05 SS/SC vrs Lancer Evolution

I was driving home the other night minding my own business as I come to a stoplight. While i'm on the phone, I look over and notice there's a guy in some sort of EVO, maybe an MR (I dont know the different types). Anyway, I notice him checking my car out and realize he's going to try to race me. So I tell my girlfriend (who I'm on the phone with), that i've gotta go b/c this guy in a lancer is going to try to race me. She gets all pissy but ends up letting me off the phone before the light turns green. Anyway, When the light hits green neither of us accelerated hard we were just casually driving next to eachother. Once I shifted into second I decided to stay in second :-), and I step on it. He also steps on it, and we are about even. As I shifted into third he was still next to me, not gaining at all which really surprised me. As I shifted into 4th gear from about 65000 RPMs in 3rd gear I noticed I was going about 80MPH, and decided to put on the brakes. To sum this long story up, I was very surprised I stayed with an evo!

If you have mods it sounds right from a roll. If you would have both left hard at the light you'd have been looking at taillights.nice run!

Well, From what I heard it sounded like a normal evo, and looks- it appeared stock but i'm not sure! My friend claims his evo is modded.. he even asked if I was mistaken and wondered if I had raced a normal Lancer.. lol! anyway to answer your question i'm not sure if it was modded but i doubt it if I could keep up with him only having stage 2!

yup... it was from a 5 mph roll... From a dig I was playing catch up. once we passed the camera he was half a car ahead.
oh and I don't have an Injen intake, it's a K&N Typhoon, both work the same so it's no big deal, but yeah!

well an evo is an evo you have the regular evo, evo rs, and evo mr, they just all differ from diff. feature but the power is the same for all of them. like the RS has carbon fiber seats, 5-speed, no electric windows, no cd player, just the bare essentials...but the MR has everything
