Default Looks Like the STI Won the Battle

EVO's are dead. I hope this doesn't hurt the future improvements/ innovations of the STI.

Its sad, as the EVO is a huge reason of why the WRX and STi are the cars that they are today.

There are also rumors going around that WRC is changing the rules again, and Subie will be back in and competing. I guess they got sick of the only two companies in it being Citroen and Ford. And I guess Mini is trying to get it going on.

Sad to hear actually, not sure if I agree with their strategy but that's on them. The only thing I would have bought in the Mitsu line up was the EVO. Not so with other manufactures.

Wrx is faster in a quarter mile because of the fewer gear changes. Around a track it's usually Sti every time.. Usually.

You could almost say if you lined a wrx and a Sti up for a quarter mile race that the winner would be determined by which car had the better driver. It's that close

Mitsu sucks these days. Some of there cars look to have been beaten badly with the ugly and stick.

Not that the impreza hasn't been beaten by the same ugly stick.
