Let's see YOUR track Evo

I'm starting to see a lot of track cars in various threads out and about, so I wanted to make a thread for those guys to share what they've learned with each other. Most of the info is out there, just looking to consolidate the stuff for us track lovers.

Rules: ONLY POST YOUR CAR. We don't need to see pictures of the Cyber Evo or the HKS car.

- List your current mods/parts
- Tell us about the state of the car when you first started tracking it, and how it evolved
- What things do you really like about the car and setup
- What things do you not like about the car or setup
- What are your future plans

I'll start....

- Progress 25mm rear bar, set to max.
- Tien camber plates
- Stock bushings everywhere
- Random trunk bracing


- Girodisc 2 piece front rotors
- Raybestos ST43 front pads
- stock rear rotors
- Ferodo DS 2500 rear pads
- SS lines
- ATE Superblue fluid
- Custom ducting with velocity stacks at the bumper and nozzles at the calipers


- 18x9.5 +40 NT03's, with 25mm front spacers
- 265/35/18 BFG R1's


- Custom modified APR splitter with air damn. Sticks out farther, mounts to chassis and is adjustable. You can stand on it.

- No rear seats
- Sparco drivers
- Binary lowered stock Recaro passenger
- Sparco 5 and 6 point harnesses

- Sparco Wheel
- Binary extended delrin shift knob
- Traqmate GPS data logger

Started tracking the car with basic bolts-ons making 320 whp. I was on lowering springs and a rear swaybar, upgraded lines, fluid and pads (DS2500's) and stock tires. That was tons of fun and after wearing out stock tires I moved up to 255 RA-1's. Way more grip and control and I wanted more suspension to help with body roll. But overall it was a great track setup for the money...

Got the KW's even though I wanted Ohlins. But Ohlins were sold out in the USA at the time I was ready. Realized I needed way less swaybar at that point. I ran it at max on the lowering springs, and with the KW's it needed to be on low combined with minimum bump on the rear shocks. This was a nice place to be in terms of parts/money/setup. I should have stayed here MUCH longer. But I had a leaky head gasket and had wanted to build a motor....

Built motor, added aero, got much bigger stickier tires, switched to E85 etc. So far it's been 3 track days and I'm still fixing issues and dialing in the car. Basically almost everything on the car changed and that was hard to deal with. The car became faster than I could just get in and drive. It's also a car I don't like to "waste" by driving on the street, so I've got a daily driver 2nd car.

Things I like:

- E85. Makes good power and is cheap.
- 2.3L and mid-sized turbo. There is no lag coming out of corners. And it makes more power than I need for now.
- Girodisc 2 piece rotors, ST43 pads and ducting. I now have as much stopping power as I want. And no fade issues.
- BFG R1's. Mmmmm grip.
- Big wing, Big splitter
- How the car runs now after 2 years of sorting.

Things I don't like:

- Surging. BOV choice is really important for a track car. My forge valve was worthless and made the car undrivable. I think the APS will work.
- All the cutting, rolling and work needed to run bigger tires. I had done a fair amount of work, but the BFG's took even more to not rub. You gotta work for the big tires to not rub at the track.
- All the effort it takes to run a high power car. I just showed up with the bolt-on car 320whp car. The built car is always got something that needs work. It will get better once it's fully sorted, but shakedowns and sorting takes a lot of effort.
- The big splitter and stock rear wing - it made the car really loose in the rear end at speed. The big wing and rear diffuser made the car much more stable.
- Sorting issues on the car every track day for over a year.


- Maybe gutting and putting in a cage if it turns into a track ONLY car.

UPDATE: Wing done and rear diffuser.

Some data from the track.

Speed through turn 1: 133 mph
Max braking G force: .9
Max turning G's: 1.17

Speed through turn 1: 147 mph
Max braking G force: 1.2
Max turning G's: 1.25

When you are awesome you paint an arc around the friction circle at max grip level. For now I dip into the max areas and transition from brakes/turning and so forth under the grip limit.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get those short little wire rope slings that attach to the turnbuckles for your splitter support?

