It's a combination of being an ultra light car as well as a short wheel base. The wheel base on a Cobra is half a foot shorter than a sheet of plywood. Get sideways in one of those and you're in some real trouble. That's why you don't see many of them at the dragstrip. You don't have room to make a mistake.

The lower powered versions are much more useable. You can explore them to the fullest.
Foot shorter than a sheet of plywood. That puts things in perspective. Regardless whether the car gets detuned or not, Ive always liked asthetically seeing that big block under the hood at car shows and 427 badges on the sides. Then again, maybe thats what everyone says at first? Thanks for the videos. Ive read about Cosbys bit but never heard it. Thats funny!
