Okay a while back I posted about racing a friend after work in his Sentra SpecV. Standing start and all that, but it wasn’t even close, I smoked him. He was, for what ever reason convinced that after he got traction that he would be able to take me. So I offered him a race from a roll just to squelch this little idea of his. Well This was not to happen because the following weekend I got in an accident and have been driving my wife’s 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT ever since. Finally today he wanted to race the Eclipse, and from a 20mph roll. Not to complicated of a race, there was no honk or anything, I just let him gun it and then reacted. So he got the jump on me at first, but by the top of second he was at my rear bumper and then gave up.
So that makes it WRX/Eclipse 2 – Sentra Spec V 0
On a side note, I hate the damned Eclipse. Submarines have more visibility, and after using the short throw in the rex I feel like I’m going to pull a muscle every time I shift. But, I kind of think people are a bit to harsh on them, better cars then they are given credit for. Just not a good successor to the 2nd gens.
