The evo is far more difficult to launch than any RWD or FWD car. Although you have AWD, doesnt mean that its a simple 4wd hole shot. there is generally no room for error. You either bog it, or roast the tires.

On the other hand, the 100 mph in the 1/4 seems slow to me considering I took mine to the track with 1700 miles on it (100% stock) and almost ran a 12 second 1/4 mile at 105 mph.

With about $900.00 invested I ran an 11.79 @ 116.

Here are two videos.


$900.00 invested.

just enjoy what you got, i find that easier than arguing lol
Sweet car, but you're a bit misleading there. Unless you own a shop, got a business discount on parts and did all the work and tuning yourself, there is no way that is only $900 in mods. Even if you did have all the above, the average person will be paying more to run an Evo that quickly so thats not really a fair price to say. Back on topic, your Evo has at least $2.5k worth of mods. Pulley, tuned, and filtered M3 should run a slower time by a tad, but with a higher trap speed. Sick car nonetheless, but not $900 in go fast mods, sorry. My STI's parts- Turboback was $1,500, Perrin Short Ram $170, and tune was $900.
