What is all this BS about the EVO having better handling & braking than the GT . . . who cares! The GT 05 is going smoke your ass in straight line acceleration, which accounts for 99% of the street/track racing. When was the last time you heard somebody saying " i was smoking this car until he pass me on a curve/ outbrake me." The only reason to choose a evo/sti over a 05 GT, is if autocroxing is you thing or if you deal with snowy winters.
