for everyone that lives in houston, you all know that westheimer at 12:00 on saturday night is where you see the nicest cars in the city. Needless to say the car i raced was nothing to brag about, but the sticker price is about 9000-11000 more than what i paid for my tiburon. Anyway I am at a stoplight and a 2001 Eclipse GT pulls up next to me, and he keeps looking at me and letting off and putting on his brakes (rocking his car.) So I pull up a little further and then he points to the light, right about then the light turned green and we both took off, of course my car being a stick, had about half a car length lead withen the first hundred or so feet. If you do live in houston, you will also know that practically every cop in town is on westheimer at this time of night as well, so i didnt want to get a street racing ticket so i backed off at about 60. about the time i took my foot off the pedal the eclispe shot right past me. I am very pleased with my little car.

Oh yeah, props to KAPPdye for out-sprinting the Eclipse...and not getting a ticket. I wouldn't go against an Eclipse GT in my '02 Elantra,
unless I knew the driver was lousy or I was doing it for sh*ts and giggles...or I had a few mods. :)
