    JDM STI vs Turbo Eclipse

    Went to see the Chronicles of Rid**** tonight at the 12am showing. It let out and we headed to the parking lot, went on our way and I noticed a black eclipse with some aero mods etc. So I drive normally and get to where I need to turn, he of course turns the opposite direction.

    Well my passengers urged me to pursue, and I gave in as usual. I pull along his side in 3rd gear and wait for a nice opening.

    First, I had 3 passengers other then myself, and he had one. Not sure what his mods were though, but I could hear his turbo, and he had an exhaust as well.

    So back to where I left off, were coasting in third and im around 5k, I give a little blip to see if hes interested, and he replied with a blip of his own. So I went for it and he did as well. We went up to 5th and I had a car length on him and was slightly pulling, all in all a good race and he gave a thumbs up and I returned the gesture.

    He must've had a lot done to that car to keep up with you like that even with the extra weight in your car.

    I have a friend who's got a GS-T with intake and exhaust and it's alright I guess...I don't think my stock Rex would have any problem with it though from a dig or roll.

    Its a V8 STi from Japan... Hence he has all the mods that would make him one at least.
