I had a chance the other night to race an Evolution on the highway.. It was the second Evo I had a chance to race, but the first race sucked and was very short in 3rd gear and I pulled like 1/2 a car; this time was much better (and a different car and owner too) Here is what happened..
We raced like 6 or 7 times on the highway from starting in 2nd gear, and one from an 3rd gear roll(but that 3rd gear one was cut short due to traffic).
This is what happened.. I summed the races up here because the results were consistent and it wouldn't make sense to post 6 different races with same results etc.
Each race was from 2nd gear varying between 30-40mph each time; In second gear we are neck and neck(thats 40-65mph), in 3rd gear we are still close but I pulled about 1/4 of a car in each race. 3rd gear is from 65mph-90mph. Once I shifted into 4th, I pulled very hard on him, pulling about an car and a half more on him from 90mph, to 125mph(yes we raced that fast a few times ).
I'm very happy I can beat an EVO, but of course his car is stock and once he mods it the fun is over for me But being able to beat an 271hp evolution with an 227hp wrx is sweet
