Every Cobra I've pulled up to has said they have "540rwhp", like that is their magical number or something... I have only taken one getting on the freeway and i let off at 75mph and he was about a half a car behind me... i'm at 486rwhp... so I take it they are either 'stretching' their numbers, or I happen to get lucky... i ran 8.1xx in the 1/8th mile in 98 degree weather my first time ever at a track just the other week (got kicked off cuz i had no helmet and ran faster than 8.59, so that ended my track night)

I think they're over hyped and lying about their HP most of the time... Don't get me wrong, I like the Cobra's for some reason, but out of the 15 or so that i've come across, "540 hp to the wheels" is what they say..

A guy I go to shows with has a bad a$$ cobra, I have not raced him but I am pretty sure he would take me down. He has a ported blower, boltons, gears ect... but the cobras I have raced myself I have taken down, most of the time by a car or two. They are very hyped up, I love the look on there face when a fat a$$ 5th gen put a woop on em!

A lot of them are, especially those Cobra's that are driven by bad drivers.

I don't agree that they are all THAT hyped up considering I trapped within 3 MPH of your time in your signature in a bone stock Cobra and later trapped 117 missing 4th and shutting down at the 1,000ft mark with a pulley/intake/tune/exhaust a DR.

I'd say that is pretty good for a 462 RWHP that weighs 3800+ LBS with a 200LB driver.

Anecdotal "evidence" at best. Many Cobra owner such as myself can claim to have beaten every 5th gen that's been willing to run. Albeit in my area there are only basic bolt-on cars for the most part.

I'm fully willing to admit that my car, being only a basic bolt-on car itself, would be highly outclassed by much more heavily modified cars. Case in point, a friend of mine has a fully built TT-LS2 GTO, putting down over 660hp on a conservative tune; and another aquantence with am '08 GT500 Super Snake. Either of which would walk me like I was in reverse.

However, the 5th gen crowd hasn't present too much here yet. There are plenty of videos to support the claim that the 5th gen is faster than a Terminator, stock for stock and mod for mod...however there are just as many to support the opposing view point. Thus is the way of the internet.

Comparing cars is fun, especially the old Ford v. Chevy rivalry. But it should stay fun, don't let "loyalty" and "prejudice" blind us from facts.

Now; keep it fast, keep it safe, and let's all have fun.

Read my second post, I roll to shows with a bad a$$ cobra and its actually the one mustang I really like! Yes I have beaten every one of them that I have raced, but my only point is that they dont all run 10s, its just as bad as the bolton 10 sec 5.0s that you never see in person. So much hype that the first time I ran into one I thought I was gonna get KILLED! To mine and the cobra owners suprize I won 3 out of 3 runs with him, all I had at the time was long tubes and flowmasters. He was full exhuast, intake and nitto 555s. My car took 2 cars and he pulled one car back in second gear, then we would just stay that way till the top of my 3rd gear.
