    If you look closely..........the Cobra catches up(and actually pases him) at the end of the race/vid.

    According to the video maker, they both were stock. Eventhoough I like EVO's alot, I would not mind having an 03 Cobra myself.

    jdms hate of mustangs blinds him to the truth. even a heavily modded evo couldnt TOUCH a lightly modded 03 cobra. for $1500 you can have an 03 cobra put well over 500 to the wheels.

    I love my DSM, but oh how I wish I had an 03 Cobra. I would take off the stock routes type blower and have a turbo setup made for it...then again, I could just put on a Kenne Belle and be done with it.

    I don't like mustangs much, but I do love the whine of that supercharger combined with the roar of a v8...

    As far as the race goes, the cobra didn't even get good traction at all. On streets with any high hp rwd car you won't really start pulling hard until 3rd gear at least, and I don't even think they got out of second. I agree that in a 1/4 the evo would have lost bad.

    Just another example of AWD goodness to us :thumb: Had it been from a roll the stang would of blown the EVO out of the water, atleast judging by this video. Of course without knowledge of the two setups all I could say is good victory by the Lancer.

    The guy who comes out and starts humping the air in the video looks goofy as hell.

    i was surprised at how the soft the cobra looked suspension wise compared to the evo. i would like to see a shoot out on a road coarse or a drag race with equal horse power. it was an interesting video, thanks.

    The most entertaining part of the video was when, at the end, the guy in the white shirt runs out and does the "air-hump"

    teh funny

    at first i was like, damn that guy is on crack! yes it seems as that is the universal gesture for rape

    i doubt that any one there was sober enough to tell when the cobra passed the evo.
