Didn't see this posted. Pretty favorable review. Elantra Sport was SLOW though.
0-60-7.0 seconds. 1/4 mile in 15.6 @ 92 mph.
The track they use looks like an abandoned dump.
They should be embarrassed. Guess they can't find something better.

They need a better track or a better driver. Car is way faster than that.

How do y'all lunch the car? I couldn't get better time than 7 sec either, and this is not my first manual.
At what RPM do you dump the clutch, I was scrambling for traction at 3000rpm.

(from a dig, no roll)

Not dumping the clutch is the first solution. ;)

I didn't get this car to run 1/4's. I got it to confidently conserve speed through turns.

That being said, 15 is pretty slow.

Keep in mind that they most likely do not use DA (Density Altitude) corrections like the magazines do. This would have knocked a few tenths off and add a few MPH generally speaking.

Also, don't get caught up in the numbers. Its easy to do!
