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.
