blitz  : (30 May 2016 - 03:53 PM) My goal is mid 14s , but I have the feeling it will be more like u said. I wont be happy with 15.0 , but I will give my best represent the Hyundai community ;)
2000J25SP  : (30 May 2016 - 03:25 PM) I'm going to guess 15.0 1/4 mile. Hopefully I will break into the 17's after I install the p&p Beta 2 head
blitz  : (30 May 2016 - 11:56 AM) To get an idea of how the car accelerates

If you're in an accident, but only do minor damage to the front of your car, but the air bags deploy...is the car considered totaled regardless?

This didnt happen to my car. I was j/w

I don't think so, because airbags are designed to be replaced. However, that's probably down to the insurance assessor.


In Australia at least, It's deemed a regular or repairable write off if the shop repairs are worth more than the car, and a statuary write off if the structure has been compromised.

its totaled if the insurance company can save money by just paying you what the car is worth instead of fixing

For an 02 accent I'm guessing the answer will be "yes" because the value of the car will be < the cost to replace both bags and fix the front end of the car after you rearend somebody.

Then you buy it back from the ins. co. for a few hundred bucks, don't replace the airbags, replace the bumper and keep driving it. That's what one of the guys at my old job did, anyway.
