really. I mean it does nada in the WRC and quite frankly all it reminds me of is that Who Am I movie with Jackie Chan.
"nada in the WRC"??? Dude, are you kidding? Gee, they only won the manufacturers championship in '98, '99, and '00! Tommi was driving for them, he won the driver's championship in a Mitsu in '96,'97,'98, and '99!!!!masanz1 said:really.

RNN14 said:Well let's see stop associating the Evolution with your US Mitsubishi's cause they were built by totalling different companies and under vastly different management. The Evolution hasn't had even a fraction of the problems that the Eclipse had in the US. The blocks are roughly the same but yet there were internal differences. Can a WRX bone stock run 1.4Bar of boost, come with Brembo 4 piston brakes, have an option for a RS model with no A/C or power anything so its lighter with a lower price, capable of using the e-brake to turn without damaging the cars transfercase, have huge aftermarket backing at reasonable prices, be beat on all day long and not have to worry about the transmission coming apart? I doubt the WRX meets those. I mean lets be realistic none of you have driven them, you've never worked on one and you can speculate as much as you want but in person and at a price of $28K fulling loaded out the door there is no way in hell you would have bought your WRX. Say what you want about the looks but the new WRX isn't a beutiful work of art either. The main reason that the Evo had problems in the WRC was summed up best by Tommi when he told a reporter that he wanted to leave cause Diamler now wasn't putting nearly as much money into it as when Mitsubishi made the decisions.
