It just doesnt get better than this!! After countless pages of arguing in forums as to whose car is better....there was outright war happening in Englishtown on September 11, 2004.

The theme was simple. Drag racing between the EVO's and WRX's (some stock, some blown modified) to establish whos king!

Result?The Subarus were owned!! The Mitsubishis demolished the entire lot!! I read somewhere that the EVO's won 90% of the races, and while the fastest EVO posted a 10 second time...the fastest WRX was on the higher end of 11.xx

The Subaru owners came up with all kinds of excuses, but then...if you have to race, you have to be prepared. Beside a lot of tuners are of the opinion that you can create a faster EVO for much less money, time and patience than the STi.

So.....The EVO is king of the drag. Its faster around a track. Its easier to modify. Why couldnt Mitsubishi just make it look a little better?

these cars should be proven on hard ### dirt tracks not compared on a st line 400 mt drag. i can pick up a souped up nissan and beat the sh** of these cars on a st line drag.

the scooby and the evo are pure bred rally cars.

Thanks for the appreciation GTO.
I really cant write the kind of reviews u guyz do.Infact i`m utterly bad at that.But will try for sure.
I`ve also driven my friends Tommi Makinen Edition.And it surely does rock.She a Pakistani girl,who provided me with the Pakistan super-car pics.hehe.
Although on the TM my time was a lil better at 11.9s.

Here are a few more pics of my Broz and my Friends car.













Hope u like em......

I believe there was another WRX / EVO comparison test. Except there were races on a race circuit, and then races on a dirt track.

The EVO came out on top on the tarmac (i guess AYC etc etc)
But, the WRXs rocked them on the dirt track.
