    WRX stage 2 vs heavily modded 99 eclipse turbo

    ran into a neon green turbo eclipse the other day. I saw a FMIC and heard a BOV, I rolled up to him looked over and he started revving, well I said the obvious "What you got?" and he replied "$6,000 of mods that puts me in the 12s" OH really, I thought, so without a thought I said, cool and the light was green and we where off.

    I'm thinkin, there's no way I can match this 12 second car to my 13 second car, after all why would someone lie about their car and then attempt to own me? Wow i thought this was gonna be embarrassing and I should just pull over and throw my keys, save my doors from being blown off. So we were off and all the way to redline in first I kept up to the monster of a car it was, well, actually it was around 2500 rpms that i began pulling and by 5000 I was almost a car length in front, hit red, shifted and on to 2nd gear. Well maybe the AWD gave me some advantage so I'll give him that, with that being a 12 second car, he's gonna catch up for sure. Well he did, he caught up to where I was when I shifted into second, only problem was that I had already left that point and was several car lengths further and so on and so on ... WELL to make it all short, came to another red light and he catchs up, I look over and said, Dude, you need to go beat someone up cause they lied to you about you running 12 seconds in the 1/4, I told him also that if he needed a good lawyer to sue the track for misinformation that I knew a couple ppl, and that was that.

    Yeah I had a simmlar thing happen to me, this guy with a nice looking eclipse was telling evey one he ran 12's. My friends were all telling me it ran 12's. On night we ended up racing. My car was mostly stock and my best run was like 14.2. We lined up and I walked him, he said he wasn't ready. So we lined up again, again I walked him like 4-5 or more cars. He did spin bad but once he stopped he wasn't realling my in at all. I herd he has broke a rod and in planning on dropping a modded evo motor in it. I'll belive it when I see it.

    I'll bet that guy never ran his car at the track,he just figured with his 6K worth of mods it should run 12's. It was nice of you to teach him a lesson.

    stoplight warrior: I was all about the eclipse back when I saw the brand new 1997's, I really wanted that car i thought it was the shizzy. THe 99s were the last year for the body style and its styling cues are IMHO pretty slick. The body style carries some of the cues of the later style, and this car looked like it had the better styling cues. Either way, I dont mind losing, it just drives me to do more. But it was a ridiculous race, I dont like racing cars that are not up to par, its a wasted ticket

    ah 310hp, easily:

    TXS TBE catless w/RFL-ti
    Perrin Upipe
    Perrin Pulley
    Perrin IC hoses
    Perrin air filter
    Rallitek silencer delete
    Cobb Stage 2 at 93oct

    suspension,
    Cusco strut bars
    Perrin sway bars
    perrin mounts
    perrin endlinks

    this spring:
    -200lbs.
    new Rota Tarmac II bronze
    Bridgestone s-03
    Tein springs
    harness bar
    sparco harness
    nasa designed CO2 IC cooling (my dad's friend from nasa, hes got an 02 wrx)
    Maybe gimmiegears WRC wing.

    The WHP on the cobb is almost the same as the TXS, which rates its stage 2 w/ pulley, chip, exhaust, and up pipe at 309hp, I have a little bit more... thus 310hp.

    And now that I've done all that crazy stuff, im going to save this link incase someone else asks.

    happy hunting!
