Angry Cobb made me look like an idiot tonite...

And yet, I am so glad that they did. Please accept my apology for derailing several threads of Cobb users posting their outstanding track times as tonite I witnessed firsthand what Stage 2+ did for my car. I only had one run tonite because I went there without a helmet like a boss. I am number 4037:

Name:  Cobb stage 2+.jpg

Mods are the same as before, just different tune:

Cobb Stage 2+ aggressive stock throttle
Helix FMIC
Raceland downpipes

I had 1/4 tank of good ol' Shell 93 pump gas.

Cobb please send me race gas maps, PRETTY PLEASE!!!

117 traps on pump gas with an FMIC and Dp's?? That's incredible...

The 12.3 is nice I will admit, but I was more ecstatic about that trap speed. I have a steptronic transmission. The car next to me was a GT500.

Damn, that's pretty good with that 60'. Work on your launch and those will be great numbers. I think I'm going back to the track tomorrow after seeing this.

Seems you ran the same traps as clap with less mods !! Do you believe in the Cobb stage 2 straight pump gas now,Over the jb4 map 7 with 2 types of fuels ?Or do you still think atco's twin track is the one you ran at tonight ?? I'm not a hater and congrat you.Nice run ram.

Maybe I'm a little slow this late at night. But when you say Cobb made you look like an idiot do you mean because your time was too fast and the track didn't let you run again because you didn't bring a helmet?

I was getting the impression he just asked too many questions instead of just trying it out.

He tries to be funny .He made a thread a about once and said,look what your downpipes did to my car or some crap like that.I looked uP his history makes no sense to write threads tittles like that.I did give him props for the trap or more to cobb! The quick for no mods .p.s is that your car ram with all the swirl marks?

They made me look like an idiot for doubting the results of others like in this thread:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=594179

My dumbass starts questioning those times and trap speeds around page 3, and now I trap similarly with less mods. Way to shoot myself in the foot!

Weather was a cloudy 70 degrees last night as well. Overall I am VERY satisfied how it ran with few mods.

I really can't argue with the results from my car just from switching. Cobb got a flawless victory over me last night.

I was with RnmEvo9 last night, and I was right behind of him. Let me tell you something, that sh*t was epic man. I was probably more exited than him he was just shocked in disbelief that he did 12.3 @ 117 mph

He acted like he was dreaming and had to pinch himself couple of times

RnmEvo9 knew if he screwed up I was going to eat him up alive on the time LMAO

Since it was warmer last night I did 12.6 @ 109 1.9 - 60' consistently. If I had Cobb with the same 60' running Stage 2+ I am pretty sure it would have resulted in another :



All I am missing is DPs which I will get after I get another car this summer, then it will be time for Cobb tune.

hey dude, first of all congrats. That's a very solid time for your car! Sorry, but I have to be completely honest with you on one thing though. Your current power output has far exceeded the limits of your trans. At this stage you need the level 10 AT tranny upgrade, done by one of our members. If you are not going to upgrade your tranny, then be smart and limit heavily your use of the car at these power levels, if you want your trans to last.

I was just stating facts. Our 6AT has torque input limits, designated by the manufacturer (ZF).
