Oh Boyd That’s Quick – Boyd Racing Evolution X
Angled front view of the Evolution X being worked on, no front wheel or front bumper
Carefully modified Chargespeed body panels are affixed at all corners and front and rear.

The Chargespeed front bumper has been modified to accommodate JC Fabworks’ changes, the ducting, the splitter, and more. The OEM hood has been heavily massaged to improve airflow through the engine bay. Chargespeed front fenders and rear overfenders are used along with their side skirts and a modified Chargespeed rear bumper. I hope Chargespeed is reading how many times we’ve said Chargespeed.

Here’s a closeup of some of the attention to detail on this build.

This is an example of the modification to the-aero-company-who’s-already-been-named-a-half-dozen-times’ bumper, with cutouts for the ducting to attach to. Also notice the grille installed into the bumper opening which helps prevent debris from hitting any of the coolers.

By the way, we mentioned them 7 times, if you’re counting.

It takes a lot of shoe to stick this car to the track.

The Mitsubishi is now wearing Enkei RPF1 in a size of 18×9.5 with a +35 offset. Those wheels are then swaddled in high-quality Hoosier A7 rubber, sized 275/35R18.

Boyd Racing and JC Fabworks created a potent package out of this Mitsubishi.

Duran and Martin have a plan for 8-10 time attack events in the 2019 season, as well as the Pike’s Peak Hill Climb. They tell us that 60% of the car has changed since this Road Atlanta Global Time Attack Event. If I got something wrong, just put your Haterade® away. In the stopwatch racing arena of time attack, it takes continual evolution of a platform to stay on top. While Derek Boyd was able to pilot the Mitsubishi to a first place finish in Unlimited AWD at the Global Time Attack Road Atlanta event, the Boyd Racing and JC Fabworks duo intends to continue charging forward to find more speed.

And, if you’re nice, they might help you out with build planning, chassis work, cage work, electrical work, aero design work, and just about everything else needed to handle builds for drag, drift and road racing. But you’ll probably need to pay them. You might even be able to…

charge it.


  1. You did get something wrong, there’s no apostrophe in Pikes Peak, it was universally accepted to remove it decades ago. Just kidding though, no haterade here. Cole builds some seriously badass stuff.

  2. Solid build! It’s obvious a lot of thought went into it. I especially approve of the turbine housing choice.

  3. Dang, it was going so well until the exhaust blown diffuser.

    The team need research the Coanda effect. Because they need to install a flat tapered exhaust tip. And it needs to be parallel to match the exact angle of the diffuser. On top of that, they need to reprogram the ECU so that it still has exhaust flow on throttle lift, or you will lose downforce during cornering, which is when you need it most.

    Also, the flow straighteners can be curved, so the air flow diffuses laterally, too. This is a very simple modification. Take a look at the F1 blown diffuser undertrays. It wasn’t that long ago that the EBD was state of the art.
