Though very fast cars in there own perspective. They have many flaws such as but not limited to Crankwalk, Bent valves(see broken timing belts) shitty timing belts, and failing automatic transmissions. The RS and GS eclipses ARE NOT FAST they are rice wagons and are most likey driven by a ricer (see ricer,ricer burner, wigger, or wigger ricer for definition) THe rs and some GS modelsshare a common engine with the dodge neon the 420a engine a dohc 150hp 132ft/lb 2.0 4 cyl engine fast in a neon r/t or ACR- a 2500 or less pound car ,SLOW ASS HELL IN A 3200-3500 pound eclipse. these eclipses should not be mistaken with the 210 hp 4g63 turbocharged engine in the GS-T or GSX- these cars share this engine with older Mitsubishi Lancer EVO's. these engines however(unlike the eclipses 420a) can be very easily upgraded on STOCK INTERNALS to be 400+hp which has been proven over and over again. NO this car is not a ricer by any means. rs and gs can be and most likey are.
ricer: man my mitsubishi eclipse rs runs over 38psi
eclipse GSX owner: yeah in your tires. people like you that drive the base models of the fast cars give the real version of the car a bad name!.
1.Mitsubishi Spyder Eclipse
3.Toyota Rav 4
4.Mitsubishi Eclipse (not spyder)
5.Land Rover Freelander
6.Ford Mustang (girly car not womens car)
this is not to be confused with Ford Mustang which is not a womans car. It is actually a Girls car, usually seen at drivers ed parking lots. Big difference.
