2010 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO MR Touring Review
MPGomatic.com puts a 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR Touring to a week-long test drive, rolling up over 600 miles. [ Full Review: http://www.mpgomatic.com/2010/08/12/2010-mitsubishi-lancer-evolution-mr-tou ring-review/ ] The 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (EVO) MR Touring is equipped with a 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC turbocharged and intercooled inline four producing 291 horsepower (HP) and 300 foot pounds of torque. The EVO MR Touring is only available with a six-speed twin-clutch TC-SST automatic transmission.
2013 Mitsubishi EVO MR 0-60 MPH
MPGomatic.com takes another stab at the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR. We launch a 2013 Lancer EVO MR with the TC-SST twin-clutch automatic transmission. Lets call these runs somewhere in the 4.6-4.7 range. Could it have been faster? Surely. This was my first two, and *only* two attempts at launching this car. I can't afford to break anything, y'know? :) The 2013 Lancer Evolution MR is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter MIVEC inline four-cylinder engine that produces 291 horsepower engine. I love shifting gears the old fashioned way, but the Twin Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) shifts faster than any manual trans on the planet. Mitsubishi's "Super All-Wheel Control" gets the power to the ground. Launch control to Major Tom. Sub five seconds? No problem. (this time) Test performed with traction control off, in S-Sport mode. Why did the revs hang after the first run? S-Sport mode is designed for the track. I should have upshifted earlier, but was momentarily distracted by some roadside wild life. Better safe then dead.

Buy a Cheap Car from Uncle Sam? Government Auto Auctions (GSA) - Pt I
Looking for a well-maintained low-mile used car at a low price? Maybe something that Fox Mulder or Dana Scully drove in an episode of the X-Files? Your prayers have been answered! The US government unloads over 40000 vehicles per year at the GSA Auto Auctions. You can find all kinds of stuff, from police sedans like Chevy Impalas, Dodge Chargers and Ford Crown Vics, through big SUVs like the Explorers (Scully's current ride) and Tahoes. There are plenty of Malibus, Focus, and Minivans. Loads of pickup trucks from the half-tons (Ford F-150s and Rangers, Chevy Silverados, Dodge Rams and Dakotas) through the heavy-duty stuff. And yeah, lots of big trucks and buses. Uncle Sam has something cheap for everyone! GSA Auctions are held at dozens of locations across America on a monthly basis. These auctions are open to the general public. Anyone can bid. You can find a good deal on a late model government owned used car, many with low mileage. They’re not exciting vehicles, for the most part, although I have seen stuff like Hummers and Mustangs. Prices are pretty good. As a rough estimate, you can figure on the vehicles going for dealer trade-in price. There are caveats, but overall GSA Auctions are one of the best places to buy a cheap car, truck or SUV. The GSA auction events also include odds and ends, but they’re not usually the place where you’ll see expensive and exotic luxury cars, seized from their owners - so, no Lamborghinis, Ferraris, or Bentleys - that’s a topic for a whole ‘nother video.
