does anyone else in here own a WRX? :clap:
not yet. hopefully ill have the WRX STi in a few years.
You mean Evo, not STi.
:read: I meant what i said.
P1 all the way!
You meant evo subie boy! :laughing:
I strongly suggest you see my response in the "STi wannabe" thread.
....stop arguing, this STi vs Evo thing has gone on for too long. They are both great cars. The STi is slightly faster then the Evo we have here. But the Evo can put out better times, due to its suspension and its lightweigh. They are equally great cars. Anf FYI the Evo came out before the STi, so it cannot be a wannabe. If you ask any educated car enthusiast, they would answer this is a hopeless battle, it is all personal preference. But the MR is another story, i am sorry STi lovers, the MR just spanks the STi. lol :smoke:
Hehe.. Well.. u said it.

Finally, something we can agree on.
i personally like the STI better than the evo, but like someone mentioned, its personal preference STi is prettier :wink2:
Haha pretty can't get you everywhere, but the STi is a nicer looking car. The new Evo front ends look like something that could be compared to that of a bird beak.
how old are you? do you have any like-minded sisters, preferable 16-18 years of age? are you/they single? :hi: :orglaugh: :mrgreen: :thumbs:
well maybe prettier cant get you anywhere but the STI surely can. I am 21, no sisters like me. Sorry not single. My boyfriend has a blue WRX, planning on getting an STI in a few months :wink2:
16-18. Importluva you're that young? Talking like you do I would have expected you to be somwhere like 21 ish...
its all in good fun. The STi is an excellent choice. You are now one of my fav members here and you get a two thumbs up :thumbs: :thumbs:
I agree that the Evo's have been getting uglier. I prefer the old Evo V and VI much more. But that is an impossible dream for me, since the stupid laws here in Canada are so strict. THe current Evo's are the only ones i am ever going to own or see.
Surprise surprise? Yea, ill be 18 this july 11 (college freshie this august)
wow, so young. Get your first car yet?
yea, i wish. No, im saving my pennies to pay for insanely high college tuition. Using my dad's car in the meantime.
i actually think the opposite. i love the design of the MR in your sig, save for the altezzas. i think it looks better than the STi, but i much prefer the other characteristics of the STi over those of the Evo.
Damn I'll be 17 in July.... Yeah thats good school is always a good thing.
What are you going to major in? (Using your parents car is great you never
have to pay for gas)
I've still got 2 more years until college.. I plan on Buying an RX-7 before I do get off to college...
Doin Electrical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology
(possibly even a double major in mechanical engineering, im not sure yet).
And yes, borrowing their car is free and useful :wink2:
Whats up with the electrical engineering. Cmon man we need more Automotive Engineers, you see that commercial with the new WRX. That could be you instead of those guys in the commercial. That could be YOU, making the next new Imprezza. What the hell is electrical engineering btw?
engineering/designing electronics. the field itself is simply too broad, i will eventually choose a subdivision of EE for my career. i chose the mechanical engineering for the cars, hopefully there is a division in ME that deals with cars. Then i can join Shiv at Vishnu Tuning and make a name for my self :mrgreen:
awww, i had expected u lot to study mechanical engineering like meh. im 19 but im starting my first year of college in late august (i failed 9th grade for being rebellious wooohoo!). im gonna miss high school, it was so fun throwing pepsi cans at the ceiling fans and bugging all the teachers and spending afternoons with the school staff :D
Thats cool Vishnu tuning? Sounds kinda Indian... I'm busting my ass in HS to get good scholarships so I can become a Automotive Engineer possibly work for a major car company or even something like STi or RalliArt... Its a passion...and I MUST do it for a living...
ah yes, the good ol days of being carefree and rash. time to move on i guess :ohcrap:
Yea, the CEO is Shiv Pathak, im assuming he's an indian. Im pretty sure his
company tunes Evos and STis, among others. He is a subject of constant
debate over at nasioc.
And i understand your compassion for cars. Ive had it my whole life. Thats why im so eager to do ME in school.
Yeah they tune Evo's/STi's/911's/and Miatas. All wich would be in my perfect garage. Miatat would be all black with chrome everywhere to protect my masculinity.. :smoke:
I want a STI... does that count as having one?
