    stage 2 wrx vs. stock evo-high stakes

    Here's the story in short: A friend of mine and I went to the local mitsu dealership to test drive an evo. I asked them about price. I was amazed at the markup on a used one. I walked out and my friend and I were talking sh!t outside while we were leaving without knowing the owner of the dealership was around the corner. We went around the corner and as we were getting in our cars, he yells out furiously "Wanna race title for title?" . I was a bit shocked. Then he took us for a test drive, and he just banged through the gears going 120 mph + just dogging the tranny. It felt pretty quick. Then he let me drive it, I was amazed at the speed of the carfor having 3 people in it.

    Should I take him up on his offer?? He might of just been joking, but from talking to him, he's got some balls and the money to back it up. If he wasn't I'll try and take him up on it if I can beat him.

    Do you think I can beat him?

    Well, that wouldn't be fair to him. He already thinks my car is stock.

    What does fair have to do with anything? If someone offers to race for pink slips without knowing what the other competitor is packing then they deserve what they get! Is it your fault if he brings a knife to a gun fight?

    Also, what were they asking for a used EVO? How many miles and was it stock?

    PS: Tell him that you sure as hell wouldn't pay that much when you see how he has been driving/abusing it

    They offered me 18k for trade in on my car. 2004 wrx that I've owned for a month and a half. They quoted the price of a used evo with 10k miles at 28k.

    I probably won't be getting that stuff for a couple weeks anyways. (gotta wait for the next paycheck) I'll probably see him sooner than that. He likes to cruise the boulevard on the weekends and race in his dealer cars.

    I can't believe the owner actually does that to his cars.

    I dont know whats in a "stage 2" but I think its funny how many people dog the EVO until they drive it and realize how quick and bad ass it is. I don't know how you or this guy drives but go ahead.

    That is pretty reasonable on your trade in (depreciation is a *****!) but you can get a BRAND NEW 10 miles on the odo (instead of 10,000 miles) EVO for 28K now. Don't bother to go back.

    A couple weeks ago my friend said there were 3 EVO's he knew of being sold in IL for 24k. 2003, all less than 5k Mileage with clean titles. Don't know the situation now...PM me if you're interested and Ill ask him again. I'm not too sure what kind of info you need since i've never had t osell my car before. Ask for that too.

    Agreed Smokey. Kinda IRONIC for someone to tell people not to "Dog" a car until they drive it when he doesn't know or driven a stage 2 rex....

    He said race for "THE" title right? I take that to mean if you win you get a free EVO, if you lose you keep your car and go home with your tail between your legs.
    The whole thing sounds like baloney to me but I say you call his bluff.

    If I was offered that deal, I would have taken him up on it immediately and when all said and done, would have my boy drive it to my house, since I would own him!

    you should have taken him up on it, you would have taken him.

    When I was stage 2, I couldnt beleive how fast the car was, now I am 4+ and damn!

    Next time, take him up on it.
