    Nice runs man! I'm going to try to auto-x with my 04 cobra, I don't see many people auto-x with these things.

    You don't see many Autocrossing Terminators due to the heat they produce. You need some serious cooling.

    I Auto-Xed my 03 cobra and you are absolutly right. It S/C got hot and it laged on some straight aways. I love Auto-xing such a blast.

    I autocross my 04 Cobra as much as possible. The real problem is that the nose is so heavy that it just isn't nimble enough on the tight courses to compete. On the positive side everyone loves the way the car and blower sounds going around the track.
    Here is a video of crappy but fun run.

    I did on that run. My best time that day was 76.00 seconds.
    That is a go kart track. A couple times a year they run a lapping day where you just go for like 15 mins at a time with no cones.

    Doesn't look safe to me in the least! :dw: I've seen some crazy stuff in autocross videos of that same scenario.
