Lancer Evo VII (drift update)
Share this model:
Got this car just recently as a present from my girlfriend, i thought i would try and do a more street version rather than the box art (mostly because the thought of all the stickers just wasn't sitting well in the Andrew camp).
It was a nice kit to build especially as the kit came with full bearings and the dust covers. It does sit a bit rear low, but that’s easy fixed.
Overall nice car to build and run and can be made go pretty quickly with just a standard motor, thanks to the three different spur gears allowing you to choose the final drive ratio.
UPDATE: After realising that the lancer wasn't the best-suited car for local terrain i decided to have some fun and make it a drift car. Abs drift tyres, much tightened suspension, a locked rear diff (an essential mod to improve stability during the drift) a bit of geometry alterations and this car can really drift.
It does need a bit more poke though so a hotter motor is the next thing on the list and a bit more car control wouldn't go amiss either. I'm sure ebay will come to my help........well for the motor anyhoo.
Now thats nice!
yo man that is one sik car how much did u spend on gettin th shell coz i want one like that soooo badb email me cheers bro !!!!!!
Nice. Whats the car like off road??????
I wasn't too impressed, it bottomed out a lot. I would say it's best suited for blaze/fine gravel type surfaces. But if you go fast enough you bounce over most things : )
