PostSubject: EVO X slow?!   Wed Oct 10, 2007 11:49 pm

So I was flipping through some mags at publix while my girl was buying hair care products and I read in Car & Driver or some other biased mag that the X runs a 13.8 1/4 mile?! WTF! Does this sound way wrong to anyone else? Skidpad numbers were .97g, the car is a tad heavier but makes more power. I don't think it's possible to run over a half a sec. slower...

I guess we'll have to see when it finally hits the streets.

But I tend to agree with you on this one.

They did a testing on the car in one of the import mags this month, I forgot which one. They proved that on paper it was "slower" than the 9 but when put on the track with the same driver, going balls out, that the 10 was 1 sec faster arround the track, which was Mitsu's proving track in Japan. The car is slightly heavier but has the AYC and YAW control now.

Optional two-piece rotors? Cool ... That'll throw the SCCA for a loop ...
