Title Fight: Evo X vs. WRX STI

We're on the road in the shadow of Mt. Fuji as we compare the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X and 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI in the first meeting of these turbocharged, all-wheel-drive supercars.

the new Subaru is horrible, and looks nasty.
I'd say EVO ftw in this case

I like those two but. I was just watching the new Honda Civic Type R and I think that would smoke both of those.
Look at the new type Rhttp://youtube.com/watch?v=Yd3gDNqtFI4

Civic Type R: that's the European version. It's shorter than the US spec Civic.

Is the type R coming to America? Because ever since I've seen it I wanted one.

The Sti and Evo would kill the Civic.

the Civic hatch (euro spec) is one helluva futuristic car...
I remember when back in 06 or so at the IAA in Frankfurt I sat in the car...it was like in an SF movie...the dash and everything...

Have you ever read any articles on either of the cars you accuse of having shitty suspensions? The Evo and the STi are on steroids they are very very very capable. In fact many people said the Evo suspension was too harsh and harsh to me doesn't suggest a pussy suspension, it suggests a very capable suspension because cushy just doesn't get you around a corner faster. The japan spec Civic Type R has 222hp the Evo and STi are both pushing close to 300hp in their 2007 setups, you also get AWD as opposed to FWD in the civic. Go watch some WRC and then come back here and tell me again that the Civic type R will beat them. If that doesn't do it come to the track with me sometime, I know a whole bunch of guys with Evos and STIs and other subies and we can strap you down in and see what you think. I will give you that the Type R is lighter by about 500lbs but sometime you need that power to keep up, the Type R looses at the Track any day to a STi or Evo I'm sorry.

Man, oh man. You should get your facts straight before you make a comment like that. Nick said it all. Maybe you should take him up on the offer to ride in one of them. I have a friend here in Germany with a Subie and that thing runs like a cat out of a bag. If you watch WRC, you would see that Evo's and STI's are some of the more dominant cars around.
