Hey guys, I know the topic of STi vs Evo has been covered quite a lot of times, but seriously most of them only compare HP, drag, 1/4, etc...
I would like to hear some comparison talk on handling wise.
Yes, the stock Evo will out perform stock STi (Talking about ver9 vs evo9, usdm) on track and STi will have a upper hand on rally. And I've been reading lots of argument about one is better than the other, no matter stock vs stock or modded vs modded.
So my question is, what makes Evo handling better than STi? or not?...
Does Evo actually handling better at the limit over the STi? Or just Evo owners said that?
Did anyone actually owned both of the car and did some test on it?
I mean, even if we know Evo handles better, but I would still like to know how? and why? which part of our car design get the downside? When compare modded evo vs modded sti with some fair suspension setup, same size swaybars, same size tires, same coilover setup, which one will perform better and why?
If any of you have had ever compare them or have heard about them, I hope you can share with us I've heard too much STi owners said Evo is not that good while they never driven an Evo or Evo owners said their car handles better but they never driven a STi.
What both car will act like when car the is pushing over the grip limit?
(I mean a modded STi will still more likely to understeer at the limit, how about Evo?)
And I know one will perform better on different road course, let's compare them too. Which one will get a upperhand on these different place? (consider their strength and weakness)
Track (not drag racing)
Canyon (not to suggest street racing here, just an idea of those small and tight corner road)
Dirt (my guess is STi win here)
Wet (Just wet, not raining)
Snow (never actually seen this comparison before)
I am not comparing the driving skills here, I assume they are both driven by Stig
And sorry for the stupid question If you think this kind of compare is pointless, please don't flame and just let me know. Thanks!
