One thing shinoo forgot to mention... The EVO was waking/running away from a C5 vette with an ok driver. I've said it before and I will say it again... the EVO is an incredible car, you have to drive one to believe it. IMO, one of the greatest cars in the world.shinoo said:I bought one a month ago. I'm very impressed. The car is exceptional - performance wise. I went on a PCA drive yesterday with it to Julian. Little Bastard rode shotgun. The EVO pretty much kept pace with a F355 and a 996. Both cars tried in vain to lose the EVO. Much to their chagrin, the EVO stayed with them.
I have not yet tracked the car. I expect it to excel. I'm very happy with it. The steering response is fantastic. The Brembo brakes are confidence inspiring. Quick acceleration. The Recaro seats are excellent.
It feels like a 4 door Elise - almost.
Yap, with a budget of about $5K you can get the EVO up to about 500 bhp!gmoneyjive said:One more thing - not sure if you are into modding cars, but the evo takes exceptionally well to mods. It doesn't take much to get it into supercar territory. A few months back in Sport Compact Car they had a tuner/evo comparison of 8 or 9 tuners, and they had evos doing 3.5 0-60, 11.3 1/4 mile and 1.06 on the skidpad.
I'm glad you have a good sense of humor. I know looks of cars are totally subjective... I am sure there are going to be a lot of people that think the Elise is ugly.1FASTMX5 said:LOL
Not the 300+hp variety
PS Little Bastard any guesses as to who The Stig really is?

At first, I really didn't like the looks of it (or the sti for that matter), but it has grown on me. I guess reading about how incredible of an engineering feat the car is might've helped. I think the test drive really helped me like the looks too.1FASTMX5 said:Such an exceptional car but why so ugly?
