    Good comparison? Haha. This is basically engine vs. engine, because you can't just drop an engine in a light frame and call it a car. The type R is not a good car for its price, to get any power out of it you have to turbocharge it. And yes, this car is factory ford. Made in the same factory as the GTs.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    How dumb are you? The Type R doesn't put out any power? It's only a 1,8 liter! Imagine Honda making a Type R engine with the same displacement as the Cobra. Wow!! That would really KICK ARSE!!!

    I'm not sure about calling the Cobra R stock. They have taken a stock Mustang and sent it to their inhouse TUNER SVT. And Hoseman Brembo is NOT factory Ford, it's the best brakes in the world though.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->


    Umm. WRONG. The SVT Cobra is a STOCK car. It is stock, meaning, it is made in a Ford plant with Ford employees who's salaries are payed by Ford, with Ford parts alongside mustang GTs. SVT and SVE are divisions of Ford. What don't you idiots get. SVT=Ford.

    Yes the brakes aren't made by Ford, but no company has all their parts made by them. If you seriously think that then don't even bother responding. It's not like they took a whole engine and put it in the car. For the honda lotus, they just took any engine with output and putting it in a super light chassis, not very hard at all. If they actually wanted performance, look at the shelby cobra's. Little lightweight cars with a ford 427 in them. That is done correctly.
     
  2. Re: another domestic crap

    Why does everyone always have to compare American Muscle to Japanese Tech? The Sun International is a Special Built Performance car, the Mustang Cobra R IS a production car. They do cost about the same but perform quite differently. Even Sportcompact Mag said that the test didn't make sense but they did just for the hell of it. So to put my two cents in I'll say yeah the Lotus out performed the Mustang in every test minus the dyno but this is one of the best mustangs Ford has made yet. But for me I'll take my B18C5 in the lotus.<!-- Signature -->

    Read this article and weep! A European car that cost as much as this piece of shit! And the Elise beat the Cobra at EVERYTHING!!!!

    Here in Europe you could also get a TVR, which is quicker than the Cobra.

    There you go!

    Wow, comparing a tuner car with an engine from a type-R, mega-upgraded braking, and with a bad cooling system that can't be drivin on the street to a car that came out of the factory. Good comparison!
     
  18. Re: another domestic crap

    I think its a really good comparison.... considering how much domestic people bash the type R and its motor...... this proves a point that needed to be put into hard numbers a long time ago. The stang also has MEGA upgraded brakes.... what do you think Brembo brakes are? Factory Ford?... I dont think so<!-- Signature -->

  21. Re: another domestic crap

    It's too bad the elise doesnt pass any of the crash test because its a sick car. But aside from that the car they compared was a tuner car, so its unfair. I could probably make a one off car with 50 grand that would kit both those cars @ss's, i wouldnt look good but it would be mine. and don't hate domestics cause there are a good few of them that cost less then your imports and can still kick your ass a few times over.<!-- Signature -->

    This si prooving nothing for the Type-R engine. It was dropped into oner of the world's lightest car chassis, so ofcourse its gonna be fast, it has almost no wheight to pull. Drop the Integra engine into a 3500lb chassis. Lets see how well it burns then. Chances are you'll be running 11 - 14 secs in the 0-60.
