I want to do the Evo triangle at some point in my Mitsubishi yob mobile (which is also red!), I'll bring a tow rope. You already have towing eyes in place with a Cup, so problem solved!

That's a good point actually, maybe I'll persuade the girlfriend to convoy with me rather than ride along, as she also has a Mitubishi yob mobile! (of the Evo 9 MR FQ360 flavour). Otherwise I'm sure we'll get there and I'll start hearing about how she wish she'd brought her car along!!

 

Diego, that S1 looks incredible!!

Nope, sorry, still looks shite Arun. What where you thinking of? Really?

Yes, I'm jealous. Not green with envy but canyon red, flaming red, jealous. That just looks absolutely the mutts nuts. Congratulations Sir. Excellent choice. Exquisite taste. Please, no more pictures, they are killing me! :)

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Still very very fond of your car, Arun.

How did they go about finding the perfect spot for placing the canards ? Have they "guessed" or have they used a template of some sort ?

I assumed the kit comes with a template. It certainly looks in exactly the same place as every CupR photo I can see on Google.

Or more to do with slicing the rear bumper of the GT3RS that was slowing it down :)

I fully intend on writing my thoughts on the car as the journey continues.

First thoughts...I'm pretty sure the Nitrons are some form of witchcraft. Hardly any more harsh on standard settings on the road than the race pack Bilsteins, but so much more controlled coming out of big compressions. Beautifully composed. 

Having come from a Premium pack V6S with extended carpets, NVH and leather dash, the Cup feels appropriately raw. There are very obvious rattles and creaks, some from behind me, and some from behind the pasenger airbag cover, but I don't really care at the moment. The whole thing feels much more of an experience. Exhaust note is louder in the cabin to the extent that i've closed the valve at motorway speed as it's that much more boomy, and there's a more pronounced 'whoosh' through the intake system as you blip the throttle, such is the lack of sound insulation. Quick-release momo wheel and boss is gorgeous, really well suited to the car. Already I've hand an inkling that the Cup doesn't quite have the nose-led setup of the standard V6S, and once I'm able to push on, it's really going to feel alive and adjustable.

Oh and the interior, the contrast red stitching (in lieu of the standard silver on the Cups) really goes well with the body colour bits of the doors, and finishes the car off perfectly. Reallyhappy with how that turned out, as with the colour-coded A-frame, that does a great job of filling your rear view.

M-bloody-arvellous
