Default Hyundai Tiburon

this has to be one of my favorite kills ok so im at this light to turn left onto rt 2 which is the main hwy that runs near my house, and i've got 4 of my friends in the car...the one in the passenger seat was like u should race this guy as he points to the car in front of me and he reaches over and hits the horn real fast haha...so the light changes and hes in front of me so he goes ahead and i catch upto him at the next light which is red and we both approach it and b4 we stop it changes and both hit it.....and i get in front of him easily he stays behind me but keeps on trying heh....i had him so i had to turn off at the next light after this long strech of road so i got in the turning lane and slowed to a stop and the guy goes past and throws like a styrafoam cup with some drink in it at me and it hits the front of the car and he jus keeps going haha the look on his face was priceless i did that with 5 ppl in the car haha i guess thats bc he only had a 4 cylinder 2.0L 140hp/133lb-ft it was still fun

HAHA! You should've taken his plate number and turned him in, because I think he can get a ticket for throwing something from his car to yours. That is a great kill, it probably really pissed them off with you having your car full of people and all.

We raced a Tiburon GT a few months ago in the GTP before the Intercooler, so hte GTP was about 1/2 second slower in the 1/4 then it is currently. The Tiburon comes up behind us on the highway flying like 95 or 100, then slows down as he gets up next to us and matches our speed (75) because he wants to look good for his GF or Wife or whoever the hot girl in the car was. So he stays next to us and looks over like lets go, then just hits the gas a little to move forward to get our attention. We were laughing so he just nailed it. My dad was like WTF is this idiot doing. My dad nailed the gas at 75 with the guy already 2 cars in front of us, the GTP downshifted to 2nd, and we flew by him (and his hot passenger) and had 20 cars on him at 120. Needless to say, he got off at the next exit and we never saw him again. It was hilarious. I would have to say my dads best kill yet, and he has had some pretty good kills. I never would've thought we could beat somebody that bad, but it was funny. The car looked nice though, and it looked like he took good care of it.

Those Tiburon'* have a crappy transmission as well. I think the specs for them are more suited to the needs of a SUV.

Nice one!! The Tiburons are so damn ugly too. Especially the older ones. The new ones definitely look better, but they're still wimpy despite the 177hp and probably very low torque.

I'd do the same thing!! He obviously isn't fast enough to get away. If he stopped I'd throw my fist in his kidneys too!

Muslimsteel, I must have missed it somewhere, but do you have an SC in your SSE??? I read you have 205hp on your cardomain page.
