seen a new eclipse riding down the freeway... i doubt it was broken in at all, but the guy was willing so we did a 50-120~ roll and couldn't do anymore because we ran into traffic.. those things are alot slower than i thought. it was comparable to some of the v6 mustangs i raced... totally un-impressed.. i had a few cars on him when i shut down


those cars are f'n nice looking though. they look so much better in person than in those dumb commercials, and silver makes them look even better. i don't know what type it was, i never seen the badges on the rear of it, that's why this wasn't one of those... "damn i blew this guy away" posts(don't want to brag about beating a slow car lol).... wish i could have seen the interior on it as well.. mitsu did a great job on the body style of those cars

yeah the new 'clipse is almost as bad of a pile as the 3rd gen GS, GT snd GTS....and thats bad...i think the word "platform" has been all but forgotten by car companies...funny considering the rise of the aftermarket...market

Allow myself to introduce.....myself.
Yeah, I have to agree the Eclipse looks kinda ricer-bubbly. There's a guy over here that turbo'd the hell out of one of the older models and STILL could only manage 14s. Before the engine went.

Subtract one model year from your current car and that's what I drive.

they have decent horsepower, but they are also a fat pig, I believe they
are around 3800lbs. :eek:

I am willing to bet that the one you raced was the SOHC 4 banger. The GTs are running low 14s in the magazines. That being said the average driver should be atleast able to pull off a mid to high 14 second pass. If it had been a GT the race would have been much closer. The GT badge is on the back passenger side.

I like the new Eclipse and think it is a solid car. First thing I would do to it is lower that thing cause me and my buddy looked at some at the dealership and I could fit 1 fist and 1 finger in the front fender well. In the back I could fit 1 fist.

My neighbor has one...i'm not impressed at all. I think they are very ugly. It looks like a corssfire raped an audi tt. They should of kept the 4g63 turbo platform.

I said it before in another thread. No AWD + No turbo 4G63 = lame.

I love that commercial where all the imports bow down to the new eclipse and the guy says something like "it demands respect." Lmao.
