Default I need an answer to this question....

I just raced a 97-99 Eclipse GS-T, 5 speed, I have an auto WRX....even with the auto I still should have beat him bad shouldnt I???? We were basically neck and neck the whole race. I don't understand it, I figured I would kill Eclipses even with my auto. I did beat a new Stratus pretty bad earlier today though.

GST's run high 14's low 15's stock. From a roll, it would be even.

Eclipse GST or GSX can't run high 13's with just a MBC or EBC. I havent seen one yet.

Your auto WRX would be neck to neck with a GST if the GST was a stick. Now if the GST was also an auto, then you should have beat him by a car two or so forth.

I have raced many GST/GSX's and they dont even stand a chance. I would say a good 10 car dust. My cousin has a 96 Eclipse GSX and he cant believe he got dusted so bad(he is running 15psi boost). At the time of him and me racing, I was stock.

5 speed noted... 210 HP

There's some free mods that can get the extra boost in the Eclipse and I agree, it's a dead even race, stock vs. stock.

You gotta watch out for those DSM's. They don't take much to become really fast. I have a friend with a '96 talon. With only a couple grand they'll see 12's in the quarter.
