another intelligent non-helpful comment by the great Adaptabl......If it is a stock lancer, you will blow his doors off. the ES & O.Z Rally only have a 120 hp 2.0 liter. It's only when it's a Ralliart (160+ hp) or above that the Lancer gets some power.
you'll definitely beat him.
my 3.3 beat a new rally art wagon looking thing about a month ago. They can keep up pretty damn good though. he got a jump for about 5 or 6 seconds and I started very slowly passing him, at about 80 something mph there were a couple car lengths so i lifted and turned to go home
