Default TMR Evolution X Bathurst Edition and Club Spec


Quote:
Team Mitsubishi Ralliart in Australia has released a special edition Evo X Bathurst Edition to commemorate the victory of a Lancer Evolution in the 12h race at Mount Panorama. It has a premium of $ 8,250 over the base model Evolution X. TMR added a high flow exhaust, good injectors, intake, and ECU reflash to bump the power up to 330HP and 321 lb-ft of torque. The Bathurst Edition has been lowered thanks to 30mm shorter springs that improve handling. The 18-inch rims are black powder coated and there are cool TMR Bathurst Edition emblems on the front and rear of the car.
This is a package that can be installed on any Mitsubishi Evolution X 5-speed manual or SST. Only100 models of the Evo will be built by Alan Heaphy and his TMR Performance team making it a sure collector’s item. With the car you get a certificate of authenticity from the TMR and the Mitsubishi warranty remains in tact.
TMR EVO X Club Spec

TMR Evo X Club Spec

For an even sportier experience you can purchase a special TMR Club Spec Evo X. This will cost you $16,500 on top of the price for a new Evolution X. Power output for the Club Spec Evo comes mainly from an ECU tune which nets a total of 362 HP from the engine. The chassis has been extensively modified in order to meet specific track racing specs. The suspension features high-performance Eibach springs to enhance handling and lower the center of gravity. The brakes are AP Racing Group N spec with upgraded competition brake pads but the Brembo calipers remain standard. There is a built-in roll cage along with a 6-point safety harness to keep the driver planted in the corners.
TMR EVO X SST Club Spec Prices
  • Bolt-in Roll Cage $4,400
  • TMR Lowered Progressive rate springs - front and rear $679.80
  • TMR 270kw ECU Upgrade $2,750
  • TMR Enhanced exhaust $880
  • Competition Brake Pads $860
  • 6-Point safety harness X $1,100
  • Modification to front seats for 6-Point harness crutch strap $330
  • Fire Extinguishers x 2 $200
  • Foglight Delete Kit $207.45

Pretty damn awesome way to send her off though. After having owned a Subaru, I've created a certain affection for the Evo, I think I'd like to buy a GSR X some day.

It's nice indeed, but you can have far more performane for far less money in the aftermarket. We're really spoiled to have such an abundance of aftermarket and tuning options with Evos and Subarus. The knowledge base is there, what parts are tried and tested. Basically, the blueprints to building a great handling, fast, reliable car are out there.

Sweet Jeebus, for $8000, you could build a monster EVO.

330hp?

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The U.S. needs more special interest editions for its performance enthusiests. Its sad how many we get compared to Japan.

Agreed. A good tune and pipe will get you 70 (bringing it to 360 ish). A good TBE, intake, headers, injectors, fuel rails and FMIC could cost around 8K but you should be over 400 at the wheels..

For the rest of the 16K, you could get a good suspension instead of springs. Ohlins for 3.2K, rear sway, roll center and bumpsteer kit...should be under 5K installed. You have 3K left for wheel and tire upgrade....DONE.

Right, but they need to be logical when doing it. Not like the idiots who threw this one together...

Mitsu: Lets buy parts at retail value, install them, and sell it for a profit to the consumer... They can't possibly be smart enough to think this isn't a good deal on raw parts+install.

This is definitely outrageously priced, but people have to realize that it is "factory" parts when it offered by the manufacturer and also are under warranted.

Everyone knows factory parts costs $$$. Also, something installed and offered by the factory has to be R&Ded to not have issues, typical with aftermarket parts (fitment, rattling..etc).

Also to point out. Manufacturers use engineering to formulate and test the most suitable setup for their performance target. Not like how people throw parts into a car using the idea of; "i heard this brand is the best, it must be the best for the car", or "lets turn the boost way up for mo' powaa"

If this has good injectors, what does my Evo X have? A carburetor?

A conservative Cobb off-the-shelf tune with NO other mods gets you more than 330hp.

WTF are the "good injectors" for?

Exactly. And while aftermarket tunes do yield more hp and torque than optional tunes from the factory as some people have pointed out, remember that aftermarket tunes are custom-tailored to that exact vehicle, while factory tunes, whether the standard one or an optional upgrade, have to take a variety of things into account (i.e. varying elevations, temperatures, fuel quality) that hold companies back from tuning cars to their highest potential like local tuners can.

However, I'm not sure if warranties play a big role with these variants. I'm not sure how it is in Australia, but the Ralliart UK packages that we've all grown familiar with (like the FQ-400) don't have the same Mitsubishi warranties, though I think they do get 12-month/12,000-mile warranties since it's an authorized tuner kit, kind of like how getting a TRD supercharger on a Toyota only gets that kind of a warranty rather than the factory one. I would assume that Ralliart Australia may have similar guidelines, as Prodrive does for their Subaru packages.

I see people are making fun of this based on just this article, which probably does not represent the actual product. The author is not doing a good job of describing the offering, yet people quote on "good injectors" like if Mitsubishi actually said something like that. With so much education these days, are people still believing everything they read?

Too much money. Skip the Bathurst Edition or whatever you call it, drop some aftermarket kits, and conjure up your own special edition name.

A lot of stuff costs more there, given how far stuff has to travel to be shipped there and in smaller quantities than stuff coming here. Go on GT-R forums and see how much the Aussies pay for those.

I didn't say it wasn't, I just said stuff still travels quite a distance but the shipments are far smaller in quantity compared to what they ship here.

It's called "taxes" - lol. Brand New cars are cheaper in the US compared to anywhere else.

It's even cheaper to buy an EVO, or an STI in the US compared to Japan (and they don't have to ship it anywhere).

Neat. But take a stock Evo X plus $8k to AMS and you will have a completely different animal.
