    1G Offset for 17x9 1g Talon

    If you're at 35 mm using a 5mm and a 3 mm spacer will effectively put you at 27 mm. However you must use ARP strengthened and lengthened studs.

    Photos of the old DSM legend cars?

    I'm moved finally but it's gonna take me a bit yet.I have pics of most of the OG guys. Buschur, Glazer, Doug Derby, Chris Croft, Chris Tichy, Eric Plebani, Ken Maynard, Jeff Hill, and others.....

    Photos of the old DSM legend cars?

    I do... however they are packed away......I'm guessing about a month until I unpack. The oldest pics I have are from the E.I.P. shootout at MIR July 4th weekend, 1996. That was the first Import Drag Race event on the east coast and also the weekend I knew I was actually going to drop...

    Here is the normally aspirated #34... 1991 SCCA WC Super Production Class Champion. I will drive this car on track for the last time on October 8, 2016. It's an amazing performer. Not much by way of straight-line speed, but, it's cornering speeds are impressive.

    I've actually stopped running the #32 after placing first in four consecutive time trial competitions at Lime Rock in 2014-2015.The first Archer car I got was the NA #34...And, I also have their one off 1992 Dodge Daytona IROC R/T...

    Well, they might have tried HKS, but they used another company that made several different grinds, then they paired that with some ecu tweaks. However, in the end, the SCCA stripped the cams from the Archer Brothers. I can look at the ECU's that came with the car. By SCCA rules, they were...

    My Archer Brothers Racing SCCA World Challenge Championship Winning Eagle Talons

    Wow! I love it! Not sure if it was you, but, someone had given me information on whom to contact about the Archers involvement in this race. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to do that. Pretty sure this is late 1990, and my car is #32 on the right in the pic, before it got the white...

    "I still hope to run a 10 this year, but time has definitely gotten away from me. If we can get the tuning dialed in I see no reason I can't go for it though." Good luck Shane! Do it!

    Rekindling the Racing Fire

    Sorry to hear this.....what a shame. However, I hope you can somehow find the power to stick with the DSM. It would be a shame to lose you to a Honda platform or BMW 3 series. While both are formidable track cars when done right, they are also really commonplace. I'm not surprised when I see...

    I had a good run with this Kelly American Challenge Mustang from the early 80's. I'll just say at the end of the day he wasn't as happy as I was :)

    I have several. GoPro stuff. However, I don't have a YouTube acct. and don't know much about editing vids at all. Life is so busy I just never take the time to do this. I hope to have it in place this season.

    My Archer Brothers Racing SCCA World Challenge Championship Winning Eagle Talons

    It's a non-eprom ECU so yes. This car probably doesn't make alot of power. My Laser RST with MAF mods, filter, 17psi, hollow cat and freer flowing muffler on stock exhaust piping, manifold, O2 etc. dynoed just under 210 whp and made about 234 TQ. This car runs at 15 psi with basically similar...

    Great! Keep me posted on how it goes. I have plenty of things to tie up here in CT before we can move, but, I'm on it. I will actually be in Homestead very soon to visit.

    I'd actually have to get a look at it. However it is a 25 year old piece and is more than likely discontinued.

    Hi, good to see pics of your car and hear that you plan to return to racing. Hope you can stick with the DSM. I'm way up here in CT, but am planning a move to FL within the next(ASAP)few years. Not sure where we will land as we have several areas we like, but, I'd love to link up with you and...

    So, it's been a while. I still have the Archer cars. I ran the #32 Turbo car last season and competed in two time trial competitions, placing first in class in both. Come to find out the car still had braking issues. The master cylinder was leaking. After the Wilwood front upgrade, and...

    My Archer Brothers Racing SCCA World Challenge Championship Winning Eagle Talons

    Justin, I did find out that they were experimenting with several can options back then and that Comptech did relative tuning via EPROM ECU's back then. Three extra ECUs came with the NA car, one EPROM, however it is not socketed, and if they were soldering every time they made adjustments, they...

    Also, Jose, I found out that Dave Wolin actually built all of those cars for Macau. They originated right here in the U.S. Then several of them came back to the U.S. and were used by the Jim Russell Racing school at Laguna Seca. I also heard that when the track changed hands years ago, those...

    Hi, this car has the most material removed from a 1g MAF that I've seen. It uses an HKS PFC F CON to keep idle and most likely for some small fuel tweaking. All other piping is as original. The car runs only 15 psi. Thanks for posting, Phil

    I'll see what I can do. That's pretty cool man. Unfortunately, the car in that ad is gone. That is the 1989 Championship car, the first year Bobby and Tommy ran Talons. I was bummed to find it isn't around as I would have obviously tried to add it to my collection. I've thought in the past...

    Well, thanks for checking in. Glad you enjoy it. It doesn't get me down so much as it makes me question if I'm wasting my time. I've got a super demanding lifestyle right now and free time is very limited. I see now we have "like" buttons. So, essentially, no one has to post anything, they...

    The #34 NA car has no power steering and is definitely a better feel for me. As a last resort I would remove it from the #32 car. I really don't want to alter it however. It doesn't drip on the ground when driving. It gets caught on the surrounding sheet metal. But, when the car is...

    My Archer Brothers Racing SCCA World Challenge Championship Winning Eagle Talons

    Thanks! It slows much better now. I inspected the vane flow before install to make sure they were correct. However now you're gonna make me go double check! Unfortunately, the Wilwoods won't let the American Racing wheels go back on, so I'll be pulling the Wilwood set up off and going back to...

    Thanks! I would hope there's another 1.5-2 secs. left. And for sure, I've definitely got some room left! Might take a while though. If I can get the car to be issue free, that will help.And, I have thought of removing the power steering to alleviate this issue. The #34 has it removed and...

    I am not as I wanted to leave the car as close to how it was when it was raced back in 1990. I honestly can't find where the fluid is coming from exactly. I thought it was getting hot and pushing by the rubber gasket on the cap. I flipped that as there was a decent groove which felt like a...

    That's possible as Wolin was with Mitsu some years before the DSMs arrived. His International Sedan cars were very modified, so if anything, maybe for Firestone Firehawk as they were pretty much "showroom stock."Yes, I need to buy a VHS to DVD converter. I have a rare Paul Rossi VHS tape...

    Well, I've taken #32 to two track days thus far this year. Unfortunately, they were not without issue. However, the car is a tad quicker than last year right out of the gate.The first track day was in the 40's with a damp track, wet in some areas.Somehow, both nuts on the front left...
