Background
This is my 3rd DSM over the past 12 or 13 years. I've been getting dumber and dumber with these cars lol. I do all my own work, mainly because I like to do things myself and partly because I'm a cheap ass - like most DSM owners. Plan on getting this thing well into the 9's at some point, but I don't have as much time to mess with it as I used to. The car has been running with this setup for over a year and I haven't even taken it to the track...

Stock 6 bolt destruction
Was a great shortblock, paid 100 bucks for it and I don't even know how many 10 second passes it made LOL. Plus a bunch of 6.90's in the 1/8th. I died a an honorable death.


1992 Talon 13.7 @ 100

Mustang vs Eagle Talon (1g DSM)
Running my car at Irwindale 1/8 mile dragstrip, 7.47 @ 97mph. First time out on the HX35. Got lined up against this unsuspecting mustang :) Still needs a better tune but it's going good so far.


1G DSM vs Mustang 5.0 - 11.6 @ 125mph
Twilight Drags in September at the Autoclub Dragway in Fontana, CA.


Eagle Talon TSI 12.5 @ 118mph
My 1992 Talon drag racing at the Autoclub dragway in Fontana, CA. 7-17-2010. This was the first (and worst) run of the day. I bogged the launch pretty bad and it was over 100 degrees on the track. I ended up running an 11.8@120 and 11.9@122mph later in the day.


1G auto HX35 in car
Running low 11's about a year ago in my auto swapped 1G. No nitrous for the launch as I was having issues with it on the line but I did spray it (50 shot) at the top of 2nd gear, let off for the shift and sprayed through 3rd gear. At the time, this motor's best cylinder was 130ish psi of compression. :rolleyes:

Old video I couldn't find online anymore. So I decided to upload it to youtube.
