oooooooh, it begins... I will concede that the evo beats the sti on the track, but when it comes to rally driving, ride quality, overall performance in the wide spectrum of situations you encounter as a driver, and, of course, pimpitude, the sti wins every time. I'm not a track driver. The evo is more technical and precise, but that means your all up in the gears every minute, whereas you can start the sti in second if you feel like it. I think they're both great cars, of course. I just happen to like the better one.
I have an interesting video off car and driver TV where they compare them. of course, they're close, with the evo beating on some tests and the sti on others. but at the end, the two hosts ask each other which one they like better, and they both say "They are both great cars, and i'm not sure I can really tell you why, but for me it's the sti every time." People who know cars just feel it.
