Mitsubishi EVO

I got to run my first EVO today. I've ran a bunch of STIs but I've never even seen an EVO before, wonder why they are so much rarer then the Suburus? Anyways, the car looked brand new (that or it is garage kept and not a daily driver). It had a red badge on the back right side of the bumper, I couldn't tell what it said. I got up beside him on the interstate to see if he wanted to do the 3 honks playing thing. As soon as I got up beside him he took off, catching me off guard. I would've had it down in 2nd or 3rd had I known he was gonna do that.

Anyways, by the time my auto downshifted after I nailed it, he had a car on me, but that's where his short lived victory ended. I pulled up beside him and shot him a "that was a beeyotch move" glance and kept rolling. Pulled on him pretty hard. I let off at 150. He was a good ways back, but funny thing is, he never let off either. I guess he was seeing if my car would peter out and he'd catch me on the top end. I had to slow up and hit my offramp to go to work and a few seconds later when he finally caught up to me, he went roaring by, still at w.o.t., lol, bumble fart can screaming its lungs out. Silly ricers...

Was looking at some pics of them online. I believe the red badge I saw said MR. Just a trim option I guess.

Do you know if it was an EVO 8, 9, or 10?

My co-worker has a dead-stock EVO 10 and he is scared to race me on the interstate. We drive the same way and he always tries to leave like 15 to 30 minutes before I do...lol

On the other hand my best friend has an 04 STi , and from a 60 kick he immediately pulls almost 1 car but I hold after that and I think I would start pulling back. He never goes above like 90 or so when he does those kicks so I dont know what my car would do to his on the interstate. But sadly so far I have lost on his terms.

I drive an 04 - A4. Intake box mod, and muffler delete / from Nashville, TN

A car load of people in a EVO X and a car load of people in my GTO, the EVO X still can't pull on me.
