I don't have it. Saw somebody post that the Spec C started in the back and ended up passing everyone in the pack including VIII RS. Then the time attack times were faster for the STI too. They said it was the VIII in the race, didn't see it myself.
I have the video...

I believe the starting from the first corner:
New STi
EVO8 RS 5 speed
EVO8 RS 6 speed
New STi Spec C

End of the race:
<smaller but increasing gap>
New STi
<huge huge gap>
New STi Spec C
EVO8 RS 5 speed
EVO8 RS 6 speed

I dont know if you can say that STi is faster.... since STi was
never able to pass the EVO8 GSR in the front... In fact, the gap
between EVO8 GSR and STi was increasing toward the end
of the race.... basically, EVO8 seem to have less understeer
in the corners and EVO8 and STi are pretty much the same
in the straight line... (my initial impression, have to see it again)
Then again... STi spec C was passing both RS models...

So can you say STi is faster?? I dont think so.... Personally I
discard this video as any indication which car is faster...
