I want to tell you a few details about our Mitsubishi I (in drift jargon "microwave"), in which Maxim won the 5th drift stage in Krasnoyarsk. The idea of ​​building a car appeared immediately after the performance at the Toyota Starlet, where about 100 kg had to be added to the light car for good dynamics on the track. In Mitsubishi I, the engine from the factory is located at the back, so the idea was to make a light car that would not have to be loaded, thereby saving the weight gained about 840 kg. The car was bought on January 23, 2019, and the first successful combat tests took place on February 7 on the ice of the sea, in total, it took 15 days to build. This is 3-4 days more than planned, since the K3-VET engine with manual transmission stock was swapped initially,but when, on the day of qualification, our Toyota Starlet cut off the gear (it cut off the gear on the Starlet for the second time at the Forwardavto Zimkhan stage, so the issue with the manual transmission on the Starlet is open), it was decided to install another engine with a reliable manual transmission, the choice fell on the 4G15T from MMC Colt Ralliart - this is a turbo engine 1.5L 160 HP, with a strong Getrag in stock. Although the new version of the engine together with the box is about 50 kg heavier, but all this is placed on the rear axle, so this is only a plus for the dynamics. The front suspension was supplied from Nissan, it turned out to be a good inversion :)but all this is placed on the rear axle, so this is only a plus for the dynamics. The front suspension was supplied from Nissan, it turned out to be a good inversion :)but all this is placed on the rear axle, so this is only a plus for the dynamics.

For the most curious, the cost of the parts was calculated:

Mitsubishi I body - 195000

Engine with mounted 4G15T - 25000

manual transmission Getrag Ralliart - 23000

Clutch ceramic - 15000

AJS handbrake - 8500

Nissan suspension - 10000

R14

wheels - 12000 Hakkapelita 8 tires - 16400

Wheel spacers - 18000

Steering wheel - 5000

Drives - 5000

Battery - 7000

Polycarbonate - 3000

Various parts from the team - 10000

Fenders - 7000

Work - priceless

Total cost from 359900

And if you sell a stock engine, automatic, R15 wheels, interior, you can still return about 70,000 rubles :)

Many have a question about tires at the stage. The tire was Nokian Hakka 8, 33rd week of 2018 release, standard spike, no glue, no sealant, no backing. "Rolled-in" is absolutely the same as other pilots do in Krasnoyarsk, we did not come up with this "rolling-in", but spied on others. On the Michelin bus the car is even faster, the maximum setting speed was 104 km / h, on the Hakka the maximum was 102 km / h, and usually 98 km / h. If we take a Zhiguli for comparison, the fastest was 95 km / h for Zhenya Losev. The speed was measured by radar. It is clear that when a lot of effort and money has been invested in the Zhiguli over the years of preparation, it is difficult for some to recognize a fast car made in two weeks. Therefore, if Mistubishi I is banned by the regulations in Krasnoyarsk, as a rear-engined car or as a foreign car, then this will be an admission that it is much faster than a Lada. If not forbidden,then we'll see how it goes in 2020, where everyone will be given the same tire without rolling.
