Great Car If You Can Drive It... — The most intence car I have ever driven 0-60 4.5 seconds, 60 foot times of 0.8 seconds, All Wheel drive dounuts, jumping hills at 130 mph with total control , turned and stopped on a dime, and with a top speed of a 155 mph the $25,000 i payed didn't bother me at all.

Pros

Great Perfomance, Affordable, a complete joy to drive and sexy as hell.

Cons

Interior is very basic and not lavish (not that I care!), can be a gas guzzler if you have a lead foot.

The Mitsu Evo 8 Is The Sex! — Love it like a child! Handles great, great acceleration of course... and fun on the open roads! The 4G63 is my favorite powerplant, have owned a 1G Talon TSi as well before I bought the Evo. Just love to keep it in the family! Normal wear and tear parts can tend to be a bit spendy, but all in all I never want to get rid of it! Hoping to get an Evo X to finish up the collection and maybe someday an Evo 6 or 7.

Mitsubishi Ftw — Hands down the best car I have ever owned. This car literally makes you feel like you are driving on rails; that's how well it handles. There was never a car that I ran into on a daily basis that I felt I couldn't beat.

Alright This Is A Good Car But It's A Lot Of Work — This car was in the shop more than I got to drive it, and I mean that. I would say that most of it was my own falt, not like I crashed the thing but I got the car so I could put some performance parts on it and that was it's down fall. the thing was fast as hell but they tell you to leave it alone and not mod it, who the hell buys a car like an Evo 8 with no intention of moding it?

Wicked White Rocket By bwienk
