Truck Racing: Watch a Ford F-350 Diesel Beat an Evo!
The Mitsubishi Evo. Known as one of the most capable rally machines in the world, and also as a super-fast drag racer thanks to its high-tech all-wheel drive system. Basically, the complete opposite to a Ford F-350 work horse.
This video courtesy of, ImportRace, features a quarter-mile drag race between a Ford F-350 and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 8. We don’t have details on either of these vehicles, but when you see how they launch and the numbers they run, it doesn’t take much knowledge to understand that both vehicles are far from stock.
The video begins with the Evo sitting at the line as the Ford F-350 creeps into view. After a few seconds of staging, the lights come down and the PowerStroke-powered pickup hops out to a big lead thanks to a far better reaction time. As the two move down track, we can see that the F-350 pulled a 0.098 reaction time (0.000 is perfect), while the Evo pulled a 0.486 reaction time, which is pretty bad.
In the end, the powerful Ford runs at 11.66 seconds at 109 mph, while the Evo runs at 11.48 seconds at 120 mph. Needless to say, it’s awesome to see these two wildly-different vehicles deliver such similar performance.
