That's a little misleading to just say that because in the article the Evo wins almost every performance category, and the the STi gains points in subjective categories - and if you even remove the points the STi gets for 'Off-road performance' which most of us will never do, the Evo wins regardless of the price points. Then the price puts the Evo back on top. So if you eliminate subjective areas since they really are just subjective and different for everyone, the Evo wins when looking at just measurable categories.cligedy said:The sti wins price independent, loses when cost is figured.
Where are people saying that? I mean there are a few Mitsu fanboys here and there, but I don't get the feeling that it is a ton of people. I keep reading postings that pretty much say that the Evo is winning the comparos, but it is so close that it comes basically to personal preference. I only originally responded in this thread because I thought that one post was misleading in saying that the STi was better throughout, except that the Evo won solely on price. After seeing his post, I picked up a copy R&T for the article because I thought this article would be showing that the STi won every category. That isn't really a true representation of the article. I would have pointed it out if it went the other way too.silent B0b said:What bothers me is that because the EVO scores 2 points higher than the STi you have all these people saying "Dear Lord I guess the STi IS crap!
Preach it brother!!!! I have to admit that i thought the STI would win all the comparos. I am quite surprised it didn't actually. Does it bother me? A teeny weeny bit but not really. I like evo....i think i've made this known in other posts but i am a big evo fan. I would take a blue TM edition evo 6.5 over any awd car except a 22b or R34 Skyline, even the USDM STI. Why am i not buying the evo then? Simple....even though it is still a bad ass car it is watered down. I can't stand a car company not having total respect for its customers by not giving them the real deal. Now Subaru on the other hand brought over a version of the STI that is the best in the world(excluding spec c). They stepped to the plate and hit a home run....mitsubishi hit a triple. Thats why an STI will be in one of my garages and not an evo. Whats really scary is the fact that our watered down USDM evo is still the S**T!! If Mitsubishi next year brings us an Evo with the real deal close ratio 6 speed gearbox, ACD, AYC, 30 more horsepower(it is an underated 280hp in japan, but everyone knows its 300+hp in japan), etc for another say 2-2.5k....well then there will be one of those in the garage next to my STI.nykwan said:I think you're kinda pissed because you were dead set on the STi and was so sure that it would be the next god's gift to motoring and it wasn't unanimous winner everywhere. It's a car, get over it. One shouldn't never be so loyal to a company that only needs you in order to sell you stuff anyway. I buy the product, not the brand.
that says it all for me. This will be my primary form of transportation. I find that I almost never have problems with understeer when driving my girlfriend's Civic to the grocery store. At the same time, when I go to deals gap for a sunday drive (300+ turns in 11 miles) I like my balls-out-effort to be rewarded with responsive handling and power to get me up the mountain. I look forward to the STi being as much fun as my MR-2, but with the capability to bring friends or luggage along. As it stands, no car comes close for this price to being both livable and exciting.DVTURK said:Most of us will drive our EVO or STi the majority of the time on public streets and not the track.

right, the only way the mags would sway my decision in buying would be if they made comments like , what a dissapointment ,no throttle response ,poor brakes, ill fitting body parts ,and uncomfortable as hell, lets face it both manufactures did what they could to stay in sight of the other ,thats a plus for us all ,my pick is the sti, only because it does it all very well and has room for improvement if i choose, the Evo is alittle on the touchy side at 19 lbs boost on 91 fuel, remember it better be fresh fuel, the longer it sits in the tanks at your exxon station and vents into the air the weaker it gets, like the fuel in your lawn mower over winter, in my opinion anyway :wink: :wink:DVTURK said:Most of us will drive our EVO or STi the majority of the time on public streets and not the track.

It's power, extra displacment, breaking, and handling prowess (although not on par w/EVO...but what other car really is) makes it a sweet package...and oh yea..it is a Subaru :lol:
Both cars rock. Hopefully this mag racing :roll: will stop once the STi is here. Two weeks and counting for me 8)
