Here i am finally. Sorry it took so long. Juggling a full time job, sleep schedule, as well as good old healthy substance abuse has been cutting into my racing time. And i just finished school! So as usual i drove the Cobra Coupe stock, just trying to see how it behaves before my imageinary mechanics & crew get their hands dirty. I didn't try all that hard. It's been months since i've even visited Rome Nite (other than the occasional Manufacturer's Race) so i had to remember the corner structure while at the same time dealing with my Cobra's inadequacies which are the following: 1. Understeer 2. Springs too tightly set keep it bouncing, especially up on some of the rises and if i cut across an apex grid. 3. Throttle induced oversteer is present, but not horrible, since the power is only 394@6,500. A bit of limited-slip tuning should fix it. Anyways, i got a 1:37ish time. Yeah, i know it's not that great. Like i said, i attacked the springs and limited-slip first, as well as lowering hte front to 111 mm and front damper to 3. I also brought the front-end camber to 3.8° I felt that the Cobra didn't have enough top end down the main straight portions (if you can call them straight) 5th gear definately needed to have some play-time too. Now my first-lap fixed car could almost catch up to my stock Cobra Ghost (the ghost was from my stock 2nd lap) and i got a 1:39.691...woulda caught the damn ghost had i navigated a couple of turns better. The good news was present, though: My car handled a lot more predictably. Time for some final tweaks. I felt my lap time improve a bit, but wasn't happy with some of the lower-speed corners, where i wanted more kick-back from the rear. So i raised it a little and added more rebound back there, as well as pretty much axing the decel LSD so i could get a nifty power-slide on a tighter angle. Of course, this increases the danger that my Cobra could spin out...but when behind the wheel of a '66 Cobra, Danger is Parnelli's name. Sorry, just a little cheesey moment. Springs: 9.7 / 7.3 kg/mm Ride: 111 mm / 125 mm B. Damps: 3/5 R. DAmps: 4/6 CAmber: 3.8° / 1.2° toe: 0 all around Gearbox Auto 11 1st: 3.800 2nd: 2.775 3rd: 1.975 4th: 1.500 5th: 1.200 Final: 2.800 Downforce: 0.66 / 0.85 LSD: 17 / 31 / 8 Tires: Supersoft / Soft No traction controls (just keepin it real...they didn't have this **** back in 1966) Finally, i got a respectable 1:33.589. Hooray for me, i'm a looser! Naw, i don't care. Perhaps if i try more downforce and get to know this course better, i'll get lower lap time.
