    This may or may have not been posted before, so I'm sorry if someone beat me to it. This is just something super cool for us Colorado folk, and everyone who loves motorsports and the rally world. I can't believe this 2WD Hyundai made it up that climb in.... well, watch and find out

    Yea and an elevation climb of 4700ft? Pikes Peak is one of our many 14,000ft mountains here in Colorado. They hold annual races there

    Only 2 minutes off the overall record, (I think someone did it in just a click over 10 minutes) not bad for a 2wd! I did like it better when there was less tarmac.

    Yea, of course it's no Suzuki Escudo or anything, but it really impressed me for a car that is 2WD and relatively new on the car scene. I'm not sure there's much aftermarket support for that car yet, but I swear I heard a turbo..... lol

    yea it was definitely turbo'd, and with how that car is built and tuned, its going to be pretty much all custom fabricated, no need for a large aftermarket following yet.
