    Latest Motor Trend March issue

    did anyone see the new issue. It had a comparison with all three Evo trims Evo 8, RS, and MR. And it showed that the RS is the fastest they even got 4.4 seconds to 60. Makes me think the RS was a ringer.

    2008 VW GTI, DSG

    My buddy has an RS, and personally I dont think its worth it. You pay for a few ticks faster in the 1/4mile and save a few thousand but look at all you lose. Throw on a DP and you have a base evo just fast as an RS, but you still keep all the extra's... as a daily driver the RS is kinda dumb imo.

    The RS was the fastest in terms of accelaration, but was the slowest around the track. The regular Evo beat it and the MR stomped both of them. They tried to trivialize it, but the MR was definitely the fastest one around the track.

    Its really a mitsu Spec C.
    The STi Spec C is the same way. Striped down to nothin. Its a good buy if you only want it as your track car.

    Whole different car. The RS6 its much faster then the S4. But the S4 comes close to handling. The RS6 is a much bigger car and the S4 feels cramped.

    If I ever bought an EVO it would be an RS. Personaly, if I wanted a nice plush ride I would get a mercedez or an audi. If I bought an EVO it would be to tear some people up.

    The rs I think is around 70-90 pounds lighter than the mr and normal evo. I think it is great that you can buy an evo with none of the power windows and locks bullcrap. That's what a sports car is about. I wish subaru would do the same thing in the us. They won't because us Americans are a bunch of wimps.
