hay all recently watched a dvd that came free with unique cars mag it had a section on cobra v el v8 supercar around oran park looks to me the supercar needs to go back to the shed for some mods if it wants to get close to the cobra,, grreat flick.

my 2 cents

Yep....thats quick ....but not as much fun as a Cobra.

The best Cobra dies 1.01....Ian pretty....definitely not on Strret Tyres.

There are two Cobras ....both street legal that would match that time....says a lot for their driving skill considering the basic deficiencies of a Cobra

Its all about having fun and thats one thing a Cobra gives loads of.

Sambo.

Aerodynamics, wheelbase could be longer, wind noise......but the most fun you are ever likely to have on the road or track.

You wouldnt buy a Cobra if you wanted the best handling track weapon around.

Looks like you have chosen a Harrison......you wont be diappointed as they have a proven track record and great before and after sales service.

Phil

Thanks Phil. It won't see a lot of serious track time - good rubber isn't cheap - but it's nice to know the Harrison performs well. Although I think the operator might be the weakest link for a while

Looking forward to my first Shelby Fest

I fully expect to post the slowest best time
(if my practice on Good Friday was anything to go by)

Anyone care to speculate on low/high times?
