It looks like the M3 just took off normal to me, not raceing at all
The m3 probably knew who was going to walk away with their ego intact after that race so he didn't bother to WOT and show his tail lights to those two amatures.

hehe, thats good.

and im convinced that running up and tagging the rev limiter at the light didnt exactly help the problem either

The eclipse going WOT didn't get across the inersection even 1/4 the speed I do. So, I'd say since an M3 can blow my doors off, the M3 was accelerating as lightly as he could.

I wouldn't be so sure. The AWD Eclipse can easily take many cars out of the hole. They run 14'* stock. The same car but with FWD loses off the line, but catches up by the end of the 1/4 thanks to weight savings. They launch from redline like that... they have the traction to do it. They also break a lot of drivetrain stuff.

what happened after?

If the gsx had the proper supporting mods and tuning for the turbo it had, it should have walked the m3 easily, but the 7-bolt motors in the 2nd gen are known for their destruction as you see in the video. But those two idiot kids deserve to have that happen to them
