Default Eclipse Turbo Kill...

So comin home last night after going out with a buddy of mine and enjoying a trip to texas road house, and then checking out THOR (good movie btw), I'm coming home, and this Mitsubishi eclipse (01 to 03 style) keeps pullin up next to me, then slowing down, then going past me... so I said ok... at the light, its on.

The light turned red, and he wasn't paying attention, so, I let him get even after it turned green, then nailed it, pulled away by like a car and a half, then let up to let him catch me, then walked him again.

It was nice. I haven't raced in a loooong time and don't usually condone street racing, but, he just seemed like he wanted some. He bit off more than he could chew.

Not usually. So when do you condone it, whenever you feel like it. It's stupid, period. You got away with it, this time. Maybe next time you "feel" like it, some family of 4 taking a ride to the ice cream shop won't be so lucky when they pull out from a side street after looking 1/4 mile down the road and it was clear. PT Crew would like your story.

Umm, dude... the 00-05 Eclipse didn't come with a turbo. The GT models have a 200hp V6... the GTS models have 210hp. They're generally weak sauce.

Crewzin, if there was a family of four out getting ice cream at 12:40am, that would be a new one on me. Also, why dont you tell some of your police buddies that being a cop doesnt give them the privaledge to race and use their lights and sirens just to go through red lights because they dont feel like stopping...

And, maybe it wasnt turbo, I dunno, sounded like a whistle on it to me. Either way, he lost.

The family of 4 was an analogy, could have been an old lady.

If you know of any "cops" racing and using their lights and sirens (code 2) just for the sake of not feeling like stopping at red lights get their unit number. The station can tell you if they were on a response call or not.

I seriously doubt they were using code 2 for the purpose you state.

Umm, dude.. the 00-02 PT didn't come with a turbo. The N/A models have 150hp V4... mine's turbo'd, is faster than a GT, and is not weak sauce.

Moral to the story: just because something didn't come equipped from the factory doesn't mean it couldn't be added later.

I won't touch on the street racing thing-- we've all been guilty of 'spirited driving', and that's that. Some civilians cause accidents, some police officers abuse their privileges-- the end.

Agreed chris.

On a side note. Crewzin... how is it that the police cars can have pitch black window tint, but write tickets out for the same thing ?

I can see what you're getting at, but i've had an occasion where a Sheriff was being jackass. i was driving on a highway at 65 which is the posted speed and the sheriff was ridding @$$. He flashed his lights at me so i moved to the shoulder and he speed off. I was pissed.

I don't really race anymore either but then again i never get challenged. Hell just the other week i burned a Mitubishi Montero on the highway like at 9am. NOW THAT WAS STUPID. and let the stoning begin. i know, i know, i was a total @$$hole that day. but no harm no foul, thank god.

as for the turbo whistle, he could've had one of these
