While I wouldn't go so far as to call it a kill because of the circumstances, I can say for sure that I'm not all that worried about the new Mitsu.
Was on a 4 lane road, in the left lane behind a truck, saw a Lancer coming up behind me in the other lane. When he was about 20 yards back, i noticed a huge FMIC in the grille... could it be?
It must be my exhaust, but I never even have to instigate, it seems... He hit it hard just as he got even with me, and I did the same an instant later, dropping in behind him. Altezzas, dealer plates... check. It's an evo. After 1-2 seconds, the gap that had opened up between us was closing fast -- no trouble at all reeling him in. I had to back way out of the throttle to keep from driving up his tailpipe. There was traffic up ahead, so we both shut it down at that point.
As I said, I wouldn't call it an outright kill, but I'm now pretty sure what's going to happen when I get one lined up against me. It wasn't nearly as fast as I expected it to be.
Will be interesting to see what Shiv and the others do with it though.
