Nice, very nice. Care to post a link to some more information about it?

Here's some more information. Make sure you scroll past the bullshit ads to see the rest of the story.

You should do a side by side of the best available under $50K

don't bother, he'll only write about the EVO.

I don't need to do a side by side. The best car available under 50k is the Lancer Evolution 9. It is Hands down the most versatile car ever created. Strong enough to spank V8's, and agile enough snake it's way around any hairpin curves.

The EVO has every aspect of performance an 80-100k car would have, at only 35k.

You're just jealous Simon, because you hate ricers, and you know for a fact this car will destroy just about anything.

What about...
the R34 Skyline is pretty damn bad-assed,
or the last gen of the RX-7 with the 13B, or the 20B out of a Cosmo (2 litres of rotary and a twin turbo to boot.)
The Toyota Supra,
the nissan 300Z 2+2,
Even a MR2 spyder with the turbo is a force to be reckoned with.
How about the lotus Elise,
or a M3 BMW?
Maybe a R32 Volkswagon GTI.
Better yet how about the 1987 Dodge Omni GLH? 2.2Liter intercooled Turbo.

The only problem with the old AWD setup that the Japs used is that it has 3 open carriers, so that there is still only one drive wheel. The new setups aren't like that, but Audi does it better.

The list goes on.

Sometimes I get the impression that Ndammitt's better at this sort of stuff than cohort. Or me.

That is an impressive list, and they're all good cars, but don't mess with an EVO 9, or a WRX Sti for that matter. When they're the best bang for the buck, and they consistently win every rave they're pitted against, it's not hard to see why they're so awesome. The all-wheel has gotten better over the years, with both the EVO and WRX boasting ACD's that are driver adjustable from the cab, allows for maximum traction on any surface. You have to look at how well these cars perform in any case. With 0-60 times in the mid 4's, and a 60-0 braking distance shorter than most supercars, that's a force to be reckoned with. Not too mention these cars can pull .95 g's on a 200 ft. slalom in stock trim. They do everything overall exceptionally well. They go fast straight, but more importantly, they go fast through the corners.

What check and mate? I didn't think you liked any performance car that wasn't a naturally aspirated large displacement rear wheel drive domestic. Have you finally come around to appreciate the wonders that are AWD forced air induction?

He might, at least in the case of an EVO. I don't care what vintage of cars anybody is into, if you think an EVO sucks, then you're a complete idiot and you shouldn't be around anything sporting four wheels. I think even the most hardcore V8 guys can agree with me on that.

Rice or not. Technology is cool.

Garble, you may be an engineer at GM, but you know fuck-all about cars. Cohort and yer brother smoke yer ass when it comes to that shit.

Depends on what you mean when by know about cars. I'm much more interested in 'why?' and 'how?' than in 'what?'. The answers to those questions aren't really interestingr blog fodder. If you want to know the HP of a 1990 Mitsubishi ask cohort ndammitt. They're both far more facile with that type of knowledge than I am.
