Factory Five Racing Cobra Replica - WR TV
While we may be living in the golden age of performance right now, there
will always be a place in the hearts and minds of gearheads the world over
for the classics.
The AC Cobra was the brainchild of Carroll Shelby, who took the gorgeous,
lightweight body of the British-made AC Ace and stuffed a Ford V8 in the
engine bay, thereby creating a legendary sports car that we still lust
after some fifty years later.
While original Cobras command price tags well into seven figure territory,
companies like Factory Five Racing offer replica kits which are much more
accessible to the average pocketbook. And as you'll see in this video,
they're almost indiscernible from the real thing in terms of aesthetics,
mechanicals, performance and sound.
This particular example features Factory Five coilover suspension, a
warmed-over 302ci motor that breathes through a great sounding set of full
length headers, and a modern Ford Racing T5Z 5-speed manual transmission.

Mk4 Roadster Time-Lapse Build
A 2011 Factory Five Roadster, (An exact replica of a 1965 Shelby Cobra).
Myself and my step dad built it together originally for the MYP Personal
Project which is a mandatory requirement at my IB school. It took
approximately 6 months to get it to a skeleton stage with no body or
furnishings, but all of the mechanics worked. And it took about a year
after that for it to be completely done. The last part of this video was
shot in 2013.
Here is a link to my full site - where i documented the whole process and
my MYP statement can be downloaded.

Today on GEARZ, Stacey jumps into a project that's bound to get everybody
talking...a SUPERCAR that will run with the Ferraris and Lamborghinis that

you how the whole supercar thing came into existence, and what it takes to
build something that will run over 200mph...safely! If you've ever dreamed
of owning a super car, and thought you couldn't afford it...... this is a
show you can't afford to miss!
How to adjust ride height & corner balance your car - KW Suspension DDC - Technik
Setting your ride height is just the start when you switch to coilovers.
The real beauty of using KW DDC coilovers for us was in being able to lower
the car and maintain the OEM corner balance. KW and other coilovers also
let you improve the corner balance or weight distribution of your car if
your car doesn't already have a good set up from the factory.
Technik and GTChannel show you how to set up the KW Suspension DDC using
our project BMW E92 M3. We changed our wheels and tires to a square set up
and in doing so raised the front ride height. This changed the handling
characteristics. By putting on the DDC coilovers we were able to adjust the
ride height and more importantly regain the stock corner weights despite
the taller front tires.
Robert Choo lends us his expertise and garage to do the adjustments.
