The Development of the Chrysler K Car
The Chrysler Corporation's K-cars were an automobile platform of compact-to-midsize cars designed to carry six adults on two bench seats and were aimed not only to replace Chrysler's nominally compact F-body Aspen and Volaré, but also to compete with intermediates like the Chevrolet Malibu and Ford Fairmont. Based on their passenger space, the K-cars were placed in the same "midsize" category by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as Chrysler's significantly larger and heavier M-body cars The K cars have been categorized as compact for their external size and small front-wheel drive layout. Technically, the K cars include only the Dodge Aries, Plymouth Reliant, second generation Chrysler LeBaron, and the Dodge 400, which used the K platform. The rest of the K-derivatives, including Chrysler's minivans, were based on the K platform with adaptations and modifications to suit vehicles of different sizes and intended usage. These vehicles had modified suspensions and were longer and heavier than the original K-cars, but all had the same basic architecture: a solid beam rear axle, independent front suspensions with MacPherson struts, and front-wheel drive (except for the AWD minivans). Sometimes, they also shared numerous internal components and trim pieces (e.g., the Reliant and first-generation Voyager). Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysler_K_platform S146
Omni vs. WRX vs. EVO
The car definitely performed well with the big dogs. Not bad for an Omni GLH.
Drag racing the Omni GLH SRT4
First time I've ever gotten a chance to see myself drag racing. These are 3 of the runs I made on Friday May 8th, 2009. I'm running 8psi of Boost, E85 for fuel, MegaSquirt is running my 2.4L DOHC motor. I REALLY have a traction problem in 1st and 2nd. The last car I ran against really threw me off, I normally baby my gas in 1st and 2nd to keep the tires connected. I couldn't hear anything but that loud thing, I was quite happy when he ran off and left me to myself. hehehe
