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.

weight reduction/differences to standard Evo's:

stripped of all sound deadening material (ouch)
no anti-lock brakes
no high intensity discharge headlamps
no A/C
no stereo
no rear window wiper
no vanity Mirrors
no power windows
no rear wing

it will have the 271 hp, 2.0 liter Turbo charged four and five speed manual that is found in the standard EVO.

the rs gets a helical lsd, and a stiffening crossbar in the trunk, and black Mirrors and door handles.

available in only red and white, around $26,000

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.
