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?
    Either one of the cars are NOT drag cars, they are rally cars.

    And your point is? Please note I also discussed both cars on a road course. Also note that NO production car is a "drag" car. It just so happens that some people enjoy dragging their production vehicle. It's not my fault the Evo can't compete with STi on the dragstrip in stock form This is fact, not opinion. It is my opinion that the STi can compete and beat an Evo on the twisties, given equal knowledable drivers, same day, same track. But that is just an opinion. See you in my rear view on the twisties!!!

    Now...back on subject. See the threads above, visit the dealerships, get your test drive (good luck on the Evo MR), and make your choice.
