It all started with Alif borrowing a friend’s Evo IX for a night. He’d drove it up some mountain roads in Melbourne and fell in love with the Evo’s distinct 4WD handling and agility. So he bought one as soon as he could. Naturally wanting to drive it to the limits, he took it to Winton Raceway, a local circuit in Melbourne. Soon, he’d found himself comparing lap times with friends who drove other tuner cars based on the likes of the STIs, GTRs, Silvias and other Evo owners. Thats when he knew the Time Attack bug had bitten him deep.
One modification after the other, Alif found his car bordering a non road legal car due to noise and emissions (Yes they are strict about that stuff in Australia). After deciding to go all out into Time Attack events, he then sold his Evo 9 for an older Evo 6 TM as a base for his time attack build. Reason being the Evo 6 TM is about 100kg’s lighter than a stock Mitsubishi Evo IX.
