A.J. TataCopiague, NY'04 CobraA.J. Tata brought the only '04 Terminator, and was the only one who didn't swap over to an automatic. Instead, he laid in a Liberty TKO600. Tata, who's Cobra was a former MM&FF cover car, threw himself into the back seat on the first run--literally. "When I dropped the clutch on the first run, the brackets holding the seat in place broke, and I literally went into the back seat," Tata remarks. "It caused me to pull my hand off of the shifter and my foot off of the throttle." After swapping the passenger seat into the driver side, Tata made another go at it, and proceeded to bang the gears in the Snake to a 10.19 at 137. With the third run being a bit slower than he liked, Tata lined up for one last blast, and at the top of Second gear, threw the blower belt off. Either way, a low 10-second pass in a stickshift car is nothing to shake a stick at--pun intended.
Good Info in this Article. Good to see the "Lightnings" at work again.
