Mike, I couldn't believe how fast you were all weekend! I didn't think a GT car could get around there like that! Good job!

Has anyone tried them yet? Looks like they both 7 port and 9 port come with balanced cranks... I see them on Desoto's website but not in stock yet.

The first shipment will arrive next week. We'll try them at the Nova Challenge race @ Blue Diamond Aug 2-4. Some lucky person will win one in the raffle on Sunday!

Default SWS at COTA Circuit of the Americas IGT

Great weekend racing, 3rd race with my Cobra GT. Added the LRP bottom Braces, lap times went down .5 a lap. Went back to the Flash Rally, 15/19-46/50 with the 2015 pipe! Wow, great combo the gearing really made the car scream. I could have and should have leaned the top end out about 2-3 hrs.. to get more run time... 30 mins... 211 deg... Lost the insert out of a new set of Alpha Softs after about 10 mins. quick 2 min. pit stop and got 4th.. Congratulations to Chad, Edward and Tony for your podiums this weekend....

Hey just a quick note.we are Looking for GT Racers.

I have been reading through a lot of this now that I have a Cobra on the way. It sounds like I will have my work cut out to get this car hooked up. Glad to see all the info that has been put here. Another snake in the pits.

I have been able to get my Cobra Gt to do exactly what I want pretty much everywhere I have been. At our home track I have 3 different setups that all work very well. Each has a different feel to the car but all work well, just look at the fellow snakes on the track now. I am looking forward to working on this chassis with you Gus, we work well together as a team.

If anyone might be interested it is now a open motor. After last year "they" (whoever that is) decided to open the motor rule.

Default Cobra GTs with "LRP" Dominated at SWCS #5@COTA

This past weekend we had the opportunity to have our SWCS #5 series race at the Circuit of the America F1/MotoGP race facility in Austin, TX!! The sites and sounds of this incredible facility truly added a unique feature to the entire racing atmosphere. The racing was great with both Nitro and Electric vehicles racing the same layout. Big Thanks to all the folks that made this event happen.

The Top 3 in GT8 Nitro were all Serpent Cobrasl using "LRP" arm braces and 2nd & 3rd using RCShox dual stage shock pistons.

1st Chad Kiffie
Serpent / Novarossi / Alpha Tires / VP Fuel / KO Propo

2nd Edwardo Romero
Serpent / Novarossi /Alpha Tires / Merlin Fuel / KO Propo

3rd Tony Luna"tic
Serpent / Reds / Sweep Tires / Merlin Fuel / Airtronics

Pics of track and winners below.
