Well we can't win them all. Some cars are just faster then ours!! I played with a RSX this weekend and smoked him with ease!! Still have yet to race a type-s though.

Yes, the Evo VIII is [email protected]$$. I'd love to park one of those in my garage (even though it is still an Lancer). The dealer here had two sitting in the showroom, and all I can say is mmmmmmmmmmmmm. If you ever get a chance, just go check out the BRAKES on those things.

But I too have a similar story like that, but mine involves a WRX. He didn't smoke me, but he pulled me a couple of car lenghts. Moments like that make me long for a chip!

Oh, and the Recaro seats in the Evo's are pure butter!!!!

Like I said, they had BOTH of these setting IN the showroom. So they weren't going to break them out unless you were going to buy it.

vw needs to send us a polo wrc to compete with the evos and wrx's...although i'm sure some of you have modded your dubs enough to compete already

Yea, if the Evo wasn't based on the dog faced car it would probably be cool, but I would still go with the WRX. But who am I kidding, I would much rather have a 206, or an RS4

if i had the money i would take the evo over any car, except the mustang saleen s281 extreme! the evo is not a car...it's a MONSTER! 271 horsepower, 4 wheel drive, and the suspension used simply makes it better than most cars around.
my dub is cool but if i had a choice i'd take the evo simply b/c the evo is my fav car. don't get me wrong i love my dub, but the evo is an evo!

It's all about personal opinions. In my opinion I dont need a superfast car since there is no way in hell i can drive that fast on the streets in chicago and if i would i would kill my self. The reason I got a dub is because I just love the look of it and the endless modifications someone can do to make it look nice and not riced out. I got a 2.0 and its slow compared to vr6 and 1.8t but atleast it looks good. To tell you the truth I'd rather have a slow good looking car then a fast honda civic. But again thats just personal opinions. EVO's are monsters as you guys say but im just not diggin the look of it.

The way I look at it, they are putting out 271 with a turbo, 24V VR6's are putting out 200 without a turbo...let's see what happens when we turbo a VR6... muahaha
