Mitsubishi just happened to have an Evo IX on hand for comparison purposes. It's worth mentioning that, though the Evo IX is the road-going racing car, those 331 extra pounds went into making the new car a bona fide daily driver. Getting into the Evo IX after driving the Evo X was like belting into a time attack car.
|1. Acceleration |
|ACD and ASC control the drive force |
and brake force to balance acceleration
and road conditions. Powerful offthe-
line acceleration is generated by
superior control of wheel slippage.
|2. Braking ||ACD and ABS maximize the effect of braking |
force from all four wheels. The systems provide
stable, controllable braking and quicker stops
while preventing the wheels from locking up.
|3. Entering corner ||AYC brings cornering performance in line |
with steering inputs. Even with ABS engaged,
AYC controls the yaw moment to deliver
intuitive, follow-the-line cornering.
|4. Pulling out |
|ACD and AYC maximize torque |
on each wheel. By enhancing
both cornering and traction
performance, the system
allows more aggressive
acceleration out of corners.
|5. Understeer ||AYC and ASC work together, |
maximizing torque and
brake force to keep the
vehicle under control.
|6. Oversteer ||In emergency situations such |
as spins, ACD’s superior
vehicle control, plus AYC and
ASC, assist the driver to safely
execute recovery maneuvers.
|S-AWC Mode ||Function |
|Tarmac ||Weakens ACD control bias, strengthens AYC distribution |
|Gravel ||Boosts ACD control bias, AYC effect is weakened for stability |
|Snow ||Further boosts ACD and weakens AYC |
