Justin B has been a long time customer of ModBargains – watching us grow from our early days as a small facility into the badass shop we have today, and recently we had the opportunity to snap some photos of his badass widened Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX when he stopped by for our Mod Nights meet to unveil the #STAYCRUSHING FR-S after having all the carbon-fiber bodywork completed. We’ve done a few things to the car here and there, including the set of custom Forgestar F14 Wheels for Evo IX the car rolls on, but we hadn’t seen it since the carbon
The massive ETS intercooler fills out the front bumper’s openings completely, giving the car even more street cred.
Lined up amongst other awesome modified cars, Justin’s Evo is perfectly at home. The Carbon Fiber fenders do a great job of blending in with the car’s natural carbon gray paint job, making it both stealthy and aggressive all at once.
The ride is by no means stock either, sporting TEIN Flex Coilovers on all four corners with Cusco rear struts, allowing the sharpest Evo of them all to be even more scalpel-like in the twisty bits.
The factory brakes, which already stop hard enough to induce whiplash, have been upgraded further with a set of R1 Concepts Slotted Rotors. Slotted rotors both help provide a way for hot brake exhaust gases to escape as well as acting as a scrubber to keep wiping debris away as you apply the brake.
It’s always fun when Justin stops by for the latest round of mods and great to see what clever thing he’s got in store next.
Huge shoutout to Justin for choosing us as his shop of choice and for supporting us as we’ve grown into what we are today. Thanks for reading, and we hope you enjoyed the photos!
