Default Easy, what can I say

I've said before, Eclipses make me

But I never smoked a 2002 until now. He was at my front door for the first 2 seconds tops, then it was all in my rearview after that. And he had some of his friends in it with the top down. I wish I saw their faces when they got wasted by my 'grocery getter'..which is probably what most think about it, before I kill them.

What'* the hp and stats on these? I'm not surprised I won, but I like to know what I beat when I beat it.

Ah yes...the Weakclipse, Mitsuibishis finest attempt at everyman sports car, I toyed with a wiggie driving one on the hwy, after being clealy outdriven by me I decided that my car was to special to go wasting time with an idiot in a plastic fantasic POS.

At least it wasn't a Hundai Tiburon (spelling???). Those are just a big joke...a Hundai sports car, yeah, right.

Yeah those Tiburons are funny. One guy next to me yesterday was revving his. He was jerking ahead of me though it was a red light and cars were in front of him. I wonder why he thinks he'* so tough in that car. I have more hp than he has torque. They do get 177hp, but it'* a Hyundai...I'd rather get something that I wouldn't have to take to the shop 5 times a year.

Exactly.

The Tiburon'* are hilarious. We had one try to race us on the freeway a week or 2 before we put the Intercooler on the GTP. We both nailed the gas at 80, and by 110 we had 20+ cars on him. I don't even know how that is possible, but it was hilarious. They aren't bad looking cars, but they have no torque, and don't have the gearing to use the horsepower on the top end. I wouldn't want one, I know that.

Congrats on the Eclipse kill though!!!!

True...they think since they have a sports car, that makes them fast

I agree, the newer ones don't look bad...but the previous ones

The new ones look half decent. But they are still a Hyundai. . .

That being said my friend with a elentra wants to put a turbo in his car . . .
