Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV

The Lancer Evo IV was produced from August 1996, with a complete change of platform from the previous Lancer Evolution. Mitsubishi's new Active Yaw Control (AYC) was also unveiled for this new generation. The car comes with a 5 speed manual transmission and a 2.0 L 4G63T I4 Turbocharged engine. The engine generate 280ps, 36.0 kg.m
The AYC will manage the torque applied to the left and right wheel giving the force to change the vehicle’s direction without turning the steering wheel. This active system makes the car safer to drive and turn on wet roads.

The AYC is a huge improvement allowing the car to take a sharper turn at the same speed.
You can enjoy watching some old school videos about this vehicle’s performance. See the links below.
