Any other CSX 4000 owners on SAAC?
« on: April 18, 2018, 10:17:21 AM »

Just wondering if there are any other owners on this site. I'm hoping for some dialog and sharing of knowledge on these cars, so do post if you own a CSX 4000.

It would seem I'm not alone at all, are all of you original owners of your cars?  I'm the third owner of mine and look forward to being able to drive it more regularly with the improved weather.

You might want to include CSX6000 Series Continuation Cobras as well, they are basically the same car, the only difference being when Superformance took over construction vs SAI. SAI started 6000 Series production and Superformance took over after Shelby’s passing.

Very true, my invite wasn't meant to leave out any of the continuation Cobra's. In fact, I'd love to see more of the whole CSX line posting.

So my invite to post here is extended to the entire Continuation series. So far it's great to see other CSX members on here.

It looks like there is at least eight of us on SAAC, which is more than I truthfully expected. I'm a new owner myself, as of last year, so I'm still learning the car. One thing I will be replacing soon is the Goodyear "Billboard" Eagles that came on the car. I'm considering the Avon's as an alternative to the Goodyears, does anyone have any experience with the Avon's as to their handling characteristics, etc. They are slightly cheaper price wise than the Goodyear's, are DOT approved and are size wise comparable to the Goodyears.Has anyone  found a good source for either the Goodyear or Avon tires, other than Roger Krause or Sasco Motorsports?

Hi Steven,
I've had Avons on my ERA 427 since purchasing it almost 5 years ago and I love them. They were purchased from Acton Custom Enterprises (Nick Acton) in New Hampshire. He's great to deal with...very knowledgeable about Cobras.

AVONS are an excellent choice for either the 427 or 289 variants of the Cobra, you will not believe the difference in the quality of the ride!

Thank you John and CSX2259 for your recommendations on the Avon's. While I like the Goodyears, they do tend to "road walk" on uneven roads and give little advance warning at their adhesion limit. The fact the Avon's are DOT approved is an added plus as well.
I had also considered the Michelin TB15, but they have limited sizing in 15" and the overall diameter of the tire was over an inch less than either the Avon or Goodyears.
