I would just like to let you guys know that the new Evo 8 is a monster.

Goodluck racing that thing. God knows I may have had a chance with my previous car, but a friend and I went up against one today and got spanked like 5 year olds. Next time you see on give it all you got and let me know what happens.

It'd be nice to hear from someone spankin' it back for me..

I spanked one on this canyon road, but I think its cuz I drive that road everyday for practice, and I knew what it was doing, but damn..they are fast..I got to sit in the rally one at a car show, and stuff, SOO nice.

those are insane cars. People say its better for the hardcore driver than than the WRX STi. But I say M3's better any day, even though its a little slower for 0-60? I think by .2 seconds if I remember my numbers correctly. But the WRX Sti get's down to 0-60 in 4.9 seconds. Damn.

yeah.. theres no way a e30 could beat an EVO. It handles much better and is way faster.

if you want a bimmer to beat an Evo, I suggest you post in the E46 section, maybe E36 if your lucky. the Evo's are to aZn(no offence) to be beaten easily

I have seen an e36 beat a ferrari.

I have seen an e36 with 600 bwhp.

I've even seen a neon beat a viper for god's SAKE!

It can be done!

Ps You're not helping a new e36 owner feel too happy with his car.

some of those new neons (srt?) are surprisingly fast. there is one here in ABQ. on the bottle that will rape almost any car on the street here.

Those evos are very quick. I can beat them stock for stock. A lightly modded one will take me easily.

If someone rapes one on video and posts it up, I will be a happy man. I might even pay you. :P :lol:

lol, i'd love to see one get it hard from behind without lubrication. last night i saw one get pulled by a half a car by a twin turbo RX-7 on the bottle. the evo had him off the start but by the time they hit second the RX was even they stayed like that until third, then the rx hit the button for like a second just enough to pull ahead and walk away with the win... it was kinda gay he didnt stay on it to just pull him by like a car or two...

Yeah, we have a twin trubo'd rx-7 that can handle it, but I'd really like to see a Bimmer do it.

perhaps a modded Z8...

weighs less, goes faster and still very satisfying.

what kind of specs are on the EVO?
