Friday Night "Street" challenge.
Racing trailer queens at Richmond Dragway's so-called "street" event again.
Making a few passes with the Hyundai Elantra to illustrate a point.
Someone asked about timeslips recently and I wanted to show one of the
types of information you can gain from examining what's on it. Information
about yourself, and your car. How well you're driving it, and how well
your equipment is working for you.
I built it up with the current video explaining the 60' time measurement
while installing compound tires. I figured that timing was appropriate
since tires have everything to do with traction and acceleration. The 60'
is all about maximizing acceleration over the 1st 60 feet of the track.
The results of running different 60' times show up differently at the end
of the track. A FWD, RWD and AWD car will exhibit different
characteristics based on contact patches, weight distribution and rotating
mass associated with each setup. But FWD is by far the most challenging to
deal with getting up out of the hole.
Mastering the launch with your car means more at the track than making all
the horsepower in
the world at once. Getting it down takes practice. Here's a quick guide
for how to set your expectations. So if drag racing is your thing...
always be convinced you could do it better, and never stop trying to get
2013 Hyundai Elantra | Frontal Oblique Offset (35% Overlap, Driver) Crash Test by NHTSA | CrashNet1
2013 Hyundai Elantra
Impact speed: 90kph/56mph at 15º Angle, 35% moderate overlap.
Head injury criteria(HIC): Driver-344, Passenger-951.
This is a new testing procedure under development by NHTSA. Oblique crashes
engaged on of the main longitudinal member and caused the occupant to move
in an oblique manner. A 2013 Hyundai Elantra was impacted on the front
driver corner by a Research Moving Deformable Barrier. The test vehicle's
mass was 1,590 kg (3,504 lbs), and the RMDB's mass was 2491 kg (5491 lbs).
Driver's side A-Pillar buckled rearward. Resulting in separation between
the top of the
door and roof sill. Windshield cracked throughout with no penetration in
the protected zone. Hood remained latched during the impact event, however
bent upwards exposing the engine compartment.
Thumbs up for the crash test dummies!
Do you think this vehicle is safe?
Do you like the test result?
More crash tests coming up every week.
