Redeye,
Why dont u develope ur lancer on EVO concept as u want Red theme.Thats the strongest racing pedigree a lancer has.My Lancer is also developed the same way.Good luck and post some pics once ur car is ready.

I am not sure if you are going to take my suggestion but i sincerely feel, instead of going for a custom body kit, get the original SFX Kit, it looks sweet. Spoiler and all is ok.
Get some hot alloys and trust me, the car will look sweet. Simple yet graceful.
With a custom paint job, it will definitely stand out.

I second that opinion about having a body kitted Lancer.

Check out my ride. It exemplifies what Amey & MF are talking about. Mind you, I went a little beyond the regular SFX kit. Front & side skirts are SFX, rear skirt (full) is custom and the front bumper has been redesigned a bit.
Looks pretty nice if I may say so
If you like the bolder EVO style, go for it. I wanted to keep things simple.

Default hi

Hi,

Wish you all the best for your project. Since you want red on your car I have a red sfx. Posted pics. Thought you might find it useful. Got 205/50 yokos with platis on it. Sweet but hot is how I would describe my ride.

Cheers

I'd say this looks neat. A good red paintjob with the kit in this pic. My advice would be to keep it all red (the hood, roof and trunk could be black). Avoid the blue and white stripes... sorta reminds me of a British flag!

i would suggest leaveing it one colour. the charm will be lost with a number of colours involved. you could if you want, throw in a graffic through the sides. best place to have a look is need for speed on PSP or PS2 for designs . i would leave it plain in one colour nothing else.
