1992 MIT­SUBISHI EVO II (CD9A)

NZ Performance Car - - V 4&rotary South Island Champs -

Hamil­ton-based Lawrence Knight re­cently com­pleted the trans­plant of the 350kW 4G63 en­gine set-up from his pre­vi­ous Evo, which ran a 10.6-se­cond pass on chromies. It went into this Evo II fol­low­ing gear­box fail­ure which re­sulted in a high-speed wall con­tact at Mere­mere Drag­way.

The new build has al­ready run a 10.8-se­cond pass with only 303kW at the wheels, and rid­ing on street tyres. Lawrence wasn’t able to crack into the 10s down in Motueka, with a best time of 11.0.
