Misc      : The idea behind this car was to build a practical, legal,
            yet well performing little car. All modifications were
            done with the intention not to sacrifice long term
            durability and drivability. For example a 250 Deg cam was
            selected over a 265 deg part and a Centerforce II clutch
            was selected over the Dual-Friction for durability concerns.
            The overall result was a really fun to drive car that is
            at the same time fast, reliable and quiet enough for the
            stereo to be played at comfortable levels. The 1.8L 16V
            motor is putting out ??? hp (No access to dymometer), but
            is probably around 140hp. 0-60mph at 7.1 secs with only the
            driver using portable accelerometer. 40 - 60mph at 5.4 secs
            in top gear. MPG: Very hard driving (City/Hwy) 15/24;
            gentle driving (City/Hwy) 25/32;
            average (40%City+60%Hwy+moderate driving) 27
