believe it or not a brand new mitsu lancer fell to the stock b13 4 door. i shit you not.

sitting at a light on my home from work i saw a new lancer roll up beside me. i dont start races simply because my car is slow as hell. i have had my ass handed to me on several occasions. but i know the cars that i can run with also and i do so regularly. anyway i had no intentions of getting my feelings hurt tonight especially since my friend was following behind me in his 99 prelude. he loves to pick on the poor little ga. as the light turned green the lancer and i take off about the same time crossing the highway when he floors it, i saw the front end raise up and him looking at my car. so i did what i usually do and dropped the auto down a gear or two and off we go , we stayed side by side which surprised me (and my friend) until he missed a gear and i slid on past him, tach reaching around 5800-6000 rpm. i wound it out in third (i love that damn button on the shifter) and the lancer gave up. i couldn't believe it and i was driving. i honestly dont my car should have stood a snowballs chancee in hell. but it goes to show that you cant win if you cant drive even if you have a faster car.
my poor car needs some serious boost boy attention

The U.S. version of Lancer is extremely weak, even the 'Rally' version (yeah right) is pathetic. However; beware when Mits. brings over the Evolution though. :)
This is why I love my short shifter. I bought it mainly for 75% looks (the stock shift was ugly) and 25% performance. However, this ratio is now completely opposite. I've found when I'm basically evenly matched (or even the underdog), the short shifter makes a HUGE difference. I've kept up w/ or beat cars that are much more powerful simply because I have more of a constant acceleration. Not something I expected to be that huge....:cool:
