HKS is doing very well in Japan with the new Evo: they have discovered almost 100 extra horsepower and are well along in suspension tuning. All of these parts except the engine tuning would work on North American Evos; but we’ll have to wait for HKS USA to finish their own tuning before we can duplicate this fully. The results will probably be a bit lower on our 91 or 93 octane fuel.
And note which transmission is used: TC-SST! Some folks said it couldn’t be done… others more correctly said it was a matter of time and effort. And it seems to have happened even more quickly than we thought.
I’d have to question the 19s on this car.. .this is a top-heavy car and while the roll rate was probably considerably improved, it’s still a question in my mind whether this tire is too square for a car with such a high roll center. And IMHO the front strut-type suspension won’t change camber enough for this problem. Checking The Tire Rack, I’m looking over appropriate tires in this size: link to The Tire Rack .
