- the Elantra weighs ~2635 lbs , more than 100 less than an SVT

- SVT has 6 gears = more shifts (more lost time if the guy can't drive properly)

Okay number of shifts but what are u planning to race a half mile? for every hundred pounds u loose how many ponies? Its impossible, either the SVT was a fake or he just plain old sucked or he just wanted to inflate the elantra's ego so he can squash it the next time
