HKS CT230R ’08

Let’s get this out the way right now. This car looks awesome! It has just patches or chrome paint and even the rear side windows are chrome. Mixed with the red this thing just looks too good drifting down the road. It is 4WD which makes it a lot easier to control too. It’s based on the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, but tuned by HKS to be a beast and now re-tuned by Team Shmo to be a drift beast. You can power through corners pretty hard and not worry about crashing, but do watch how little gas you use as the 4WD system can take over and cause you to lose the drift. Heavy on the gas will make it spin pretty easy however and get you back sideways.

If you are a big fan of Mitsubishi Evo’s you have to check out the Viva la Evolution T-Shirt. A comical take on the “Viva la Revolution” or “Vive la Revolution” meaning “Long Live the Revolution”. The symbol is always a first in the air, but for us Evo lovers now has car keys and the Evo logo underneath. Comes in many different colors for shirts and designs.
