    Cobb STG 2 vs Eclipse GSX

    I was with one of my boys rolling back on 94 into chicago about 20 minutes away from the city, and I come behind this GSX w 3 people in the car. The black GSX looked ill with a monster exhaust all cocked to the side and some chromey 18's who knows what else they had done. There was a girl in the back that kept looking back at me and then talking to the driver so I was assuming that they knew what was up and we were going to run. After the traffic in front of us cleared, I hear her gun it, so I do too. We ran from 70 mph, me starting in back of the GSX, until 135 and then had to slow down because of more traffic. Up until 120 neither car was pulling on the other, keeping about a car length between us, then I started pulling very slowly and was going to pass if there wasn't a semi ahead of me in my lane. All in all it was pretty much a draw. I wish we had more room to run. I roll by the gsx and flash a peace sign and this really young looking girl smiles and gives a big thumbs up. mad respect. Sorry, not a great story, but I just love getting to race especially when it is all love at the end. How has everyone else done against the turbo eclipses? A close buddy of mine has a heavily modded one and its super fast.
    peace,
