    got called out

    hey whats up guys.... im hitting the track in 2 weeks. the rumer spread around and this dude hit me up saying that he would like to run the cars for some money.... $200. the guy has an mid 90's eclipse. this thing is all wheel drive and this guy dropped money in this thing like crazy. from what i heard the car is putting about 440hp to the wheels. as for me im putting down 435hp and 398 ftlbs. i got suspension mods and 4.10s with a 6 speed. running slicks, and have not run my car at the track. i do have experience. lets see what happens......

    Well he's got more power and is lighter and awd so good luck lol! Might want to run out and slap a nitrous kit on there before the race....at least you'd have $200 off.

    That will be a tough race. Post the results though. I had a friend with a 90 or 91 Talon AWD and that thing pulled like crazy. I can't remember the turbo and what PSI he had set up. He got rid of it 5 years ago for an EVO.

    ^ If you have slicks and can hook, then the AWD really won't benefit him and AWD sucks power top end. So if you can dead even hook, I am betting you will come out on top. Either way, its a drivers race, practice launching before you go, to get some practice. And don't race him the first run of the day, get use to the track and such. Post results.

    If you can holeshot him I think you will get him, but if he rips you outta the hole then you might have a little problem trying to catch him. You didnt mention if the eclipse is manual or auto, if its an auto I think you will have him covered.

    Yeah race him and let us know the result since he could very well be full of hot air.

    I'd be wary of those DSM's, if they are running it doesn't take much to make them pretty quick. Either way good luck.

    only one way to find out, run em. hopefully he won't back out though. there was a v6 97 camaro with the only mod being a 100 shot of nitrous that wanted to race me and put cash on it, but when i showed up to race him he was nowhere to be found. hopefully the eclipse has more cojones than this jerk.

    I wouldn't run him for $200 that's for sure. If he truly has 440 AWHP and can drive you don't stand a chance. They hook off the line and he's lighter not to mention you don't know what kind of weight reduction mods on top of that he may have done. It's true a lot of import guys talk big shit and either don't have what they say or can't drive. Heck plenty of domestic guys fall into that categroy too. I'd race him for fun for sure but I think I'd save my $200 for something else.
