Damn all this talk is making me miss my IX .. mine was stock turbo and I was putting almost 400whp on a dynojet ... shit was a monster at the track (road course) ... I never had a clutch in it so I never got a chance to really use the 2 step.

The thread's title is misleading. It should read: 335 vs. bolt-on Evo. Bolt-on Evos are 11-sec cars. (VIII Stage 1+cams or IX Stage 1 w/o cams)

If you started for like 5mph in first I could see you jumping ahead initially on the run because there is more lag on the Evo so, at speeds like that it takes a second or two to get going.

However, if he is pulling you from a roll he should definitely rip your A-hole out on a run starting with a launch. Unless he was the one getting crappy launches. The other thing to consider is you've got the Steptronic which helps consistency a lot. If you don't get the launch right with the Evo and bog it you're screwed.

WTF!?
LOL So much confusion in this single post. HaHa. Anyway, I also like how someone here mentioned how the race would have probably been different at a higher topend speed. I guess the whole "AWD sucks on topend" myth is still in people's minds. Yeah ok, try a modded Evo on topend and see how slow they are. Haha. 911 Turbos & Murcielagos must be slow also since they're AWD too. LoL
Sorry, not trying to start a war here, but some of the information(or lack of) im reading here is amusing.

I like how you can interpret "might be" as "would have probably been". I also like how you assume that I meant it had to with AWD. What's also funny to me, is that I've owned 3 modified AWD turbo cars in the past and you're assuming that I think AWD cars "suck on topend" based on my post that doesn't even mention AWD. talk about LoL

The 335i performs better at higher, top-end speeds than it does down low...therefore, it might have more of a chance with a lightly modded EVO or STi or other 300+hp AWD vehicle. That was my only point. Here's the post I believe you're referring to:

Quote:
My friend's EVO IX GSR with just TBE & EBC @ 19lbs will beat my 335 from dig, roll, w/e. There's no match. 100mph+ there might be more of a race, but not down low. Stock EVOs are definitely slower than stock 335s though.
