Magnus Motorsports Evo VII-IX CT9A Front Subframe
As the Mitsubishi Evolution CT9A platform continues to get faster and faster, we are all demanding more from the chassis. As the level continues to reach a new peak, we continue to create new products to solve known & arising problems that come with making more power, increased G forces and huge gains in overall speed.
We revised our original subframe design to make it stronger and more suited to all forms of motorsport and street cars.
The DSM Shootout has definitely outgrown the little “Drunk’N’Drag” get together for some DSM enthusiasts that was fulfilled with some sweet 12second cars and drunken stories. It really puts a smile on our face to see that The Shootout has grown to an almost 10,000 attendee event. Yet another great shootout has gone by and the race to next year’s event has begun. Seeing this year’s achievements for both driver’s and event attendance has left us with nothing but an imagination of how great next year’s Shootout will be.
We had decided to approach this year’s shootout quiet differently, the usual let’s slap the motor together, tune the car and throw it in the trailer approach was thrown aside. We had chosen to build some wondering and confusion for those attending by doing something never done before, and posting teasers of our car on the “interwebs”. Marco had come up with a crazy idea of doing a Cantilever set up in the rear end that had even the employee’s scratching their heads. Before we knew it we were cutting up the suspension and looking for a way for this to work. Therefore the shootout was more of a test and tune for us than a racing competition.
Our reason for leaving the traditional rear end set all started with a simple decision to upgrade to a 3000GT rear end…… Well simple was clearly an understatement, the new objective was to add a bigger tire and run a true drag shock. Our goal wasn’t to fab everything up and throw it in the car for some street cred. The objective was to improve traction and make the car go straight.
We could not be any more satisfied with the outcome of the cantilever set up we had come up with here at the Magnus Minion Headquarters! Everything went as planned and the car did exactly what we had intended on.
Our good friend Gary Andr brought out his RWD 1G build and broke quiet a few necks with it. Although the car was not race ready, it was one hell of a teaser for everyone of what’s to come!
We would also like to congratulate our friend Mike with trapping at 158mph at the shootout , and most importantly thank him for all his help and support year round. We would also like to thank our friends John Wigger, Gary Andr, Nathan Samuels from Apex Motoring, & Mike Andolsun for all their help throughout the weekend!
Correct Camshaft Control = More Power
First used and tested in our Famous EVO X build to reach 1000 hp consistently and safely.
The catastrophic failures tied to MIVEC when upgrading the cams and valves springs has been a known issue for many years. Shortly after the issue arose we had come up with a solution. Higher engine acceleration rates cause the PID of the camshaft control to be unable to operate within its limits. Adding larger turbo’s that spool up above 4500 RPM negate advantages of having MIVEC control. Deleting the MIVEC altogether gave us consistent camshaft control. Locking the cam gears in place results in smoother power delivery as the ECU is not constantly trying to readjust for camshaft error. Consistent high rpm tuning and camshaft adjustability result in being able to dial in your power band more effectively.

When upgrading to larger camshafts and stiffer valve springs, the original exhaust MIVEC cam gear is prone to failure. We highly recommend replacing one or both.
- Consistent high RPM tuning
- Ability to position camshafts at correct lobe centers for increased power
- No more broken camshafts
- No more broken cam gears
- No more failures affiliated with MIVEC
