Thanks JJ Some interesting things that parrallel the stuff in the car and driver article comparisons. But the car they drove had the prodrive package in it, where we already have the power levels in the car.In both places at the higher speeds the STI they didn"t feel measured up to the EVO, still going to get it though.SFRinNJ

Also, the Euro STI still has "modest" understeer where the US spec STI has the JDM spec c geometry which *should* eliminate much of the understeer during accelerated cornering.

Got to go back and really read the c&d article, the edmonds review, and a couple of the others. Bottom line is I'm getting the car. Most of the time I am going to be driving the car. Alot of the time I want to take the car and do some "cool" things with the car. I guess it is going to have some limitations that I had better learn to overcome, live with, and compensate for, or we will both be in a ditch someplace.SFRinNJ

I just meant that the US version apparently hasn't tuned out the understeer even with the supposed "Spec C" geometry, according to the reviews so far.

And the fact is, other than the wheelbase, we don't really know the differences in suspension setup between the US, Euro, and JDM cars.

Ive got slight understeer in mine too so ill assume its big setup difference in uk/eu vs us models if there aint understeer in us models.Ill try to get the data on mine so you can compare it.
From "You&your Subaru Impreza Turbo" by Chris Rees (ISBN 1859608256):
>zero toe-in on the front with 0.5-1.2 of negative chamber.At the rear its 1.0-1.5mm of toe-out on each side.<

Both the EVO8 and Sti was special models, the evo was a FQ300 and the Sti was PPP
The Evo got YAW control so it doesnt understeer.
