My first kill

I've never really fucked with people on the road, not my type of thing just enjoying twisty roads and going A to B normally is my thing.

I was on the freeway coming back from a girl I'm getting close with, so excited to get back and chill with my friend I'm ignoring everyone. This was about 12:30am...

A red eclipse came up to me slowly switched lanes and stayed behind me, seemingly to **** me off? Those blue ricer lights were annoying, so I let the secondaries open and the throaty sound came about as I slowly left them, then they were eventually at my side and waiting, so I just WOT and they couldn't keep up

A not recent but not the eclipse in fast n furious, the one like in the 2f2f movie. I let off the throttle alot making them fly ahead a tad then after a few seconds gunned it again, I caught right back up everytime and passed them rather quick, it was very cold out side which probably helped performance a tad.

The tires I got I'm afraid may loose grip in the cold, they wernt warmed up and theyre pretty bare slick rubber, so I let them go after they were hitting very quick speeds I don't want to be going much over 100 continuously wastin` gas and being unsafe; otherwise I was pwning them for miles !

Fun fun, love the 12a

12a's are badass! I actually enjoyed driving my 84 gsl more than my 87 FC the whole car was lighter and more nimble i miss that car!

^Ohh, mines a 85 GSL :3

The lsd n such is great, though the wider rims/semi-slick tires I got totally changed the car, it now handles way better then my fc ever did

It was a red 3G (non vertable looking) eclipse

2.4 L 140 hp (100 kW) I4
2.4L 147 hp (110 kW) I4
3.0 L 200 hp (150 kW) V6
3.0 L 210 hp (160 kW) V6

from wiki, so even with the 2.4L I have no idea how a 1.1L 90hp engine pwned them, musta only been running on a few cylinders.

It's funny that my 12a can pwn the **** out of most cars from a stop, after 2nd it doesnt really push harder then other cars but involving a turn, I couldn't imagine how hard of a corner these tires could take if I actually cornered properly (At night it's difficult in twisty roads because of the right side, dont want to let the tire go off or clip something) and most hard turns i take are right turns, left turns dont give too much slack for error.

Eclipses weigh north of 3k pound's and have around 130-140ish brake hp while the FB has if i can remember correctly 100 brake hp and 110 lb ft but weighing in around 2200lb's!

My fb had a great 1st and 2nd gear 3rd wasnt too shabby though too! If you get the carb tuned up good and throw a free flowing exhuast and hell why not an aftermarket carb and these things can fly for how old they are!

FB are also easy to work on i rebuilt the carb myself with a kit i bought from autozone took me about 2-3 hour's! I miss my car man the camaro just isnt the same even with the power it makes it just doesnt feel the same at idle or braking/turning and such.

I almost got headers but they're RB road race I guess (was gonna trade s5 tails for 100+ the headers) iono I might just drop in a 13b TII soon

The poor guy in the eclipse would of **** bricks if he knew my car only had 90hp, I should put that on my rear window "90 Horses of Pwn"

lolol

^Do you even have a rx7?

My 12a would probably be quicker then your moms mpv bro, regardless I'm going to 13b the 12a is still alive but theres no more parts being made plus 13b is cheaper, and I'm not rich =3

No, I'm just shitting you, bro. The MPV was sold 3-4 years ago back in HS. I have an Infiniti with more than 3x your displacement and taking a 3 hr drive to the Hamptons today and probably picking up a fully loaded VR RX8.

we should respect the 12a's cause its what made 7s popular back in the 80's. you have to start some where right!

2009 and were still stuck with the old 13b aswell when there should be somthing more killer like a 15b

now that would be sick

Thanks... BTW no need to get panties wet. Just messing around with ya'll like how everyone says "**** 12a" jokingly whenever they are mention. My neighbor has a VERY clean and modified 83 FB and makes me wet my pants every time he drives away.
