Shiv has to play kind of a cat and mouse game right now. This isnt an attack on Shiv by any means. But let's face it he is a business man and he wants to make money off of both of us (the sti owners and the evo owners) But right now his biggest market is the evo because they are out and sti's are still at least 2 to 3 months away before people start to buy mods.
I don't think you will ever hear shiv say one is clearly better than the other even if one was. Unless he had a way to make each closer. Like I said this is not an attack on Shiv. Just common business since.
