RedRiderr13 i have a 8.45 0-60 best as of now. im still practicing my launch. but the reason for him is because he is a co worker... I am trying to get him to button willow for a track day, but i am nervous of his driving ability in anything other than a strait line, plus strait line is alot cheaper to run. thanks guys for the feed back. im still optomistic. i have a second 2.0 block at home im considering trying to find a 2.3 head for, and then try and get crazy on that. im still not sure. i got a whole other truck project that im spending most the money on right now trying to wrap it up. that will beat the c**p outa him, but i want to prove a point in the focus, ya know?

streetfocus He doesn't have to make up a full second. He said the guy beats him by like 3 car lengths. The eclipse is probably a mid 15 second car because of the huge rims and the autotragic tranny. So, I'm gonna say, yeah, some more mods and you can be right there with him.

the eclipse has a 3.8 v6 with 263 HP, it is FWD and wieghs 3400lbs
Don't you race other cars also? If you get him great, if not move on to the next car at the line. Whats your rection time? 6o' time?

Save 1000 bucks.. Get a nitrous kit and tune... That will eat him up.. I know you want to beat him right now... But the only way ull win.. It's if he is a piss poor driver.... And oh yea.. Keep it on the track peeps!

Start before you honk. That'll do it.

streetfocus I have those mods you listed on my D20 & my car does 15.9, so if it has heavy rims and an auto, it could be a driver's race. A header and a motor mount might get you even with him.
