Eh... pretty close. My buddy had that generation of Eclipse GT and I beat him a few times and he beat me a few times. Probably mostly due to the fact that he sucked at shifting. :(

Are you serious? That seems so shady... I personally would never do that just to try and win a race. If you need to win that bad, spend some money and get some mods...

I think that you have a good chance. Eclipse are slow, especially those models. I beat a couple of them when I drove my sister's stock 91 Integra LS....what a waste of metal...

Lol this thread is funny. you guys are actually debating between an is and a eclipse lmao. i havent raced any eclipse's lately so i cant compare, i raced bmw 325i's and some other bmws auddi TT, srt 4, I know most cars are quick than mine but it comes down to driver skill 95% of the time on your daily commute. So leave the eclipse alone and race something with a challenge

oh ok the eshift in my opinion has a slow take off. i assume u will be using the eshift for the race and u'll be brake boosting. good luck
