One thing I would like to point out is that people say thay are made for two diffrent reasons, Drag and Rally/AutoX. That may be a good point but the EVO, especially the new model coming out this year will beat any stock stang (maybe even a Cobra) in a drag any day of the week including rain or snow.

J/K about the rain or snow part but it is true.

Also there is no way that a completely stock EVO put down 270+ even to the front wheels bone stock so it wont with AWD. The mustang GT is going to be faster in a striaght line stock vs stock and the EVO is going to outhandle. Now if its the EVO MR then I would pick that all the way but you should also take into consideration that the new platform for the mustang has limitless handling capabilities.
I agree there. Actually the newer body lancers (the ones that look similar to the evos) were modeled after the evos. B/C the evo is such a freackin bad @$$ car.

evo's are kewl till a point but then its like no matter how fast it goes your still in a boy racer car. a mustang V8 only no matter how young or old you are your in a true muscle car.

last week i was cruising in my focus i had to get food for some drunk people that needed food to absorb the alcohol. anyways 3 guys in an sti are looking at me and im like what do you want [:)][:)][:)]? he gave me a puzzled look im like "do you have a Fking staring problem?!" i started getting mad and they peeled off real fast. it was neat tho his muffler made a fire ball. maybe cause i was rolling 4 deep in my car the power of people its a wonderful thing! [:P]

In response to your first paragraph, you can call an EVO what you like "boy racer car", Jap crap, Rice, etc.. it will smoke any stock mustang gt on the road and maybe come close to smoking a cobra (not sure, will have to check the numbers). Don't get me wrong, I am a Ford fan but the EVO is one hell of a car.

In response to your second paragraph, never mind it doesn't deserve a response.

The only problem I have with the EVO is that around here most if not all of them are owned and driven by poseurs who don't care much about the car's awesome abilities but are more interested in being seen in it and being the only kid in school or the only guy at work to have one. But I guess the same holds true for the Mustang, let's face it, the vast majority of people who have a Mustang aren't really using or appreciating it's full performance potential.

I agree with the EVO comment about the poseurs, alot of kids with civic's and integra's are posers too but our SVT's can usually beat them. The EVO poseurs are a real pain cause they have money (I'm sorry, I mean there parents do) and a fast as hell car.

I do have to say that only my mom cannot tell the difference between a lancer and an evo. That is because she can't decide what she wants...a car or an SUV. I have only seen a couple of evos around and have never seen one actually being driven, but I do know that is one hell of a car and I would drive it. I do like the new mustang though, don't get me wrong. I don't like the fact that everybody and their grandma has one though (even if it is v-6).
