Would you prefer

Straight line power such as a Mustang pushing 1000 HP or something decently powered (300hp) which still has decent handling such as a built and boosted eclipse.

You could easily get that eclipse up to 700HP with out spending fortune and rip a new hole in the mustang at the strip or on a raod course. So I would take the Eclipse.

DSM POWER BABY, LOL

Well, I'd take the 1000hp RWD Stang over the 400hp FWD eclipse any day. Just imagine the torque steer. Power is nothing without control.

neither, something with excellent handling and awesome power for a light frame: 400+ whp Celica.

But if I had to choose between those two: it'd be the 300hp Eclipse GSX, since the 1000 hp Mustang which has to be turbo would be no fun to drive on the street. It would LAG more disgustingly than seeing your granny SAG. besides it's a Ford POS model anyway.

Well, if it was that, then the EClipse, but I'd go RWD over FWD any day. even if its a ford. Seeing their new Stang GT's makes me like em even more.

i'll take decently powered 300hp with decent handling. it's more usable on daily driving and auto x. 1000 ponys are too much for me... spineyes

^ I'm happy with less HP, better handling as well. About another 60 HP on the Celi would be just right for me. Can I have fries with that?

i would never drive a ford period...and the eclipse in cie and a good car but way too overdone and riced out so just stick with a 400 whp celica or maybe more and you will be happy and i think an awd system is in development right now too so that will be good

Nither, I'd take the money and buy a 90's twin turbo supra and pimp that bitch. But if I had to pick, the Eclipse.
