Hate to break it to you but running 91 octane will not cut nearly a second off of your 0-60 times. Also the cold weather has as much of an effect on your car as it would on his.

My family had a rental car Elantra for a few months while my dad waited for his company car to be built at the factory. I think it was a 2002 - it was surprisingly peppy but not SVT peppy. How much does a 99 Elantra with manual trans. weigh?

P.S. - race him past 70 and then see who wins. Something tells me Hyundai wouldn't allow an Elantra to be capable of reaching speeds near 140.

Ive gotten my hyundai to 130mph never faster, i know he has the top end on me , but i thought hed smoke me in drag too. I dont think the zero to sixty time of 8.4 is right it cant be because it doesnt feel that slow. I didn't beat him by much if that makes you guys feel any better he was right at my bumper, or 1/2 a car behind. The reason im really asking you guys all this is becasue i dont know if i should tune the car or maybe turbo charge it. If i can beat a stock svt with a stock car then i think its worth putting money into. If anyone lives near 818 with a stock SVT or very near stock SVT id love to race. I dont know how more i can prove this isnt BS than that

You've had an Elantra up to 130?? I'm honestly surprised that Hyundai would have engineered the car in such a way that it is possible to go that fast. Not saying you're full of it, but I never would have guessed a Hyundai compact economy car would be capable of that. Expect many more people to "raise the B.S. flag" on you. There are plenty of skeptics on this forum...

I had a 97 hyundai elantra also with the 1.8 liter, that thing was a dog compared to the new 2 liter it only got up to 107mph and ran a 9+ second to sixty, the gear ratios were different as well. Just curios, how do you guys race you focus in drag, if you went all out, i want to tell my friend and race him again.

And you have driven what other cars to compare your "feeling" of it not being that slow. Hell I thought my focus was pretty quick until my brother let me drive his stang.
