New Era Cobra Jet Photo Thread
« on: December 20, 2011, 06:35:03 pm »
I was wondering if it would be ok to start a new era, '08-present Cobra Jet Mustang photo thread?  I think it would be cool to share some shots of these great cars that carry on the Cobra Jet legacy.  I'm as much an old school FE guy as the next guy but I really like these cars!!

Just thought I would toss this out here.  Fastest 0-60 mph production vehicle made to date claim has been made.

I wonder what Taska's 2010 at 7.9X time slip 0 to 60 mph was?

Another fact came out from the race at Indy with Don Fezzell 2008 car.  First Stock Eliminator car to get into the 8.XX, money can do wonders.  Sure would like to look at his rear suspension


Ford Racing
April 13
.
Don Fezell became the first Stock Eliminator car to record an 8-second pass at an NHRAevent today at the 4Wides! Piloting his 2008 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Don ran a blistering 8.954 ET. Smokin!

No Bob,

I recorded it. We're finally getting the cars to hook up like they should. We ran some 8.70's at Tulsa about three weeks ago and ran 8.8 at St Louis in the heavy class.

Had the front wheels turned before it even touched down.. that will do it every time!
Good to have a tape or painted line on the steering wheel to help mark straight ahead on any serious drag car.
