FeWedge Kirkham Cobra Pics

Here are a few shots of FeWedge's alloy Cobra with alloy stroker
Tunnel Port engine. I'm sure he will be glad to answer questions in
this thread. The paint will be done after the summer, giving him enough
time to dent it up real good.

Re: FeWedge Kirkham Cobra Pics

David and Tom certainly know what they are doing when it comes to those
Aluminum KMP's....Does this one have the newer stainless steel chassis
option???

No, the big option was the Griling brakes and orginal suspension.

It already has a dent in the door. But thanks for the vote of
confidence.

HOLY SHNIKIES

What a beast. So nice to see that aluminum (for Stu, FastEd and MM, that's
al-u-min-i-um = ).
It's gorgeous. Abso-freakin-lutely gorgeous. And I am duly impressed with
the obvious attention to detail, including the jack points, instrument
cluster and reversed 4sp. shifter. Man, what a sweet ****ing ride!

Are those drag radials? I'd expect the need for an exotic tire choice with
a power to weight ratio at what, 1hp:3lb?

¡Que bonita es!

Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is
attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing
falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any
refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that
the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys
after this process of grotesque self-deception.- Mark Twain

"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to do the bidding
of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are
being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." -
Hermann Goering

"We don't go out and hire journalists and propagandize and lie and put
people on payroll so that they'll say what you want."--Donald Rumsfeld,

Re: FeWedge Kirkham Cobra Pics

Do you have two throttle return springs? With all that juice (in my case,
only about half that juice), I'd put a larger one over a smaller one... just
a thought...

Re: FeWedge Kirkham Cobra Pics

So you went with the original suspension, mine will be more of a track
car (similar to Steve Sunshine's old 4027), so I'll be going with the
Wilwoods. Dave and I have already spoken at great length about this over
the past year........My "Kirkham in a box" will be my stress relief from
the day to day "grind"(so to speak)........

As for the dent, call David and ask him to teach you how to "float it
out" from behind.....Most Kirkham owners could also have a sideline job
of paintless dent removal after owning one for a year or more (get used
to the dents and dings now, along with the idiots who will come up to
your unpainted car and still rap their knuckles on it and ask if it's
aluminum)........Once again, a very sweet car.........Enjoy.....

Re: FeWedge Kirkham Cobra Pics

Mine will see some track time also. I am not real happy with the
handling right now. I think the big issue is the spring rates they are
using. 450 fronts and 600 rear. Tom suggested switching front to rear.
I'll give it a try, but I think I will look for some different springs.
Good luck putting it together. I think you will find the wiring
challenging. The wiring diagram on there site has several errors
which leeds to many hours of fun.

Re: FeWedge Kirkham Cobra Pics

They are Sports Car Specials. They seem to do a fairly good job of
keeping it on the road. I did get on it pretty hard couple weeks ago
(7300) shifting into 3rd and it stayed planted.
