    I'm posting because this is a positive comment from a Chevy guy. No one else posted. Lets create some positive conversation.

    Quickly enough for me, if not for some other snobby idiots who think that 400 HP isn't enough. After that, your wheels just spin more, unless you have one mother of a traction control system.
     
  11. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    well i'm not stupid, it makes since after u put 403 hp in a light ass car.....well it's now time to spend money on traction items...so i did do away with the struts and went with some 12 inch wide tires that's a ***** to buy every month and a half but it's worth it....my next project is better brakes...when u got a whole lot of go u need some whoa any questions? mike_landrum2004@yahoo.com

    test
     
  13. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    i can asure you it has plenty of soul. its great to see people loving cars for the cars though, and not constantly saying mustangs all suck, chevys all suck, etc. no matter what car you love the most, this is one bad sonofabitch.
     
  14. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    I absolutly love this car, this is 1 of 4 American cars that i like, and i have more respect for this car then the camero, this car is a mchanical masterpiece, just a beaty
     
  15. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    This car would be better if it had A/C and a stereo system. I'd hate to be driving it on a summer's day!! But this thing was made to hammer anyways.
     
  16. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    This is truely an amazing car and arguably the best mustang ever built. Plenty fast, good power, and very good looks but the no AC thing would'et work in PHX, AZ especially in the 115 summer. But then again windows down and 80mph down the highway isnt bad and im sure this thing could do alittle better than that.
     
  17. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    I'm not really a fan of Fords, particularly their F-series and Rustang, but I respect this. I'm glad that American companies aren't afraid to make at least a few musclecars like this. (SSR, this, Corvette, Viper, Silverado SS, Ram SRT10, SVT Lightning, ETC.)
     
  18. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    I started out as a Ford guy, strictly Ford. I owned two mustangs, my second one was a 97 Cobra convertible, so i definitely love Fords. Then I went ahead and bought a 69 Camaro Z/28 (tuxedo black, white stripes, just in case you had to know). Now I don't consider myself affiliated with either Ford or Chevy, because I have owned great examples of both. But NOBODY should be able to deny the stunning looks and performance of the Cobra R, i don't care if you bleed bowties, you should definitely realize that this car rips.
     
  19. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    I'm still surprised at the weight of this beast. Even with all the deletes, it's still 3600 pounds! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love this car, but I just keep thinking how much better it would be a few hundred pounds lighter. I mean, when Mercedes can make a ultra-luxury V-8 sedan 400 pounds lighter, there's something wrong. This is actually the problem I have with most American cars right now.
    Oh well, I gues it's due to all of that shoring up of the old chassis they've had to do. I hope when the 2004 chassis comes out, we're going to see a Mustang that's as capable as anything else out there!
     
  20. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    That's a good point! Why is this so heavy?

    Don't get me wrong, if I had the chance to own just one Ford...this would certainly be it without a doubt! But I would DEFINATELY put in creature comforts like A/C and a radio!
     
  21. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    Something tells me that this site has screwed up the weight of the Cobra R. 3600lbs does sound heavy. The new cobra which has an iron block, super charger and intercooler, radio, ac, etc...only weighs something like 100lbs more. I don't know for sure (and I'm to tired to look it up) but I'm sure that thats not the right weight.
     
  22. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    I will admit, I am not much of a Ford guy, but this Mustang Cobra is truly badass!!! the only vehicle to come from the Ford stable that I like is the Mustang, and I too would love to hear this machine roarin' at full throttle!! this is absolutely sweet, I don't see how you couldn't like this!!
     
  23. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    Yeah, I'm a Chevy guy too, but this Mustang is in the right direction, I'm sick of Ford only using the 4.6 liter in the Mustangs and expecting it to be more powerful than the LS1 346.
     
  24. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    I think that there are 3 american "gods" (there's a new one) like I said, the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird (the new one is the Dodge Viper), my favourite is the Firebird, but this Mustang makes me thing it twice...
     
  25. Re: im a camaro guy.....but i respect this thing

    I love all mustangs, but i agree with you. they need to start using the 5.4L V-8. They made a prototype mustang with a 5.4 and some huge HP numbers. that thing was bad ass. they need to employ the big motor more often.
