    For the current Duel of the Week, go to this thread.


    Welcome to the Duel of the Week thread! Every Monday I will name two cars that have about the same performance, and you can compare lap times, looks, performance etc, and then vote which car is better. At the end of every week I will announce the winner, and I will announce the duel for next week. Also, be sure to check out the GT6 Duel of the Week Club for weekly time trials. So with that, lets get this thread underway. Figured I would do an easy matchup this week, just to see how this thread will work out. Anyway, this week's duel is..........

    [​IMG]
    The 2010 Subaru Impreza Sedan WRX STI

    vs

    [​IMG]
    The 2007 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X!!!


    Possibly the biggest rivalry in automotive history, these two have been duking it out for over 20 years and with the production of the Lancer to end this year, who will rival the Impreza? Take a drive in both of these vehicles and let me know which is better.
    Let the battle begin.
    • Please abide by the rules stated in the GTPlanet Acceptable Use Policy
    • Absolutely positively no mods or hacks when doing the time trials. Doing such will result in permanent disqualification from future trials.
    • Respect others opinions on which car they choose to vote for
    • Don't whine or complain if a certain car doesn't win a duel
    • Please send all suggestions for future duels as a conversation with me
    • No trolling
    • No flamewars
    • In the event of a tie, the winner shall be determined by a one lap showdown in which the cars will be driven by me
    • In the event of someone being banned during the time frame of a duel, that person's vote will not count
    • Don't try to sway other's votes
    • If I make a mistake, don't hesitate to tell me. Trust me, I don't bite too hard :D
    • And most of all, just have fun!

    I have an idea for the next one: Audi R8 V8 vs Nissan GT-R '07. Should be a tough one. Here? I'm on the fence, Evo is a better racer but i like the STi more, without any particular reason.

    I said it was possibly the biggest rivalry, not the biggest rivalry.

    Nissan GT-R '07 vs Chevrolet Corvette Z06 '06. End it once and for all. :p

    That aside, this is my most favorite rivalry ever, simply because I'm a sucker for Lancer Evos, and the Impreza keeps being nosy and annoying and just won't give up without a fight :D

    I think the STI looks better, but the Evo seems to have the better performance. I never compared them in GT, but I will do and report :tup:

    I'm putting my money on the Evo.
    I do have lots of Subie love, though.

    Isn't this rivalry (EVO X Vs Impreza Wrx Sti '10) had a trophy you could get in GT5 for playing 2 Player mode with one driving the Evo while other driving the Impreza?

    The Evo X has some sort of invisible ASM thing which slows you down on high speed corners. I'd go for the WRX. Plus the WRX is lighter.

    Another rivalry could be M3 vs. C 63 AMG. Though in GT6 the M3 is overpowered so it would win every time.

    What about the C6 ZR1 vs R35 GTR? It's been a heated rivalry since the GTR was sold in the US at the same price range as the C6.

    Tsukuba with no driving aids, with PS3 controller

    Subaru: 1:04.725
    Mitsubish: 1:05.852

    Bonus Tuned Touring Cars (1 Lap):

    Subaru: 0:56.089
    Mitsubishi:0:54.879

    Final thoughts: the Subaru was the better car around the track but the Mitsubishi was easier to control. If it wasn't for the weight setback the Evo would be the better car.

    I finally found the time to get some laps done, my chosen track was Monaco since it is a very enjoyable track with difficult mid to low speed corners and small straights to test acceleration and handling.
    All laps were done with SH, no aids and in Manual.

    Subaru Impreza: 1:50.865
    Mitsubishi Evo: 1:51.230

    As a short overview, the Subaru felt a lot better through the corners with less understeer compared to the Evo and I felt as if it could reach higher speeds so if you're going to decide out of the two best go for the Subaru although the Evo is definetly not a bad choice! Maybe after tuning the results would be different.

    Well it's the end of the week, and that means its time to announce the winner of this past week's duel. Every week I will give a review of both cars, so with that, lets dive in.

    Both cars tested on Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit and after 3 laps these are the best lap times on each car:

    2010 Impreza WRX STI: 1:42.278
    2007 Lancer Evolution X: 1:43.622

    So the Impreza is over a second faster than the Evo. The Impreza seemed to be the easier driver of the two, being that it weighed less than the Evo. The Impreza also had the better sound over the Evo. The Evo seemed to be a bit twitchy on the corners which made for a slightly challenging drive. So the car that I choose is the Impreza. But what did you guys vote on?

    Impreza: 5
    Lancer: 2

    And the winner is..........

    [​IMG]
    The 2010 Impreza Sedan!!!

    Tomorrow I will announce the duel for this coming week. Thanks for taking part in this thread for everyone who participated and anyone who will follow in weeks to come ;)
