    The EVO 6.5 might turn more with say 1 turn of lock on than a VR-4 or EVO 7 or whatever, but the radius at full lock could still be worse.

    Official for a VR-4 is 5.8m, normal 2wd 8G is 5.4m

    What's the curb to curb figure though? Carfolio says 11.6m which sounds about right.

    I was gonna say that's right. The turning circle is a real bitch.
    Go the the hand brake turn I say. Although I'm yet to do it in the EVO. used to do them in the R32 all the time. SWEET!!!!!!!!!!

    I really enjoy driving the Evo about but I hate the heavy clutch. Not sure I'd like to drive it everyday like that. Got to be careful when swapping from the EVO to MEL's Leggy as the clutch is a heap lighter (stuff the foot through the firewall) and the pressure point is in a completely different place.

    That's utter shit for a 4-dr sedan of its size. :thumbdown:
    Couldn't think of something with a worse turning circle than the Legnum.

    Give me my old '94 Mazda HD 929 4WS anyday! RWD+4WS= Heaps fun!

    Even my RVR shits all over it. Its turning circle is great.

    Turning circle in a Silvia depends on how hard you dump the clutch.

    EVO turning circle is Shocking. I could barely pull off a U-Turn in most courts! Far worse the the VR-4.

    Just bought a WRX *cringes at potential insults and baggings*
    Had never considered them (because of the HEKTIC reputation that comes with them) till i drove my mates 09...
    Its so nice Tom, comes with recaros, momo wheel and sunroof (how hard is that combo to find in a vr4) swear by them now, keep an eye out for it in the area, not hard to miss.. Its aztec yellow ha ha
