Kicked a Mit GT az i think he had a CAI and
custom exhaust and mine was stock .He came along side and started to rev his engine and a buddy who thinks hyundai`s are crap he got ahead from the lights like 1/2 car then by the end of the 1/2 mile bit i had 2 car lengths on him .
The funny thing is he went home started to open all sort sites to see why he lost and kept me up explaning why he lost against a hyundai [boy good to win but not good to listen him justify his loss for 3 days].
The second was a long run like 20 miles and it was a mazda 626 with exhaust [ that i all i saw] i guess i made loops around his car this guys were pissed <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
i reached like 124 mph and if i keep it floored maybe i can sneak another couple of miles on a flat surface.By the way 124 mph / 5600 rpm and my car redlines at 6200 so i think i can push it a bit,all in all a good day.

How did he justify his lose? I can't figure it out myself. I'm not saying that you didn't make the kill I'm just asking how you did it. Was it gearing? I know that the Sonata has some HP but at the same time it weighs around 3250lbs, on the same note the GT is a whale to at around 3190lbs and the GT SPY at around 3300lbs which would be a more realistic race since your power to wieght ratio is only apart by 1.44lbs per horse still him with the advantage but the normal GT of about 2.04lbs per horse even more to his favor. And thoughs numbers are stock v.s. stock this dose not take into account his CAI or custom exhaust. So did he have a bad launch or was he a pour driver or is the gearing just really good on the Sonata? I'm asking because I have raced a few GTs with my Tib. I had great launches and I am an good driver and know my car well but even with my CAI and... well my CAI, I couldn't take them even with the awsome launches that gave me a good 1/2 car on them in the end they out powered me. Once again I just want to know whats up with his driving or should I start looking at a Sonata for my new car?

okay even i am a bit shocked at this really.
nobody told me i could actually do this.
<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> when i brought my sonata[family sedan remember].
Anyway there r 2 things first my sonata redlines in every gear when i drive it in the auto manual mode [the auto rev limiter in the shiftronic is not there in the early sonata`s i think]so when i move from L-2-3-d the car lauches through each gear and goes to the redline[i press the brakes till i rev atleast 2000+ rpm before launch ].I know it should not happen and i get 23mpg but what the hell i like it.Now the other fact is like when i drive in say 20 miles and suddenly take the gas off and press it rev`s like a manual and at the rpm it reengages [makes an awesome rev].Now i am not such a car buff to explain this but and in auto my car hold gears during hard acceleration and actually deaccelerates when i let go the gas.
personally i think the transmission is messed up and i am having fun and when it goes i hope the 10 yr warranty helps

Ya I can barely keep up with an Acura Integra with intake, exhaust and headers done on my 1999 Sonata GL V6. Its an automatic though.

When I flick the "switch" I can take a RSX-Type-S but thats only with the "special glowing switch".

Thats funny last time I checked the Mitsu Eclipse GT did 0-60 in 7.3 according to Car and Driver and the Spyder did it in 7.6 according to Road and Track which is a bit faster than a stock 5-speed Tiburons speed of 8.1 to 8.3. But maybe their numbers are off... Maybe.

Everything I can remember seeing on the Eclipse GT was mid to low 7's.
The GS and RS were more like stock
Tib times....I think they are in the
147 hp range?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Didn't know the Sonata came with a stick<img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>,so I awarding myself the Big Dum Dum Head of the Week trophy. Anyhoo, Consumer Guide Road and Track Test gave the AUTO 9 flat 0-60...so the 5 spd must be a least a second faster...I'm supposing.

The Eclipse times I mentioned were 5spd, the GT AUTO does mid 8's 0-60.
I may have under-stated the hp on the GS and RS...probably more like 154 hp ..."claimed" anyway.

Have you also noticed that C&D gets about a second fast times than anyone else in the world??? Take the WRX for example.. subaru was claiming like 6.2 or something.. they now claim Low 5's due to C&D's run with it. I can't remeber were i got that 8.3 run from the eclipse but ill look and send you the link when i find it.

THE GT WAS A AUTO mine is a 99 sonata and his is a 98 but both have the same mileage so that does not matter i think and also i have raced him once more on the weekend and still came out winning ,for the last time i guess - he got his nitro and i am sure he is going to pay back for all the wins <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> lol

but i though the auto runs in like 8.0sec and i am planing to see what my 0-60 next spring.

did u just say that his was a '98 GT? That is impossible then. The V6 GT didnt debut until 2000 or 2001 model year. Are you sure you dont mean GS? Was is the new body style?

Ya I'm thinking he raced an automatic GS. I still hope it was a GT but the numbers just don't make any sense.
