if you want to read an article about how a 98 tiburon smoked every import model and a ferrari, pick up this month's Sport Compact car magazine. In it, they list the specs of this tibby. It has 620 some horsepower almost double the hp of ferrari. Granted it did not win the Contest, no other car came close in hp. and 1/4 time.

Yeah, it was pretty cool! 3.33 0 to 60 time! But he's running two turbo charged engines and 2 separate auto trannys. Did anyone see the video yet?

The only thing I can't figure out is how he got his fog lamps to stay on in park!?! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/angry.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> I noticed that they were on in the Feb issue and in this issue. I have tried the jumper trick but that keeps the old foggies on all the time!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

SCC wants you to buy it online - http://www.sportcompactcarweb.com/archives/features/feature01_0302.jsp <img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I was hoping that they would have some clips...that's why I was asking if anyone has seen it....

Did you wire the +power of the fogs to the hot wire of the running lights? Wouldn't that work?

I got the video today!! It's pretty cheesy but it was all worth it to see the burnout at the end.

If only McIntyre had let Coleman drive his car, or atleast try on any of the other tests, I think they could have placed first.

Oh well, I can't wait to se what shows up next year!

i dont know. seemed like with everything done to that car it was purely a straight line car (how boring... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>). i dont think a car with 2 engines, and 2 trannys would be light enough, or have the weight distrobution to even come CLOSE to hanging with the 510 (abosolutely godly car... you might not understand, it's a datsun/nissan thing <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> ...)

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>Don't go knocking Nissan nMap...when it comes to performance they're one of the best with their Silvias and Skylines...both of which are to be discontinued(good for us because we dont have to deal with 4cyls that spit 700++hp at us at just 1.0bar of boost! See JUN) The RX7 is to be discontinued also, and Toyota Supra is discontinued. The major contenders are out of the picture it seems, and Hyundai can take advantage of this to break in to the performance market! Only...these monster vehicles are still out there, and in the unfortunate event that the twin engine Tibby comes head to head with perhaps an RX7, Evolution or Skyline GTR with a similar level of tune on the circuit...and gets torn apart, we'll be there to learn from what mistakes have been made(if any)...and continue evolving our Hyundai vehicles into more competitive machines!
