Evo IX Haters?

What are your experiences with passing by or driving behind/in front of an Evo IX? So far, every time I see an X, I'll wave or flash my headlights and they'll do the same back if not before me. Every time I've seen a IX, there is no response. They'll either just ignore me completely or try to show that theirs is better. Such a shame. I get better responses out of STI's. Half the time they're friendly...

That's because the X looks like a regular lancer

That's true but the same is also kinda true about the IX (altho I'll agree the X looks more like the regular lancer). Either way, another Evo owner should be able to distinguish an X from a regular lancer based on the hood vents and my big spoiler

They seem neutral here. I know a couple of IX owners who are OK, and I know a few more who are dicks. They usually hang out at JMS tuning (the dicks).

That sucks BigMike, but at least it wasn't an embarrassing situation like I had once. I was behind a IX (not tailing or anything), he was driving average speed and then came to a traffic light to take a right....he sped up and took the turn real quick and then let it rip. Unfortunately when I also accelerated and tried to take the turn at the same speed, I skidded a bit and tires screeched. To make things worse, the dude was in his 50's and had his wife next to him! Not sure if he had mods or not. I've always wondered if the IX has better handling/cornering or if I just suck. He didn't drift or anything, it was a clean turn...

most of the IX owners locally act like their shit dont stink cause they have an Evo that wasnt sold in Canada which makes them so exclusive

i personally think the 8's and 9's look more like lancers than the x's do. id really like to have an 8 though.

I was driving from Peoria to Chicago and met a 9 on the way. I was in no mood to race since my gf sitting beside me yells when I drive fast. So the 9 guy came along side honked and took off, lol I wasn't gonna fall for that so I kept going. A mile later I find him driving slow waiting for me to catch up, then he repeated the same thing. As soon as he accelerated this time there was a trooper parked at the shoulder. I saw him getting pulled over in my rear view. I couldn't resist grinning.
