    EVO Kill #2 for me...

    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

    4th gear can be improved with the onset of enough boost. 4th gear with 17 psi of boost w/ engine management of course pulls decently. The thing is that at 4th gear RPM right after you shift out of 3rd the stock hairdryer is still boosing 17. This equals torque.

    Cool racing.......

    nice kills... one of these days i am sure i will run up on one... just been looking around for more parts and found buschurracing.com and on there main page it shows a new EVO VIII with a 12.6? something 1/4... that's fast if that's the stock turbo.. damn it's going to be hard to beat once modded.....

    nice kills

    yes there are a couple evo's running mid 12s so far on stock turbo with 4-5 mods. the stock turbo was used in dsms for years to run low 12s or faster so mid 12s should be relatively easy.

    Oh yeah, mid 12s should be cake in that car.. One owner I talked to (you know him, Al freidman) is making 280WHP with only an HKS computer, AFC, and 3inch catless turboback exhuast..(and tuning). Thats pretty sweet IMO.

    But I was real happy when I beat the Evo that night, I was smiling the whole time... I'll leave racing modded ones to the lucky STI owners

    Well then let me enlighten you..

    1.I raced the Neon again and I won, barely by the middle of 4th I was ahead( by half a car - I had raised the boost and dumped my passenger from the last time I raced him, he dumped a passenger too from the last time i raced him also)

    2. When I raced him I was using an MBC with the stock, computer now I have an UNICHIP stg.2 now so my car is probably faster then when I raced him, it feels like it is anyway

    So I would say, no, srt-4s don't pull on Evos.. well the neon did hang with me in 4th better than the EVO did hmm.. I'd like to see that race actually. It would have to be from an roll of course as the Evolution would just own an Neon in the 1/4mile(as would my car)

    New England Dragway last Fri. The evo's and srt4's were both running low 14's. stock rex's running mid to high 14's. So to answer your question a srt4 may pull on a lancer.

    Cheers,

    Why would an evo run low 14's in the 1/4 w/ 270hp and all wheel drive... sounds like someone needs to learn how to launch... and shift... and maybe push the gas all the way down.
