Hello Everyone,
We are Evilla Motorsports. We focus on suspension and exhaust parts for the Kia Automotive Line beginning with the Kia Rio, which we are preparing for the 2015 Race season. We recently with the help of a fellow Forte 5 Member and Pierce Motorsports got a Hold of a Factory Exhaust and will begin to develop some suspension and exhaust parts for the Kia Forte. Looking forward to working with the community and delivering quality parts.
Cheers,
Eli

Thank you for letting us use your Forte! :) April's track day will be very exciting, Our Race Rio will be ready by then, and there will be a good amount of Velosters there to have fun with. I encourage everyone to come even just hang out, it a fun experience well worth having.

The Forte will definitely have some bracing and the torsion bar by then. :) After that it's just a matter of practice. Jim will be instructing at the event, you'll also meet other instructors like Dan English who are wicked drivers. Definitely a fun experience for everyone will to get in a car either driving or passenger.

He is pretty good in just about any car. He has over 30 years in different racing venues from Off-road, Rally, to Road Racing. He can put just about any car sideways in a turn just for fun and straighten it at the end. Overall great car control.

Sweet! Cant wait to help out! Really want to see how this car handles on the track.

Are you guys going to plan for a downpipe for us to?

The car should be fun, especially at Willow Springs where you can floor it.
The downpipe won't be easy because of the shape but we will work on one.
I think the 2012-2014 are different from the 2015 when I saw yours.

Yeah it looks a bit different. Are you getting your koup soon? Would like to see if there is any difference under it. I know the koup is longer so i am wondering if the midpipe or just the mufflers are different

Haha, We will enjoy the Forte :) but we won't gut-it and cage it like the Rio. We started the Rio to make it a full fledged race car for SCCA and Pirelli World Challenge. However we may take the Forte to a few Redline Time Attack events for fun. I figured that's the least we could do. lol
