I was behind this guy for about 4 lights & then I had the chance to get next to him. He looked over & revved his engine & I'm thinking that my fiance is sleeping in the passenger seat... I can take this guy.... So I revved the tC... the light turns green & we both take off... I took him off the line & then it happens..........


My fiance wasn't sleeping enough.... All I hear is "I DON'T THINK SO!!" I did get the guy off the line though & then we were neck & neck half way to the next light when I got busted by "The Fiance"... almost as bad as the police! Oh well... maybe next time when she's not in the car. I really hope she doesn't read this!

Okay my friend has gsx as you have seen my pics. I don't want to say much until we got to the drag strip, but he never never i repeat never pulled on me. Everytime we race from the line he would get smoked by me. So we race when moving. last weekend we were going 30 mph in 2nd gears. He got lil ahead of me with about his fat ass bumper ( 10 inches ) and i shifter 3rd and that was it for that night. He always comes up with his BOV leaking from 9 psi to 6 psi. We are about to find out if he is really leaking this weekend. But again i'm not really saying i can take him until we go to the drag strip, but i'm sure i cant take him from stop anytime. And again thats an eclipse 2nd gen gsx and my friend know how to drive stick and he know how to launch an all-wheel-drive car. He had his car for like 3 years now and he is saleing it for gs-t so he can smoke me.

There is something very wrong with that car. It should leave you for dead easily.

BS? Maybe not. Sick GSX? Absolutely.

Lots of Honda guys think they've killed TT Supras only to find out the guy had a boost leak from an intake hose that popped off. When the hose goes back and gets properly tightened, they get a real education about what speed is.

I bet this guy has a serious boost leak.

BTW a GSX with a serious boost leak <<<<<<tC.

TT Supra w/serious boost leak <<<<lots of cars. AMHIK.

those older eclipses had huge problems with the stock BOV. Leaked like a mofo, mine used to whistle when I rev'ed the engine it was losing so much boost.

Well this is the thing. Hes not that slow as you guys think. My other friend owns Audi A6 2.7T (AT) and everytime they race the gsx wins by a car or half. Maybe i have hidden factory turbo.
We got to check his car for boost leak this weekend and we will go to the track at great lakes probly the weekend after the Elmhurst show.

ok first of all i know for a fact that there is no way possible for a good running stock gsx to loose to a tc. i have plenty of friends that have owned or still own turbo eclipses and talons 2wd and awd. a stock gsx should be running 14psi from the factory. so if his car is only hitting 9psi then something is wrong with it or he is just playing with your emotions and not giving the car full throttle or something. a stock gsx runs atleast a full second faster in the quarter then a tc does. thats even with a good driver in the tc.

Yes maybe it was a Integra GSR, or a really big ricer with a eclipse with gsr lettering. LOL One more thing even if there is boost leak the car would be running all motor, which would still beat a tc.

no such thing as a gs-r eclipse. and i'm gonna call bs on you taking a gsx off the line. apparently your friend DOESN'T know how to drive a stick or launch an awd car. i murder any fwd car from a stop in my tsi. i seriously doubt your TC can take it from roll, let alone a dig. i wanna see a vid.
