    As much as we all love the active areo, tunnable exhaust, 4 wheel steering and djustable suspension, it was ultimately more damaging for performance that it was benificial. To give you an idea how good this car was without all of that, in 1994 they offered an MR model (Mistubishi Racing). It had none of the extra features, just the standard twin turbo setup and the new 6 speed that came with the normal VR-4 for the 1994 model year. Best Motoring, the Japanese TV show, raced it against and R32 GT-R and it beat it. The GT-R was a bit faster on the launch, probably due to the weight but in the straights the GTO just flies past it. I will note that they put a GTO-MR against a GTO and it clearly says GTO-MR, but against the GT-R it just says GTO so i assume this is and MR but i can't tell for certain. Video On a side note, keep watching the video past that time stamp and they put a gen 2 MR2 against an NSX and holy crap does the MR2 smoke it off the line, in the straights the NSX has to fight a bit but it takes it, but still the acceleration on the little Toyota is impressive, put a bit bigger of a turbo on it and you've got a weapon. For those interested the race before the GTO vs GT-R was a Mk 4 Supra and FD RX7 if you want to check that out, basically their racing all the gods against each other.

    The speed on that Supra though, damn what a good car, even in stock form. In the full track race it even beats the non R NSX before it dies. Not to mention the RX7, also passing the non R NSX.

    Results on a small track:
    Name Time Speed across the line (Km/h)
    NSX-R 1,30,802 263.736
    RX7 1,31,061 258.992
    Supra 1,31,509 269.662
    GTO 1,32,578 260.869
    GT-R 1,32,704 257.142
    NSX 1,33,499 254.327
    MR2 1,33,532 244.191
    EVO 1,39,791 233.009

    Yeah this car wasn't the favorite choice even in countries that got the Supra and Skyline GTR. Because of cars major flour. The east to west engine layout. Instead of the north to south. That the other cars had. That's why this car was heavy. And harder and more expensive to modify. And it was alot heavier in the front too. Which made the car understeer alot. Which was a shame as it was a good looking machine.

    I grew in a place were these were gray imports!!! Every time I saw one of the streets in freaking red color my jaw will hit the floor!!!! I meant you see the red Eclipse with the bulbous hood and we said....that's cool but then a freaking VR4 will go by and that was another freaking level!!!! So sad Mitsu went from being a cool brand to that sad SUV manufacturer with Chinese feeling!!!!

    My mom had a 97 model. Last year they made them. We drove it to Colorado like 4 times from TN and everybody would drool over this car. We didn’t truly understand what we had when we had it. We knew it would literally fly and when she sold it for $19,000 I cried and cried I just “knew” this car was gonna be mine when I turned 16. Boy I was wrong..

    I just recently bought a 92 Dodge Stealth Twin Turbo. It's in really great shape and I am loving the car. It's a bitch to work on and service is expensive but it was basically a steal at $5,400.

    I hate crossover, I hate Suv I hate the fucking city car, bring back the old cool sports car. I am Italian and we were the number one in making sport car, and look now. Fiat only makes City car, Crossover or Suv, Lancia is completely gone. Alfa Romeo does something but is not enough.

    I drove a vr4 when I owned a 05’ Sti. The vr4 felt hella slow

    • Sovietkitty
      Sovietkitty Month ago

      That’s quite surprising, 0-60 times are near identical and the vr4 is a bit faster stock for stock in the quarter. Was anything done to your sti and or the vr4? They (vr4’s) can make around 600 wheel with turbos and supporting fuel on stock internals

    Fcuking hell! If you keep telling like this I cannot watch your excellent content. STOP YELLING CONSTANTLY! A one off bit is funny within an informative video but 15 minutes of obnoxiously loud irony and the same der der humer is tiresome. Please. You're ruining your own content. I would have yelled all of that but that would be annoying :)

    Mitsubishi made the infamous A6M or Zero fighter plane in double u double u 2 that was faster and way more maneuverable than American planes. They’ve been around awhile and know how to make things fast.

    My dads first car was the 3000GT and he would race it. He said he had no reason to have that as his first car, but he’s glad he did. Till he hit a truck going 140miles an hour and cut the truck in half pretty much and kept going, it caught a leak in it and when he went to race again it started knocking and he knew it was a goner, so he took it to the scrap yard and wanted to hear it one more time and when he crank it up it one last time it shot a rod through it.
