    STI's and EVO 8s will roll a 1320 of low low 13s. STi's are ALMOST high 12s stock, they've run like 13.08s stock everything.

    It's amazing that the Type R kept up with a 30k awd car, but the modifications list was quite extensive, more than that of the EVO.

    Can anyone tell me what an ITR was new? I'd venture to say around 25 grand? I know that's either a 97 or 98 because it's Championship White. With all those modifications he managed to stay dead even with a low 13 second car, badass. But I'd rather start out with the 30k car running low 13s with an LSD and AWD to boot.

    :/

    Are stock or close to stock EVO's just poop to begin with from a roll? :hmm:

    I had one by at least 2 cars on the freeway a few weeks ago. it had a carbon fiber hood and it looked like an upgraded intercooler but that's all I could tell it had. I liked how it looked but expected it to be faster.
