    Had a little fun last night

    I was finally able to take the eclipse out for the first time last night on the new setup. Went better than I thought it would but my wheel spin is a b#tch. Met over at robins last night and a group of us went out cruising. Met alot of cool guys over at 6hwy area. Even saw some idiot get arrested for just being a dumb ass. First race was with a evo that the owner of inline racing uses as his daily driver.I was told he was pushing around 450whp in that evo. Havin a auto really slows down my throttle response. Maybe I should delete the cruise control and see if it helps. At least i have a idea how the eclipse responds without the 50 wetshot. As soon as I get my 50 shot wet kit installed I am so looking forward to seeing the difference.

    this next race was against a red evo but this evo was sick. fully built from what I understand. Wheel spin got the best of me...lol

    This last one was against a tundra with a 150 shot. I didnt expect to race this guy but he just wanted to have alittle fun. I gave him a huge head start just to try and make it even...didnt last very long.

    Yes this was in the spyder Had a great time pushing it. It was acting kinda funny for a little bit...ie.. not wanting to hold idle very good. Typical dms.

    From what people had informed me the white one was just bolt on's with a great tune. The other evo was completely built. That thing was just sick! If I could picture myself in a evo... thats how it would look and feel.

    The evo your taking about is the white one right? the owner of the red one informed me he had the motor/trans built... he was some kind of engineer if I remember correctly.

    I'm kind of embarresed to admit this but I didnt know what brake boosting was when asked about it that night. All I would do is get up to speed and then punch it... my launches were SH#T!!!!! Thats the reason why everyone I ran got such a huge jump on me. Today at work I was thinking about it and decided to try some pulls brake boosting on the way home. I droped it down to second at a 40 roll.. hit the brakes and was able to build around 10-15 psi of boost right before I launched. WOW is all I can say. No lag at all..instant acc. and boost. I was smiling ear to ear! Next time I will know what to do.. I'm pretty confident I will be able too take that red evo.
