Cobra R's are nice, but everyone has them, and you can either get the 1995 or 2000 R's....or what I have which is the 1999 Cobra's which are the lightest cobra wheels that so far have ever been produced...

here's how the car sits right now...these were taken from a track event I went to 3 weeks ago:

I thought it was lowered.
Don't worry I am going crazy. long day.

lol it's all good. It handles actually really well, I was so far up in that green cobra's *** at the track day I could see what it had for breakfast....

I've got new tubular control arms with poly bushings coming on Thursday, that should really help tighten things up...I have weld in sub frame connectors with seats pans, so the car is relatively stiff.

I might have to look into some sub frame connecters for him.
He won't lower it, but the body roll is killer.

make sure they are WELD in...don't buy the bolt on subframe connectors.

This kit would help alot, and is basically the same setup I have.
