    Evo vs. brand spankin new M3

    so i just dropped off my friend lastnight after a night cruisen in my pops EVO when i see this M3 cruise by me doin 70 -75 while i am merging onto I 84......so i say to myself.....once in a lifetime opportunity so i'm gonna go for it even though i told my dad i would baby it.....so i get side by side with this dude thats in his mid 30's and i smile at him.....i look over again and he just takes off....i wasn't sure if we were gonna do a 3 honk or something so he got a pretty decent jump on me....i downshifted to fourth around 75 and now he has like 3 or 4 cars before i react......i nail it and it doesn't look like he is pulling much as we go around one car......i'm at about 100 and i'm thinkin about shifting into 5th in a lil while and i'm thinkin to myself i'm toast......If I estimate i was prolly like a 8 or 9 cars back at 130 since he got a decent jump so i say he got me by 5 cars total.....i knew those things were quick but never experienced it in person.....told my dad after and he was cool about it because he knows I am careful and that I would only try something if there was a rare opportunity....now he seems he might want to start modding it.....hopefully i will get another chance later down the road .

    That's great how your dad reacted. Mine would kill me if I ever raced his car.

    good story. Those e46s can really move at speed! EVO's are no slouches, but you'd need mods to hang with a new m3

    Nice death. E46 M3's are in my short list of cars (attainable) I'd love to own.

    I haven't seen any evos around since I've gotten my STi a couple weeks ago, but if you see a black STi on 84, rt8, or 691 feel free to make your presence known.

    no i havent been over there for a while with my car, last time i went there there were a bunch of cops there and wouldnt let anyone go, i just kept on driving by. (last summer that was) but since then ive heard it was better. my car is down in the Bronx right now at my cusins house, i dont have any heat in it (heater core went, i think i broke it from the frame twisting or something ) i raced an evo from a roll one night coming home from spring valley (WOW if you like fast cars and all types, go there!) there was a tallon that was messing around also with him. my friend with his GT was in front of me and were like cool. so we went and he started to pull on the evo and so did i ( i was behind the GT) this was without my supercharger and new intake. i was trapping around 109 then. alot of fun
