Yeah, really. Just be glad they made it out to be as fast as they did.

For every letter they get bashing them, they'll probably get another agreeing with how ugly they are. I won't comment with which kind I'd send.

Re: LA Times is going to get letters..

Not sure what the problem is with the story. The EVO is fast and it is Ugly so what is the problem. I dont know about the EVO outpacing Porsches and Ferraris on the street or track but in ralley racing I can see it.

Re: LA Times is going to get letters..

They are ugly and if it wasnt for AWD they wouldnt be nearly as fast, thats why they get killed from rolls. I think they are neat little cars, just really ugly.

dude, you are entitled to your own opinion, but that doesn't mean everyone else has to agree with it.

eh if they werent awd, theyd just be a lancer.

and killed from rolls? *cough* AMS *cough*. awd does have more drivetrain loss, but its not like throwing an anchor out the back at 120. and surely not as horrid of a feeling as shifting into 5th gear on our cars at 130 and losing all forward momentum.

but that article was pretty much on key. its ugly. its fast. umm, that pretty much sums up the Evo.

Re: LA Times is going to get letters..

AMS is not stock lol WTF.... im talking about stock ones anyone can make a turd run what ever they want... purly stock is what im talking about. If I had that much power i would expect to perform good all around, but being AWD it pays for it up top a bit.
