    Evothis

    Went to Hot Import Nights Sat in Orlando, after being hit up and declining due to traffic conditions (EVo, wrx, many bumble bees), got hit up by another EVO. No traffic, we did 3 roll ons. Once, he beat me, I didn't even have a chance, he had the go and I was still fumbling around deciding when we were gonna start. We even up again and run a couple more times, much better. We were literally head to head while I was in 4th, 5th started pulling, 6th actually pulls away prety good. STI is stock for now, the EVO appeared to be stock, both cars had a full load of people. Last run I was in 5th, put my blinker on and had room to slowly merge into his lane in front of him. But down low around 70mph or so, the cars are real close. I am not sure what gear he was starting in, but I am still getting used to having to start in 4th. My s2k turbo always started in 3rd at that speed. Anyways, his license plates said EVOTHIS. Pretty cool.

    My thoughts exactly. The EVO looks pretty good while it's moving. I get more impressed with it everytime I see one.

    Yep. I pulled next to one in a parking lot and we were both rubbernecking over each other's rides. It was a blue one. It's a pretty nice blue, I must say that Mitsu must've been thinking of the WRX's popularity when they came up with that shade of blue. Which isn't bad... just makes me even more proud to own my REX

    There were several different EVOs running 12.0s at Englishtown this Saturday. I didn't see what mods they had but apparently not too hard to do. Fastest run was a first gen DSM. 10.0 at 149 . Complete with half track u-turn and all. The EVO is lucky to have basically the same 4G63 powerplant.

    funny, i'm sick of my wrblue now cause i see similar colors being used by many different manufacturers...even that saturn suv (the vue or whatever it's called). i've even seen total beaters with our blue.

    my next car is going to be white or silver.

    That's awesome. Once my STi is in I should have opportunity to run a slightly modified EVO at a track when I go visit some friends...

    At 70, I would guess 3rd gear. I'll play around tonight and get back with ya. I usually don't look at the speedo until i'm done. One eye on redline, other eye on blurry pavement.

    On a side note, I still have yet to race a WRX, let alone anyone but my buddy in his GTP. His lunch was tasty.
