    Kick an Evo's ass!

    It was sweet. Today at the Autocross this dude in a white evo pulls up and walks around the lot like his **** don't stink. I t was sad. I looked at him to say nice car but he looked back like I'm just some sorry ni%%a with a wrx. So I just looked the other way. Well after the A-cross I lined up with a 81 rx7 or so at a light. The light turneed green andb he squealed so I left his ass standing. Welll apparently Mr. Mitsu Evo saw this and thought he was going to show me to pick on someone my own size. So he sped up and passwed the rx7 to get a chance at me on the next light. the light turns red and I start thinking ut ohh. Well I t was crazy I mean everything was quiet. I looked over at the guys (two) in the Evo but they acted like they were about to kill me and were too good to look back so it was on!
    Light turns green I rev, so does he then all hell breaks loose! I drop clutch at about 3500rpm and all I hear is Evo turbo. to my dis belief I was walking away from him. He had a great take off and was there till the very end of first gear. Second gear I could hear a bOV but I still kept pulling. We stopped at about 65 70 mph (way above the speed limit) and he could not real me in. I put on the hazards and all he could do was try to give me akl kinds of excuses. I only got 500 miles on it man! I;m just learnin. OK then why are you racing? From that take off it looks like you know what your doing to me. I told him I hav 50k on mine, he then say "oh then that's it" and pulls away like his balls were given back to him. What a dork. No good race man, or nice run, just an oh then that's it . I told him good run and all that, but like all that ricers up here he acts like a **** and pulls away. I don't know but I think a 500 miler Evo has an advantage on a 50K stock rex any day on paper , but it just goes to show you that on any given day your ass can be handed to you . that's why street racing is so tempting because your racing someone the way they are, nort preped therefore you know who is really faster unlike on preped up tracks, with iced intaked cars and tire pressure tricks and un realistic **** like that. OK flame me up as if I'm not black enough....

    wow...you must have gotten an excellent jump at the start or he wasn't making full use of his turbo b/c of the break-in period of his car...I'm not saying that you're BSing or anything like that, but an evo hangs with the STI no prob (maybe even a little faster to 60)...therefore, I cannot foresee a stock rex hanging with an Evo who is really trying to go. Just my .02 and remember I am NOT trying to flame you are anything like that.

    It is rad that you put him in his place.

    It isn't hard to believe at all! I raced a stock EVO at the track when I was stock and actually it was the first day I had my car. I wasted him by at least 4 carlengths and ran a 14.6. He ran a 14.4, but my point is, if you get a faster jump, forget about it, it's easy to win. Since he only went up to 65-70mph that wouldn't even be an 1/8 of a mile, so it's easy to believe that he beat him like that. Good race man! Oh and on a side note, the only reason the EVO get from 0-60 quicker than the STi, is because the Sti requires a 2-3 shift right before 60.

    Disregarding driver error or skill...the Evo will be a faster car than the stock rex (and the STI for that matter b/c of that 2-3 shift before 60). The point that I was trying to make was that if he was making use of his turbo to the fullest the stock rex would get blown out of the water. Once again not flaming...

    Just by the raw numbers that I have been seeing...the WRX (stock) will 0-60 in about +/- 6 secs. The STI and the EVO will do it in +/- 5 secs...

    Not that I'm sticking up for the Evo guy, but he did have only 500 miles on it. I was still pretty timid and just learning the car at that point. But now I got almost 5k on the car, I have my launches down and can usually hit shifts like no other. He was probably granny-shifting because he doesn't want to hurt his new baby. When that happens, the ol turbo spools down for a second for instant power loss. I have a feeling that if you raced a more experienced Evo driver, you would have been nicely toasted. Hell I lost to a N/A Z28 the other day because I missed 2nd. A couple days before that, I strait hosed on a S/C Z28 from a roll. Go figure on that one.

    Good kill all the same though!

    Actually, figures I see place STi 0-60 at 4.5-4.7 seconds and Mitsu puts the Evo at 5.1 seconds. The 2-3 shift, apparently, does NOT slow down a good enough driver.
