me and my buddy who has (well had) an evo IX went frumaroll at about 60 to 120 and i beat him. at the top of 4th he was slightly ahead of me, but when i shifted to 5th i pulled back ahead and was about a car length ahead. mind you we were stock for stockyea they (one of the various reviewers) said something about "if ur in second and floor it, it wouldn't do much" i mean the gear/revs do matter but i also hear that an evo in the same situation would perform better from a roll somewhat.
yea i can dig that cuz a guy that I know that works for Mitsub. told me almost the same thing. This may be a lil off topic but that burly rumble sound that sounds like a huge evil cat purring, does that sound come after some exhaust work or with every stock STi?The Evo wins in pure performance, but fails in every other category. The interior is terrible, the car honestly only looks good from the front I think, and pretty much every single mechanic I have ever talked to has told me to stay far, far away from Mitsubishi, their reliability is terrible apparently.
