Went to meet a guy to sell him something and decided to setup a run. He's been wanting to run his 07 Scion tC (160hp) against mah Tibbay (172hp) for a while now. I told a another buddy of mine and he wanted to bring out his new DD to hav fun; an 07 Saturn Aura XR (254hp), very nice car.
All 3 cars are bone-to-tha-muthafkn-stock as can be. Hopefully I'll be able to mod the Tib in the near future though. In case you can't tell from the vid the Aura stays even with me from a 25mph roll (I pull 1/2 car a head when we do a 30mph) and then pulls me by 1/2-1 car above 90mph. I also beat the tC in every scenario, even the last one where I had a bad launch. Enjoy the video (and yes that song was put in there for shits and grins cuz these aren't 800hp Supras racing so they don't deserve cool music).

Q: Any problems with the cops?
A: No problems with the Exhaust.
Q: Where did you get the Exhaust? How
much did it cost?

mint condition) from a forum member at the above URL, set me back around
$250 shipped. I think I've seen them on eBay/Amazon around $350
Q: How much did it cost to set the Exhaust (install it)?

charge but it's a basic install with jack stands and air tools.

A: It was a direct bolt on with no alterations necessary. Perfect fitment!
Q: What tail lights do you have, where can I get them, etc...?

A: The bumper is an AIT GT-Spec bumper (Zefiro Ronda knockoff). Purchased
used from a local member of the forums. Google is your friend here, they
can be found numerous places online. Someone rear-ended me and I got a
replacement straight from AIT, courtesy of the D-bags insurance.
Q: Was the bumper silver when you got it, or did you have to color match
A: Bought new they come primered only, you will have to get them color

2008 Hyundai Tiburon VS 2010 Genesis Coupe In Depth Review and Comparison, Start Up, and Exhausts
Btw, for anyone wondering, I couldn't find a GT to compare unfortunately,
so I had to take what I could get. Just about everything you would like to
know about the Genesis and the Tiburon, RWD VS FWD, the genesis is an all
new model not related to the Tiburon, it may be the new Hyundai Coupe, but
it did not "replace" the Tiburon as quoted by Hyundai. (Credit 85ZingoGTR)
The Genesis Coupe is larger by 10 inches in comparison to the Tiburon.
Also, the Tiburon is a front wheel drive car targeted towards cars like
Mitsubishi Eclipse and Toyota Celica while the Genesis Coupe was made to
target cars like the Mustang and 370Z. Hyundai plans on
introducing the Veloster to replace the Tiburon and join its larger Genesis
Coupe brother. My main purpose is to show the efforts and strides that
Hyundai has taken for their coupes and performance cars in just a few short
years, not necessarily comparing generations of the same model, which like
I said before, they are not. In this video I give a full in depth tour
review of the 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring and the 2008 Tiburon. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of these
cars while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicles themselves. I also show the engines and the
details of them, start them up and see how they sound under acceleration. A
thorough tour/review of these cars designed to give others a greater
overall appreciation of the vehicles.
