15 car lengths sounds a little off, but beating an automatic GSX shouldn't be much of a problem.Originally posted by BobbyD
My friend has an automatic AWD turbo eclipse, the body style before the brand new one. He said he would beat me, or so he thought atleast. So we took them on the road we always go to and raced them. He did the counting, so everytime he would jump about a car on me, he started before i did, lol. But by the end of first i would be atleast all the way to his door, and then in 2nd i would start to pull away. 3rd gear would just kill him. By about 95+ i was over 10 cars ahead. Lol. We then did a rolling test, We rolled at 20 mph, and hit it, i wasted him again, by 100 i was a good 15 cars ahead. It was rather pathetic . I wasnt impressed, all his friends in their crotch rockets were laughing. Anyways, thats my exciting story of the day, peace.
