Jesse’s Time Attack Evo on White 18×9.5 +22 Rota DPT

Owner: Jesse
Car: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX RS
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - White (5×100x114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 265/35/18
Suspension: JIC FLT-A2s

We are very excited for this since this is only the first part of a double feature. This beautiful Evo used to be Jesse’s daily driver/time attack car. Jesse was successful in his last year’s quest at Speed Ventures Time Attack series and was able to place 2nd overall in Modified AWD. This is definitely not your average friendly neighborhood winged Evo. Sadly, Jesse had to let this one go but don’t worry, the second part of this feature will be all about his new project car. Stay tuned!

Remember the super green Grids and green graphics on Taylor’s WRX? Well he’s now on the new 18×9.5 +38 Rota MXR in Royal Silver! He takes his car around to get groceries and to set hot laps. Rota wheels can be the wheels for any day of the week! We’re loving the track pictures currently floating around on Facebook! Stay tuned for some pictures of it on Buttonwillow Raceway later this month for Global Time Attack!

Taylor would like to say, “None of this would be possible without my awesome team at Forced Air Technologies, Snail Performance Tuning Division, and also Turbosmart USA, LIC Motorsports, and all of our supporters for their continuous support! And definitely a shout out to Wheeldude.com and Rota Wheels for their support.”
