MONSTER TURBO 1200hp 1G Eagle Talon
One of the craziest AWD builds we've seen yet showed up at Street Car
Takeover OKC and put on a show! Making it all the way to the finals, even
while down on power, Darren Thomas made some badass passes in this 1G DESM,
as deep as the 5.60's range in the 1/8 and the car typically is in the 5.40
E/T's. This car is no joke!
We hope to see it back out again once the car is all sorted out!
Twin Engine 800hp Eagle Talon - 4.6L Twin Turbo!
Although the car is fast, can't go below 12s in the 1/4 mile drag strip, -

run 11's or faster on the track. I
refuse to street race with it however, I didn't make it to be immature
about it. This was my first car in 93, w/ 22k miles. My dad refused to let
me buy a Camaro on my
own, so he put some extra cash in... and drove it for 2yrs while I was in
college putting 60k miles on it! Nooo!
