YES! A full second faster than the STi! That's obviously because of the fact that it's a short, curvy track. A longer, straighter track would make the STi shine.

However, it's easier to add a little bit of straight line acceleration with aftermarket parts than it is to add corner carving abilities.

Viva la X!

Yea, thats why i'm glad the mitsu went that route. I would have liked more stock power, but thats a small fixable sacrafice.

Good review! In comparison to best motoring the EVO X had a lot more stability.
