The mx6 might stand a chance if you took the back wheels off the GSX.

Oh, please :rolleyes: The outcome would depend on the race. From a dead stop, from a rolling start, what distance, what duration, are we even talking about a drag race or is this in the hills, etc I have not been too terribly impressed with Eclipses in my encounters.

Okay, so I was exaggerating just a little bit...

1/4 mile, the Eclipse, with a good driver, would win. They launch much better and have about 1/3 more torque than the 6. From a rolling start, the 6 would pull away at first because of the GSX's turbo lag, but then the turbo would kick in and the GSX would catch up pretty quickly.

I raced a GSX in my 88 MX-6 Turbo and after the launch, the car length it took on me stayed until we quit. (equal acceleration after launch) He could dump the clutch and rocket of while I spun. Dang all wheel drive cars
