    Exclamation KMP259 At Run & Gun

    This is Morris's Cobra at the Run & Gun and just listen to the sound of that motor.

    Incredible!

    Listen to all of the Audio carefully, you will note that his Laps are consistent every time.

    The sign of a Professional!

    Well played Morris.

    Replace the cookie cutter CRAPCAR vehicles with Cobras and I would start watching again.

    A friend sent me that video many years ago.....(10 years) and My Brother was driving.... (pay back for being my Observer when I was racing)....He was very quick.... running Fast GT-2 Times .... and 2 seconds off the GT-1 times.....

    But the motor is as strong as Silverback..... and we've tuned on it to get more power and a bit better mileage....3 Miles per gal.... Sunoco #112 race fuel.....

    I feel very fortunate to be the Steward of KMP259..... it is quite the vehicle....

    Great picture Morris and the motor really sounded good in the video. If you have it better tuned and making more power now you should really have fun.

    Well, when the new ones come out with the Hemi, you can resolve that problem.

    Morris,

    I have noticed that even in my Coupe and KMP259 is much louder as I run baffels in the exhaust pipes.

    Very nice sound Morris, the sound of a true race car. You have done well with that car. It gives me something to shoot for.

    We attended SAAC 42 last year at Indianapolis. KMP259 was parked near my trailer. I walked over and studied the car and the workmanship. It's quite exquisite.

    Thanks for noticing the quality & safety we spent time on with KMP259....that comes from my racing days & rules..........and Indy is the Ultimate track.....we didn’t get on the track because I got up late and didn’t make the drivers meeting......my fault....but my brother showed up in his Porsch GT-3RS and we played a bit at the noon session......& my SCCA Friends were there learning the track for the “Run-Offs” last year.....

    That is a great picture David and if you want to see some of the work that went into KMP259 just read Morris's build thread at the top of the Build Forum. It is fantastic at the work and craftsmanship he put into the car.

    I may be going out on a limb here, but it may well be the finest ENGINEERED Cobra out there.
