    ricing the ricers

    So last friday night on my way home from work to pick up my g/f im on I-81 outside of Martinsburg where it splits into 3 lanes... im cruising at 80 trying to get home and i come up on a this 2000ish civic (big wing, fart can, the whole shabang) and an 2006 Eclipse (stock with some tacky body graffics)... well i didnt think much of it but they have a clean shot in front of them and i see the two of them go for it... i look in the far lane... clear as day so i stomped on it and passed them both doing 130 (i estimate they were about at 100 at this point)... well i slow down and the civic ducks the next exit he sees... eclipes comes flying around me and throws his flashers on. I said to hell with that and accelerated passed him again and fliped my flashers on and flicked him off. good times heh. He didnt mess with me after that for some reason

    They've always looked like girl cars to me, kinda like the Tiburon... It's either some faggy kid or a hot chick behind the wheel.

    2001 Trans-Am 13 F-XT

    My wife had a 03 Eclipse and now has a 06 Eclipse both GS. They both are slow! The 06 is much better than what the 03 was, but still really slow. Atleast the 06 can break that one front tire loose for a second! The 06 GT's are over 100 HP better than the GS. I raced a Olds Auora with the 06 GS and got walked bad once we got to about 25. He put about 2 cars on me from 25- 35 if that tells you anything!! I couldn't stop laughing at the poor Eclipse. I'm trying to get her to trade to a GT, but no luck so far.

    Hah rode in my buddy's sister's 06 GT tonight..... my old 93 lt1 a4 formula could out run that thing. It felt so week on take off, no torque. My head didnt even get thrown back when he launched. Its got decent top end but nothing to brag about. All in all for the money I wasnt impressed at all.

    WHats funny is they gave the New Eclipse GT (06+) a big bump in power, up to 263HP, but now it weighs 3500lbs for the coupe and 3700lbs for the Spyder convertable. How you get a V6 compact car to weigh as much as a 03-04 Mustang Cobra I'll never know.

    yeah i also wondered the same thing when it came out..was somwhat exciting to hear about the 260 horse since i figured the car would be around 3000lbs or slightly less ..was shocked when i saw it was 3500 plus..wonder how they got it that heavy?

    This is Mitsubishi we're talking about here.

    The don't need any help from Dodge to built shitty cars, it just comes naturally to them.

    sweet kills! this kid i know just bought a riced out civic he thought it was pretty fast too lol. so he calls me up the other night saying he was cruising around w/ his buddy that drives an eclipse and they wanted to raise hell so we meet up and head to the safe part of town and they take off down the highway going 100-115 and im just chilling on the gas cruising along behind them.. we get to a straight away on the highway and i swing into the empty oncoming lane and throw them a quick flash of the lights and drop into 4th and tore ass right by them, hit 5th and shut down at 140 near the end of the straight, thier headlights looked like they were still near the beggining of the straight lol. we were talking later that night and the kid definatly seemed kinda bummed out. he thought he had a fast car i said dont feel bad, my car aint a fast car either
