    Okay. BTW, if you're talking about hte Ferrari that also belongs to an Fchatter. And I've driven that car. It's a total beast. The sound is awesome and the experience is very (in Dave Helms' words) barbaric. It's the only 360 I've driven that I really like. After I drove that, I decided that I could see myself in a 360 like that.

    Don, where do you live in Denver? Congress Park?

    Here we go again with the WRX.
    Please, my M coupe beat the WRX STI coming from FL. last week. My 355 beats the M coupe under any conditions.

    All the Sti or EVO beating F360 and etc, those Sti and EVO are modded if you ask me, it's turbo cars, you raise boost a bit, you get dozens of HP, no biggie. I don't think a stock Sti or EVO can take on F360 in 1/4m, might get a hole shot due to 4WD, but will get pulled.

    Actually, in this article, it's the opposite. The 360 is slightly modded and the Evo is totally stock.

    That's fine, I am sure on a certain day, a certain Sti or EVO with a certain driver might take a certain Modena with another certain driver. I just don't believe it's true in general, for example while drivers being euqal, and run 100 times in 1/4m, you think EVO can win all day along? I have to see it to believe.

    I had my days of modifying cars and drag racing too, I have a decent idea of what fast almost every car is in stock form and how fast it can be made with certain mods. I personally love the Sti and EVO, always wanted those to be brought here in US(actually Skyline is what I wanted most), I would most certainly get either one for daily driver if I was spending $30k on, that being said, in stock form those are low 13's cars in general, with the right driver and the right abuse, you might see 12's, but you aren't gonna do that day in and day out on the street. So, in general I just think Modena is a faster car.
    Btw, I ran few of those in my E46 M3, pretty much equal upto middle of 3rd, then I will pull, especially when I go in 4th, I pull with authority, they are a bit weak at 100+.

    The 360 driver didn't get on the throttle until he heard the EVO on full boost, with reactions times of what they are and time to full boost this essentially gave the EVO a 1/2 - 1 second lead. The BIGGEST problem with this comparison is the 5000 ft elevation of the test. You can't test a NA car against a Turbo'ed car at these elevations, you just took 100hp out of the Ferrari engine!! This is like doing a test at sea level and pulling the spark plugs out of 2 cyclinders of the Ferrari engine and saying its a fair comparison.

    Yes, I agree the Evo is weak 100+. Any good european car(porsche, m3, modena) will pull 100+ on the Evo stock. I tried it on a freeway against a m3 and the m3 pulled away top end.

    Hi everyone, this is my first post.

    I now have a 360F1. I've owned an Evo 6 in the past. I'd like to say that a standard Evo would have NO CHANCE in a straight line, especially a rolling start. For example, the EVO does 30-100mph in around 11 -11.5 secs, the 360 does it in around 7 secs, leaving the EVO a good 25m behind!

    Where the EVO is "better" is that the average driver (read me) can drive the EVO pretty hard in all weathers and most roads, whereas the same cannot be said of a 360 - much more skill and confidence required. Also my natural reaction would be to take less risks in the 360 than in an EVO. These are the reasons why some drivers in an EVO can and would be quicker than a 360 driver.

    By way of comparison, I also have a 550bhp Skyline and there is very little difference between this and the 360 once on the move (the Skyline does 0-100 in around 8 secs versus the Evo's time of around 12.5 to 13 secs).

    I am just waiting for a ricer STI or EVO to get next to my 996 twin turbo, but I don't think I will race against them, because I can care less.

    sherpa23,

    I didn't post on the Evo board. And I can't confirm that the alleged incident didn't actually take place on a closed test track. But I can confirm that I sold you my Ferrari - I hope it's treating you well!


    There's no real controversy here. The 360 clearly has the edge even at the high altitude we live at. It was just interesting to note that the cars were fairly close. The Evo is a lot of car for the money.

    Interesting to note also that the Caterham has the edge on both cars...

    Tim, you are the man. We need to go for a drive in Caterham sometime. BTW, the dealership has picked up TonyKart so whenever you would like to take a spin in my 125cc shifter kart, let me know. It's kind of half motorcycle, half car and it's awesome on some of the little tracks that we have around here. Take care

    BTW, the car is awesome. Absolutely awesome.
