Yea that review makes little sense. Like spburns said, pick the STI if all you want is a track car, but the EVO will run away in the canyons. Right, that makes perfect sense. Also, I've never heard a review saying the EVO was a more comfortable ride. Remember too, the STI's got the new spec c geometry and all the trick diffs. It lapped faster than the JDM GSR in the current best motoring. Not saying the STI will outhandle the EVO, but either way, they'll be close enough in that department that the better driver should be faster. In the straights though, different story.
