me and a few buddys are debating.. what car would win in a race.. quarter
mile, or mile race.
a stock 97-99 eclipse gst, or a stock 95 3000gt SL?
GST by far.
3000GT SL is very heavy.
Yes, I would also place my bets on the Eclipse. I would, however, rather have a 3000GT.
eclipse, but the 3kgt should get a head start, you allways give the fat kids headstarts...
Why dont we just look them up?
According to that a 95 Eclipse GS (non turbo) is just as quick as a 3000GT SL (16.4 vs. 16.6 1/4 mile).
eclipse would win but this is really an unfair matchup.. It's a Turbo eclipse vs the base 3kgt. More fair would be ECLIPSE GSX vs 3kgt VR4
And I think the 3kgt would take it despite weighing about 600 pounds more...
Are these auto or stick?
Well, the VR4 comes only as a 6 speed manual as far as I know. The GSX comes as a 5 speed manual or a 4 speed auto as far as I know. For the interest of fairness, I guess we have to compare the 5 speed version.
gst by far
we are not talking about the vr4 tho. he asked about a stock 95 3000gt
i really think that this question is redundant. Whether the cars are manual or automatic, it doesnt really matter. you have a light turbo charged car against a heavy non turbo car. Either way, the eclipse will will.
However... what makes the car fast is the driver. if you have a good driver in the 3kgt, and a punk kid that thinks he can drive in the eclipse, the 3kgt, would have a chance.
So I guess if we were comparing a GST to a Mustang GT the GST would win because it has a turbo. Right...
Well, not necessarily. The mustang GT and the Eclipse GST have completely different engines. The GT has a N/A V8, and the GST has a turbo 4cyl. So i think that either one could stand up to eachother. Like i said before, the better driver would win.
