It was nice seeing the mayor there but it woulda been great if the minister of sport cudda pass through and at least see how much support motoracing has in Trinidad.

It was quite a lot of fun blasting down that straight from the lights. I've never been that much into drag racing but now I truly understand why drag racing is so addictive to those who do it.

Despite the one or two shortcomings it really was a great event. I dont know where else in the Caribbean you could see a Nissan GTR line up with a Shelby Cobra.

I guess you could say it was an experiment that is turning out to be successful, once all the bugs are sorted out.

Well done again Rawle.

Cellphones and digital cameras werent invented then and a video camera would take up the whole backseat of my car.

I did manage a 55.3

To keep up with circuit cars we would have to do extensive suspension mods, cuz they were faster on the corners. Im still on stock springs ( thanks to Solodex rules ) and stock 1300cc engine.

best i got was a 56.4 or summ so with the CVT
with proper tyres I think I could knock a second or two off that....I don't think my car would need extensive suspension mods tho.......some sway bars maybe.....what I really need is a manual transmission :(

Youre kidding right? Did you see the negative camber on that B13 ??

I didnt realise u were using automatic transmission...u a brave man. The only way an automatic would work there is if its connected to an EVO 10 !! :D

lol I have 1.5 degrees negative with the option to go to 2 degrees (aftermarket camber plates) but needless to say, those cars don't belong in a stock class
if you saw my 'launches' you'd have realized it was a CVT (shifting in 'manual' mode), but the car makes up for it in the corners. I didn't get the opportinity to line up against one of the sentras but I caught up with all the other cars I ran against after getting left in the dust off the line...........granted there are ES class solodexers who would have left me in the dust everywhere ;p

Allyuh forget my GTR is a street car that was built to hold its on on a road course or time attack course. It's not built for drag. But I know of another GTR that would be more than happy to play Mongoose for the Cobra in a straight line. :twisted: :twisted:

Yeah I have done nothing to my GTR in terms of suspension/handling. Coilover setup, that's it.
I wonder if Autosport could set up a lap diagonally...should be able to get a minimum of 1000ft of straight and then into some turns.
Might take away from spectator parking, but I'm sure there's a way to have it done.

Another good idea we have looked at, and definitely going to address, with the competitors and safety being a priority.

YES - this is exactly what happens every time I drive the Cobra - but its no problem as long as its not raining.

Anyway next time you see that car I will ensure my boost is up !!


Well, if this is what happens everytime you drive your car then your boost should be up every day !!!! :D :D

Cobra is fixed - a photo of the culprit is included below. I forgot to insert this valve in the brake booster line and so most of the engine boost bled off via the brake booster. Unfortunately this problem only developed on the way to the start at Arima on Sunday so there was no time to diagnose and fix it. Sorry about that.

On straight line performance both cars will probably be similar because if I apply too much power the Cobra will spin its wheels. However, remember the Cobra is supercharged - so power comes in instantly which is great for a fast take off. I am now working on the brakes and suspension and when those are to my liking it will be extremely hard to beat.

I think the Cobra can win, even though it would be close and I very much look forward to the next event.

On straight line performance the cobra would be more than left behind by paparazzi's GTR.

As much as I respect the 800hp cobra.....I think it'd be left for dead in a straight line

You haven't seen many rwd cars set up properly. The Cobra will need good tyres to compete with that beast even on 888's... but surface will definitely be an issue due to the awd advantage in the launch.

I got my entrance fee in my pocket to witness whenever it happens !!
