Smile Evo VI RS - Sprint / Hillclimb / Time Attack? build

This car is not new to the MLR but she is new to me.
Previously owned by Mat @ MG Auto Motorsport and used as MG's sprint car, then up until recently TomCI. I think it's fair to say both owners have had a fair amount of input in making this car what it is - much credit is owed MG Auto Motorsport, NR Autosport and Tom for all the hard work that has gone in to this car. I also have to say a big thank you to Tom for being a true gent with the sale which wasn't the most straightforward but we got there with it! Cheers mate.

Having owned an evo since 2007 I'm not new to them. Technically this car is my 4th although the last one I bought was just a shell. The car before it being my 5RS which I still have but it's time to draw a line under that build now (thank **** for that I hear you cry!).

So here's where I pick up the batton and this post marks the start of my new project/build thread.

I thought I would put a video together made from images I've gathered on the 6RS - I hope Mat and Tom are cool for me to use these images - if not just give me a nudge.


The usual suspects will be involved with this build; those being MG Auto Motorsports for the build itself, Ross Sport for parts and Electronic Performance Motorsports for mapping etc.

Like my last build I'll be in no rush with it but please keep checking in for updates and I hope you enjoy the thread.

Cheers,

Karl

Hi Clive - I would love to but unfortunately I can only afford to keep hold of one. The plan is to transfer some key parts off the 5RS into/onto the 6RS. The 5RS will be toned down and put up for sale soon.

Oh, ok, what advantages are there to moving to the 6 from the 5 considering the amount of work carried out to your 5RS?

It's an absolute pleasure to see the car going to someone who will put the time and effort into it Karl and hope she treats you well.

Thanks for being so understanding regarding the delays in getting it over to you too. I never thought it could be such a mammoth task getting a car to the UK!

I'd like to use the car for track days, sprints and maybe a some hill climbs. What I would really like to have a dabble at would be Time Attack but I would need to come in to some money / find the right sponsors to take it on.

The main reason I bought the car is because of the work that has gone in to the shell. I was going to put a cage in mine / the shell I bought but this 6RS ticked the boxes. Like with most things evo related it usually works out cheaper in the long run buying one already done and I like what has been done, the parties involved, the parts used and the condition of it now. It just made sense.

I bought the 6RS without Toms engine, turbo kit, intercooler, ecu, or wheels. So parts coming off the 5RS to go on the 6RS not surprisingly include, the engine, turbo kit, intercooler kit, MoTeC, Nitrons, wheels etc.

Thanks Tom - I will look after her for sure.

No problem mate - considering the logistics of getting the parts off the car and having it transport from yours to MG I think it went very smoothly all things considered. You can't rush these things and you've been a pleasure to buy from.

Ah, I totally understand, that's definitely the best way to do it, looks like you got an excellent base car, good luck with the build.
