    Another WRX vs Evo.

    One of my coworker has the Lan Evo and been wanting to race me. Today was his last day of work, so I decided to give me going away race. To be exact it was even a race. Since we did not want to take it on to the streets, we just ran through 1st gear in our parking lot. It was all for good fun, since I will not be able to see him often. I wanted to see how fast Evos are off the line. His Evo is stock and my WRX has Helix Up pipe, HKS downpipe/Invidia exhaust system and Gramlights 57C/Kumho Ecsta 712s. So we line up, I bring my rev up to 4K. I slipped the clutch and darted off the line and immediately took about car and a half lead going into 2nd gear, where I had to brake, because I ran out of room. What I want to ask is, if the race had been longer, would I able to take him through at least end of 3rd or even 4th gear? I know eventually, he'll reel me in. BTW, I am the better driver.

    Got him on the launch eh? Well with no boost increase done to your car I'd say he would have went by you by the top of second gear, unless you are a much better driver than him.. It pretty much takes a full Stage2 WRX to run with a stock EVO (with = drivers)

    My $0.33

    I thought 4k was just about the sweet spot for launching?

    Ya the evo's boost is really high, i believe there boost is set somewhere around 19 or 20psi and then tappers down a few psi at the red line, and if he doesnt know how to luanch/ you are the better driver that could be the reason you beat him off the line


    anywho, good job

    It takes a turboxs stage 2+ to keep up with a stock EVO. Even with stage 2, 4th and 5th gear the EVO will slowly walk.

    About 5200 rpm is the sweet spot...

    As long as you slip the clutch you'll be ok...
