    EVO vs 05 GTO & RSX TYPE S!!!

    Oh my where do I start the GTO or the mighty rsx....Well alright I guess the GTO story first

    So tonite I was going out to wash the salt off the EVO because it looked like the salt truck guys came by and just threw salt directly on it. I work my way around and low and behold I look in the rearview mirror and there sets a new 05 GTO with the sweet cowl hood. So I was like oh man that is sweet but no way will he want any action. WRONG!!! For once in my life I didnt have to start the race or even act like I wanted some action this guy was straight up serious and with in like 4 minutes of window talking we finally got a light. Ahhhh the joy of launching a 350WHP car which I might add this is the only car I've ever felt the need to launch against. I ran the EVO up to triple digits and shut down and would say I had the GTO by a car a little more a little less hard to say. Man the adrenaline was pumping and that was my best kill in the history of a few stop light races But afterwords the GTO owner was very cool we talked for awhile and I talked him into taking me for a ride in the beast. Oh my the interior on these cars is a night and day difference from the EVO and the torque seems like it never ends. However at the end of the day alot of comments where given on both sides and we both had a blast.

    EVO - 1
    GTO - 0

    RSX (TYPE S) <---- means its fast...

    This is short and simple. Stock RSX thinks he's fast taunts me we catch a light I give him a little lead and destroy it by a few grey hound buses.

    I have no doubt no matter how much I mod the EVO unless I go bigger turbo we are going to be meat on anything over 120+...Even then with a few mods these cars(GTO) are gonna be monsters to handle but I had the advantage of racing an automatic and I had the AWD advantage, had the race continued I think we would of broke even around 110 to 115mph. And he would of just left me in the dust around 125+ but in my opinion I dont like to ever break over triple digits on public roads. But if you have roughly around 350+ WHP you will take him pretty easy

    Dam, your Evo has 350whp? You should have had that GTO buy more than a car? No?
    You should be running low 12's at least. The 05 GTO ran a 13.4 in car and driver.

    The 05 GTO's look nice, I'm considering one myself.

    Car and driver has this thing at 13.3 and 107 through the quarter. I have a feeling that both will be better and those are softer numbers than actual. The 107 is stage 4 territory, and 13.3 is nothing to sneeze at. Put some DR's on that thing, and it will fly out of the hole.

    4gsixty3, I would hope that you would destroy a stock GTO if you are running that much whp. If not, then I'm buying a GTO tomorrow!
    My transmission hates me. So does my wife because of this car.

    I'd either get an 05 GTO or a 04 cobra. To bad I need an AWD car

    You have 350whp and launch hard on him? If he was stock you should have smoked him big time up to 110mph or so.
    Did he already have mods on his 05 GTO?
    Stock they are running low 13s @ 107 mph on average.

    I like the new GTO. I never thought I'd like a Pontiac...weird.

    It needs different rims, IMO. The stock ones just look cheesy.

    New GTO looks better with the hood scoops,but they still need to do something more with that exterior.

    350awhp, you should've been able to walk a new GTO pretty easily from a dig.

    Still even if he was stock, or close to it, He should be in the low 13's. The new GTO's are running low 13's also. My friends EVO has 350whp. He runs 11.80's all day long.
