SLK 350 vs. Mitsubishi spyder

Pulled into the gas station to fill up the tank (at $3.91 a gallon ) and some guy in a mitsubishi convertible pulls up next to me. we both had our roofs down and we didnt speak... I finished filling up and he finished around the same time. I pulled out and he pulled our right behind me. There is a light right by the gas station and he pulled up next to me. I looked over and he was already looking at me. Light turned green and I hear him gun it. I started off easy on the gas and then I just hit it to the floor. I pulled about 2 cars away and hit about 65mph before slowing down at another light. He didnt try to do it again and gave me a beep and a thumbs up. He was a gracious loser, which i dont see often. Anyway, SLK was the faster car!

Nice little race there. Especially nice considering he was a gentleman about the loss.

Nice kill. Not suprising though, given that the Spyder is a whopping 400 pounds heavier than the SLK. It is rated 6.7s for 0-60, so even a 280 should beat it. Unfortunately your profile doesn't say which SLK you got. Also, 3.91$ ain't bad at all where I live (again, your profile is missing that information, please add it).

I think he has a 350, he stated this on his older threads.

I'm surprised anyone in an eclipse spyder would even try to race a 350. I owned an eclipse GT, which is pretty much the same thing as the spyder, and I wouldn't have even bothered trying to throw down against a 350. Maaaaybe back when it was only 260+ hp, but even then the eclipse just isn't as fast unless the SLK driver has a 6-speed and doesn't know how to shift.

That's cool that he was a gentleman about the loss though. That's definately not the norm for eclipse drivers, from what I've seen even when I owned one.
