What you're thinking for Mitsubishi Chanc eEG was the MIVEC system. That was much later after VTEC was perfected.

Dejoe filed & registered the first patent in the 1920s (for automotive applications) At the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office
https://www.google.com/patents/US1527456

In 1958 Porsche was the 1st automotive company to attempt to mass produce a type of VVT system
Fiat was the 1st to successful integrate it on a mass production scale using a hydraulic solenoid like Honda used in 1989-2001 - (US Patent 3,641,988 )
Alfa Romeo was the 1st company to use VVT in a fuel injected system (1980 Alfa Romeo Spider - US Patent 4,231,330 )
Honda in 1989 was the most successful in its use since it was the only company to use a 2-stage cam lobe system -

Icon5 What is this?

Any ideas as to what that is on the driver side, near the fog light?

I was thinking this too when someone was bringing up the weight. I haven't seen a subie or focus beat its time on the nurburgring, only the VW was able to beat it.

Drag races..........no longer really interest me although it does take skill to launch properly but the track is where the action is at.

If this handles as well as the FK2 2015 Euro CTR I've driven then you will be blown away by this car. The engine in my opinion is less impressive than the handling, but considering the handling that's not a negative comment.

My impression is the very same. I felt the handling and the braking abilities of the '15 CTR were AMAZING... and the acceleration was merely above average. It was a bit of a tease... the torque poured on early, which gave the impression that things were about to get really good... and then it began to really fall off, almost feeling winded and labored. The new car should have more power. If not, hopefully companies like Hondata and K-Tuner can get a handle on it quick and the power can be bumped up to respectable levels.

I'd venture a guess of radar for cruise control
