Some of you may know that I recently purchased a 03 Cobra with a KB making 613rwhp. I wasnt told of any suspension upgrades when I purchased the car and havent looked too hard. Anyways, the car hooks like crazy. I havent tried to launch it, but from a rolling start (maybe 5-10mph) it hooks and takes off like a f-ing 747. Is this normal for a cobra with this power level or do you think it has some suspension mods? I am going to climb up under there today and see whats up...

I guess so...This thing hooks way better than the GT did and the GT was slow as balls. I didnt even really think about it until I saw the thread about the guy that cant hook up...lol

You didn't look over the car enough to see that when you bought it?

I looked under it for signs of rust and to see how clean it was and I even helped the guy swap the wheels from my GT to the cobra, but I wasnt looking for any upgrades at the time because the guy went over all of the mods with me and no suspension mods were listed. I asked if he had an IRS brace on it and he said no. I plan on getting one soon, but I am going to jack it up today and get under there.

Not at all...its amazing! I guess I just didnt think about until now and was wondering why the hell it hooks so damn good...Makes me want to try to launch it, but Im afraid to if it doesnt have an IRS brace.

Did you look under the hood to make sure it has a blower?


What tires are on it?
