    As with my G35, it probably doesn't FEEL as fast because of a linear torque curve.
    Yep...thats the model...the numbers are impressive, but thats paper racing IMO...and like I said, the car is definitely quick, just not as quick as WRX's I've been in. Those power numbers also come pretty late in the power band too...

    Ray...since when do you have a G35?

    For a while back in 2005, I had an '05 black G35c 6-speed. Sometimes I miss it. I decided to save more towards retirement/kids' edumication, and got rid of it to free up funds.

    While we're mag racing, I'm seeing 99mph trap speeds for the Eclipse. Pretty respectable, if you asked me.....which you didn't, of course.

    Those are pretty good traps...It is right up there with a WRX on a good run...

    I imagine the 60ft time is on the slower side though...

    I know you aren't Donnie, but did you find a quarter mile time? I don't feel like googling

    I wouldn't race because:

    1) It is not good to do so in the break-in period

    2) He will win if you don't launch hard and redline it.
