    OOps, I missed this thread...

    STi. Why?

    EVO Boost at 20PSI = Ticking time bomb.

    STi has DCCD, much more fun to dial the differentials in.

    300Hp/Torque is just fun.

    Please dont say that man, Im sure alot of poeple here know what is a fast car. We know its a fast car as well as a good car. I seen lotus 7 replicas many many times trash scoobs and evos in no time, and most poeple dont even see lotus 7 as a fast car.

    A very very fast car is sub 3secs on 0-60 and 200+MPH.

    I agree scoob are cheaper than evos, thats probably why theres more of them on the road, in UK that is.

    Peace poeple
    Before getting married I had a WRX and a Caterham 7, I really couldn't ask for more motoring fun. Both were pure excitement but each had its place. The WRX was definatley faster in raw terms but in a race I'd take the 7 every time. On 7 owners trips to Le Mans I've seen 7's race big bikes and win, I wouldn't want to drive it to work in the winter though.

    The WRX however was incredibly fast but also very forgiving. Too much power in untrained hands is a recipe for disaster, the AWD makes the car much easier to drive and makes it much less likely to see one in a ditch at the side of the road.

    I unedrstood a ricer was a car made to look fast but without the performance to match - there is no way you can say that about a WRX. If anything it's the complete opposite - understated looks and a blast to drive. The STi looks a little more angry, but it can justify it too..!

    Just a little ramble, sorry.

    Chris.

    Probably not

    The only Japanesse cars I know that lasts that long:
    Honda, Toyota, Subaru
    My '94 Eclipse had 211,651 miles on it when I sold it roughly two years ago. Sold it for $800 though. Ran great, even with a worn clutch (still had the original factory clutch in it ). It only had minor rust spots under the hood too. Heck, until some bastard keyed it, the paint job was immaculate on it.

    I still see the kid who I sold it to drive it around every now and then.

    .. of course, it was a 1G DSM with a 4G37 motor.

    (for you non DSM'ers, that's the 1.8L econo-engine, with a whole whopping 97hp ).

    Wow i totally missed this one too.

    Before i bought my Evo it was a hard decision between the sti and evolution. I can't really say what tipped me. I do love my baby though, as i would likewise if i had gotten the sti. Like many have said personal prefs.

    The EVO was on my list, but I sat in it and still waited for the STi.
    Ordered in March 2003 and picked it up in July.

    Straight line the STi is faster than the EVO hands down.

    But stock vs stock handling, the EVO is supposidly easier to learn how to drive. The US EVo lacks YAW control like my STI has.

    I have a sensor that can tell which way the car is drifting during a 100mph drift.

    See, sitting in it would have made me go the other way i think. I drove to new mexico to get my evo since arizona didn't have a blue one WTF! LOL

    And it's not necesarrily easier to learn, its just that the evo wins with handling. The big conclusion seemed to be you want a drag straight line car/speed go Sti, you want a good all around car ok speeda and handling get evo.

    I would think the AWD of the WRX would make it a better choice in northern states. While if you live in FL or CA AWD would be less of an issue.

    More than flat out speed I enjoy driving with AWD in the snow. I own a V6 4motion Passat..

    Cheers,

    I was also worried about the EVO's engine though mainly.

    Turbo GSX's are rare now cause everyone blew the motors turboing them and overboosting them. I know EVO is made in Japan like my STi and quality control is better, but I always seems to see old mitsu's spitting out smoke, more than any old subarus.

    Also, I SCAA autocross. No I don;t like to run my car in a straightline. It's all about the truns.

    You should tell the STi drivers that there car is no good at the track and they will lol at y9ou.

    Besides, some STi's were pulling better times than the EVo's. And again, its all about the driver also.

    Yes EVO is AWD also, but it can't lock it's Diffs and unlock them. I can mkae my STi like a true 4WD vehicle. Like locking 4WD, for mud and snow. (Dont turn the wheel though)
