Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
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!

Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
TD Ben's Twin Engine Grand Prix GTP built by Turbo Dynamics
Currently only running 60% power to test the platform.
Rear engine is stock GTP 3.8 engine, converted with a TD turbo kit. Running low Boost making 450HP for testing.
Front engine is Supercharged stock 3.8 with a bolt on parts to make 350 HP.
Results is spinning all four sticky tires.
Test is done on a dust covered road on cold tires. Amazing that it is that
quick in such conditions. That's the beauty of AWD !
0-60mph in 2.6 seconds GPS
60 foot E.T. 1.53 seconds
According to data this will be a low 10 second car in these conditions. And
remember it's only running 60% power.
At the track it will hook much harder and 60 foot time will be much lower !
