    I was considering these cars back when I was looking for a track car, curious to see what it can do. I decided against it because they are FWD and I didn't think they were really that quick. What are you defining as fast? Not criticizing, I'm honestly curious.

    Ive never been much of an eclipse fan...though the only one that runs around my area is a 4banger and the guy wants to race me every second of every day even though he just ripped the front bumper off of it. Sooo your gonna rip that motor apart and turbo it just to trade it? Seems like a lot of work just to get stuck back at another sour starting point.

    Also....dem wheels on dat stang doe. DONK.

    nah

    why not do a little freshen and flip and get a GSX and then we can talk about a fast car.

    or a speed 6

    That is correct. The Speed6 is a AWD also. The GSX can also be snagged for a solid 1/3 of the cost of a Speed6
