My best friend Chris just got his '04 Jetta GLI and we have discovered that it is a perfect match in a race with my '01 Eclipse GT. Both cars are at stock performance, and a win is almost solely determined by the amount and type of gas in the cars. I have a full tank of unleaded in these videos (can't afford premium quite yet) and chris is running a 1/4 tank of premium. In the 90-pull we get up to 120, and the 1/4 mile we finish at around 100 but continue to like 110. I've hit 145 in my Eclipse and I'm sure it won't be long before chris does the same in the Jetta.
Eclipse GT Nitrous vs Cobalt SS Supercharged
Here's the truth guys!!!! the Cobalt is Supercharged and my Eclipse has a
Zex Wet Nitrous Kit (50 shots) and the
times are so slow cause they were having technical problems with the
sensors down at the end of the track.
Jetta Hits jump at 98mph
in my 2004 gli 1.8t doing a 0-60 test and then hitting a dip thing at
pretty high speed. ended up getting the tires off the ground with no damage
to the car.
My 2001 Eclipse GT
Me showing off, lamely might I add, my lovely car.
I got some pretty weird looks while filming this.
And yeah, trying to record yourself is pretty difficult, actually.
Major props to my uncle for finding this baby and getting him for me.
I am eternallllyyyy gratteffulll.
