I had a very short race w an Evo tonight omw to work..I think it was an Evo VIII, as it was debadged in the back except for the Mitsu label, and had altezza lights. It was from a roll, about 50-90ish, I didn't downshift, just saw him fly up on my rear and just floored it from low 4th on and since that was my only chance I took it. He stayed on me pretty well, started about a car length back and held that for a bit. By the time we were around 90 it looked like he had fallen back 1-2 car lengths and then I let off. I was under the impression that they had a stronger top end..so I thought that was surprising. I didn't get to ask him about his car or go again, had to take a right turn for work. My mods..

I would've liked to go from a stop, but he stayed back when we had a perfectly clear light, no traffic ahead etc. Would've been nice to go awd vs awd, I get very few races so that would've been a good challenge.
