|Surprisingly the EVO uses a stock oil cooler.
The all important suspension is also relatively simple. JRZ 3-way adjustable remote reservoir dampers with Eibach ERS springs and JRZ camber plates are tied with a Whiteline 27mm rear swaybar. An AMS bumpsteer kit helps keep the steering straight even with a lower ride height. In the rear AMS adjustable rear toe links and eccentric delete are used to give a wider toe adjustment range. Cusco front and rear strut braces stiffen the chassis. An AMS built cage also provides plenty of chassis stiffness as well as driver protection.
The Dampers use JRZ supplied camber plates. The rebound adjusters on the JRZ’s are on the top of the strut shaft.
|The high and low speed compression adjusters are on the end of the remote reservoirs.
18X10.5 lightweight and strong forged Volk wheels are used; either CE28N or TE37’s held on with Darkside Ti finish swivel seat open ended lug nuts. Nitto NT01 tires are used to provide consistent and long lasting grip through many heat cycles while being Modified Class DOT legal.
The EVO uses the stock Brembo calipers with Girodisk floating rotors. Project Mu brake pads provide fade free stopping with this simple set up.
|The rear Girodisc rotor has an alloy hat to replace the heavy iron parking brake disc, this gets rid of quite a bit of rotating weight.
The brakes are true to the keep it simple theme. Since the stock EVO X brakes are pretty big, Girodisc two piece front and rear floating rotors are used along with AMS braided steel brake lines. Project Mu Clubracer brake pads provide fade free stopping.
