    06 wrx tr vs 06 eclipse gt

    coming back on route 17, an eclipse gt pulled next to me. we slowed down to 40mph and went after 3 honks. at about 100 i had about a car on him. we both took the same exit and stopped at the light. exchanged a few words and we went at green light. i pulled about a car by the end of 2nd. ( he launched ) im surprised the new eclipses are so quick. i thought it would have walked all over him. seems that the new eclipses are a v6 263hp and 250something torque? im pretty impressed overall.

    Nice kill. The new Eclipses are catching a lot of people off guard. Low-mid 14's and traps in the 99-101 area.

    stock manual GT's have run 14.0 stock. not sure what the aftermarket looks like for them, but that is pretty good.

    bring back the GSX please.

    I would love to see a supercharged version of the eclipse with the EVO's AWD system. It would still be pretty ugly, but nonetheless cool.

    Thats not too bad I thought they were slower than that. A friend of mine got one it seemed like a decent car, I did't drive it though. I don't see alot of them around here for some reason.

    They do look weird though, like a pudgy 350Z.

    it may be good for what it is, but when you compare it to the GSX, its neither as fun to drive, and def has nothing over it as far as looks IMO...

    Lot of power in that car and it's very heavy. You can feel the heft when you drive it. My uncle has one and I don't like it.
