STi will absolutely rape the r32, and should handle the evo (im assuming you are referring to the evo VIII) too, assuming all stock and equal drivers. This is a no brainer imo.

But once you bring mods into the picture, i think the evo will take over (4g63 motor responds to mods really nicely), i dunno how the r32 responds to mods, but evo will own an sti w/ equal mods.

i just realized that WeaponR never explained what it is he wants to know.

If you are talking about which of the three one would prefer to own...then id choose the evo.

I'd still take the Sti, even though We would have to slove that problem wouldn't we Steveo. That racing seat might be a nice alternative to cutting me off at the shins

i would go with the Evo, since im a Evo freak. Close race though, stock, the STI will probaly beat the Evo in a straightaway. But throw in a couple of turns, the Evo has better curb weight, better breaking power, and overall better handling, pure speed;STI, overall;Evo. Tune up? Evo, as someone mentioned earlier, the 4g63 does respond to mods pretty well.

Ok first off im from new zealand if you dont no where that is get a map!

Ok these 3 cars I dont no if the american versions got de-tuned or up-tuned but here in NZ they all have 280hp which is about 207kw I think now we have the biggest variation on japenese cars in the world outside Japan we get everything they make as I no in the USA you guys miss out on some mean import rides ok enough shit the 3 cars.......

Im not sure on the 1/4times on these cars so ill skip that but as it goes to 0-100kms (0-60miles) the evo8 is the quickest doing it in 5.3 seconds from standing start then the suburu sti did it in 5.4 so they are close they are really twins jus under different badges if you look at all the specs! the skyline think you said an r32 would rip them both up if it was tuned they are made our fastest import street car is an r32 runs low 8s our best evo is an evo 3 dont think you get anything up your ways below a 7 bad luck the evo 3 runs low 9s and we dont have many suburus running 1/4s here as they are alot harder to get more out of your money performance wise as the evo's and skylines.

Overall thoe the Evo 8 just betsthe sti as they are so close together (twins) but dew to drivabiltity(fun) the evo and also just mite stick sum more shit into you friendly peeps and say you guys are missing out on the meanest evo up your way its the evo6 tommi maniken edition (the rally driver) this evo you could class as the import king (besides those dam r34s) pumps out 300hp and does a 0-100 in 4.5 seconds and is 100kgs lighter than the evo6 standard version (I want one)

O well enough shit from me look forward to replies
