A turbocharged 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, converted to flex-fuel, doing 0-60 MPH in three seconds.
This is my brother-in-law in the video, and it's his car. I can't answer any questions about the video, and I know nothing about vehicle performance. But I found the idea of ethanol as a high performance fuel very interesting.
Some people have asked about why it's sputtering. It was poorly tuned at the moment.
Thanks for all the comments and the views. I really didn't expect this to get 15,000 views.
