1. Dragged the Mach1 rear out and going to take it apart and build it up to handle some drag-strip action in the Cobra including 33 spline axles, C-clip eliminators, etc.
