Throwback Thursday - Jesse’s Evo on 18×9.5 +22 White DPT’s

Car: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX RS
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - White (5×100×114.3/e22/73)

We posted this Evo not too long ago but since we’ve been posting a lot of Subarus and BMWs for Throwback Thursday, we figured we’d give it some variety.

Jesse had the perfect wheel/tire setup for that extra traction on the track which helped him grab the 2nd overall spot in the Modified AWD class at the Speed Ventures Time Attack series.

Arthur, better known as alcoolaid on the forums, bought his STI back in August of 2007. He started modding it within the first few weeks of owning the car and he found himself running stage 2 in no time. After trying out the car in Auto-X and some track days, the track bug caught Arthur and the rest was history. Arthur has spent countless hours working on his car and we must say that this is one of the most awesome builds we’ve ever seen.

Arthur and some of his friends from APL motorsports recently attended a track day at Pacific Raceways. Matt Kwok took some nice photos at the event and it is a pleasure to have them on our site.

Some action shots.
