this is sick as hell.

 You must have stopped watching the vid halfway through.

An EVO or STI are considerably more than $30k, so this discussion is pointless.  And if you "hook it up", it will cost you much more.

the second half of the evo video made the car out to be a joke. he got smoked by a 1.6 liter rental car and they said the evo only gets 4mpg or some shit. it also only takes premium gas.

fuck that

he said 42k pounds English money, in the usa it would be closer to 30k.

http://www.mitsubishicars.com/MMNA/jsp/index.do Starting at 32k that's close enough. Keep in mind that's a brand new 2009 Evo, just think about the possibilities if he gets an older or used one.

The car is fast stock, it's his choice if he wants to hook it up.

Regular Lancers start at 14k

dude buy a 03-04 cobra. my brother has one and let me tell you,that thing is no joke. it ran 12.50's in the quater when it was bone stock. he swapped the pulley on his supercharger and went 11.60's. on top of that he added a 100shot of juice and it does 10.90's. he still has a top speed of 160+. the only thing he has ever lost to is another cobra. i've seen him beat vipers,vettes,and lambo's in the quarter. i would seriously consider buying one if i were you. most of them are priced under 20k,and you can add mods for a fairly reasonable price. my brother has about 2k in mods.

 The Evo X FQ400 in the video is around $49k pounds.  That is roughly US$ 75-80k

who cares?

its still a slow peice of shit that got smoked by a 1.6 liter fiat rental car

LMAO!

and im not a mitsubishi hater. i have a mitsubishi eclipse but that video you posted completely backfired on you. you tried to make the car out to be some kind of world beater, then you go and post a video that made the car out to be a joke.

4 miles per gallon and it only takes premium gas? GTFO of here with that bullshit! a corvette gets better gas milage.

nissan 350Z all day. its handles good enough and in a straight line drag race, the car hauls ass. it will snap your head back and plant you in the seat.

Clearly if you dont drive the car correctly and try to floor it in 3rd your not gonna get very far.

If that turbo lag happens to you, you really dont need a car like that. 4 miles per gallon from racing full speed around a track. The premium bullshit may only be cars in england, I havent looked into that. If you cant handle a manual Evo you should probably go with an automatic Lancer non Evo.

Subaru's are slow as fk if you want max power, if you mod then you wont get nearly the power gains with Subaru as Evo, thats the facts I've owned both. Evo takes to mods like no other car, just crazy

Subaru's are way expensive anyway for mods

thier isnt a comparison when it comes to power, period

and cant argue with me on this one, I've owned 1 WRX, 1 STI and 1 Evo

I know

Agreed.

My 08 STi was close to $40K out the door.  The new Evo's are about the same.  If OP is considering used cars than a used Z06 should probably be at the top of the list.

get a used EVO 9 RS

Subaru's are ok if you just want stock, they are a better daily driver, they drive nice and the interior is a bit better but nobody gets these cars for that. Neither are plush anyway

I'd never get a Subaru again, they just dont put out power with simple mods

 No true.  Here's the dyno of my 08 STi with TBE, Engine Management, and good fuel only.  Nothing else.  It made 320whp and 382 wtq.  I haven't seen too many evo's make 382 wtq on stock everything.  People think that STI's can't make power because most of the people that own them and work on them are retards.  There are better tuners for the Evo and it helps that Mits put a nice turbo on them stock.

You haven't been racing much then.  You just showed your rice, buddy.

A 9/11 turbo?  Brand new would spank you @ 11.710 http://www.dragtimes.com/Porsche-911-Turbo-Timeslip-15009.html

Who knows - Could have been a 1989 9/11 that runs a fast 13.4 1/4? OooOooo

2001 runs only a 12.3 still.

What Z06 are you talking about now?  C6Z06 on stock tires runs high 11's with no mods.  Did you go from a dig? did you do a rolling start?  The only way your evo even with those mods to match the z06 would be a 5k rpm launch and let off at 110mph because past that the z06 says bye bye.

C5Z06 12.4

Oh wait.

These cars are all STOCK - you are talking about a car that already had modifications on it.

3-4k of mods?  How about actually listing them out?

We can play the mods game as well.  Add 6k to the C6Z06 and you'll have a 10 second car.

Guess what else?  The C6Z06 gets better gas milage as well.

 You can get SHITLOADS of gently used M3 bad-ass-ness for $30k or less. If I had the bucks I would have pulled the trigger twice this year on M's that were listed for $26k or less.

 Top Gear has since done another Evo vs Sti test (Late last year/early this year?) They tested the Evo 10 vs the latest Subaru Sti.
Mitsubishi fixed most their problems, and the Evo beat the pants of the Sti.
Unfortunately i can't find the vid on youtube, so here is the link to the Top Gear website (And if somebody knows how to embed the vid, PLEASE do so!!!!)
www.topgear.com/uk/videos/evo-vs-scooby#/uk/video-search

www.topgear.com/uk/videos/evo-vs-scooby

Awesome vid. Well worth the watch.
