I ran into one of those new Eclipse GT's today. It had that new different looking body style.
I didn't know they were out yet?
Well we lined up at a red light. We both left the line kind of slow and then nailed the gas in first gear. He tried hard to keep up with me but couldn't hang at all. I had about two cars on him by the second gear shift. By the time I shifted into 3rd gear I had at least 4-5 cars. I ended up at least 6 cars (hard to tell at that distance) in front of him by the time he gave up around 75 - 80mph or so.
I was not impressed at all. The mags say they are just as fast as an SRT-4 in the 1/4 mile. They are suppose to run 14s @ 100mph. I find that hard to believe but who knows.
First 06 Eclipse GT to see on the road and I get a race. What luck
