    WRX STi vs EVO-Official results from R&T mag

    Here is a 6 page article from last summer from Road and Track magazine which is one of the best. They put the two head to head so this should end the banter on which is faster as the professionals, not just street kids racing. Hopefully we can now put to rest which car is the overall best.

    i dont understand how these "professional drivers" suck so bad...there are kids on this board (whom i believe) with sti's that hhave clocked as low as 12.89 bone stock...i can see 12.8 to 13.0 difference...but 13.3 seems a little far ...13.4 for the evo as well..i have no idea here but arent the 0-60 times from car and driver better (or have car and driver yet to test the 2004 US versions of these cars).

    Wow those cars are fast. For the money, you can't beat either one of them. They are such good track performers that any V8 that beats them at the drag strip will lose on a road course (Z06 as an exeption of course).
    I guess I should say V8 of equivalent dollar value.

    Their 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are incredible for stock cars around $30k.

    Nice... just nice.

    Personally, I'm not sure which one I'd want. I've had bad experiences with Mitsu in the past, so I have to give the edge to the Subby, but I've seen both run at the track, and they are both awesome. (track = road course... not drag strip)

    What a great world it is to buy cars these days. 10 years ago for 30k in 1994 dollars so more like 35k today, you bought cars that were sweet, but that would lose to both of these stock. (300zx, RX7, etc.)

    WOW

    How odd that the STi won the Road and Track car of the year.

    Yep but don't forget the Evo wasn't allowed to enter the shootout because it wasn't a new model or something. Still, the STi beating out the Porsche GT3 in votes and braking was cool.

    Yeah know that, but I agree with you the STi beat what I thought was MUCH stiffer competetion then the Evo could ever be.

    mball, whats with all your posts comparing cars that everyone has been comparing for the past year. Everyone has been over this. Not trying to be rude, but what exactly is your motive for these posts?

    Well there was arguing going on in other topics about which of these 2 is the better car with people quoting supposed times from their "buddies" which make me want to raise the BS flag. So I thought I would just post some official numbers from when professionals raced the 2 cars head to head rather then ridiculous claims from some mythical street race friends of friends of friends happened to see.
