    Look its just the way it is, there will always be something better coming out and its regardless if you have the timeslip or not, thats what i meant by stop hating. Dont get me wrong an Evo 8 is a great car but the STi is a way much better performance car than the Evo 8

    Its unknown at this time, if you can you will need 18inch wheels. No one is sure yet if the mounting points are the same, wait 2 weeks and we will know.

    And you base that on what factual numbers? In which way is the STI better a performance car? Please show us proof. ahh you can't because there are no real world actual numbers yet.

    no im not taking anything away from the STI, it's a beast. but we do not have any real world factual numbers to compare to the evo so far. blatant comments like that without numbers to back it up isn't prudent. When the STI comes out and we get some numbers on it then we'll make that judgement.

    Look it doesn't matter what numbers or " Actual Numbers " that both cars would put up in a 1/4 mile race because it will always go down to the drivers skill who's handling the veichle anyway. So why even bother to try to find factual proof of what the car is capable of doing based on times that would vary depending on the drivers skill. If you want to base it on fact then you might as well consider on the other factors as well i.e. drivers reaction time, shifting techniques, etc. because all of these other factors will also affect your time results. Also if you compare the specs of both cars isnt it this enough proof on which one is better?

    the specs we have only says which is faster in a straight line, we have nothing to compare handling to yet though.

    Ohhhh okay I get it...

    260HP Mustang GT vs 255HP Mazda RX-7...
    3300 lbs. vs 2800 lbs.

    I get it, more horse = BETTER!

    Lets not pay attention to...

    GEARING
    AERODYNAMICS
    RELIABILITY
    PROVEN MOTORS
    BUILD QUALITY

    Granted all those things are not exactly true on these cars but you get the point. yourself.
