I noticed that in tests for the Stinger GT AWD, I matched MotorWeek's 13.1 sec quarter, beat C&D's 13.2 sec time, and walloped MT's abysmal 13.6 sec time.
I'm game if the last two are in need of a driver. :cool:
This was Test & Tune, I was literally surrounded by radically modified race cars including an 850 hp 1970 Chevy Nova.
As for me, I spent decades at Test & Tunes running mildly modded Fox body 5.0's. I bracket raced a few times (boring), and won my class once (pic below).
I know this is an older post, but after recently experiencing the Stinger GT brake shudder issue, I found that the bedding procedure reduced the issue considerably.
And because of traffic I was only able to do the procedure 4-5 times, so I'm guessing had I been able to do a few more the problem...
Stinger GT is plenty faster.
C&D's Sti test got them to 60 mph in 5.1 sec and the quarter in 13.6 sec@102 mph.
C&D's Stinger GT AWD test ran to 60 mph in 4.6 sec and the quarter in 13.2 sec@108 mph.
The Stinger GT RWD was even faster ...
I see you have two different posts regarding your concerns, and that your other post actually mentions the issues as being the sound system and ventilated seats.
#1 I have the base GT with the 9 speaker system and it is more than adequate, very good actually so for me it was a non issue.
Well you should've been aware that cars put out a ton of heat when you open up the hood after it's been running, so yeah, the KIA Engineers knew what they were doing and our car's not overheating is proof of that.
Time we move on from all this silly talk about "functional/non-functional" hood...
Try this, works like a charm getting water spots off my Aurora Black GT.
