  1. Motorsports (Racing)
    Friday night I managed a [email protected] with a ~2.4 second 60' on my old Street tires. I can't wait to see a pass with some traction one day, hahaha. Here's a video my friend took of a run vs a Chrysler 300 Hemi. Audio is all ruined by a burnout going on https://youtu.be/GgRNB4cItx0
  2. Audio & Lighting
    On the right of the steering wheel, I have the mirror switch, traction, fog, and headlight leveling switch. They don't light up so I opened them up and they all do have a mini light except the mirror switch. I couldn't find what size they were so I ordered t3 bulbs. They don't seem to fit. Would...

    Hey guys was driving around today and randomly my Traction control light & "ASC OFF" light came on. I wasn't driving any differently and they just randomly came on. I turned the car off and back on and the lights went away. Not sure if they will come back on or not. Do y'all have any experience...

    So I bought a 2008 Eclipse SE 2.4l automatic back in September of 2015 and it has the Traction Control button on the dashboard by the fog light button. (Which everyone already knows this) When I push the button, the TCL OFF indicator does NOT show up on the odometer. I took the three screws off...

    I have a 2007 Gt Eclipse, just about the time to buy tires, the car is totally STOCK. What tires would anybody recommend? What have you use for Perfomance, and for winter. A set of summer tires and a winter/all season tires, is what I'm going for. Winter/all season tires would be set to the oem...

  10. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I've just bought a 06 GT not too long ago with 100k. I did a few 0-60 runs from a dead stop, and all of a sudden i got a check engine code of a p0302 miss fire on 2 (also traction control didnt want to turn back on after awhile). I then cleared the code and it went away and it never came back...

    My battery died today, an Optima Yellow that was installed 8/14. (This is my 4th battery in 10 years BTW— no aftermarket alarm, audio, lights, etc) I had AAA test and jump the battery, said it is extremely low and needed to be replaced. Great. Then we noticed the engine start to over-rev on its...
  12. Problem Reports
    Hello there! I've been having the traction control light come on on my 2007 GT. The car has aftermarket taillights that are LED so a load equalizer is necessary and both sides have them. I believe that the right side was done poorly though so I'm looking to take out the old load equalizer and...
  13. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I was driving to class today and out of nowhere most of my dashboard lights came on (Check Engine, Traction Control, ASC Off, etc.) simultaneously as both my Tachometer and Speedometer dropped to 0. No performance change in the car, so it's not an issue with the engine. But I was unable to see...
  14. Problem Reports
    Hey guys, I am a bit at the end of my rope with my 2006 Eclipse GT and could really use some guidance on improving it and getting it back up to speed. But my more pressing issue is that my traction control lights turn on if I am going down I-95 or I-4 at around 75mph - 80mph. They will not go...

    So apparently the 235/45 18s are hard to come by for the BF Goodrich Sport Comp - 2 and I am looking at 675 special ordered and installed. On the other hand I can get General G-max (480 A-A) all season for 640 installed. I can also get the Cooper Zeon RS3-A (500-AA-A) My stock tires are still...

    Well i brought my 06 eclipse GT 6 speed MT to the track last night for the first time, it was 39 degrees out and i had trouble getting traction. i did not want to do a huge burn out to heat my tires up as i did not want to ruin my tires. Was just trying to get a good base run as i am buying some...

    I'm shopping for winter tires to put on my 2009 Eclipse gs. I want 16 inches, narrow tires. Better traction in snow, cheaper, and i'll even stud them. I am in Quebec, and a snowboard enthousiast so i'll be driving in mountains in ice storms and blizzards. What size tire will fit? The sites I see...

    Just bought a 2007 Eclipse Spyder GT with 83,000 miles. Love the car so far. I have a few questions. 1 - My traction control button is completely gone. Where can I get another one? 2 - My faceplate dial to the AC is missing. This is the part that turns the AC fan from low to high. The...
