Can't say I'm not surprised. I could have sworn I read something about Evos understeering, maybe it was the Evo8? But I don't think there's a big difference between the 8 and 9 aside from the MIVEC.
Unless if I'm confusing the Evo with the STi.

And I really beg to differ. Although community may not appear to be of your concern (if it isn't, then why are you on e46f?), the STi and Evo owners I know, tend to remind me of the rice-boys I see in Civics.
I only know of one person, who happens to be a friend, who's actually used one of those car's motors to a real potential and built an 800hp STi. Otherwise people slap on an exhaust and tune and think they're gods of the street.

Also, although your time slips may say differently, I found this thread that's worth a read:
