Killed a couple dogs, then got killed :(

First of all, i tend to get lucky with the people that try to race me. My car is loud ( as im sure yours is too ) so i attract a lot of attention but not a ton of races. I dont enjoy street racing that much anyways so it works out. Anyway, ive never had to run an srt or an SC for that matter, resulting in me winning almost every race ive participated in (plus i dont pick fights with cars i know i cant beat). ANYWAYS, killed a couple of civics, a red one and a white one, both with bean cans, both with ironing board wings.

Then the other night i met my match. An 07 GT v6 eclipse. This kid raped me. He was stock except for exhaust. Maybe somethign was off that night, but we went from a roll about 3 times and each time he had a good 2-3 lengths by the time we hit about 70. It was awful. Didnt realize those things had any kind of real power, i honestly thought i was gunna take him.

Read. Enjoy. Now get ready...bash me!

V6 GT manuals are capable of better times than SS/SCs.

WTF? that seems slow for a car with a v6 that puts out around 270ish hp... Should be closer to the time I ran of 14.2

Go look on youtube or streetfire there are quite a few SS/SC vs Eclipse videos there. When the new Eclipse came out alot of fanboys raised hell on the cobalt sites.

Truth be told SS/SC vs Eclipse V6 is a drivers race from a dig and the SS/SC will pull from a roll.
