my parents just gave me there hyundai elantra gls 5-speed so i haven't had any time (or skrilla <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>) to do anything to it but a custom exhaust and paint the interior and a few exterior parts. anyways my roomate has a 2002 eclipse 1.8L single overhead and just thinks it's the greatest thing ever. so one day i let him know that there are a lot of better cars he could have got for the 20 g's he spent. so he starts telling me that he'll smoke me anyday. we go out to a back road where people always race. on the way out there i'm thinkin yeah he'll prolly beat me but it's not gonna be a big deal. we line it up and go. we stayed about even through first but when i threw it in second i took about a half a car lenth stayed even for a while and than i just started walkin. i had him by about 4 car lenghts at only 90mph so i figured i'd shut it down and give him another try. i was expecting him to give some excuses but instead he laughed and said "what the fvck" so we ran it again. same results except he had a 1/2 car lead in first cuz my dumbass roasted the tires too long. i ended up beating him by about 1 1/2 cars this time....shuting it down around 110mph. anyways i was just wondering if that should have happened or if he just can't drive. i don't know the stat's on the stock eclipse's but i do know i'd be pissed as hell if i just spent all that money on a car and got beat by a sedan.

Is the Eclipse stick or automatic?

oh yeah i knew i would leave something out......it's a stick.....i know it's 147 hp but prolly weights a lot more than my car. oh yeah my roomate aka driving miss daisy, says that i didn beat him cuz he isn't used to his car and by the time he gets used to it he'll beat me. i'm gonna ask him to let me drive it and him drive my car and see who wins.
