Either one of the cars are NOT drag cars, they are rally cars.Originally Posted by YBNormal07Rebuttal: If it's pushing, you aren't driving it right, IMHO. The front diff takes a different approach than normal, and needs to be used properly to make the car rotate. I've driven both, and yes, the Evo definitely fells smoother, apexing very nicely. However, exiting a corner is much different in both cars, and IMO, it is easier to accomplish a much higher speed in the STi than the Evo. Since I've yet to be passed or even had an Evo hang with me at a track, my only conclusion to date is the Evo is not as track worthy as the STi, or the Evo drivers need more seat time.
Rebuttal: None. See my statement above only reverse it. The STi drivers did not represent us well at that event. I didn't drive that day, so I really can't complain (eg..put up or shut up). However, if we compare 1/4 mile experiences, again, the STi comes out on top in my experience. Have yet to have a stock Evo come anywhere near me in a race. But again, is that the car or the driver...the never ending story.
For my own 2 cents worth, here is my recommendation on your choice or purchase. Go visit both dealers and ask question about the vehicels, ask for a test drive, and ask about price. Use that impression to make your choice. I can almost guarantee the difference in knowledge and professionalism will make you see the light. Not to mention something I haven't seen yet in this thread....turbo lag. One has it, and one doesn't. Can you guess which one?
