AllOutZX2 Bench Racing I would have to agree with everyone here, but on the track is a different monster... how many passes have you made down a drag strip and how many passes has the owner of the GS made down the drag strip? Sometimes Driver experience can overcome a much slower car. Reaction Time and 60Ft is where alot or races are lost.

Soooo lets avoid the Bench Racing and get out there and tell us how you did!

DEMENTED SVTF Do 2 tracks. Drag and twisties. Svt is not good dragging if stock but is amazing in the canyons.

ProSilverVT02 From a stop you'll get burned off the line, thanks to first gear bog (unless you have Tom's Tune, which eliminates most of the bog), but you will pass close to top end of second gear.

(I know you said drag-racing, but this is for peace of mind)

From a roll (25-35MPH) you'll pull away almost instantly.

Just make sure its not a 4G GT, because you won't touch it, even if you're driving downhill with a tail wind.

Drag Reference Experience /// (3) 4G Eclipse GS's and (2) 4G GT's
(All Eclipse's were stock, except one GT had Intake and Exhaust)
(I was running Tom's Tune, AEM CAI, and Borla Catback.)
