It's his own inner conflict :D

But seriously, n/a, if you wonder why STi was listed as "Racing Rival" in 3 MPS page or vice versa, I can explain that these "Racing Rivals" are selected automatically based on power/weight ratio.

Why would you compare an STI to a 3 MPS? STI VS EVO ONLY! it should be WRX vs 3 MPS
