Now ask yourself which one looks better doing it! I ran a tuned normal ol' WRX to about 130 and he either got off the gas or had nothing after 100 MPH. Just thinking about the way that he was driving and baiting me into running I don't think that he let off, I think his car lost ran out of it's powerband. I know the SVTF couldn't pull either an STI or EVO but it wouldn't make a bad showing once you get over 90.

I can tell you with out reading eny post on here the evo is fater off the line but slow at higher speed while the sti is a litter slower off the line it has more power at high end than an evo so if it were a race it would be svt evo sti. I have seen an EVO and STI race before

With the sti and the DCCD if you completely unlock the center differential do you get better highway acceleration while only powering the front wheels? Also for a quick tid bit of Info I read that the center diff will unlock when you pull the ebrake so you can do ebrake turns. THATS FRICKEN COOL!
