    In 2003, Motor Trend tested a selected group of performance vehicles against one another. Included in this group was the 03 SVT Cobra and the Nissan Lancer Evolution. In these tests, the Cobra which has over 100 hp more than the evo was totally dominated. Sure the evo ran a faster 0-60 time in 4.59 secs compared to the svt's of 4.87 but the real story is the 600 ft slalom, the evo ranked 2nd while the svt ranked a lowly 8th which was also below test average. What does this all mean? The lowly handling of this Ford piece of junk forces it to be killed on the track by a 2 litre 4 banger. Just goes to show you how pathetic Ford is, stick with a real automaker, Chevy.

    Mitsubishi Evolution....

    Not Nissan.

    ...and maybe you missed it, but the EVO was quicker in the Slalom than the CHEVY Z06 and DODGE Viper.

    ....not that slalom really means anything......

    Its not Nissan, stupid. And in a straight line, 0-60 was the Mitsu's only win against the Cobra. On the street, or on the track, you dont drive up to 60 and then stop. 0-100 it beat it by more than a second, and in the standing mile, almost two.

    street light to street light the cobra would lose.
     
  5. Re: The Nissan Evo ate this thing up!!!!

    No, it wouldnt. SpooledSRT has a tuned SRT4, he can take EVOs, but cant take Cobras. Feel free to ask him. Either that, or where you live the street lights are very, very close together.

    Maybe the kid in the 1 supposed EVO he beat 1 time did not know how to drive whereas the Cobra driver did.
     
  7. Re: The Nissan Evo ate this thing up!!!!

    EVOs, and Cobras. Plurl. As in more than one. As in, either random chance is pure bullshit, or EVO drivers cant drive.

    Anyone else notice that the 0-60 is done with 2002 cars? Did they use the 03 cobra or the 01? If its the 01 that would explain the 4.82 0-60...

    The thing with magazines is, they get to test cars before they're out. Its about marketing, and hype. Motor Trend did every test with the '03. And im not sure, the '01 ever broke 5 seconds to 60.
     
  10. Nissan EVO??? You should go back to kindergarden... asshole...
