(Thread Starter)
I was on my way to the airport and I started to follow this nice looking STI. After a while an EVO 8 came out of nowere and started to follow the STI very closely. The STI gassed it and pulled a crazy move to get through a pack of cars, at the same time the evo is gassing it in the center divider and takes the STI instantly. It was a great experience, the perfect showdown!!!! I felt bad for the STI because I like them better than the evo 8 even though it is faster. This was a great looking evo, had a exhaust and full tint which looked great!!!

Evo 8's are very slightly faster than STi's in all tests (R&T and C&R)

yup...went to the races last night and saw living proof that evo 8s are beasts.. they beat everything down there from big old v8 muscle cars to a couple of highly modified sti's including my buddy mark's... I didn't race though, got there too late and didn't want to have to pay 15 to race once... my friends e46 m3 spanked some camaro though it was awesome...

I don't mean to start the millionth Evo vs. STi argument here, but I love the STi and they are absolute equals in the dirt. Unless you were to bring up WRC.. Solberg anyone?

LongHairedHippy: Just let him die out. The odds are on that he won't reproduce, so the problem will take care of itself

dosnt solberg race for peugeot or am i thinking lobe anyway. i love the wrc and we need it to come to america. preferably the west coast. anyways i love the sti because i am subaru biased, while i still acknowledge that the evo8 is faster, just wait till they next gens come out and it should be a whole new ball game. im all for turbo and all wheel drive in the dirt. rock on with what ever you drive and when you drive it, drive it hard.

SOLBERG & PEUGOT???? DUDE put down the crack pipe!! LOL jus given ya crap, Marcus Gronholm drives for peugot and loeb drives for citroen. as for them being equals, (sti and evo) NOT A CHANCE the evo is no where near the STI off road. I used to drive rallies here in the us and ran with an STI. Yes we do have rallies here. it was run by SCCA but now Rally America is who is in charge of ours.

specs on STI:

2.5-Liter DOHC aluminum-alloy 16-valve 4-cylinder horizontally opposed Subaru Boxer engine with Active Valve Control System (AVCS). Sodium-filled exhaust valves. Iridium spark plugs.

Horsepower
300 hp @ 6000 rpm

300 lb.-ft. @ 4000 rpm

Fuel & Ignition System
Sequential multi-port fuel injection. Electronic Throttle Control (ETC). Engine management with integrated self-diagnostics and adaptive driving habits capability. Direct ignition.

Engine-speed-sensing quick-ratio variable power-assisted rack-and-pinion. Power-steering oil cooler.

Turning Circle, Curb-to-Curb
37.4 feet

Suspension
High-performance sport-tuned 4-wheel independent suspension. Front: Inverted strut-type with aluminum-alloy lower L-arm. Rear: Inverted strut-type with parallel link. Front and rear stabilizer bars.

Brakes
Brembo performance brake system. 4-wheel disc, ventilated front and rear. 4-channel, 4-sensor Super Sport ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD).

Manual Transmission (Standard)
Fully synchronized close-ratio 6-speed manual with clutch pedal-controlled starter interlock.


Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD)
Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) AWD: Exclusive to the WRX STi. Features both manual and automatic modes, uses an electronically managed multi-plate transfer clutch in conjunction with a planetary gear-type center differential to control power distribution between the front and rear wheels. Normally, DCCD splits power 35% front and 65% rear. DCCD also features a helical-type limited-slip front differential and mechanical limited-slip rear differential.

so as you can see the STI is not only faster but as we (rally guys) know the STI will certainly beat an EVO. I like the EVO but if i have a choice i am going STI. Now the driver has a lot to do with the race though. good car bad driver = loss.

I am a bit biased though as i raced STIs in my rallies. Can't argue with the facts though.

also don't always go by what the magazines say. you gotta member what these cars are made for. autoX an EVO will have the advantage but not in rally. These cars are made based off the WRC version as that is a requirement for the cars driven in the WRC. the companies must make a certain amount of their cars production worthy in order to use them for rallies.
