the people in the new gen Eclipses think they can beat a WRX?
It would probably take a well driven, stock WRX to beat one of these on the freeway, but not too tough.
A white, new gen Eclipse wanted to see if he could get a Scooby snack but just got grass kicked in his face. This was last night on the 5 going south from before Del Mar to just before the 5-805 merge around 9pm. I was running 13lbs for the most part (I'm totally stock down to the oem filter, cept for a profec). The only time he was able to pass was because he got momentum at 80+ and took me till 110 to pass him up, at that point I was running 15psi to finally quit playing with him.
I get in more races with these guys. They must have a nice bit of torque to fool the youngin's (like Mustanks) but then just die up top....kinda like that nasty old Probe.
Anyways I've ventured over here from i-club, the drivel over there gets a little old. I've been street racing and hacking cars since the mid 80s before all this type-rice stuff...it was type-k for kraut back then when my old 1.8 Scirocco transplant terrorized the streets at 110hp (I remember I even had my imported Scirocco-GTI badge)
