2K3 ZX3 vs. Lancer OZ
 
Hey guys,
My first race against a car with my focus was tonight, I raced a 2001+ Mitsubishi Lancer OZ "Rally Edition". He had a good launch, but I was a little behind since I was just putting my phone down, anyway, I catch up to him, and end up beating him up to 70 (approx.). I know that car has the same engine as the base (SOHC -> 1.6L) He was stock, and so am I. What do you guys think about this car?

Cliff Notes: Raced a Lancer OZ 'Rally Edition' and beat it. The car DEFINETELY kept up with me. What do you think about that car?[???:)]

The OZ is similar to the Protege MP3. They're not much better than the base models but have special names. They're both a mistake imo. The Ralliart is what the OZ should've been & the Mazdaspeed is what the MP3 should've been.

Speaking of Ralliart, that thing is suppose to be quick. A magazine that reviewed it showed it doing 14.9 stock. I dont believe that S. 160hp, plus 2800+lbs sounds bogus to me. A civic has 160hp does 15.9 or so. Focus SVT has 170hp and does 15.7around... I know its a 2.4 with some decent torque, but not even the 2.5l se-r does 14's while weighing 100lbs less having 15 more hp and 20ftlbs more torque.

The same mag says the SVTF does 15.39. It was an econosports comparison test. I think it was scc. All of the cars had really fast times in the comparison. Do the math. It will be right there with the Spec, Mazda, & SVT.

My buddy has one, we have yet to race though. I'm pretty sure I'll beat him. He let me drive it, and it didnt feel too quick.

Agreed. I was under the impressiong the Rally Edition [barf] was only appearance upgrades. If this is the case, that should NOT have been a close race.

It is, the Lancer OZ edition has the same base engine as the regular Lancer.

The OZ package is APPEARANCE ONLY.

The car runs a 9 second 0-60 and about a 17 second 1/4.
