Each year, the Ohio Cobra Club, a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, raffles off a Cobra replica with 100% of the net proceeds donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. It is with great pleasure to be able to say that over the years, in excess of $1,228,000 has been donated to help fight Cystic Fibrosis. We would like to thank everyone that makes a donation or purchases raffle tickets for helping support research that is working to find a cure for cystic fibrosis! Please visit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website, for additional information about CF.
The 2018 London Cobra Show's raffle car is a Backdraft Racing RT3 Cobra replica, as described below:
The ladder-type chassis is fabricated in a jig from SAE 1008 2” x 4” hot rolled rectangular steel tubing having a 1/8” wall thickness, which provides a sturdy chassis, both in beam strength (bending) and in torsional rigidity. The chassis is reinforced with laser cut steel gusset plates in several areas for added strength in high stress areas.
For added safety the chassis has a front crumple zone and the roll bar is structurally mounted to the chassis.
The body is a high quality, one-piece, hand laminated, glass reinforced plastic molding, with extra fiber mat reinforcing in certain areas. The doors, hood and trunk lid are double skinned with a smooth finish and added rigidity, with steel inserts in the hinge and lock areas for added durability and strength.
The floor, transmission tunnel, fire wall, front inner wheel wells and luggage compartment are laminated to the main body ensuring rigidity and strength. The engine bay and front inner fenders are finished in white gel coat for durability, smooth appearance, and ease of cleaning and maintenance.
Painted with a show quality two-stage Indigo Blue/White stripe base coat/clear coat finish. A single stainless steel roll bar is structurally mounted to the frame.
The front suspension features cast lower wishbones with custom fabricated coil over struts. A front stabilizer bar assists with the Cobra’s handling. The front end has 18” diameter x 9” wide knock-off wheels with 245/40/ZR18 Nitto 555R G2 ultra high performance summer tires.
The rear suspension uses a centrally guided multi-link rear suspension that is fully height adjustable, making it easier to fine tune for either street or track use. The suspension has proven itself both on and off the race track. Rear has 18” diameter x 11” wide knock-off wheels with 295/40/ZR18 Nitto 555R G2 ultra high performance summer tires.