IX MR, stock except for a Works AB muffler replacement (to eliminate the valve), Works filter, Binary lowering bracket for driver seat, CG Lock, Ferrodo pads and some POS RE050A PP tires (just won't wear out)

She retired her last month, so might do a street build with bolt-ons and a 100 oct map since it is available here

Started tracking the car with basic bolts-ons the same way as OP, and caught the 'bug'

Things I like:

- For the money (which is still relatively a lot) this car is FAST.

Things I don't like:

- Heavy
- Hard on tires
- Hard on Brakes
- Hard on Gas
- Alot of Maintenance (change all fluids after 2-3 events


- Sell and get a spec miata or spec E30
- I wanted to go with a BBK and Cams, oil cooler and some more odds and ends but...

Seriously! This car has been a TON of fun, but to track it regularly is getting expensive. Plus since I bought this car new with a sticker price of 37K the amount invested is high and to wreck it would be a disaster. I love this car but will be selling it soon. I want to have a track dedicated car that I'm not making any payments on!

- Tell us about the state of the car when you first started tracking it, and how it evolved

well what you see is what you get. I found my new addiction when I first tracked it back in June of last year. They more I went to track events, the more I noticed that I was running with some of the faster cars. Thats when deciced to compete in the Redline Time Attack this year and so far I have placed 1st in "Stock Class" at the season opener at Buttonwillow Raceway and another 1st place finish at Willow Springs.

This is all done with my car only pushing 330whp power wise, having it RobiSpec'd out and only a handfull of track days under my belt...

- What things do you really like about the car and setup

the suspension feel is like no other...

- What things do you not like about the car or setup

its a money pit...

- What are your future plans

More power and port work done through Aby at Mil.Spec. Which will enable me to be more competitive in Street Class...

The state of the car when you first started tracking it, and how it evolved:

- Started auto-xing till the stock tires were completely gone
- Upgraded wheels and tires and kept doing auto-x and started doing track days
- Decided to step it up and do some Time Attack
- Upgraded suspension basics (shocks, springs, bushings)
- Added a little power

Things you really like about the car and setup

- Nothing major has needed to be replaced yet
- It has taken everything I've thrown at it without a single complaint
- It is faster around the track than many other cars that have been significantly modded
- The stock Brembos are very capable with a good set of pads

Things you do not like about the car or setup

- Too much understeer
- Too much body roll, contributing to...
- Excessive tire wear and less than optimal grip
- Replacing fluids all the time gets expensive

Future plans

- Ported/Coated Exhaust Manifold
- O2 Housing
- Custom Intercooler
- Front Splitter
- Rear Diffuser or anti-parachute panel
- Fixed-back Racing Seat and 5-pt Harness
- Big Rear Sway Bar
- TRE Rear Diff Upgrade
- Lightweight Flywheel and Clutch
- 18" Wheels and Tires
- Second car for daily use

2006 EVO 9 SE - Just flipped 15K miles

I believe in the 80/20 rule..... 80% of the performance for 20% of the cost. Therefore I have very limited mods .... track time track time track time.... the 15k miles are almost all track miles!!!


1. ETS 3" FMIC - Appearance Mod (Maybe helps maybe not)
2. JDM Rear Bumper -Appearance Mod (Maybe some weight/drag reduction)
3. Ebay TBE with less riced out Magnaflow muffler
4. ECUFlash home grown tune and ECU boost control
5. Perrin Rear Sway Bar
6. RobiSpec Springs
7. ST-43 Track pads (w/cheapest rotors I can find)
8. BFG R1 255/40/17 Track Tires (favorite so far 10.5" wide)
9. Zeitronix WB and MAP for tuning and monitoring
10. And lets not forget the sweet smell of 110 octane turbo blue race fuel!
11. Triple A gold card.... just in case!

I had an 03 before this so all mods transferred over upon purchase. Car was tracked first week I owned it.
Future plans ..... MORE TRACK TIME! (maybe replace stock clutch)
Likes.... It's just as fast as much more extensively modified EVOs. Simply love the car.
Dislikes.... More and more idiots buying EVOs these days due to price drop.
