I'm a DSMtuners member and I just sold my GSX.
I'm currently looking at a few luxury and/or performance vehicles. The 06 Evolution ranks right up there at the top so far.
I have a few questions about the EVO though.
I came across an article a few months back that compared the 0-60 times and 1/4 mile times for the 3 models in 06..
I have searched and searched for this magazine article but havent' had any luck. I've also gone through pages of info on this site with no luck.
I understand the differences between the three models(5 spd, 6 spd, suspention, etc) but I would like to know the performance differences and the pros and cons of all.
I'm also looking into the IX with the leather/sunroof/stereo package.
the evo MR has BBS wheels that are about 2.5lbs lighter then the enkeis, so there is less rotational mass. it also has a Vortex generator that creates more downforce on the rear spoiler. i don't have exact numbers between a Evo9 and a evo 9 MR, I would love to see a actual comaparison between models.
i remeber about coming across that article myself actually. i remeber seeing that the base exceeded in 0-60 but the mr took 0-10 or something like that? and didnt the rs win in braking? they all excel in there own fields it seems it depends on the cash you got, and what you wanna do with the car in a whole
As far as performance.
I guess I was really debating because of the possible differences between the 5spd and 6 spd transmissions. Better gearing could definitley affect 0-60, 1/4 mile times, etc.
I was just wondering if it was significant.
Now weight savings is a whole other thing. We all know that weight can affect all aspects of performance(times, braking, handling, etc).
As I mentioned earlier I was looking at some luxury cars and some performance cars.
This is when I came across an 06 IX with the Sun, Sound and Leather Package. I had no clue that package was offered. That gave a performance car a little more luxury. That definitely put the IX up at the top of my list for now.
