compare cars...

Hey you guys i'm kinda of bored so i thought of something... we should compare cars. For example the EVO and the STi, their both used for the same purpose...rally racing. Which one do you think is better. There r pleanty of other vechile that are almost the same thing, like also the toyota matrix and that suzkui one that looks the same.

EVO vs STI
I like the STI better, at first I liked the evo but to me, the build quality looks sort of cheap compared to the STI.

RSX-S vs Celica GTS
Looks wise I love the celica, though since the RSX-S is basically a honda...theres more aftermarket support for it.

The RSX-s and celica GTS is a good one...hmmm.. what about the G35 and the 350Z? or the S2000 and the MR-2?
The Z i like, but I have'nt heard any good thing from the G35. I like the Mr-2 Because it looks cool( It kinda looks like a boxster If you look at it) but the S2000 looks SEXy and sleek

I'd take the Z over the Skyline since it's not a GT-R.

Viper or Corvette?

I think it looks a little nicer than the previous versions.

I don't like the new NSX concepts though...

Why compare basically the same car from the same company? A better comparison would be between the Z and the RX-8 or RX-8 and G35 Coupe or even an S2k and RX-8. happywink Sorry, I just test drove one today and I'm still feeling the effects of redlining at 9K RPMs...

Jaguar XJ220... amazing car

RX-8 vs. 350Z... i test drove the RX-8 and wasnt impressed, its more comparable to a GTS or RSX-s.
the 350Z on the other hand is a great car with alotta power and great looks.

g35 and 350z are not very good comparisons. although they both have similar horsepower and torque, the g35 sportcoupe is considerably heavier, has a backseat, more trunk space, and also is not considerred a "race" inspired car.

evo vs sti...depends upon what you use it for. the evo has the better handling while the sti has the better drivetrain.

yeah..only 300 horses though..thats ridiculous for the price of that car. you need to be pushing more (stock...we all know they can be modded blah blah blah) to be a true exotic in my opinion.

ferrari 550 vs porsche boxter s...no contest and in waaay different classes. 550 is a v12 and boxter s is a flat-6. the 0-60 times of these cars is OVER 1 second. thats ridiculous speed ont he 550's part.

99' eclipse is basically the same thing as a talon. same car for the most part.

wut bout minivans? wave
chrysler town and country vs dodge cavalier (is that a minivan), vs toyota sienna?

g35 and 350z arent really any comparison. g35 is more luxury sporty and great sound and good performance.
g35 weight distribution: 53/47 (front/rear)
weight: approx. 3500lbs depending on model
280hp
i really like g35. great looks inside and out. worth what you pay for

...evo8 vs sti

sti=6speed evo=5speed
evo = better handling
sti=more power

i like the evo looks more, and they arnt as common, hear where i live i see at least 2 sti's every day, there is soo incredibly many where i live, and i only see an evo like 2-3 times a month

if i had the choice i would rather have evo, but ive never driven either, so i cant really make a real conclusion

^^same here. except i've only seen one evo and no sti's around here.

but i'd rather an evo because of looks & handling. they said that ugly hoodscoop on the sti would "grow on me" but its been a awhile now and i'm still hating it.

I like the STI a lot more than the Evo. It looks a lot better IMO and probably has a bigger aftermarket.

There's a lot of STi's around here but I've maybe seen 1 EVO-8 since it's release.

I'd also pick the STi over the EVO-8. I'm not feeling the newest STi's as much as the previous ones though.

thats ridiculous for rims...you can buy pretty much any rim you want for that price. what other countries have the steering wheel on the american side? here is a pic of the interior of the '02 wrx sti:

Mitsubishi, quality on thre vehicles is not that good, and the only reason the EVO is so great is because of TCS and AYC controls which, the American EVO's don't have.
