I was the passenger in my friend's s2000 (older ones, 00+, stock), they tried to race from a roll and from a stop ~ same back alley where I raced the Evo last month, about 1/4 mile long, inhabited solely by crickets and a family of rabbit.

The first one was from a roll, and I was the countman. They did a 1st gear roll, about 20mph rolling, when my "three" was heard, the s2000 jump ahead, probably about half a car (as expected due to Evo's lag). Through out the whole stretch, I was expecting the Evo to jump and take the lead (anxiously kept looking towards my right), but to my amazement, the Evo stays at the S2000's rear. The S2000 won by half a car, no turbo, and 30+hp, 50+tq away, unbelieavable.

The second one didnt last very long, my friend missed a gear on the launch, and the Evo took the lead, but we all can see that the Evo will definetly kill the S2000 even if he had a good launch.

But all in all, to be able to even up with an Evo from a roll, Im starting to think that the Evo is overated when it comes to being a speed demon (flame suit on).

thats a joke if i ever heard one. its more like Evos and STIs are the new Civics
i disagree. stock EVOs and STIs get the same if not better times than a stock supra TT gets in the quarter. if any car is the new civic, its the 240sx.

Nice kill by the S2000, but I'm gonna have to disagree with you on the EVO being overrated. You are just under rating the S2000 which in stock form can trap over 100MPH, the EVO (WHEN PROPERLY DRIVEN) also traps anywhere from 99-104MPH stock depending on the model version and year. How can anybody call a car that traps over 100MPH slow, last time I checked that's about 5MPH or more higher than a stock IS300. It's not that the EVO is slow from a roll, it's just that it's much faster from a dig, which sometimes overshadows it's abilities from a roll. After 100MPH I do admit the EVO does start to lose a little bit of it's steam (mostly due to it's gearing especially for the 5-Speeds), but not to the point where it can be consider anywhere remotely near slow. Now throw mods on the EVO and it really starts to shine, and to keep up with one with cams your going to need to make atleast 360RWHP. The ease to mod an EVO is amazing, just check this list I found on evolutionm.net, I'm amazed at how many are running so fast in the USA in such a short period of time, I might just have to get myself an EVO-

Pardon the obvious but are they all stock?

My point is, Ive seen Evos being regarded as the stock speed demon through magz and medias, most 1/4 time showing mid 13s (Ironically, most real stock Evos that Ive seen usually run at low 14), but after seeing a race between the s2000 which later was followed by the Evo against a G35c, I can conclude that Evos are regarded as being fast mainly due to their awd capability.

My Evo friend just recently told me that when he was racing my car last month, he secretly bumped his psi to 30 without my knowledge, and still I beat him (running 11psi).

From a roll, they are still fast (with 280+hp and all), but they are not THAT amazing.
The S2000 and G35c lose to the Evo (all three stock) when running from a stop, but from a roll, the Evo simply just can not provide the same feat.

I guess I was just a little dissappointed. I used to fear and hold Evos in awe even with my setup, but recent events have just turned my admiration away from Mitsu's mighty Evo.

Don't take this reply the wrong way, but honestly what do you expect from a car that only makes 230WHP-250WHP (DynoJet) in stock form, are you expecting 110-112MPH Trap Speed like the 350WHP+ Cobra or 107-110MPH Trap Speed like the 290-310WHP Camaro SS. The EVO will hang from a launch due to AWD, but after that, the EVO just can't match the power. I just think your expectations are way too high. Still a car that can trap 100MPH or more in the 1/4 mile is fast too me, and what really pulls the EVO from the rest of the pack (350Zs, S2000s, and even SRT-4s) is it's tunnability. The EVO is very easy to mod, and can achieve 350WHP+ for $2,000-$3,000. Most people who buy EVOs have no attentions on keep it stock.

Also the EVO is very capable of low 13s when PROPERLY driven. Just like any other car out there, the EVO has it share of unexperienced bad drivers. Getting the launch down right takes practice. I've driven AWD cars my whole life and honestly it took me some time to get the launch down in an EVO. 14 sec passes are not uncommon, but usually those 14 second passes are with 2.0+ 60ft. The EVO can achieve 1.6 60ft times on the stock clutch, and anything over 1.8 is a horrible launch IMO.

