Our Evo saw its share of track time, and, naturally, that's when we really loved our yellow screamer. "At Grattan Raceway, the Evo was as wonderful and in its element as it had ever been," noted one of our hotfooted staffers. "The brakes are great, and the car easily rotates." (The cheaper and lighter Evo RS, a real stripper, is even more of a blast on a track.) After a summer and fall of high-spirited track days and some rigorous road use, however, the Evo surrendered its brake pads at 20,287 miles, which cost us $706.23. We also had detected a grinding noise in the gearbox when shifting into fifth gear, so the synchro was replaced under warranty.
