Exclamation I only lost by half a car length to a.....

Today I was comming home from work and I stopped at a light (on Bloomfield ave for those who know the area), and a new eclipse pulled up next to me, I looked over and it was a young kid. I looked at the fender and it said V6, so I said to myself hmmm I wonder how fast it is. So we are sitting at the light and he starts to creep up on the light, so I knew he wanted a piece, but I wasnt gonna give it to him at first. I thought maybe he was just creeping up. So the light turned green and he took off, (and in that split second from the time the light went from red to green I said, o what the hell). He got a tiny jump on me, I could here him hammering first gear, I wasnt that far behind, I could see his passenger door as he slammed second and broke his tires loose, as I was also shifting second, It messed me up I started laughing when his tires chirped, cause he was trying so hard to desamate me. I didnt even ride out first. I shifted at lke 5 grand, His balls must have shrank, cause when I hit third gear all I saw was his headlights in my mirror. So all in all a little fun, He got the jump on me, but couldnt hang with the big dog! . We just drove normally the rest of the way.

I know why he beat me off the line too, I just rotated my tires at work, and I forgot to adjust the tire psi, so I was running 29 in the front and 32 in the rear that must have been it!J/K, I also forget to put the vtec sticker on, take my healight out, and my car was dirty blah , sorry im bored.

Anyway the RS I think has descent speed to run that close to a 3.0 v6, its a 3.0 in the eclipse right?

That's funny, cause I just won by half a car length to a VW GTI w/ a cam, headers, and other mods w/ my virtually stock RS Impreza (then beat a Scirocco)
I see what you mean tho. The key is knowing who you can play w/ and who you shouldn't - remember your engine's advantage is its torque and your AWD; not its raw muscle.

Subie Chick -

I've got a Dub VR6, and have both beaten and lost to Impreza's. The difference is traction. When the fronts hook up, I win. When they spin, I lose.

Heck, in the rain and snow, I lose to just about everything.

Come onnnn WRX!!!

LOL JGard18!

As the years drag on, the probes become more and more "individualistic". Every one of them is now tinted with 17" shoes, and a coffee can tailpipe.

In the '90s, the drivers of '70s camaros used to scare me. Now it is the probe drivers!
