    Hey guys, just showing off some pictures of these fine machines. Went for a nice long cruise with Sean (speedstick) and another local guy Shayne today and pulled over a couple times to get a few shots. Hope you enjoy!

    Sorry I wasn't available to class things up with some Mitsubishi action, but looks like you guys had a good time anyway ;)

    Haha for sure! Put some winding roads to the test, and scared a few sunday drivers :p

    Aaron you're more than welcome to come next time. We could use someone slower in front to keep us under control :D (jk)

    Haha, you might be joking but that's an accurate statement! Evo could have another 100 hp and I'd still drive slower than you I think :p

    Haha fair enough! Speeding is definitely something of a forbidden fruit for me.

    Nice! How is the road selection on the east coast? Lots of good driving roads?

    Speedstick, any plans to update the wheels on the Chaser any time soon?

    I actually haven't lived in any other province other than NS so I can't really compare these roads to anywhere else, but what I will say is that there is some amazing scenery along the coast, and definitely quite a few nice roads as well.

    the roads here are pretty awesome as they aren't straight. really nice scenery. Also, still have no intention of upgrading my wheels. It would be nice but that also means suspension which also makes the vehicles practically decrease.

    Not necessarily. If you run coilovers that are more on the soft/comfort side and don't have the car shit-slammed, you likely wouldn't notice a difference in terms of practicality/driveability.
    Come to think of it, Soren has some Apexi WS coils up in the marketplace which would be perfect..*nudge nudge* ;)

    Looks like it was a beautiful drive guys, wish we had more scenery like that here.

    Strut bars and braces...
    I don't know about kts . But cusco is awesome...

    If that's not enough try harder springs..
    If your shy about full coil overs.
