You have to remember, the Elantra = economy car. Miata = sports car. It's like comparing my Z51 vette's steering to the Elantra. Different worlds, meant for different things.

Compare it to a '91 Festiva with "monster" 185/60R13 sticky tires and MANUAL steering. smile.gif

Or a 94 Swift GT with manny steering. I think that car had the slowest steering rack I've ever had! Ain't nothing like crossing your arms trying to negotiate a 45ft slalom!

Indeed. Or waiting for the suspension to catch up so you can change directions again.

I fixed the suspension issue (450lb frt springs, 550 rear on a 1780lb car), but that slow rack killed me.

Wasn't an option for me in H Stock. smile.gif I did like the Supertrapp on the car, though. Ran it all summer long.

Autocross #2... signed up for two heats and got a very decent 14 runs yesterday. I seem to remember a 38.2 run but I only see half the runs listed; maybe only one heat counts towards the score? As shown, I started at 41.5 and ended at 38.95. On dry asphalt I feel the differences are larger. The best guys broke under 34 seconds (350Z, Corvettes, even a Lotus Exige and a turbocharged Miata). My times were firmly in Rookie-Land, or Economy-Car-Land with the Ford Focus (40.54), Mazdaspeed3 (38.35) and 1989 Opel Kadet (38.04!).

I'm realizing I can't keep doing this with all-season tires. Nobody else is on all-seasons. They all use the barely-street-legal racing / summer UHP tires with treadwear of like 100.

Launch was a rolling start into a tight first slalom turn to discourage clutch abuse.
Hear that stock intake work with that stock exhaust... the roar of 140 135hp.

Tire sidewall? What tire sidewall? This was probably at 40psi. I bumped it to 48 after I saw how far it was rolling still.

We have lift-off!

Indeed. That is the correct cornering attitude. Now we need to see white smoke pouring from the inside front wheel well. biggrin.gif
