Majority... as I stated (not all). Well, the transmission finally stopped failing on them, but he broke the suspension this time (that's not the team's fault or a car failure).

Mitsubishi brought over the Evo before Subaru brought the STi (now STI) here, and they haven't won much since Tommi Makinen won his WRCs from 95-99.

They really brought over the Evo since the WRX is doing so well in sales, and Mitsu figured there's a similar market for their car here. I don't know how that's working out, but I plan on getting an Evo IX MR once I finish this final year of college and start my career. Let's just hope I find a place that will offer me a career start or no Evo IX MR.

If you want an EVO get one soon. It seems as though Mitsu is running on borrowed time right now which is scary. The STi needs the EVO to push it even further and vice cersa. Ford kind of lost sight with the Mustang after Chevy stopped producing the Camaro so I don't want the same thing to happen here.

Yeah, I've read that Mitsu is on the verge of bankruptcy, and not to mention if they do survive that long, they're going to revise the Evo into a whole different sort of car. That's why I'm hoping when I graduate, I'll be set up with a career to be able to afford a IX MR. If they do go under without being bought out, I bet you those cars will become collectors here in the U.S.

Ford is ahead of Subaru and Mitsubishi (especially the latter), thanks to the consistent finishes. In the manufacturer standings it's usually 2nd or 3rd... behind the French.

Maybe it'll be pushing first next year, but I think Subaru has a good car under them along with Mitsubishi. The latter just needs good drivers, but I think they'll slowly climb up the ranks again.
