Well, you would think by the pattern the tire that would be most similiar to the crimefighters would be the Mambas, but I always end up running the Vipers. The crimefighters and bowties are the tire of choice at my local track, but lately I have been running the Vipers. This past weekend, I switched between the Vipers and Crimefighters and I was about 1 to 1.5 seconds faster per lap with the Vipers. The Mambas hook up good when the track is loamy, but as soon as the track transitions to loamy/blue groove I switch to the Vipers. Not that the Vipers are blue groove tires, but they do well when the track is a combination of loamy and blue groove. I let another driver use my car and he said the tires were hooking up much better then his car with Bowties.

thank you once again to everyone for there kinds words .Your words mean alot and it makes me more determined to make products even better and more cost affective .

Im sorry about the pricing so far in the states i know its a bit high at the moment but it will get better .It seems theres a pricing war between Proline and Panther that we at cobra want no part off .

anyway please enjoy and products and i wish you all a successful 2008 in family ,health ,wealth and racing .

with maximum respect Angelo

Dear racers


I thought i would give a report on cobra tires.

I know it was not a national but this was the first race of winter series in my area and my 3rd time out with the tires and they worked great. Track was wrecked and a little muddy and the tires made the day easy, alot of people were struggling with what tire to run and getting traction on the dry parts of the track but I had no problems all day. Also cobra rims are unbreakable. I abused them all day with no problems what so ever, Also the light weight of the rim made the tires weigh less after being full of mud which help alot on the clutch and motor setup.my tire choice was mamba and after all day they still looked new and the foams felt great as if they were new. It was great to get more than one race day out of a set of tires.

By the way I won.


Charlie

Question. On the track I run at, the hot tire is the switch 2.0. In fact bald is even better! What Cobra tire might work in the same conditions? Interested in trying a set. Thanks. Matt
