  2. Re: Eagle Talon TSI vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

    Spec wise the cars are pretty much the same, but having driven both the cars, i knoticed that the Talon can corner a billion times better than the Eclipse, later i found the vital differenc between the two cars is the AWD of the Talon. Where as the Eclipse only has FWD, wich sports car wise, is the worst idea ever. Any who, AWD puts the power where its needed, so not only does it produce more traction wile turning, but also reduces wheel spin during initial scceleration. I've knoticed most people here seem to be 13 year olds who based eveything they know off of the fast and the furious. That really bothers me. The eclispe is by no means better than the talon.

    Same car. My friend's almost-stock Talon beat a souped-up Eclipse, but which do i prefer? Heh, Subaru Impreza WRX STi.

    Man, I've seen the talon TSI and the mitsubishi eclipse before, I knew the talon TSI was AWD but I didn't know the mitsubishi eclipse had a AWD version also... That explains why the use both of these cars in rallies. Well One thing I knew is that the rally racers shove the same engine in either of these cars: the 4G63 and this engine is made by Mitsibishi so... I give my vote to the car company that knows its shit more and that can make more than 1 good car.

    alrite guys, theres just a few errors in some of your technical info, i've been a dsm'er for 2 years now, i own a first gen talon and i have a lot of useful and pointless facts about both so honestly i know what i'm talking about.

    eclipses/talons/lasers have the Exact same horsepower, torque, engine, trans, entire drivetrain....... the differences are cosmetic only. the laser was not produced in the second generation, so it never got the newer 210hp 7bolt motor, it only had the 195 motor that came in all of the turbocharged first gen cars.

    the first generation cars had either a 1.8L 94hp motor, a 2.0L 135hp motor or the turbo 2.0 195hp engine.

    the second gen cars have either the chrysler 2.0L 140hp engine, the 2.4L chrysler engine (gs spyder) or the 2.0L turbo mitsu engine.

    talon tsi - fwd
    talon tsi awd - awd
    eclipse gst - fwd
    eclipse gsx - awd

    there is NOT a gsx spyder, only a gs or gs-t spyder.

    the turbo engine is a the mitsubishi 4g63 in all the turbo cars, it was a 6 bolt until mid '92 when it switch to a 7 bolt and the second generation cars are the most prone to crankwalk which is a common condition involving thrust bearing failure due to a bad oil squirter design.

    1st gen is 90-94 and 2nd gen is 95-99, after 1999 model year there are No turbo eclipses

    and the eagle talon was never considered an amc car, it started as a dsm (diamond star motors) a joint venture between chrysler and mitsubishi like all eclipses/talons/lasers started. dsm was disbanded later and the second generation cars are technially not dsm's but often considered as such.

    as for my preference.... 1st gen - talon, 2nd gen - eclipse

  12. Re: Eagle Talon TSI vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

    and how is that? Is it better by far becasue it has a Mitsu logo and different body work?
     
  13. Re: Eagle Talon TSI vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

  14. Re: Eagle Talon TSI vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

  15. Re: Eagle Talon TSI vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

    How many miles? Year? have you ever bought or looked at a car before?
     
  16. Re: Eagle Talon TSI vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

    Mitsubishi all da way, screw the Talon.
     
  17. Re: Eagle Talon TSI vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

    92's are better they weigh less and have more tourqe! better traction with the same body style!
     
  18. Re: Eagle Talon TSI vs. Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

    You got an account and all just to say that? Wow.

  20. Re: Re:

    I like the looks of the Talon better. Since they are the same I also picked the Talon for its relative exclusivity. I like the 1G cars better because of the looks and because they are considerably lighter than the 2nd gen cars.
     
  21. Re: Re:

    well my name says it all.
    I like the eclispe, but everyone has one. From your dad's secretary, to your sister's girlfriend to bob idiot down the street. If I ever bought a Eclipse, Id do a talon conversion on it, particularly a spyder.

    You don't see many talons, even in places where they were sold a lot, especially the 97 98 version which i really like. it looks like a predator. The intercooler scoop on the side mount works a lot better on the 2gb talon nose, and the tail, well it does work at reducing lift and drag. the only comparison would be the Supra/ super high spoiler in the 2gb eclipse, and most folks don't like that one either, and at least the talons flows with the overall design. Those who dont like the large eagle, well i sometimes dont like it either, but it looks like an eagles beak seen straight on and really makes the car have an agressive predatory look. The fog match perfectly, can use any appearance part for an eclipse if you want to its the perfect platform to me.

    I only wish the 2gb talon had come with the 2ga talon sideskirts, as that is the best looking skirt design out there.

    I love seeing hondas pull up thinking its an ESI and the back off. that and the cops think its an ESI too and don't pay it any attention.




     
  22. get over what? and it's not the same car. There are differences. I prefer the Eclipse over the Talon
