    Raced friends 2002 eclipse GT

    I raced my friends 2002 GT 5 speed last night. It was a little wet outside, and i launched at about 5k slipin the clutch. Everytime i launched, he somehow managed to get a 1 car lead. We did 2 runs, and he would always jump ahead at the start. Anyways, by the end of first gear, i would pull and we would be even. In second gear, i would just slowly walk away, at a leasurly pace. Third gear would continue to also walk away. I only went to about 75-80 mph, because it was a little wet outside. I would always be atleast 2 cars ahead, maybe 3, and i would keep pulling, with no sign of him starting to pull. This is all with 2 bad launches. So yeah...his 5 speed manual eclipse with 200 hp definatelly wasnt slow, but it wasnt as quick as the REX . I have no mods, or anything. Hehe, just thought i would post it its my first post. Peace.

    if you didn't get him on the launch, that means you didn't launch the car at right RPM. you should try launching at 4k-4.2k rpm next time, it should help you beat him right off the line like a slingshot.

    good luck,
