Shut Up and Take My Money l Chris’ Evo X


Individuality. It is the driving force which fuels car enthusiasts to build cars that not only baffle the media, but also galvanize them into fabricating their own sense of individuality. To which extent will one surpass to secure that individuality? Many cars in the game succumb to a cookie-cutter impression of this concept. With a modest set of wheels and a visual body drop, pretty much any person can say their car is idiosyncratic. Chris’ 2010 Mitsubishi Evo X is anything but average. His Evo X is laded with individuality and character.

When I first met Jovi I immediately recognized him to be the heart of Team Ar-Kan. He owns not 1, not 2, but 3 show cars including this amazing Evo IX featured in modified mag a few years ago. It also recently trophied 1st place in Hot Import Nights “mildly modified” category in show. But hold on a minute here, just look at the picture above, there is nothing “mild” about it! From the custom C-west and Voltex lip combination, agressive track them, and hidden 2-tone white exterior I’m baffled as to how anyone can say car is “mild”.

On a warm peaceful December night I found myself relaxing in front of the television enjoying my dinner. I was on edge as I watched Dexter season 5 anticipating the next murder scene. Then all of a sudden my phone rings and Mikey Dang screams “WAKE UP AT 7:00AM TOMORROW WERE SHOOTING TEAM ARKAN!” Upon ending our phone conversation I was curious as to see who Team är-kªn’ was, I mean the name sounded familiar and as a CXH writer I was a bit embarrassed not to know. I searched online and sure enough I immediately recognized the beautifully fine tuned machines before you. I’m sure you’ve seen them everywhere that I have at shows like Spocom, Autocon, or Extreme Dimensions, but now you get the CarsXHype experience and an in-depth look at what makes these 15 cars so awesome!
