    Baited By An evo.

    Hi all..
    An old work collegue pulled up along side me in town earlier.. He now owns a 02 plate EVO FQ***
    However, from town back to our village is around 8miles of country road.
    Instead of him just overtaking and dissapearing into the sunset, he decided to sit behind me for around a mile revving, and blowing off his DV.

    Untill I eventually took the bait and put my foot down, he stuck with me to 80-90ish (on the short run of private road) untill overtaking and hitting Mach3 into the distance.

    Whats the spec of these FQ models? it had weird black spikes on the roof and some pink rear suspension bits if thats any use?.

    Crazy fast car though.
    Callum

    Depends which FQ it was, but they hit 60 in sub 5 seconds I believe. And have just as impressive figures for 30 - 70 etc etc. Not a fair fight at all!

    Most certainly was not a fair fight lol.

    Would have like to see how i faired against it in the twisties, but he was long gone.... And he would have probly embarrased me there too.

    Just found him Via F/B.
    Heres the car In question:

    Thats a 7 not a 8 and the air fins and wing mirrors are something he has put on their as they come on the evo 8.

    From the look of it he has quite a few aftermarket parts so seriously doubt its anywhere near standard.

    Ps, im not built for fight clubs.. at 5'6" 95kg... Im as flexible as a log.

    My freind got one evo 8. The one in picture is an evo 7 with many cosmetic mods.
    Evo is indeed a toy, soooo much space for modification and improvement and its a good bhp/$ car.
    It is lighter and the 4wd system is different, evo oversteers.
    The engine is so well built to take many upgrades and still reliable, but you cant live with an evo evryday, its more a race car lol
    Different car types evo vs S3 is not fair at all

    I had an 05 plate EVO the other week... I didn't launch off the lights as I wasn't sure if he would bite but he went for it as was 1/2 a car length in front so I put my foot in and pulled past him in second continuing to pull away... guessing it was a fairly std one though as my car isn't performing at her full potential at the moment but his face was a picture :D

    Agreed Tuffty!

    A guy down the road from me has a 360, saw it just after I bought my S3 and went past him at 70. Looked like he didn't even change down to come steaming passed. He was sat on his drive with a cup of tea by the time I got home!

    I just love poking fun at them myself.... Comes from the days of having a 200 BHP, stripped out Vauxhall Corsa B. People used to laugh at me at the lights with my bodykitted Chav Mobile, and then I used to skin them, and laugh back!

    Happy days *sigh*.

    We've all got to get our love of internal combustion from somewhere....

    It was a grade A Chav mobile though.... At least she wasn't 'all show and no go' though!

    Yeah, the good old C20XE Redtop. It was a bit special though - it had a Group N chip from Courtenay Sport, 4 branch and a really lary set of cams inside. That car was good fun, but I moved on and up from that! Had looooads of cars since that.

    It's on Pistonheads for sale at the moment actually, looking poorly. Feel like buying it back for a weekend play thing. My mate has just bought one with a 320 BHP C20LET inside. And that thing is scary. LOL.

    Anyway, stop making me think about the old days! I was only 18 then!

    Everyone used to say it looked like I'd ram raided Halfords! LOL.

    I wouldn't be seen dead in it now really, it would have to be toned down a lot!

    But then again, saying that, I've had a bright yellow A3, follwed by a yellow S3, neither being subtle. LOL.
