    Rally inspired is a perfect term because weren't they made just so they could enter it in the WRC since they can only put a production model in the WRC? So the designers made the car cause they were inspired by WRC!...wait what?

    Does it have a roll cage, $100k transmission, 10 inch rims with off road tires, stiff yet soft suspension, a navigator that speaks british, fog lights that shoot lasers, 3 hot half naked chicks leaning on it when it clearly needs 5 car washes, and only 2 seats?

    Clearly you need some upgrades before it can be called a real rally car.

    Well, I consider myself a designated evo hunter, my license plate is "H8 EVOS"

    I am currently stage 1, with an acess port map from perrin at 17lbs in an 08.

    I have been regularly dominated by evos that seem to be modded, not really dominated by they pull a solid 3 4 lengths by 100.

    Stock evos, I have suprisingly been beating, not by much, but victory none the less. I am most proud of myself and desire for speeding tickets, of which I amazingly still have none *Knocks on wood*
    Evos make eight pound six ounce baby jesus cry...

    EVO vs. 5 Speed Build/6 Speed STi

    Up here in Boone (The Appalachian Mountains) cars contribute to a big chunk of our time, and seeing that we live in a heaven of windy roads there are your fair share of WRX, STi's, and yes Evo's.. Therefore there is quite a bit of tension between those performance seekers. I drive a 5-Speed Sti Build from an 02' WRX, and suprisingly a good friend of mine drives an Evo8.. so I'm working on it pretty frequently with him. I will start by stating the obvious, that if you don't know anything about our biggest competitor in this class of racing then you are sorely mistaking on what your up against. Amongst all we should all be weary of whats under the hood of an Evo.. especially a modern-build Evo8, no matter what stage you are driving. STi's in my opinion have always had a slight edge from the flat4 to the boxer in 2000-01' in the 4 cylinder world, but now everything is down to precision and $$$. What an Evo8 can do with today's modern parts, makes little what STi's are left to do for now.. Evo engines are getting to wear they can squeeze out hp by just talking sweet to them, where my passion rests in the performance of STi's/builds, I'm afraid its starting to look more grim for that little edge Evolutions will have over what we have to offer. Stay away from Evo's on high-stakes when you know little, I won't even race my friend and neither will he race me, so that much helps keep things calm, but the day will come, SPS Racing (Him) vs. Momentum Racing (Me).

    The difference between an evo and sti stock is more of the STI being a better DD while the evo tends to be more raw feeling. Or at least this is what I could gather from what others have said about each.

    Also this is the difference stock...almost anything can be changed about a car for a price.
