Default Yet another "Who would win"

Ok my friend has a 2000 Hyundai Sonata with the 4 cyl engine. The specs dont compare, and i dont think the race would either (I think my 225lb-ft wouldnt compare). He thinks that even though he has less power the weight difference would make up for that. (Oh, and he says he loves the sound of his 4cyl over ANY 6cyl, what a weirdo....) I have to check in to tha "knowledge base" (here) before i am gonna try to race tho. Cause if im looking for possible loss i cant race him... Hes not really a good winner (there is no humility in him at all)... and hes an even worse looser (thats why i wanna beat him... )

Well, I don't know about the 2000'*, but the 2003'* (which I would guess are probably a little quicker if anything) do the quarter mile in 18.1 seconds. If that is the case for the 2000, you will completely rape it. Its only 138hp, 147lb.ft., it would have to be hella light to beat your Bonnie with that kind of power.

Here'* a quote from Leno:

"Did anyone see the luge? It'* a 3 foot long little vehicle that has no room, has to be pushed to get started and only goes downhill. Here in America we call that a Hyundai."

Come on guys. The Hyundai is an good quality vehicle. And the price is affodable for all the features that come standard with it. I mean, geez it'* cheaper than a Honda, who could ask for a more reliable, quality vehicle than that?
