    Got killed by an Evo..

    I rarely get races, and of the few I've had my win record isn't looking so good so far.. Happened to fill my gas tank tonight and right after leaving the station I see a debadged silver Evo drive by. It's rare to see one around here so I keep near him, he moves over to let me by then follows. We go make a right onto another highway and eventually stop at a light, with him behind me since the other lane was taken by a minivan.

    I burn up my clutch bad and get a slow launch, then I just floor it from there. He sticks to me all the way up to 100mph or so, then moves into the left lane and floors it..puts like 3 cars on me easy. He slows down, so do I and I give him the thumbs up out the window, he takes an exit off. I don't know what mods he had or anything, but he passed me pretty easily at that point. Stock turbo you've failed me again!



    I hope my clutch is ok.. it stunk all the way through first to redline..

    Don't curse your turbo. It's you that you should be cursing. Go stage 2 & you'll give an EVO a good shot.

    My bad, i didnt know you were stage 2. That EVO must've been heavily modded to walk all over you like that.

    It's tough to say..I mean w some tuning exhaust they can run 12s so even w a few boltons it would've killed me. Too bad he didn't stick around, would've liked to go side by side from a dig and see how much he really pulls on me.

    Having a TD05-16g, a FMIC, and like 19 psi stock all gives them a whopping advantage in the "easy mods" category.

    Aside from a bigger turbo, what else does EVO have that a WRX don't? Both have 2.0L engine... better internals? Just wondering because EVO respond real well with basic mods.
    I might be back in the market for the new STI sedan!

    The IX's are responding even better than the VIII's to mods. I'll have Buschur Stage 1 for mine in about 3 weeks which is said to net me 330WHP. It's about $1200. I could probably go much higher for cheaper, but safety and reliability is a major concern for me.

    Evo's are fast but with the right mods you should be able to take one!!!

    I just recently bet an Evo, an 03 model, by at least 4 cars easy. He wasn't upset but he didn't like the fact that he was just beat by an STi, I guess Evo owners aren't used to getting beat. There is only one other Evo owner in town, and he's a friend from the Neighborhood, he dont' want to race cause he saw how I beat the other Evo. Is it so wrong to not want to try and defend your peoples? I mean, if I saw an evo beat a STi, then I'd want to take it on, just to see if I could beat them.
