      Guys i think you need to check this out evo!!
      It just broke the dragster world record. The team is now going to try and get into the 6 second range!!! It’s insane. You got to arrange a meeting with them, and have them beef up your evo!

      @Jacob Beard hahahaha. Nope. The evo is a sexier car as well. Dude, no matter how hard you try to talk up the golf (much like these guys did), the evo will still top any golf. Daym i am so irritated by how that bearded guy try to imply that the golf is even in the league of the evo. Face it dude, its not!!!! I hv driven both. Damn!!!

    And the evo won period
    Try them both off road where the evo will shine though with its Rally Heritage 😉
    Also evo 8-9s are around 15k-25k

    l'Evo ? La meilleure voiture de tous les temps pour rouler sur des routes de montagnes quelques soient les conditions ! Seuls ceux/celles qui ne l'ont pas assez conduite peuvent prétendre le contraire... Facile, permissive, efficace, bref aucune auto, même plus moderne ne peut donner autant de plaisir sur petite route ! La Golf c'est une auto rigoureuse, efficace même, mais nettement moins jouissive à conduire qu'un Evo ! Et on ne parle pas de neige... Car avec 4 clous l'Evo se transforme en caisse de rallye alors que la Golf sera un enfer si vous voulez vous amusez ! Et oui, sur l'Evo on peut encore rouler au pied gauche pour la neige ou même la pluie..... Sur les autres c'est l'électronique qui s'en charge et c'est vachement moins sympa et surtout moins efficace...

      @Amadeus Bellenger to each there own. I really don't know much about the golf series but I'd imagine they don't have cast iron blocks and can't make the power those evos can make. I'd also be asleep driving an automatic sports car myself. I've always enjoyed a more analog car.

    The golf R isn’t a real all wheel drive its a FWD whit the rear to assist when the front losses grip while the EVO got a center transfer case that can send the power to rear or front so it can do power slides while ur golf wil just understeer on the limit

    Should never jumpstart cars by linking jumper cables battery to battery. On the flat vehicle should hook earth to engine lift lug or body earth. When vehicle starts alt starts charging and end up with 2 cars charging one battery. Can explide batteries or fry computers.

      They shift fast for sure, no one can argue that. I'd wager here the big turbo was taking long to spool compared to the NA Golf. Possibly not tuned great too, seemed like it should have been faster on the straight.

    You have manual vs a dual clutch automatic. That’s a biggg advantage. That means constant boost between shifts and extremely fast shift times. On top of that, the 4Gs shine with how much power they can make off of simple bolt ons. FBO for FBO the evo is another monster. Great cars but this ones easily going to the Evo.
