Brutally stiff suspension
A long straight highway drive on America’s crumbling infrastructure is the exact opposite of what an Evo should be used for. And yet that’s just the situation I found myself in, flying to Milwaukee and then driving an hour and a half to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis. for the annual Midwest Automotive Media Association Spring Rally.
Not a half-hour in and I was thinking this awesome present left for me at the airport was more of a cruel trick. With racecar-like handling going unused on the long and straight highway, I43 North certainly made it feel like a race car’s suspension. The constant jolts didn’t just rattle the rearview mirror, on particularly poor stretches of road it actually became hard to focus.
