Organised by Mitsubishi’s distributor Cycle and Carriage, the Mitsubishi Extreme Drive gave its 200 participants a hands on experience on performing stunts such as ramp to ramp jumps, 360 spins ,j-turns and slip and slide on their showcased Ralliart Lancer Ex , Evo X and Colt R!
For three solid days , instructors Ivan Lim, Kevin Flynn, Danny, CK , Cheaka and I, brought togather by Pit Crew, had a whale of a time pushing these cars to the limit while teaching the participants how the stunts are performed(. Ivan and I took the J-turn, Cheaka the 360 spin , CK the slip and slide while Danny and Kevin did the ramp jump). I got a bad bout of motion sickness on the first day but got over it the following days. Ivan and I calculated that we sat through over 800 J turns combined ( 1 demo + 3 tries x over 200 participants). Cheaka went through almost the same numbers too but one thing that we all looked forward to was the Hot Laps that happens at the end of each session. We were each given a car to taxi the participants through a given course. I had a hand on the Evo X (manual and TC-SSC) and the Ralliart Lancer Ex( TC-SSC) and was pleasantly surprised that I preferred the TC-SSC over the manual. The shifts were seamless upwards and downwards, so much so that ,when I had the Ralliart Lancer Ex during the Hot Laps , I left it on full auto and was so much faster than Ivan who was in a manual EVO X!!
