    If memory serves shep ran 7s on QTP's which are street legal. All gas no nitrous. The RWD DSM that you speak of is probably Brent Rau. I think he's going 6.90s now. Pretty decent for a 4 banger.


    Shepherd is a beast, I spoke with him on the phone. Probably the most down to earth quasi-celebrity I've ever talked to.

    I love it when people say that. If only our V8-platformed cars could weigh that little.

    Yeah I figured the boost would have to be bumped to drop a second in e.t.

    Ageed. The fastest cars in the world are RWD, not AWD. Its just not necessary with a properly set up car.

    Must be a hell of an intake and exhaust system to cut a second and a half off of the stock Evo X 1/4 mile time

    can only assume it had a lot to do with the tune.........very often turbo cars can have HUGE gains from JUST a tune......audi s4 is a perfect example...stock 250 horse.......tune just over 300

    Tune makes all the difference, but I didn't see him mention that, just intake and exhaust when referring to the "08 evo x gsr".

    yes but on a good road with good street tires, a stalled car with the proper setup will still out launch an awd car.

    i HIGHLY doubt it.......check out 0-60 times of very fast production cars.....awd cars run faster.....and sti or evo both run under 5 sec to 60 with only 230 wheel hp......fastest ive seen them test an ls1 z run is 5.1 with 300 rwhp .....sry man....im doubtful ....have to beat on an awd car to launch the piss out of it though.....not my cup of tea

    Well IMO, I wouldn't take a Evo or STi over a r33 gtr Skyline, The Rb26 engine is Well built and can handle High Revs forever, Plus on Factory Stock internals guys have went well over 600 Ponies with no problems, Plus the Drivetran is Extremely built compared to an EVO or STI.


    This is one built pretty heavy, But shows a little of what they can do.
