There is an Evo RS coming out, it has the same hp/torque stats as the Evo 8, but weighs around 150lbs less then the Evo 8.

As for the Evo MR,

The MR (Mitsubishi Racing) version of the EVO VIII is a Japanese-model only and is not offered for sale in the United States. The MR package includes:

* Quicker Response Bilstein Dampers
* Forged Aluminum Wheels
* Aluminum Roof Panel
* Improved 4WD system, ADC, & Super AYC Traction Control
* Sport ABS
* Improved Engine Torque Curve
* Improved Control at High Speed Limits
* Lowered Center of Gravity
* Refined Neutral Roll Characteristics

Lancer Evolution VIII MR uses slick-response Bilstein shocks for improved handling. The aluminum roof panel and other reductions in body weight have lowered the center of gravity to realize more natural roll characteristics. Detail improvements have also been made to Mitsubishis own electronic all-wheel drive, to the ACD 5 + Super AYC 6 traction control and to the Sports ABS systems. The Lancer Evolution VIII displayed at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show took the MR designation traditionally reserved for Mitsubishi Motors high-performance models and used first on the Galant GTO.


The EVO MR has a 6-speed transmission, unlike the Evo 8's 5-speed.

I love it. Skid pad increase from .88 to .98. Same HP I believe but 295 TQ from a better Turbo. For $33,000 dollars that's amazing. I heard strong rumors of it coming to the states sometime maybe 2006.

Yep, your definatly right on those reductions. I dont think i'd be into getting the RS unless all I wanted to do was race it.
