They gave the edge to the STi, but could only muster a 13.8 1/4mile time. ***? Sounds like Motorweek needs a new test driver. The also said the STi's brakes edged out the EVO, sweeeeet.

"The STi, on the other hand, is stronger under braking, with its larger Brembos delivering superb power and feel. Front end push is more pronounced, however, even with the adjustable differential, giving a good bit of speed away to the Lancer at mid-corner. Speed that is easily recovered on the way out, as the super-torquey Subaru simply walks away from its Mitsubishi rival."

IIRC, aren't the rotors on the Evo a bit larger than those on the STi? I can't remember the numbers...

I watched it...I was unhappy about their results...


EVO - 0-60 in 5.0 seconds, 13.8 quarter mile @ ?
STI - 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, 13.8 quarter mile @ 100mph

I don't know what to say...I guess the gearing of the STI has really messed things up for the straight away...
