    I'm just busting your balls. Besides on a road course a V would be about 5 laps ahead by the time that thing finished a lap and then by the end of the first lap I'd be pulling into the pits because I'd have no brakes left

    Stkshkr has hundreds of drag passes on his maggied V and was on his original diff. It's at EPP getting a Procharger now, so he upgraded to Doug's rear cradle before that, but it would seem that the stock diff can handle drag launches, just not abusive ones.

    were talking about a modded CTS-V vs. a modded Cobra. i put in my .02 and then he comes back with that.
    nobody here thinks you have anywhere NEAR the amount of car knowledge your dad does, dont kid yourself. i dont see it as a personal insult, just a fact.

    Well, that's boring. Why did this thread have to go civil?

    As for having respect for all good cars, remember the last 3 letters of my screenname. I have always been a GM guy, moreso Chevy. But certain Fords, like the SHO and Escort LXe, I certainly like and respect. Because I stated the V would win this race doesn't mean I don't like Cobras. Far from it.

    That's the only issue with those 20" rims. There isn't much cheap about them, especially when it comes to tires. It's been awhile since I worked at Just Tires and we had a guy come in with a Harley Davidson Edition F-150 and he wanted new tires and at the time the cheapest we could get per tire was $700. So just for s & g's what did you pay for the tires on yours?
