Strange. I have 2 Hyundai's and have done nothing but oil changes and tire replacement in 4 years. The Japanese are really regretting giving the Koreans those tours of their auto plants.

mike neal in the far lane.  back when we were running our team competing in top sportsman pro modified IHRA events he would run this thing in our same class.   this particular pass he made is short track 1/8 mile racing and he carried the front wheels clear thru the finish line.   he has balls the size of church bells as i would have aborted that run as soon as i made the second gear change :)

I love drag racing! As a kid I saw my first race in 1970 (My dad worked the on the Ambulance crew)... I had a hard on for Jungle Pam!!! Fuel altered's (Wild Willy Borsch) top fuel (Garlits) and FC's (The Snake and the Mongoose)... Pro Stock. Miss all the old school drivers and fire burnouts!

I envy you... I did the Wed night drags a few times for street racers, just to get a feel of what it might be like. During the Car Craft Nationals I made it to the finals in my El Camino SS... handicap start. I was up against a pro street Camero,  and as I got near the line I could not see him in my mirrors, or hear him... I tapped the brakes so not to break out and then I see a flash of red as he flies by me... my friends never let me hear the end of it!
