    Awesome. There's not enough 3rd gen Eclipse GS's on the road trying to be fast...

    One point in his favor is he doesn't appear to be into the whole "appearance over performance" camp so there's hope that he'll do it right.

    Still not what I would have chosen, but eh; not my money.

    I used to want a 1G (post-90) GSX/TSI, but never gave in.. MY buddy has 3 '91 GVR4s, and I think one of them runs. I can't recall 2 running, simultaneously.

    I'd still love to own a late model 2nd Gen Eclipse GSX. Fantastic looking car (IMO), 4G63 motor, AWD, turbo, EXTREMELY mod friendly...

    I realize they might not be the most... reliable... cars on the road today, but that doesn't stop me from wanting one.

    Luckily I've had zero problems with the Evo since I got it back in April of '06.

    the car had its first kill in a long time last night. and cannibalism is good! i took the ride out to the local cruise spot to see who was out. but with a 60% chance of severe thunderstorms i didn't expect to see much. so i get there make a lap around the usual spots. and i catch a pair of nsrt4s pulling out of a car wash. so i follow. and about 3 miles later the road clears and the 2 guys in front go for a spirited drive you could say from 40ish. both seem to be fairly quick to the point where my delayed reaction to give chase had me at full throttle for awhile to catch up. but i did have to let off to avoid running the 2 of them over.

    we all pull over at a mc'ds and shoot the bs for awhile. i find out that both of them are big turbo cars. a silver one is a built bottom end,stock head with a gt40 turbo at 17psi on pump. it is slightly slower then the red one next to it that is a stock motor,60trim 24psi pump gas car. both are tuned with a DTEC/gameboy. the silver one asks the red one to race me (i forget the guys names shortly after meeting them) i said sure but my turbo is really laggy from 40 and there is a great chance it'll break up around 6k. (it happens 1/10 times were still working on that) he said no problem just take off whenever you want and i'll give chase. sounds cool enough.

    so we lined up at 40, he started the beep-off on the first one i floor it... he waits for the 2 more and hits it. while im still waiting on mine to come alive. (started at 3100 and have wait till 4200) i hear his come on boost and he starts to go around me. then mine comes alive. somehow the stars align and the thing pulls strait to 7500, i shift into 3rd and it stays together again and i drive around him like it was nothing. we exchanged props and went our separate ways. after two years getting back in the game was great and what a rush.


    cliff notes - raced 2 big turbo nsrts on pump gas and walked all over both of them on low boost.
