    cobb 2 vs eclipse gst? gsx? Neither

    left the pizzashop with the fiancee, the three lane hwy is only 1 lane cuz of some night construction being done.....right when the 3 lanes turn to 1, a white eclipse with a body kit starts revving and it caught my attention cause there was a wooshing sound coming from his engine and his exhaust was loud. So he gives me a thumb up to my car and i return the gesture, I let him get in front of me, once traffic opened back up to 3 lanes we get up to doing about 50 and he guns it and I didnt even drop to 3rd, I just went full throttle in 4th because my fiancee doesnt like my drop and slam cause it hurts her neck,
    he was still going and i caught up to him and passed him and kept pulling hard.

    uncle bens fooled me with his mitsu, it definitely looked the part, but it wasnt.

    has this ever happened to any of you guys before?? what a waste of gas.

    It's all about the upgrades. I've raced a couple that were absolute dogs and a few that have just left me in the dust. Same for any car, though. Nice run though. I'm just jealous your fiance lets you race! I get the "HONEY!" and a punch in the shoulder whenever I try to race with my wife in the car.

    Hehe I can't even bring the car above 3500rpm with my woman in the car. The other day the turbo spooled up and pushed her back in the seat and I got the 3rd degree.

    dunno put a big 16g on a gst with a fmic and support upgrades probably cost around 4k at most and you can trap around 113 or so. Gsx's will run mid to high 12's pretty easily. Id say there awesome cars. Just not in stock form because t25's are garbage.
