I want all you guys to take a look at the latest issue of (I thinik its) Import tuner...

Flip through till on the left page at the top, you'll see a hand drawn picture of a RIDICULOUS Accent and a nissan r35 skyline...

Basically what it says is that hyundai motors is allowing this company called Highendperformance.net to build our car for an upcoming car show (I forget what its called but its basically a high end version of Nopi)

Basically what they're doing is building a custom widebody bodykit, doing a beta turbo swap... with a... get this (salivating) Santa Fe AWD drivetrain!!!

Dont believe me? when trying to follow up I found this...

This is cool... what it goes to prove... is that there are no more excuses for us to not build our cars... if we want to stay ahead of the curve.. we have to do WHATEVER it takes to get our cars to be ridiculously powerful....

Yup :) fun stuff

What's with the bookshelf on the back, how many horsepower does that add?
  Not really feeling the pee colored headlights or the fuel door that looks like it's covered in electrical tape. lol!

The beta turbo/AWD thing sounds interesting but not something I'd ever want.

the BA spoiler is like the one on the wrc cars....most likely styled after that...would be nice with a much much milder spoiler, get rid of the riduclous yellow tint on the lights and a half way normal(read something the average joe would have) paint job might be nice....someone should photo shop it!!...lol

awd=lots of fun :grin:
awd+turbo=extacy!! :w00t:

stuff sticking out=

Front canards... disrupt the airflow around the front bumper causing a disruption in power robbing windstreams

Vents behind doors... cools rear brakes while putting down force on rear end (better traction)

Vents by Front canards... same thing...

Yes, all ricey as ****, but if used correctly, can be invaluable to a high speed racer... aerodynamics are where its at!! :)

I found this when I was looking for body kits. Thought some of you guys might want to see it. I thought it was pretty nifty.

There's only 3 things I'm not a fan of with this car:
1. The wing. Spoilers are meant for downforce for rear wheel drive cars, so that they have more control.... Although it does look kinda cool... Okay, maybe I like the wing... maybe... Yea.
2. Vacant grill. I know it may keep the radiator cooler... :/ maybe. But it just doesn't look cool like that.... plus... bugs... haha
3. Hate yellow headlights.

Other than those things, I think it looks awesome! Love the decal going from the headlights to the back. And the body kit is very well designed.

I think it's pretty gross and apparently they did too. It was abandoned IIRC and the guy who was doing it is known for being a bit of a hack too unless I'm getting my people mixed up so even if it did come out, it'd have probably been crap.

I am guessing you never drove through a high speed curve before for you to make that statement.

+1 kid has no idea what a spoilers function is on a fwd car.

with that being said, rear wheel traction is a definite on a fwd car. and as slow stated... what will happen to a front wheel drive car in mid-corner if the rear wheels lose traction? yupppppppp.

youll find yourself backwards and twisted up staring back at the track in the other direction... Few people seem to understand that the rear wheels are critical to vehicle stability on a fwdcar.
