Hcd (Hyundai California Design) has put out some awesome looking cars, I think their design studio is in San Diego but don't Quote me. Those guys have come a long way in 20 years.

Check out the Hellion -

One of my favorite cars in Gran Turismo 4 is the HCD 6, it reminds me of a Korean Batmobile. Test drive one today!

Eh, I don't like them... and can't stand people that race their Tibbys at the stoplight. They're the only car I think looks decent, but geez.. they're just slow.

I won't argue that, & I have a '96 Geo tracker (it has a killer stereo).

I kinda raced a 3.5 dodge charger today. I'm surprised, I was actually ahead until about 30, then he started to pull on me. Either my car got a lot of power I didn't know about, or those things are slow.

Actually I was kidding about the not knowing about the race part. Apparently it was a 2.7 charger. Still, that brand new car almost got beat by a 6 year old Taurus that isn't running well.

The Tauruses aren't so bad, even the 3.0s move along. The 3.8s use the same engine as my Mustang so if wanted to do
a little work, the parts are there. The 3.8s are also packed in pretty tight & can be a bitch to work on.

I saw a SHO Taurus the other day... it was black, pretty nice condition. I don't like them, but apparently they're quick.

The last ones had a 3.4 V8. Think I'd rather work on a 3.8 again.

EDIT: PS, thanks for the rep.

3.4L V8? o.O Sounds kinda small.

You should see the displacement on some of the older Formula cars, under 3.0.

Resume forthcoming. Just need to sort my digital camera. Authorities can neither confirm nor deny the validity of any photos. :ph34r:

Not to be a pitchman, have you tried Firefox?

The 3.4V8s had a problem where the camshafts would "walk" or "spin" and the engine would be destroyed. If I ever had a 3.8 Taurus, I'd get the kit that's is supposed to be available for the 3.8 and I'd stroke it to a 4.2

Yeah, it is a small V8

Don't the new F1 cars have like a 2.5v8?


And I've been resurfacing my right front rotor somewhat for the past two hours and trying to figure out how to operate a tierod so I can adjust the toe

Yeah,, I remember reading somewhere they used to run a 156 ci (about 2.4 L) in Indy cars. It was a de-stroked Ford 289/302 V8. They did it so they would rev a lot higher.

Look, Grampa's Been playing w/ the internet again...

http://www.indymotor...series.htm#tech

Wonder if that 3.0 v10 will fit in a Taurus.

The metric thing is a courtesy to people not familiar with Cubic inches. For some reason, my mind automatically converts
them, probably has to do w/ getting knocked in the head w/ a big steel bar.

Now, where did I leave my Grampa juice.....

EDIT: the later Taurus 3.0s were DOHC, give my pushrod 3.8 a fair fight.

96-05 had a 3.0pushrod standard and a 3.0DOHC standard. They killed the DOHC for 06 and 07.

And it's more a matter of transmissions, I'm sure the 3.8 would be quicker if it were mated to the newer (yet similar) transaxles.

I got my alignment done in the driveway! Doesn't pull to the right or wonder that much.

Score one for Yankee Ingenuity. Got the right tools or just good w/ level & tape measure?

Sounds like you know a little about the Blue Oval.
