Hope this gives some reference to the community. Rainy day though :0

As someone here has mentioned, these drastically lighter rims (by feel) than the OEM rims makes the car feel more eager.

Ebay oem hyundai 433mhz tpms sensors are working fine

Nice I like.
Question; about how much lighter is the CF hood then the steel stock one?
Unfortunately I didn't weigh the hoods but id say 20 lbs lighter. I can easily pick the cf hood with a few fingers. The oem is a bit heavier

Looks sick! What size tires are you running? Obviously 18", but what are the other dimensions?

I didn't put to much thought into it but I got these 12 x 1.5, spline, conical seat off Amazon


I ran into a problem where the inner wheel hub plastic ring thingy from the 19" oem was too small for the 18" Konig. I had to go to a rim store near by and purchase 4 for $37

When I measured mine I believe it was about 13 lbs of a difference. The stock hood wasn't the easiest to hold so it's always possible I messed up my measurement.

Nice build, love the cf hood. I am really hoping to be bale to source one from Korea (hood scoop).
Fingers crossed...

Soooo.... long story short: Shipping is WAY too much for the hood. The hood itself is $800-$900 but with shipping services charging $1000 and more for the box this large of a size I am tapping out.
Hopefully we get a CF oem hood version from a US company that can import better than we can. I am really keen on vents or air inlet in my hood.

Doesn't Gen Racer offer free shipping? If you contact Jeff, the owner he will help you out tremendously. He has great customer service and is a real nice guy! They sell the hood too.

Best regards,

Ouch! That sucks cuz I want one too and GenRacer is the next state over. I may just go pick it up instead. Put down the rear seats and bring it home! :) Not till next season though. I did my last install for the year today. Car goes away for the winter in a few weeks. I AM buying their stage one clutch though to install for next season. The DP, clutch and I am done modding it.

Br,
