Ahhh...its all good man, sounds to be a safe little run in with a Lancer (Evo?). Corvette > :nuts: < Lancer

I have a 04 Z06 and i only once got to play, it was with a Viper SRT10 Coupe on some twistes, and lets just say i forgot i had a copper colored car in my rear veiw :spanked: . Now i know what Z06 is really about, so much more than just added hp. More horsepower is just an added feature to race car inspired street machine.

sounds fun, I wish the viper owners here( all 2 of them) would use their cars for something other than a wax disposal surface. I even ran into one on the track....all for show, the owner wouldn't run it.

As far as what kinda Lancer, I have no idea, I may google it later. It had a large "heat extractor" openings and a wide open grill(probally aftermarket) and the largest intercooler I've ever seen. I knew a guy that had an 1100HP TA who's intercooler was smaller than this thing, not saying the Lancer was that powerful, but just to try and describe how big and overkill this intercooler was.I never saw the back of it , but when he was at my front fenders, there looked to be triangles(?) ,sorta like a fairing on the back of the roof. It really stood out from the yellow. The front resembled the newer eclispe as well. If you guys know exactly what this thing is, let me know.:thumbsup:

Based on your description, that's a Lancer Evolution MR. Still no match for a newer Vette, but for a 4-door import sedan they're pretty quick.

It is a match for a new vette on the 1/4, they run 12.9 stock. They are just no good on the highway due to awd and aero deficiencies . My buddy has an 06 MR and I spanked the piss out of him in my vette from a 40 roll.

I did see that it had lettering (body color) and some roman numerals in red, but I didn't catch what it said, but it was longer than "evo" ,maybe "e v o l u t i o n****", I was just curious, and thanks for the info, I guess I need to do some research on some of these rice rockets before too long. I like to know what I kill.......:D

I believe it said " EVERLOSING " And Evilways , I am very ashamed of you too ! So bring your car over to my house and park it in the driveway for 2 weeks . Besides , I've been wanting to test out your new mods [ thinking about heads and a ported intake ] . I hope something like that doesn't happen to me , usually if I downshift to 2nd gear and about 4000 RPM , the sound is enough to make them back off . Talk with you later ... Larry

Good Kill.. Those Lancer Evolutions are no joke depending on how modded they are. Maybe that wasnt an Evolution because they have some of the best handling in the world (Even compared to a Murcielago). Still no match for a Vette..

I don't know the laws in North Carolina but in Georgia if your caught for "racing" you "give up" your vehicle and serve time and give up your license.
All that for a few fleeting moments you show up some clown in a Honda! :laughing: Better watch over your shoulder at all times:thumbsup:

We don't have that law as of yet, but rest assured, when we do, it'll cause alot more fatalities of people trying to get away from the cop than the street racing it prevents saves. It's a very stupid law.

Actually, it's a very common law (street racing) in most states. Trying to "get away" from the cops is major jail time and you still "give up" your car. I think most states have adopted this law as they feel "racing" is a serious offence. You may want to check with your local law enforcement agency to be sure. In any event....watch your sixes for ole "smokey". :D

I'm up for a good race, but I've made some strong guide lines.

1. You have to be worthy. I'll mess with a F430, 997, or a Gallardo. Imports and younger drivers I avoid. Before I race someone I watch on how they are driving their car and the body language of the driver. Younger drivers of these imports are twitchy and inexperienced. They often have no regard for traffic and will weave in and out of traffic at high speeds. That is a disaster waiting to happen.

2. Not on the streets, only on the freeway. I will never race anyone from stop light to stoplight or on any street. To dangerous. People are walking around, riding their bikes, and people are pulling out into traffic. While your at high speeds. Disaster waiting to happen.

3. No weaving in and out of traffic. I share the road, I don't own it. Here in Washington, if the person you are racing crashes and hurts someone, you are just as quilty and responsible as the driver who crashed.

4. There's always a time and place. You might be on the perfect stretch of freeway, where the next exit is miles down the road. No cops anywhere, but there's traffic. Can't do it, even if it's a LP 640. The main concern is you can't hurt anybody if you crash, and if you say you won't crash. You should not be racing anybody. Things happen, especially at high speeds.

5. Know and be familiar where you are racing, so you know what to expect. I like bridges and causeways. There is just shoulder, no on or off ramps. Cops can't really hide and it's usually staight and you have some distance.

6. I don't like passengers. I had an E55 roll up on me and wanted to race. He had people in his back seat. I was over it, even though the conditions were perfect. No traffic, straight wide open freeway, clear of any troopers. The thing is if he crashed that's a lot of people getting hurt.

7. Keep both hands on the steering wheel. Not one hand on the shifter and the other on the wheel.:crazy: You can't steer with the shifter.

The main concern for any race track is safety. That's why they have flags, driver's meetings and all that. Your main concern should not be winning the race. It should be safety. With good driving skills and and a strong car. The win will happen, trust me.:devil:
