It's a car with an automatic tranny.

It's called autotragic cuz it's a tragedy it was ever put onto a sporty car <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.

An automatic Tib is barely quicker in the 1/4 mile than a manual Accent 1.5L. I'm not sure what the 1.6L's do in the 1/4 yet.

??? Whats MIR? Did I miss something? But the answer is probably not because I work this weekend. I'm going down to Capitol Raceway tonight for Test & Tune Friday. If anyone else wants to come I'll probably be there around 5 o'clock, and as always keep an eye out for other hyundais.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>


BTW, if your the bumble bee accent that was at Pep Boys the other night, its a phat ride. I was talking to ya for a bit (I own the 2001 Blue Accent), remember??

Just got back from Capitol! It was a lot of fun and everyone there was nice. I've got a 1.6L accent, so now we can all know how quick these cars are. This was my first time drag racing at a track, so somebody with more experience would probably do better.<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle> Anywho, here are the times. My fastest run with the stock intake was a 17.3675 with a .8035 reaction time. Honestly, this run was with the resonator off, but there was little difference in times. Actually, the accent is probably faster <i>with</i> the resonator on, but I never had a good reaction time when ran with it on so I don't know for sure.

I also ran with my custom intake on (a civic shorty intake hacksawed down to make it fit with a cone on the end). My best time was a 17.1528 with a reaction time of .9487. I have a feeling that a better driver could have an accent with an intake only can run 16's, probably all day with a CAI!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> BTW, that run was against a 2000 Civic SI with an intake and exhaust. I had him <b>beat</b> by several lengths off the line untill about the 1/8th mile point (me: 10.9643 him: 10.6446)!!<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle> I think I might have scared some people (esp. since NOBODY knew what kind of car mine is <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>). All i need now is an exhaust and that KORE CAI...<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> I think I'm gonna create a <font color=green>monster</font id=green>!<img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

Nice!

I could tell those 1.6L's are quicker when I drove it, but I didn't know they were almost a full second quicker than the 1.5L's.

Check out the July issue of Performance auto & sound. They're just starting a auto tranny upgrade. Says with the right mods, the auto "can and will outperform a 5-speed on the drag strip". hmmmmmm....makes ya think.....<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
