Knoxville Dragstrip is 890 feet above sea level. The air temperature during these runs was 65 degrees and the Density Altitude was 1,814 feet above sea level. For all three runs the Boost was set at 27 psi and a 50/50 mix of 93 octane pump gas and 110 octane race gas was used. The car's race weight was approximately 3,390 pounds with driver. The best time/MPH of the night was: 60 ft: 2.091 ET: 7.683 MPH: 106.159 You can see a complete modification list and many more photos and details at http://talon.turbomirage.com Thanks for watching! -Tom Disclaimer The content provided in this video is for informational use only.

CRANKWALKED? 7-bolt teardown 1080HD
Now this is a story all about how My bearings got flipped-turned upside down And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there And tell you how I used to mix and burn my gas and my air. In RVA suburbs born and raised On the dragstrip is where I spent most of my days Chillin out, maxin, relaxing all cool, 'n all shooting some BS outside with my tools When a couple of guys who were up to no good Started running races in my neighborhood I heard one little knock and my rods got scared And said "You put it in the garage until you figure out where..." I Begged and pleaded that it not be that way, But it didn't want to start and run another day. I kissed it goodbye, because the motor punched its ticket I got out my camera, said "I might as well kick it." Crankwalk yo this is bad Drinking metal shavings from an oil pan. Is this what the rumor of crankwalk is like? Hmm this won't be alright But wait I heard knocking, grinding and all that Is this the type of failure that should happen to this cool cat? I don't think so, I'll see when I get there I hope they're prepared for this video I share. Well I pulled all the bolts and when I came out There were chunks in my fluids in the pan and they drained out I aint all depressed cause I seen this before. I got my books and my wrench and we'll do it once more. I sprang into action like lightning disassembled I whistled while I worked and my hands never trembled If anything you could say that this bling is rare, and when I saw what broke I stained my underwear. I turned off the air compressor 'bout 7 or 8 And I yelled to crankcase "Yo holmes, smell ya later" I looked at my internals they were finally there To sit on my workbench and stink up the air. Audio track by RojoDelChocolate. Here's the 48,000 mile-old 7-bolt I blew up summer 2011 after over 150 drag passes, a half dozen Dyno sessions, 4 transmissions, 3 clutches and 10 years of hard all-weather use.
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!
