you should definitely make sure he is stock. All he needs is some form of reflash, and then i don't think you stand a chance. But if he is 100% stock, he'll take you off the line for sure, but it should make for a fun race.

DON'T FORGET TO FILM IT FOR US

sounds like he's going to a drag strip so a roll is out of the question. But you should def be able to EASILY catch up with him before the 1/4 is up. Just be sure you trust him that the car is actually bone stock.

Speaking of racing Evo's, actually this isn't too relative (not even a Mitsu), but today I raced a bug-eyed black STi. The guy was glued to my bumper and definitely was a bit faster in the long run. I was surprised, by the time I hit 120 he was goin prob 130 or so and I was just like "Okay, you win". Gave a smile and signaled for him to lead the way. I could tell he was modded.

I need a goddamn V2. Or a JB2. Or a Dinan reflash. Or a SSTT. Damn.

He probably isn't stock since he's offering to race you for that amount of cash.

If I'm not mistaken, EVO IX is faster in a straight line then the EVO X.

But I thought the old Evo IX was always slower than the new Evo X?
Hmm.. But either way the OP needs to be careful, if that guy has the new Vishnu tuned Evo X chip, then he might see himself in some trouble.

fill your tank only 1/4, so you save some weight..
and make sure the evo is completely stock, you never know if he has tuned ECU..

Rolling start you will murder him.

1/4 mile i bet you can reel him in by the end

Some mag did a comparo a few weeks ago between the new sti, evo x and 335xi and the 335xi beat both in a straight line. I would imagine that in a 1/4 mile your turbo tuner would probably more than make up for the solid launch of the xi
