    It's a shame that the 996 turbo isn't in it this year. The Autothority one whipped as, but was totalled not long after the event. :(

    Hands down the best speed/$ is the Vishnu Evo. Period.


    I'd kill for the LPE C5 though. :o

    Of all the Evos out there, why the fuck did they pick the Vishnu.


    They are going to make the car look like a laughing stock by putting the Vishnu in there.

    Id like to think that maybe the people at Vishnu learned how to tune an EVO, but i seriously doubt it.

    They picked Vishnu because they did so well in the One Lap Event and Shiv is friends with whats-his-name at C&D.

    Blah, whatever, they still cant tune an EVO for shit.

    I know of shadetree garage tuning shops that produce faster EVO's then Vishnu, for about 1/3 of the cost.