O.... ok... :oops:
This thread has become more like "let's learn more about Importluva and DSMer" than "wrx?" hah. I have to say WRX is a nice car but I have to support the Evo. Why? I'm not sure, the Evo is ugly and blocky but I've always respected its power and performance. For the WRX, STi dominates the WRC. But only second to the Kia Soreno or whatever thats ripping on WRX with it's rice ball kit.
Hey, Zipper man, no offense, but get your facts straight first. The WRX has never won the WRC championship title before. The car owning the Evo is the Peugeot 206, i think. Its owning everything. And Mitsubishi did not even participate one of the last years. But, Rally racing is half the driver, so you cant jus blame the cars. If only Mitsubishi brought back the Evo VI, they would have a bigger chance at taking the title again. And take back Tommi Makinen!!!
Srry my bad, I'm not that familiar with WRC. People are so hyped about how good the WRX is for dirt racing.
well im sorry about going OT, BUT, you also didnt answer the original question by WRXCHIK :wink2:
Man.... dude... The WRX has won WRC Championships.... you are a... mods no
need to censor... but you are MISINFORMED!
Subaru WRC Wins: (wrc.com)

1994: 1 Win on a Rally by MacRae
1993: McRae gets one win; Burns wins British Campionship
I think you misunderstood me. I didnt mean they havent won a title, im sure they have won an assortment of titles. But rally stats are all depended on the driver. So, i do no think you can judge a car by the championships won. Colin McRae and Tommi Makinen, both great drivers, both of them were the winners for the Mitusbishi and Subaru titles. Depends on who can afford the better drivers. Allister McRae is decent as well :D
Haha I think thats what you meant point and clear. You should'nt really
judge a car better by using WRC wins, even if the same person drove both
cars on different occasions or the same day.
Besides, WRX's are not bad at all. The WRX is a great car, its just that if you like Mitsubishis you're gonna go with the Evo.
haha sorry Zipper, I was just interested because hes going to Georgia Tech, wich is the school I want to go to in 2 years.
Well, i do not think it is as simple as choosing between Mitsu and Subaru. The Evo has a more advanced AWD system. The AYC, Front helical and Rear Mechanical LSD makes the Evo the better handler of the two. But the STi has more power, but if you put the MR against the STi. Both of them have 300hp, i would think that the MR would be the overall winner in all categories.
Again you can mull on and on about the advancments in the EvoMR or STi. Does'nt matter. There are people know the MR is better than the STi and still pick the STi. Like imporluva. Its a matter of choice man, especially when these two cars are so closley related..
No, i think you are misunderstanding me. I am not trying to convince people to choose the MR. I am just saying that the MR is the better performer based on facts. I do not care what car anyone picks, it is just the facts im talking about.
No I'm not. I as well as everyone knows the MR would kick the STi's ass, theres no argument there. I think we've long established that fact. But again no matter wich way you put it, its user preference.
...Ok, think of it this way then. Pretend there are no consumers, pretend there are no users or public. Just computers doing tests and checks to test the performance. That is all i am saying, nothing more, i am just saying based on fact the MR performs better. I am not saying which would sell better, or which make a better choice. Surely, you cant say that is user preference.
I've allready agreed with you that the MR is mechanicly better than the STi, theres no doubt about that. But it still is user preference.
??? The AYC and LSDs simply distribute power between wheels and account for some handling, but the majority of the handling prowess comes from the steering...
OOO... jeez... anyone else see a trend?
I didnt misunderstand you... I proved you were wrong with exactly wat you said and meant. Learn the facts, and go from there!
In memory of the Hobo:
THINK, TYPE, SUBMIT!
thats the only thing i understand when i read the last few replies :D
Haha we're so off topic I don't even know what the orginal question is. Maybe peoples should make topics that actually deal with waht the first question not just "wrx?" that could be anything!
STi is slightly better in the times they both ran but you know i perferbably like the Sti way better i would have to agree with importluva :thumbs:
Stiman, you see that. We're gettin new recruits into the STi fanclub :orglaugh: :thumbs:
We should make a club!
I am president! You are VP... we must start gathering supporters!
i could be a member! :thumbs:
sure, how bout treasurer?
Actually the AYC and the LSD does make a difference in Handling. If you look up how they work it describes how the Evo corners so sharply. They give the outside wheels more torque during turns, therefore giving the outside wheels more power and making one part of the car accelerate faster which in turn gives sharper cornering ability. At least to my knowledge, i might be wrong, i did not get this information from a certified mechanic just a driver on a course that owns an Evo, and makes a living off of it.
Fine by me!
