    id personally have to think that in a straight line you might keep up for a while. the X is supposed to have been produced to be the sti competitor. and the RA was the WRX competition. The X is also heavier, so yes straight line who knows.....turns...you're done without suspension mods.
    take one on the track and find out

    That's why I said depends.

    All we are doing is paper racing and speculating based on numbers. The only way we'd know is if we took equal drivers in same conditions, with the parameters specified...and raced (on a track/closed safe setting).

    My definition of one car "beating" another is if it's more fun to drive. I've never driven an Evo, but I've always heard that the steering box is quicker, cornering is sharper, chassis is excellent, with throttle response and stock power that's comparable to an STI, if not better. (generalizing, since Evo's have gone through several generations since I started paying attention)

    For me then, it sounds like an Evo 10 would beat my WRX. I could be wrong.

    With your definition you are probably right.

    My definition differs. I'd love to borrow a Lancer but I don't want to own one. I've no doubt it's the quicker car though.

    Stage 2 2009+ WRX with equal drivers no turns and the set distance being 1/4. The WRX is quicker... Once that EVO 10 goes stage 2 (if thats what they call it) you are done they respond to modifications much better that the WRX.

    I've known for a while that we see things like this differently, but given that you're an international assassin, I choose not to openly contradict you.

    One of the phrases describing the World's Most Interesting Man: He's a lover, not a fighter... but he's a fighter too, so don't get any ideas... Heh.

    Truth be told I like the looks of the older Lancers and like the tech of the newer Lancers but Mitsubishi are in my view much better at building ultra-reliable ancillaries and components than they are at assembling their own stuff into a reliable car. Their turbos are very reliable, their other parts are very reliable, but when they themselves put everything together I worry enough to keep me from signing on the dotted line.

    I loved my Lancer while I had it. pretty dam reliable and i beat it pretty hard too. I like how the X looks much more then older generations of the EVO...digital fuel gauge was hard to get used to but looked nice... but I never liked how expensive they still are. They hold their resell pretty well.

    ^Exactly.

    I will say this though, I do believe that most enthusiasts hold the Evo on a very high pedestal. It's an impressive car no doubt, but it's not like comparing it to a 09+ WRX is apples to oranges. Hell i almost bought an Evo X instead of the scooby! Very cool cars, I'm just too giant for their recaro seats lol.

    This resumes what I've seen since I got my WRX. People that have driven or owned both say their EVOs are better racers but lousier daily drivers. I am at stage 2.52 and still avoid racing EVOs. But while I enjoy driving my WRX every day, most EVOs in my area are garage queens (too heavily modified to be practical daily drivers) and even stock they cannot match my WRX miles X gallon X fun factor.

    2013 WRX sedan - MODS = pretty much every bolt on besides a bigger turbo.

    The term was “invented” by Eric from Torqued Performance. It is a stage 2 WRX with a VF-52 turbo (not the stock TD04 that came with 2008 WRX) Torqued Performance sell maps for this combination.
