    Will it be a sacrilege if.......

    i stick an automatic in an 03/04 Cobra?

    found a good deal on one and drive in stop and go traffic and don't want to be bothered with the clutch wearing out prematurely.

    big boost and a mild stall converter..... what ya'll think?

    ahh go for it

    If I remember correctly, they had a kinda weak clutch anyways and there were TSBs on the clutch cable/auto adjuster

    ... and if you are like me and drink coffee, and hate to shift with the left hand...

    Come on....

    There is nothing like drinking coffee, talking on the phone, and smoking while driving a stick sports car in traffic. You can shift with your elbow if you have too


    Speaking of manuals. Some dumb ass had a brand new Mitsubishi truck on the highway the other day. He was having so much trouble changing gears in some slight highway traffic, I decided to go around him. Luckily I did, because all of a sudden at about 45 you head the clunk, the tires lock up and the truck came to an abrubt stop as the guy downshifted and killed the motor. The guy behind him almost ass ended him. It was funny as hell, but I am sure embarrassing for the driver!!! LOL