Also your friend who upped the boost to 30PSI, was this on the stock turbo, what were his mods? If stock turbo, he's lucky his sh*t didn't explode and there is no way the stock turbo even on race gas will hold that much boost. He in fact may be causing more harm by running such high boost. Very few turbos offered for the EVO can hold that much boost to redline, if your friend has a GT35R turbo and your claiming to have beat him, I'm gonna pull the bs flag on you all day.

evo is overated you newbie.

all those times are posted are from a dig. race one of those on a roll and you see those times mean shit in the real world. AWD is usually going to have a faster trap speed due to its launch, but this doesn't exactly mean the car is faster in every aspect of a race.

put a stock evo on a roll against a family sedan (5.5 gen maxima 6spd) and you'll see what happens.

in terms 1/4 mile time, the evo will eat one up but from a roll, those 4 bangers and there turbos aint shit.

my friends 14.3 stock maxima 6spd pulled half to one car over the evo, stock vs. stock. that was froma 70 mph roll mind you.

1/4 is all about suspension and tire work and who has AWD and such. it doesn't mean jack shit in the real world.

i don't have to say anymore.

Don't take this reply the wrong way, but honestly what do you expect from a car that only makes 230WHP-250WHP (DynoJet) in stock form, are you expecting 110-112MPH Trap Speed like the 350WHP+ Cobra or 107-110MPH Trap Speed like the 290-310WHP Camaro SS. The EVO will hang from a launch due to AWD, but after that, the EVO just can't match the power. I just think your expectations are way too high. Still a car that can trap 100MPH or more in the 1/4 mile is fast too me, and what really pulls the EVO from the rest of the pack (350Zs, S2000s, and even SRT-4s) is it's tunnability. The EVO is very easy to mod, and can achieve 350WHP+ for $2,000-$3,000. Most people who buy EVOs have no attentions on keep it stock.

Also the EVO is very capable of low 13s when PROPERLY driven. Just like any other car out there, the EVO has it share of unexperienced bad drivers. Getting the launch down right takes practice. I've driven AWD cars my whole life and honestly it took me some time to get the launch down in an EVO. 14 sec passes are not uncommon, but usually those 14 second passes are with 2.0+ 60ft. The EVO can achieve 1.6 60ft times on the stock clutch, and anything over 1.8 is a horrible launch IMO.

Also your friend who upped the boost to 30PSI, was this on the stock turbo, what were his mods? If stock turbo, he's lucky his sh*t didn't explode and there is no way the stock turbo even on race gas will hold that much boost. He in fact may be causing more harm by running such high boost. Very few turbos offered for the EVO can hold that much boost to redline, if your friend has a GT35R turbo and your claiming to have beat him, I'm gonna pull the bs flag on you all day.
Why do you keep referring to a modded evo when Im talking about the stock? A car that comes with a stock turbo will no doubt have a greater flexibility when it comes to tuning, in that matter, I have no doubt that evo shines.

In regard about my race, my friend have some minor bolts on with stock turbo. During the race, he was pushing 2.0 something kpa (I saw the peak hold myself) which was equivalent to 30+psi. It was risky and he was very lucky to be able to survive the race, but then again, I didnt know about it until 2 weeks after.

I dont have to bs anything about either the evo or s2000, heck I dont even own any of those cars, Im just merely stating my experience and my point of view, if you dont like it, ignore it.

In the past, I was able to even up on a 40mph roll race with a 13s evo (he claims) on my stage 1 setup at 6.5psi with no fmic. With my current setup, I know not on whether my car is capable on taking gt35r evos, but Im confident that even if I couldnt, I will still give them some pretty hard time.

Only a street racing jackass would ever be so stupid as to call an Evo overrated.

Stock vs stock, Evo vs S2000 from a roll is a very biased race.

Evo
Pro: AWD - good launch
Con: 5 speed - weaker top end

S2000 (2000-2004)
Pro: 6 speed - stronger top end
Con - Low torque - weak launches

Wow captain obvious your right they are from a dig, but you go out and try and trap 130MPH in 1/4 mile.

Wow it's always some friend did this, some guy did that, get the sh*t on tape man or your just talking out of your ass. I mean in some situations I try to use a little common sense, sorry.

Please don't say anymore, because what you had to say was really pointless and dumb. Overrated is a car that costs approx. $30,000 brand new and runs 15s stock, wait a minute that's what you drive :rolleyes:

There is no car, and I mean no car brand new under $35,000 that can match the EVOs all around performance.

Pointless and dumb is buying an Evo and racing it in a straight line.

Both are amazing cars in their own ways. Was the driver of the Evo alone in his car?

I agree that the Evo is overrated in its straight line performance. I only say this because published 5-60mphs times have been in the mid-high 6's to even low 7's. But the awd launch is to die for.

Agreed. Same can be said about the S2000.

Oh, my bad, I was scamming your post a tad too fast.
Anyway, just like you said, maybe my expectation towards Evo was a bit too high.

I still like them nonetheless. Probably will take one over the s2000.
