Bad driver who cant launch. The Evo is good for 13.6-13.8 if you know what you are doing and the STi is around 13.4-13.5 Both should be trapping around 102-103 mph too. The mid 5 second 0-60 and 14 second quarter mile times on the Evo X from a few other mags were based on tests done with the version before it had its final ECU tune. The times they got are closer to a WRX or an SRT4.
This is the Evo X from Edmunds
0-30 mph: 1.7 seconds
0-45 mph: 3.1 seconds
0-60 mph: 4.9 seconds
0-75 mph: 7.2 seconds
Quarter-mile: 13.6 seconds at 101.3 mph
This is the STi
"our STI cleared 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds and rendered the quarter-mile history in 13.3 seconds at 102.3 mph"
