Theoretically, the Evo should have been able to keep up... too much of a pull from an M3. The all-wheel drive gives the car an unfair advantage. Take a car up to 5500rpm and just do a clutch dump, and it should be able to leap frog infront of the M. But ultimately the M3 would probably still win.
As for comparing apples and oranges, the person in the Evo was instigating the stop-light confrontation. I'm sure that both were curious on how there car faired against each other.
Yeah, m3 could be a $60k car, but not all of that is for the performance aspect. For instance, you could pick up a stripped-down M3 for $46k. Yeah, it still cost more than the Evo, but even a stripped down M3 would feel much more solid than an Evo.
On the other hand, put $10k into a Evo, the m3 is toast. And then his pen1s will be bigger than the person's in the M. Right? lol :lmao:
At the end of the day, it's still an Evo.... Still a great car...
