Thumbs up this month's Evo: Evo 7 vs STi 7

Go buy this magazine, it's got beautiful photography & they love these sort of cars . Here's a summary of the article:

-the STi is over 5 sec quicker to 100 mph than the UK-spec WRX.

-they launched both the cars from redline (!) by sidestepping the clutch.

-the STi is ahead of the Evo until 60 mph (4.8 vs 5.0) but the Evo catches up (tied at 100 mph) and leaves it behind afterwards (at 110 mph, it's 15.8 for the Mitsu and 16.9 for the Sube).

-better skidpad for the Evo (.76 vs .72)

-Evo has completely stripped interior while the STi gets a dressier version of our WRX interior

-Evo has that super cool center diff mode control (tarmac, snow, and gravel!)

-Evo gets 5 stars, STi gets 4.5

Oh, & there's a bunch of other cool stuff in the magazine, but I haven't read it yet.

Cool... I'll have to check it out. Hey, if you don't mind me asking, how much did you end up getting for your RS? I'm just curious.

Danny, I got $15k for my RS... thanks again for the NADA info!

This is the May '01 issue with M3 vs TVR, Skyline, 911, and RS4 ("Fight Club") on the cover. The 911 GT2 on the cover is old news.

Yummy The nice postlady delivered my copy just today. It's a good thing, as I'll be at the relatives all day tomorrow and bored as a post. Well, not with EVO...

Allow me to state, for the record, before this thread gets locked, that if we get THAT version of the EVO IV, I'll dance buck naked in downtown Evanston to the "Macarena."

I just don't see it. I can see a de-contented, slightly emasculated Evo, but not the "whoa, baby" model. I'm not entirely convinced that there will really be an STi version.

Once the enthusiasts get hold of the car, I don't know how well Rex will do among regular folks, who don't know how great a car it is, and will never take advantage of its prodigious capabilities. Those concomitant low sales might put a damper on SOA's plans...

Sure, I'd love to roll up a stoplight in my WRX wagon (June...patience...) and see an STi. That would rock. I don't see it happening, though I'd love to be proven wrong.

the issue is the May 2001 issue. it has a red E46 M3 on the front.

the Evo VII is a very early car that was air freighted (!) to the UK by an importer - Warrender's. it was test driven in AutoCar ~3 weeks back. they liked it quite a lot as well.

note that the Evo was equipped with sub-optimal Goodyears (aren't they all;-) rather than the Evo VII-unique Yoko Advan's which the car was shipped with. the importer assumed that they would get trashed in the test (duh). it would likely have handled better & given better skid pad numbers with the Advans.

I would not say that the Evo VII is "totally stripped out". it's a GSR-spec car w/o a factory audi system & the overall level of spec ont he Evo series has always been a bit below that of normal Impreza's. if it were the RS spec with the titanium turbo & the like it would be more comprative with the STi-RA.

we'll see whether either of these cars make it here in this form in early 2003 - here's hoping so since that's when I need a new car...

ps - I get the magazine direct from the UK from someone at work, so pay the UK subscription price. there is a page for subs direct thru evo in the magazine - this month's information is on page 116 - it's a bit pricey at 78.40 or ~$115/year. you're better off paying the nesstand price of $8 for the issues you want. you have to wait a while (close to a month) but it's not as expensive & you don't have to buy them all...

stiggy-pug,

I have a subscription through EVO itself. I used to buy the issues at the local Barnes and Noble, but after I got hooked on it, they dropped it for a few months. If it was worth it to me to spend $8 on an issue, it was worth a couple extra duckets per month to get it delivered to my house. I barely read my C&D anymore.

Thumbs down

Um, what? I think you're a little mixed up there. You're saying the WRX has a .72 skidpad? That's odd. My old Plymouth Neon had a .84 skidpad, and I was under the impression that the stock WRX had .84 as well. I'm fairly certain that the WRX and Evo don't have worse skidpads than my old Neon. Or am I just imagining things?

Skidpad is highly dependent on the surface. You'll pull more g'z running on asphalt than concrete, for example. Not all magazines test at the exact same location, so you can only compare within mags, not between them.
