Default Griffith

I driven a few hipo griffiths, 200 Series & 400 Series. Yes, very fast cars, if set up properly. They can get twichy at very high speeds. The real Cobras I had rides in were also very fast. 289 and 427 cobras also need a lot of attention while driving at high speeds.
I don't take a lot of stock in original tests as they are very in consistent, some absurdly slow or unbelievably fast. As to which one is faster, who knows. I feel a decent hipo Griffith is good for a sub 5 sec. 0 to 60 mph run.
I think maybe there needs to be a contest, an original 289 or 427 Cobra VS a 289 hipo Griffith.
As the old saying goes the B.S. stops when the green flag drops!
