    Well suppose the WRX could beat it with a VS1; then what if the EVO had a MBC, catback, and new ECU? The debate could go on and on.

    And yes, the EVO is more expensive, and some of us think its a rip off. But then there could be Neon SRT drivers that think our car is a rip off. It all a matter of personal taste as to whether you buy a more expensive car or buy a cheaper one and mod it out.

    The truth is the EVO is a better car stock for stock. After that, its always negotiable. You could put 10K in a pinto and have it be fast. Just enjoy how japanese imports are starting to dominate the market as whole and admit that there are better cars out there that cost more $$. There always have been....I'd take a M3 over the WRX anyday.
    I back you 100%. Good points.

    What bugs me here is that everyone tells how they beat cars faster then ours.

    I raced an EVO VIII at the track last Thurs. and I OWNED him. He ran a better time, but with my R/T I beat him by a half a second. Our race would have been dead even if we both had the same launch until third gear. Thats where the car really seemed to pull. Just thought I would share this with you people.

    The One,

    Yup sounds about right...the guy I raced didn't really start to pull hard till around 3rd. That's where the Evo's much better gearing gets the better of us Rex's. No worries. I speculate that even a VS 0 can keep up with an Evo...heck, maybe even beat it.

    Cool, I'm not the only one with a good ending for a race against that car. He started to run better as he got used to his car. I just saw him line up next to me in the staging lanes so I said **** it, why not race him so I can see the cool altezzas staring at me. All I saw during the whole race was his headlights in my right rearview mirror! LOL.

    I agree with Swipe about this, stop playa hating about other peoples cars and also remember that there will be something bigger and better comming out every year anyway to compete with the newer cars, its just the way it is. Also we should be happy seeing these cars here in the US because its about time that we get to check out these great driving machines for ourselves, where in europe and asia they already had their fun for centuries.

    That was well said. I hope we can keep on getting nice cars like these here in the states.

    That guy is beating on his one week old car already. Sigh.
    If you lose, you lose. I agree on the part that "if I did this and that I would have won." The truth is, you lost. And maybe if you put in the mods and you will win the next time.
    I like the influx of good compact cars now. More competition = better cars and prices.
