Not sure about the "Vortex Generators"
They look like something to keep birds away.


Interesting bit about the SST -

No Magic for the Transmission
Mitsubishi is still a bit hesitant about the ultimate capability of the Evo X's Getrag-built dual-clutch transmission, known as the SST (Sport Shift Transmission). In theory, this automated manual transmission will handle more torque than the 300 lb-ft of twist produced by the Evo X's standard engine, yet Mitsubishi is still reluctant to test its ultimate capacity before reliability and durability have been tested by the standard Evo X.

As a result, the FQ-360 comes equipped with a sturdy five-speed manual transmission. "We'd like to do an FQ-360 with an SST gearbox," Brigden says, "but we'd need to do a lot of durability testing to prove its capability." In other words, it's not happening yet, but don't rule it out.

I feel that you might be trying to bash the SST before it has even been tried. Everrrry report on the SST to date has only talked about how good it is.... this one kinda just made jabs for the sake of making jabs.

Dude no one is jabbing at the SST. Stop :deadhorse: The article simply stated that they haven't tested its durability yet.
