Evo Trippin’

Make: Mitsubishi
Model: Evolution
Year: 2005

Why or when do you find yourself driving slow?
I find myself driving slow when cops are out in force, when
I take the kids to school in the morning, and when the crew
(Yucki Racing) is out for a weekend cruise.

Tell us a little about yourself and your EVO.
I’m a girl that loves my car. I hate when guys don’t think I know
what I am talking about just because of my gender or when I am on the car
forums and everyone assumes I am a male. I have been into Mitsubishi’s for
the last 10 years. I finished out 2011 being number 13 on the EvoluitonM.net
list for the top 20 fastest MPH’s in the 1/4 mile stock turbo, 118.84.
The last time this car saw the dyno it put down 333 AWHP
and 274 tq on 23psi.

Special Thanks
I want to thank Emery, Shawna, and all my friends
at StreetTuned Motorsports (STMtuned.com) for all the kick ass parts. The
guys at Yucki Racing (Yuckiracing.com) that help keep me motivated. Cody
Ringer at MRXPhotography for all the awesome photos and videos he does for
me. Automotive Tekniques (SCautoteks.com) for the shop space when I need a
lift! And last but not least my husband and tuner Nick, Yucki, without him
I nor my car would be what we are! Thank you for teaching me the things
that I know and for being supportive even when I’m a bia! I love you hunny!

Future plans
Change to a Exedy twin disk clutch and a Buschur exhaust,
but mainly to get back on the top 20 list on Evolutionm.net for the fastest
stock turbo cars in 2012 for 1/4 Best ET and Fastest MPH!
