    Great videos...I've been wathching them all. If I didn't read your post I would have thought the Cobra was going to win but you reeled him in fast!

    Thanks this was my first time at this type of event and I'm hooked!!!!! Over the winter I'm going to to pull the engine and go with the Mopar heads Gen4 headers and a cam. Can't wait until next year!!!!!

    This was my best run. No trap speed for me as I was going way too fast!!!!! Raced the AC Cobra three times.

    Looks like the Cobra was geared for the 1/4 mile and ran out of RPM's .

    Exactly, wasn't a close race, just that the Cobra ran out of gear. That Cobra was pulling away in 2nd as well, pretty stout!

    In case anyone reading this is interested in future 1/2 mile events held by wanngofast, there will a spring and fall event outside of Chicago, along with another fall event held in clayton GA (outside Atlanta). That is looking like the minimum.

    Yep the Viper did not reel him in at all.....he just topped out in speed before the half mile. The little Cobra pulled on the Viper in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and even 4th....

    It happens...

    The cobra is probably running 411's or 456's with a big block weighing in at 2,300 lbs.

    A win is a win!!!!! At the end of the day this was a half mile event a I won not once but three times. If you watch the side view video that was my best run of the day. I was in the left lane And passed him after the quarter mile.

    If they are doing anything in the midatlantic or northeast I'd be interested...these events look like a lot of fun.

    Wow. That looks like a blast. I have a Cobra and mine is the same. Lots of bottom end speed but dies on top pretty quick.

    :lmao: Ummmm.......

    Definition of track term "reel in"... To catch up to and pass a car that is in front of you.....
    Pretty sure that's what we saw here...:dunno:

    "he just topped out in speed before the half mile" and the Viper went around him....3X.
    The race was for 2600'. Who cares who is leading at 1000'...:rolleyes:

    All that matters is who crosses the finish line first

    Well said and absolutely true.....:2tu:
    Nice KILL....!

    I will be running both Monee races and the Atlanta WGF events next year. Hope to see you there.....

    I've made some changes and hopefully NINJAKRIS will be handing me a 200 mph slip....

    Cobras are SUPER quick especially the 427 high HP units that Superformance makes.

    I have to say that in some respects and as great as some new supercars are, they are disappointing when compared to these old Cobras. These big block Cobras are just visceral on Crack even compared to an early Viper... I was very excited when the rumors were circulating about the C7 vette being only 2,900 lbs because there is just nothing better than a ton of power in a really light car.
