    Hey everyone. My name is John and I met the love of my life, a 2006 eclipse 6 speed manual gr a year ago next month at a used car dealership. I took her down the street for a quickie and by the time I hit third gear on the freeway on ramp, I knew I was in love and paid cash for her the very next...

    It was a nice evening, around 68 degrees so I dropped the top and went for a ride with my 75 yr. old father. We had something to eat and then were driving up the highway for a mile or so just cruising along in the slow lane. A blue WRX passed on the left causually (with loud exhaust) and...

    Hey guys this was taken on my way home from school this afternoon. I understand there was danger involved in shooting the video, but I couldn't resist on a clear 70mph highway. With that being said, although it is a rush, I do not recommend this unless you're on a closed course. :bigthumb: Now...

    I've been a member for many years on here with my 06' UV blue GS, but since I haven't posted in a while, I had to re-register. Anyway, last spring I bought a beautiful black Spyder GT-P and had it shipped up from Texas. Just about everytime I take it out (nice weather car) someone always comes...

    When I start my car I hear what I can describe as a nylon strap rotating and slapping against another surface. What could this be? It's not a knocking noise and isn't affecting performance and goes away after I get into third gear. 2007 spyder gs Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
  6. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Hey everyone, I heard some bad news the other day about my Eclipse, since I'm deployed overseas, someone has been starting her up every few weeks and driving her around for a day. The last time it was started, she didn't make it around the block, there were grinding noises while alccelerating...

    Sibling rivalries are pretty frequent in my family and my older brother loves to think he better then me including his ride, for weeks on end he had been talking shit saying his car was faster than mine so i finally said lets go at it. We went from a dead stop at a traffic light and took off on...

    My buddy has an 05 VW Jetta 2.8L V6 w/ 6 speed manual. We work on our cars together and have toyed around on the street, but yesterday was the first time we've actually lined up. On our way to the gym, we hit a red light and he pulled up next to me. Immediately after the light is a large...

  12. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    So I've been paying pretty close attention trying to figure out where the issue with this is. Car is an A/T 2007 GS. At first I thought the issue was that the simple act of switching into third would lose 300rpm, but I discovered with some playing around that that's not quite the case. It's...

    On my way home from work today( little after 4:00 pm ) I pull up to the light next to a Volkswagen GTI. I figured he wouldn't race, so I didn't take off fast, plus the GT has excessive wheel spin on take off,, when the light turns green, The GTI takes off pretty quick...I get to about 3k rpm...

    I don't know if i should make a thread in racing or not... But here's how it went. I saw an early 2000s honda civic a little ways off, sporting some greenish HID's lowering springs, and a nice sporty fart can. I turned out onto the street and headed towards the highway. I see him coming up on my...

    ha so we were cruising for a min checking out each others rides. He was de-badged and painted his Honda emblems red on his black car. He was driving like an asshole prior to the initial race cause i was just cruising waiting for an open path to catch back up to him. We ended up at a light, so he...

  18. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    GT guys with bolt ons (preferably untuned but tuned is ok for this test), I need a favor. Put you're car in second gear, and get the car rolling with the clutch all the way out. Don't give it any gas, just let the car roll in second at like 5mph. Then put it straight to the floorboards HARD...

    Hi guys!! I'm new to the club and wanted to share one of the last races I did. I'm from Puerto Rico, and have found that many people think that our cars are slow or not worth racing, but that only makes my satisfaction bigger when I crush one with our power. So, the other night the local clubs...
