Welcome to the forum. You also might also want to check out the Superformance owners forum (SCOS). Has a ton of info just for Superformace owners.

Welcome from me as well. Any information you want about Cobra replicas - you will always get advice here!

Some good advice to start with if you haven't owned a Cobra previously is to take it easy and get to know the car really well and how it might behave when it's being 'pushed' a little. Short wheelbase combined with high power to weight means that they can be a handful sometimes.

Enjoy!
Cheers,
Glen

Welcome and tell us a little about where you are and what you will be using your Cobra for. How about some pictures?

check out this Thread

LCS Cobra Crash

First post has a link of a youtube video. You will see how little sideways it takes for these short wheel based cars to go out of control, and how quickly it happens.

Do not think any experience you have, in the past, in other cars, qualify you to master handling one of these. They handle better than anything you ever drove in the past, giving you a false sense of confidence. When you loose traction, things happen in milliseconds. Faster than a mind can think. If you do not posses the correctly tuned auto-reflex response, you will not recover. If you do this in a bad place or at too high a speed, you will die. Take it slow. Pick very open places to learn how to handle this car. I suggest Auto cross in a parking lot. It is the most fun you can have with your clothes on. It will help you learn.

Be safe and have fun. Wishing you well.

Welcome to the madness.
