    Yo

    I wouldn't pay $34K for an STI walk out ... but I do like the 6sp tranny. I think max at $30K walk out would be reasonable for the STI, anything less would be great. I really want a STI but I also like the look of the EVO. I'm personally in no hurry to buy a new car as mine it only 2.5yrs old. I'm just sitting back and seeing what the manufacturers bring out to compete aganist each other.

    I just picked up a magazine that tested the new mr, and it ran the quarter in 12.9 at 108. That is moving. I hope they bring it over.

    Evo = Evo RS = Evo MR =

    Well, Mitsubishi is really putting out some stiff competition. Looks like subaru had better have something waiting in the wings. Maybe even the Legacy STI?

    The "Spec C" is a stripped down track version of the JDM STi. I'm not sure if it could make it to the US. Adding in the safety and emissions controls to make it US legal would probably add 100 lbs, maybe more! And really, would americans want a car thats stripped of anything that makes it slower? I guess thats really what the MR is.

    It would be cool if subaru too a comprehensive look at the STI- the WHOLE CAR and figured out a few things here and there to shave off weight. Then throw on a front mount, add a little boost, and tweak the suspension.... and you've got yourself a winner. Or would a front mount be sacraligious?

    Another interesting note, due to Subaru's WRC victory in 2003, they have or are releasing a special edition WRX. I guess its pretty much a JDM spec C with a 2L engine making 325 HP. It has been tested to do 0-6 in 4.4 seconds with a hard launch. I don't know much about this though...
