    Are you joking?

    Lancer Evolution's have 276HP and are in the same class as a Subaru WRX STi.


    They're fast.....

    Search for the Fifth (or is it Top...? I'm drawing a blank here) Gear episode where they run an Evo against a Lambo. Very interesting to say the least lol

    just because you want to be "different". Why not just take that mentality a couple steps forward and get yourself a Pontiac Aztek?

    I'm with the Brotha. Subaru is better, as I'm not a fan of Mitsubishi reliability.

    You all are Mitsubishes.

    The TrailBlazer SS is just so un-noticed and you could buy a used AWD one for about $25k, not bad for 400hp AWD factory lowered SUV.

    The Alltrac WAS a homologation car, that came with luxury interior. I however wish it did not, to help keep the price closer to the awd eclipse and to keep weight down.

    Part of what keeps the evo down to 30 is the cheap interior. To give a good chasis, advanced awd and a well engineered motor, they got to skimp somewhere.

    No more so than a regular ST/GT Celica is a poser Alltrac, or a Subaru Impreza is a poser STI.....

    It's simply a Lancer.

    They do have cheap interiors though.
    I forget sometimes how much crappierr alot of the competition is than Toyota.....

    Our interiors are actually pretty good grade and future comparable with other cars.

    Toyota has always been ahead in quality though.

    I've test driven an STi and an Evolution IX. They both had they're points, but if given the choice, I'd take the STi every time. It's a better car and carries Subaru quality.

    Again, I'm leary of Mitsubishi.

    Oh and for the Trailblazer SS...

    They run about $27,500 for a used one on Ebay.


    I'd rather have a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8. Faster and not a GM POS.

    $27k still isnt bad, I have my reservations about any Chrysler product. Last one I had the Tranny was total junk and most all my friends complain about the brakes being bare enought to stop the car/truck. Plus the LS2 is an incredible engine

    I guess nobody remembers the Typhoon/Syclone.

    *sigh*


    subaru reliability? Tell that to all the subaru owners that are on their second or fifth transaxle.
    or third engine.
    sti OR evo , stock to stock, will whip an all trac's ass, all day long.
    and fucking ls1 chevy stuff too.
    the typhoon and syclone aren't forgotten. very rare, and it's still GM quality. or lack thereof.
    the lancer is an economy car, and it shows.
    the evo is a car that mitsu had to re-work alot to get into this country.
    but it's still a mitsu.

    If toyota would get off it's lame ass and build SOMETHING to compete with the evo, sti, 350z, etc, you'd robably see something nice.
    But toyota is too busy making a 380 HP goddamned truck to compete with ford and shoveitorleaveit.
    and it still won't compete with the diesels. imagine that.


    ok sorry

    All-Trac yes, ls1, no. LS1s are consistently running low 13s stock which is exactly what the Evo/Sti runs. As for the truck, Toyota is vying for the second biggest segment in the American market...they already dominate the midsize sedan segment. Toyota's whole thing now is grabbing the number 1 spot I think. They could care less about niche markets like AWD turbo vehicles at this point.

    As soon as I posted that I was thinking the same thing haha. I was just too lazy to go back and edit. Toyota's been selling out for years though. Giving the FWD Celicas all shitty engines, doing away with the All-Trac for the 6th gen, pretty much completely wiping away any sporty image the Corolla ever had, etc etc etc.
