I did and it's because I share my car with someone that doesn't know how to drive a Manual. The only cars that I've raced and beat me, was a Tib with a Manaul-tranny and a Elantra GT with a Manual-tranny. That race was close though...very close.<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle> I had to stop racing so I guess he beat me."?"
If you don't like an Auto just take look at BatLords Auto Tib and you will change your mind about yours...that's you have one.

He is trying to prove that an Auto can go a long way in regards to speed. Soon I'll be doing the same project with the only difference, am going to do Forced Induction Tuning on my car. I think Bats car is mostly for show but he is doing N/A Tuning on his car right now.
Take a look at his car in the forums called show room and it's under "My Tibby - let me start with the teasing"
It is tight.<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

I owned an auto tibby before I bought my 5 speed. Don't waste your money on the auto. trade it in.The reason I say this is hyundai transmissions suck! You put a turbo or supercharger on an auto and you'll kill it quick.Also the power difference between the auto and the stick was totally different, drive a 5 speed and you'll see what I mean theres so lag from the tranny it's much smoother and quicker.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

You can always do a LevelTen upgrade<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
From peolpe who have done it have had only good things to say about it.
It's the best thing you could do for an Auto, especially if your going to go with a Turbo/Super charger.

hi guys, well many of you have the wrong impression from autos, yes they are weaker and the power loss it's unbelievable, but it's possible to supercharge it and/or turbocharge it... have many of you already forgotten that one of DRAGON FABRICATIONS turbo tib is automatic... yes it takes more modifications to make the transmission stronger, but once those changes have been made they are also too last much longer... I know of guys that blow their clutch every single year, why? it's a 5speed shouldn't they last forever, well no, every transmission has it's weaknesses... mine blew, but maybe theirs things I should have done to it before that, like getting it from LEVEL 10 or going thru DF and having them bulletproof it... but thats something I learned... as someone said, I will show that an auto can be made to go fast, not by a COMPANY but by myself... yes it's mostly show, but I've also been one of the only few that have really dynoed my power, most of you guys out there claiming you beat this and that with your 5-speed how can you if you haven't shown your true power... don't just purchase products, please purchase them and dyno them... how do you know that what you purchased has gained you HP? how do you know you haven't lost any???

well all in all I just want to say not to put down autos, please don't, yes it will take more money and more mods, but if these are your reasons than you are in the wrong hobby my friends... wrong hobby... this is a hobby for life like in the 50's people are still working on those cars... so think lifetime, and not just a quick boost if that's what you want then get NOS, but in my eyes that's not taking what tuning is to it's max if you stop there...

have fun and be safe no matter what you have an auto or 5-speed... <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

My point is most people on this site don't think about the importance of strengthing the trans. They just modify and go. Than when the tranny blows there like "what happened, I don't understand".<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Automatics are nice..... FOR ME TO POOP ON



I don't know were the guy who i got that from got that from... Anyway, i think autos are boreing anyway/take no skill a little brake torque and hit the gas.. WIth a stick ya have to know when to shift.. how to shift, how to take off, etc... even if they can be made to take the extra torque. I hatem. I have raced an Auto Accent and i kick the crap out of it... maybe the smaller engine makes the diff.. but the 1.6 auto REALLY sucks..

well, they paid for the tibby, so they get to choose where its auto or man, but the supercharger is gonna be comin from my own money. they dont care what i do to the car if i pay for it.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

well i have had both an automatic and manual tiburon.
the manual is the one i own now.
and i hafta say that my auto was damn faster on take off than the manual i have now.
and everyone who has driven in both cars agree. i don't exactly know why this is so but it appears to be that way from my experience with the two tibs i have owned.
and before anyone gets any smart ideas ... yes i do know how to drive my manual very well ..... thank you and HASEMA

I'd go for turbo if you can afford it. i just dont trust those superchargers... I'd talk to someone that has supercharged a tib before i did it.
yeah tigger, ive heard that the auots are faster on take-off, but I'd have to race one to make sure for myself <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
