ROUGH RIDE

It’s about time my hard-driven Evo IX had a suspension refresh. So we called on a wizard: Robi Spec

After four years of being rode hard and put away damp, this Mitsu’s OEM suspension components were tuckered. Symptoms included an extreme case of body roll and a tendency to push headfirst through corners. The tapped-out Bilstein shocks, lamer than a Yanni concert, were incapable of lifting the inner wheel mid-turn—a characteristic Evos are notorious for. To find a solution, we called on Robi Spec Race Suspensions of Hesperia, California. Owner Robert Fuller is a wizard in the dark art of suspension tuning; he’s prepped countless winning time-attack machines. With his work cut out for him, Robi took my Evo under the knife. The result? Maximum-adhesion cornering!
