Default Changing religions . . .WRX to EVO

Contemplating going from my modded Bugeye to a modded EVO as they have a better reputation as being faster and more reliable. Any one wish to talk me out of going to the other side?

Sound like arse, don't have much character. Rather tinny on the inside.

But are fast.

everything is alot lighter & flimsier in the evo's, but that makes for a very quick car once you smash some boost & get 3-400hp atw

i picked an old one up recently (gsr body with full evo 3 conversion) i haven't driven it yet as it needed quite a bit of work one of the things was the rear subframe had torn too many launchy mcfarken's from previous owners me thinks, but yeah removed it last night & the thing is so lightweight/thin/weak compared to say a subaru rear cradle that feels like it weighs twice as much

so yeah you may not blow gearboxes or spin bearings quite as easily, but other area's will cop the brunt of the power

here's a pic


p.s. anyone got a rear cradle from an evo 3 for sale? LOL

Drive one. If you like it, drive an equivalent model WRX/STi, then make your choice.

Having owned an evo x I would never buy a Subaru again, they both have shit interiors but the big difference is how they drive.

Really, when you drive the evo you will find that the Subaru is found wanting!

And yes I am a Subaru guy, so there is no bias towards the Mitsubishi

LOL when you said picked up you meant the previous owner abandoned it on your front verge right Chris

price may be one. Evos seem to hold their price or asking price better than a wrx...
