Original RD POST:
I always thought that the 427 AC Cobra was such overkill that I would rather drive the original 289 version believing that the car would have better balance and be more fun to drive overall. GT Legends actually had that car and I had a blast with it.
I spent the day doing this...that's it...one day. I downloaded the original Shelby Cobra package by the_meco and pankykapus. It is truly a beautiful rendition of the 427 Cobra. I also have in my library the 1967 Sunbeam Tiger made by Smallblockhero. As you car guys/girls know the Tiger was also a Carroll Shelby creation in the mid sixties. I adjusted the specifications from the Tiger to more closely match a Cobra with a 289. This was quick and dirty no doubt but this car turned out to be so much fun I wanted to share it. Deciding on proper tires was an issue but, after experimenting, in the end I just stuck with the original tires from the the_meco and pankykapus mod because it drove the best and was the most fun. I hope you folks enjoy driving this hybrid creation as much as I have this afternoon and I hope I haven't stepped on anybody's toes by jamming this together.
9/13/19 New instructions
Download and install the_meco and pankykapus AC Cobra mod. www.racedepartment.com/downloads/shelby-cobra-427.2710/ Make a new folder and call it shelby_289_cobra. Copy the guts from the downloaded meco "shelby_cobra" folder and paste them into the new shelby_289_cobra folder. Delete the data.acd file, the texture file, the ui file and the sfx file. Then take the new data, texture, ui, and sfx files from my latest 1.3 update folder and paste them into the shelby_289_cobra folder. These modifications to the original AC Cobra 427 mod have been approved by the original builder (meco and pankykapus) He deserves tremendous credit for such a stellar mod! **Please read the notes on the 1.3 update page!!**
