tj0; You can't be serious? It's a KIA, for God's sake. Just drive it. Keep the rpms down. If the timing belt breaks, it's over. Period. If you want a 'race' car, buy one. Oh, and that tomatoe can sized muffler doesn't do anything but annoy the neighbors.

I also agree with Loren. It's a KIA. If you want it to go faster, get a bigger rubber band.

It's a nice place to visit but you wouldn't want to live there. I'm at the closest point to the US. West bank, Grand Bahama is 55 miles due east from me. Our boats head over there to fish a lot. The fishing is awesome over there.

I have an '08 smart car that I plan on running the quarter mile with, any tips on a blower and can I run nitro methanol? What size rubber do you think I can fit on that baby?

Just check out Staples. They carry some pretty big rubber bands.

Boosting a kia's HP 15-20 horses would just about double it, wouldn't it?
