So cool, these things were an absolute weapon back in the day & are still an amazing drive today going on this article http://www.evo.co.uk/mitsubishi/evo/...hi-evos-tested

The Mškinen is 13 years old but has a feel that is much more modern. The ride is firmer and the damping more tightly controlled, but itís certainly not harsh once up to speed. More importantly, that hyper-agility that I remember so clearly has arrived in style. The quicker steering isnít jumpy but the rate of response is fast and pinpoint accurate. Understeer is never an issue at all and the Active Yaw Control feels more aggressive in pinning the front tyres on line and edging the rear just a few degrees wide as you commit to the throttle.

Very envious of you sir - enjoy!!

Cheers,
Stephen

There's a nice looking grade 4B example at auction tomorrow with only 57000kms if anyone is keen.

Picked it up last Thursday and have enjoyed every minute of driving it. The paintwork it very stained (acid rain, fall out, etc), but with a bit of elbow grease I feel it will come up fine. I did a test patch and it cleaned up well. Need to commit a whole day to doing this, maybe more.

Yesterday I removed the huge gamut of electronic gizmos related to tolls, GPS, etc and the big double-din Japanese head unit and installed a simple JVC headunit with bluetooth. I also removed the turbo timer and boost gauge, for no other reason than to give the cops 2 less reasons to defect me.

I made a list of OEM parts and placed an order with Amayama last night with a view to make it as original and complete as possible.

Needs new brake rotors which I'll do when I repaint the Brembos.

Going to change all the fluids over Easter when I can get to my neighbour's hoist.

I haven't had a "fast" car for about 12 years so its been great to scratch the itch again.

Gave it a good going over with clay bar, polish and wax. It has come up really good and all the staining has gone. I was recommended to use Bowdens Own products and I must say I'm very impressed.

Pictures speak a thousand words.
