    Raced an evo tonight

    I pulled up to a red light next to what i thought was a honda. I thought, wtf does this guy think he's doing. We then kept driving and he pulled ahead. I realized it was an evo. I was like "holy sh*t", i gotta see how fast this car really is. So i get up to him and start egging him on, he honks his horn three times and we go from second at about 40. I get killed. This car is ridiculously fast. I am stage 2 TurboXS. Thats all i can really say. He just took off. Lost by about 4 or five car lengths to 90. The guy was really nice about it too, not cocky. It is a really sweet looking car though. I have a lot of respect for that evo. I would deffinately trade it in for the rex, but i cant wait for the sti.

    How did you lose? I would think you guys would be pretty close since you are stage 2? Do you have an uppipe? Wow i didn't think they would kill a stage 2 car by 4-5 car lenghts...

    he might have not been stock, i heard what i thought was a blow off valve but i dont know what those things come with stock. Im a 5mt not auto. stage 2 = up-pipe turbo back, UTEC, CAI. I just saw the big wing and the altezzas and i figured it was a honda, but it sounded kidna nice so i looked over and i realized what it was, I didnt think that they were out yet, but they are, and they're fast. I'd like to race another one though, i donno how accurate that race was, he shouldnt have beat me by that much.

    They don't have BOV's stock, or at least not ones you can hear.

    stock evo on 93octane ~190whp.. stock wrx on 93 ~165.. (on a dyno dynamics).. + you have a txs stg2 which should put you way over a stock evos whp.. maybe you pressed on the brake instead of the gas..

    Tuning?

    Maybe your car is not tuned properly?

    Is 190 the whp that Shiv got from his dyno runs? I'm trying to figure out where I saw some different dyno runs on the Evo that came out with way higher results....can't remember where it was though.

    Relax guys. In a steet race when two similarly-powered cars race, there are so many possible outcomes. He could have been in a better part of his power band when they started to race or he could have even hit the gas a little earlier. You know if 2 identical cars raced, and one car starts just a little earlier, it would keep pulling ahead as if it was more powerful. That's why taking it to the track is the best way to compare two cars.
