Evo Test Drive
so out of sheer boredom, me and my buddy went looking at car lots. checked out the Saturn Sky, which is a very nice sharp looking car for the price, reminds me of a mini-vette, in a way the miata almost looks like a mini viper.
test drove a 06 Evo RS. didnt like it at all. first off, ive never been in one, let alone drive one. felt small, like smaller than my GST Spyder felt, the wheel was small and close, the shifter was short with a skinny knob and the throws were effortless, but tranny still felt notchy(like a dsm). Soft pedal, i hate it when the gas pedal is too soft, i like a pedal you can rest your foot on and it doesnt fall to the floor.
performance wise, it was a 7/10. nimble as hell, like my buddy's grandmas miata. straightline, wasnt too impressed, it didnt really feel fast at all, i went from a 2nd gear roll at 20 up to end of 3rd cause i didnt want to scare the salesman, and i think it would have gotten eaten by my buddy's srt4 when it was stock. i know their potential, but i wouldve thought they were faster off the bat, unless, like the sales manager said, they shine more on the freeway, which i thought was blasphemy cause awd usually sucks more power the faster you go(awd drag), but maybe he was on to something. when i dropped it off and told them how i felt, they were like "WTF, are you Human?" dont get me wrong, its a nice car, just aint me.
didnt find any cobras, ford dealership tried their hardest to get me in a 05 GT. lol please. "but its faster than your 02!", "yeah but it looks like my *** and almost weighs more!"
