Maximus: 2002 Hyundai Accent CDX
Displacement: 1.5 L
Fuel type: gasoline
Transmission: manual
Curb weight: 2227 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0.34
Frontal area: 21.31 sq.ft.
Instrumentation: ScanGauge
Description: At an estimate, the car produces somewhere in the region of 95-100bhp and around 105-110ft/lbs torque, and weighs around a tonne before I get in it.

I've owned the car since the summer of 2010 and it's my first and only car.

I try and take good care of it and keep it regularly serviced (I'm a believer in preventative maintenance!).

The car is mildy modified for better driveability with the following:

- SRI setup with heatshield and 2 cold air feeds

- Stainless cat-back exhaust

- Remapped

- Lowered

- 15x7 lightweightish (~7kg) rims on 195/45 tyres
Build Thread:
Current Mods: - Around 50% of bulbs replaced with LEDs

- Smaller, low profile wipers placed as low down on the windscreen as possible

- Moderatel overinflated tyres ~36psi

- Scangauge II fitted

- Remapped for more low to mid-range power and torque

- Lowered by around 30mm

- Not a mod but I tend to only put 10-20 litres of petrol in at a time to keep weight down

- Also not a mod but I've managed to keep my weigh at around 75-80kg which is a good 10-15 less than when I first signed up

Planned Mods: - More LED conversions

- Fit DRLs for low level light situations (negate need to use headlights)

- Remove mudflaps

- Custom front bumper with grille blocks and front lip

- Custom rear bumper with air release holes and diffuser fins

- Add undertrays where possible

- Sideskirts

- DTM cup mirrors

- A spoiler of some kind to aid seperation

- Experiment with vortex generators

- Volt stabilizer

- Smaller, lighter alloys that safely allow a drop back to 185mm tyres

- Partial stripping of interior for weight reduction

- Replacement parts for weight reduction (where plausible/sensible)

- Rear wiper delete

- Power steering delete

- A/C delete

- Lightweight battery
