Re: Mark's Talon

Went up to BIR over the weekend for Proving Grounds and ran in the 1/4 mile. This is the first time i've ever launched this car or been to a track, so I was definitely nervous. Had 2 problems I gotta address before going out again, the first was having an issue going from 1st to 2nd in the upper rpms especially if I tried with NLTS (probably driver error) and second is needing wider, better tires.. spun all 4 near every time running my 215/60r16 kelly explorers. lol.
Ended up running just shy of the 11's and hit a 12.1 and a 12.0 overall it was one of the best experiences ever and i'm hooked.
