I am calling BS

I was out in the goat Friday and i parked next to a house that had a barn fire going on. i got out the car and a guy said "Nice GTO man" i said thx and he told me to look at the Lancer over there. he said " it looks stock but i put over 10g's in it". i am like wow thats a good grip. He said he got stage 3 turbo, bigger intercooler. he said he took a vette (c5) down and sti stage 3 down and some srt4s. he had me going until he said "i had that lancer converted from AWD to RWD and it can go. why would some one go to RWD and give up traction

I've only seen that driveline conversion done when it's with a V8. The only gain I can see from him doing that is what he loses in traction, he will possibly gain in less hp/tq loss through the drivetrain... maybe! Maybe he's wanting a top end set up more than a quick off the line set up. I don't know. He could be telling the truth.

I take it was an EVO that he somehow disabled the AWD system in it.

There ya go....


Even with those mods, considering his "RWD" mod, I still doubt it would be able to take a Stage 3 STI, I was neck and neck from a roll with a stage 3 STI for one gear, until he started pulling on me fast.

maybe he opted for a stronger rear end to handle that 10g's worth of work?
