    EVO8 Encounter

    I really wish the story had a more definite outcome. I was coming back from a small-group meeting last night and saw these weird lights behing me. I didn't even notice since my car was cold and it was in the low 50s last night. Speed limit changed from 45 to 35 so I slow down from 50 to 40. The car behind me changes lane and flies past me and I noticed it was a blue EVO8. I so want to run against one so when he pasted me and got infront of me I "flashed" the highbeams a few times to get his attention. He's doing 45+ but I'm not going more than 40 since there are usually cops in the area. We both turn onto another road and he floors it when he's 3+ cars ahead of me. I "flashed" him again but he doesn't slow down and he's doing 70+ in a 45 so I just cruise a 50 like usual. I was hoping he'd pull next to me at 20 or so and we could do a few runs. Well, there's always a next time. If whoever was in a EVO8 last night in Roswell and Upper Roswell is reading this and you want to run let me know.

    Yo

    Honestly, I didn't pay attention since I was more focused on getting his attention and not find a cop in the process. I've seen 2x blue EVO8, one in Norcross near my work and the one last night.

    I hate to say it, but I think with your mods you will get destroyed, even if its stock.

    Maybe I am wrong.

    Good luck!

    yea he prolly would, but who cares? it gets a bit boring destroying weak cars... Ive been a DSM fan for a long time... But love subarus. Sure youd get beat... but then at least you know that your not making 240wheel horse, and youve got some modding to do. But hey theres alot of kits out there that will lay down 240horse. So its fun either way. Although the 4g63 has an endless road of mods. We can mod to run with a high 12 second evo, but thats about it. They can run close to 11's with stock turbo. In Japan the evo 7 ran 12.7 stock, which runs with a Stage IV rex...

    I figured the EVO8 "should" beat me since they are "supposed" to have more whp. However I wanted to see by how much and it's also depends on the drivers is someone mis shifts. I've raced enough cars where a mis shift wins a race. No one really wants to race me anymore so it's nice to meet new people.

    There's a blue EVO7 in Huntsville, AL I think. It could've been him.

    What kind of blue was it? like suby's blue? or more metallic light blue.

    That's Victor. I have no clue but suspect he wouldn't be too far out from Huntsville during the week...but could be horribly wrong.

    His also beat my STi when we raced at the 1/8 track and I had a passenger. Willing to bet he'd beat me without a passenger too. That particular car would wail on a lot simply because Victor's a great driver too.

    End rant.

    so was it a light grayish blue? because that's the only blue color that evo8's come in
    evo7 had a blue color similar to the rex's
