All I have to say is <img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0>Toast<img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0>

hehe. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

It wasnt a race from the start. I was goin about 80 and i passed him on the highway. I KNEW he was gonna race me cause he passed me 15 min earlier doin about 120. As i said I passed him and i was watching my mirrors and of course here he comes creeping up on me...i let him get about halfway up the side of my car when i shifted to 4th and held him there for a bit then as soon as i hit 5th it was over. i pulled up a car length pretty quick and hkept pulling....then we started going up a hill and he fell waaaaaaaay back. Either way i was happy. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I'm sorry, I love the 2k3 tiburon as much as the next guy, but I don't consider passing someone going 80 and all that a kill. To me a kill is where both are lined up at a stop, then race. I don't really see how you could consider this a kill. Secondly, was this a four door v6 accord or a coupe, and you don't even know if it was an automatic. Say what ya want, but I wouldn't be bragging about what happened. I am sure I will get blasted but oh well. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Dude, like I said, I respect the 2k3 tiburon as much as anybody. How is passing someone doing 80, who must be going slower that you for you to be able to pass a kill. You had the jump, of course your going to win once you get ahead and of course they have similar power and torque which equals not being able to catch up. Post again when you can roast a v6 standard coupe accord from a stoplight. I hate honda boys as much as anyone, but they make good cars and good engines. Thirdly, just a question. Does anyone know the weight comparison of 2k3 tiburon and a v6 accord coupe?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

if you had read then you would see he started to pull up.....then i started to gas it and it was even for a second then i started to pull away. and yes i know that my car is 240 lbs lighter. and who knows if it was an automatic or not. Either way I was happy and thats all that matters. so maybe you ought to go back to your mommy and learn some manners; like if you dont have anything nice to say then dont say anything at all. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/finger.gif width=33 height=15 border=0>

I am glad you are happy, it was not my intention to make you unhappy. I simply was providing my opinion on the subject matter at hand. You did post the story, therefore leaving it open for discussion. You have your opinion and I have mine. No hard feelings, I don't disbelieve you or anything, I just have a different definition of a kill from you. I say potatoe, you say pototoe.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

The thing i know is that V6 accord has dual exhaust and auto only.. well US might be different but Canada it is.. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> so I am assuming he raced a sedan/coupe V6 auto <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I would fully expect the V-6 Tib to
out-run a V-6 Accord pretty cleanly
in a 1/4 mile drag. The Accord's 16 flats and 15.9's don't intimidate me, I race em, and all I have is an '02
Elantra with a "racing" pulley. The races are close though, when they happen.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I used to have a '98 v6 accord for a few years. Those things aren't really as powerful as you might expect out of a 3.0 Vtec v6. Its mainly due to the bad suspension and its very heavy weight. I had an autotragic one and I could never get it up under 15.5's. Having driven a 2k3 Tibby GT 6spd, the engine seems way more alive and a bit more quicker but then again Honda wasn't aiming for a really powerful coupe with their Accord and it had really bad limits on them but Hyundai has and knowing the potential of the delta, it could do alot.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Congratulations man! a kill is a kill. i have a 2001 tiburon, 5-speed. some cocky kid in school with a v6 coupe was talking smack so i offered to race him off the line. i toasted him by at least 2 car lengths. if i can do that, i have no doubt that it was a nice kill for ya. again, congrats!!!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0>


<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>I got a 2001 Hyundai Tiburon on Friday July 13 2001. My only problem with my car is, wait, i dont have any problems. I d*$k on every car ive raced, including mustangs, passats, jettas, caprice, lancers, civics, accords and more, with only a cone filter

Yeah, you guys are so coool! "A Kill is a Kill", hey man whatever makes you guys feel better about yourselves.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Who's whining anyways, you guys are the ones who got pissed because someone questioned your "Kill". I never said that a 2k3 tiburon could not take a accord coupe off the line, maybe I just have higher standards of what a kill is. Hey, I also have an idea. We could flame all the newbies who post cause we don't agree with them, and then we could have all of hyundaiperformance.com too ourselves. That would be smart.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
