Shelby Cobra 427 ’66 530pp

The Shelby Cobra is one of those iconic cars that everyone loves. It is classic American muscle with huge power, but what makes it different is its light weight. Most muscle cars are extremely heavy with a huge engine, while this one is light with a huge engine. I don’t have to tell any of you that light weight with huge power makes for a killer car. The only problem is the suspension is not very good and it needs really sticky tires to keep traction. I am using this car for a 530pp seasonal event where the tires are very poor and it was hard to get traction. After some time I finally have it balanced enough to be a good race car, but still maintain a bit of fun. You shouldn’t have a ton of problems with it, but be careful in the first couple gears. Do not just slam on the gas because the tires will light up the track in a bad way. At this pp level I don’t see too many other cars beating it. I destroyed the seasonal event without issues even when the tune was really bad and it became a lot easier to beat with the current tune. The picture was taken by Aeolus426.

EDIT May, 28, 2016 : Changed to 530pp instead of 430pp, which was a mistake
