I thought Eclipses were supposed to be fast.
I was at a light and this new model Eclipse was behind me (I was first he was second) and he started reving his engine. So I was like ok cause I had the advantage anyway. The light changed and he could not keep up at all. Then I got caught behind a car and he came flying up behind me and started kissing my bumper. The car moved over and I gassed it and it was the same thing. He was way back like 10 car lengthes. Now I don't know which package his Eclipse was because it was behind me the whole time but from the sound when he rev'ed I will assume it was it was stock. Plus he had a couple of passengers but still I would have thought he would have kept up a little better.

The best he could have had was a 200hp V6 and those new eclipses are pretty heavy... if he had a few people in the car, he proboably canceled his advantage.

The new eclipse are pieces of $hit even the V6 isn't that impressive, The worst thing they did was getting rid of the GST and GSX eclipse, turbo was the best thing going for them.

I had a friend with a modded 93 eclipse turbo, that car was alot of fun to race, then I drove a 2001 eclipse when car shopping a month ago and wasn't really impressed although it did seem pretty cool, but it also seems everyone and their kid brother has an eclipse

yeah I test drove an eclipse a week ago. a matter of fact since I dont have my tibby yet, I test that before the tiburon the same day. and to tell you the truth the interior of the tibby was talking to me. the eclipse was like eh.... at the time they felt like same amount of power, but the clutch on the tibby was way smoother and much eaiser. the eclipse is really good, but I liked the tib better.

Mitsu trannys have no "feel" to them. Thats the biggest reason I got my accent over taking my father's '95 eclipse GS, or buying a new mirage. I like to feel the syncros working and throwing the lever into gear. The eclipse and the mirage both seem to glide into gear and have no feedback; you can't even tell if you're in gear! I also feel that they are a little bland on the inside. But thats just me.
