For those of you new to the Autotest concept, it is a timed race on a small track usually defined by cones, which focuses on car control at low to average speeds. Opponents go head to head on mirror tracks, with the fastest of 2 rounds winning the race.

At the single turn of a key, the inanimate masterpiece of technical engineering sparks to life. 1 turbo, 2 camshafts, 4 pistons, 16 valves and thousands more moving parts initiate a flawlessly synchronised infernal dance.
This is Jeremy's Evo IX. His own interpretation of how the famous AWD platform should be done up.
Jeremy's past ownerships are enough to make any motorhead envious. Starting with a stroked up EG6, he moved on to an EG9, also stroked up to 1.8L. Following this he decided to stay away from stroker kits and turbocharged his 3rd Civic. Upgrading from the Civic, he got his hands on a DC2 before going the AWD way with a stroked-up 2.6L WRX Cockeye.
Jeremy is now topping his list with this gorgeous looking Evo IX, and he got to work on it, applying the same care and passion as he did with his previous rides.

Unfortunately this combination of positive attributes has inevitably resulted in the Saxo becoming a stereotypical favourite for 17 year old boy racers all over the UK, giving it a somewhat negative image in the eyes of many.
Fortunately Adam couldn’t care less about the impression his baby leaves; having owned her since 2009 he knows that she’s just far too fun to get caught up in car culture politics and is proving that the Saxo can be just as much a grown up beast as anything!

It's always hard to decide when to stop building a car. Many of you out there will agree that once you go down the car modding road, it's hard to stop. Very hard.
There's always something more to do. "One last mod" before calling it a wrap. Even when you're on a budget, you always find spare change under the mattress for that last little addition to the already stretched parts list of your project car.
Ryan is one of the rare exceptions to that rule. Being on a tight budget, he is a man who plans twice and executes once. And when he does, the result is eye catching.
