| Sean's best effort is a 9.571-second, 148.04-mph blast. This was accomplished on slicks just prior to the car's appearance at the IDRC International Finals. At the IDRC event the Extreme Motorsports Talon grabbed the top qualifying spot in the Quick XVI, blasting a 9.70 right off the trailer.
| This is a sight that should be seen in more Quick Class racers-a fire suppression system. Sean runs a Phoenix fire suppression set-up that only costs $300 to $500 and is fairly easy to set up. The system runs two nozzles into the engine bay and one in the cabin, on the lower dash between the driver's legs.
| The Talon's 4G63 has been fortified with Extreme Motorsports-spec pistons, Crower rods and a prepped stock crankshaft. The valvetrain runs Web Cam cams, Unorthodox Racing cam gears and heavy-duty guides.
| A Mike Hansen manifold is home to a Garrett turbo configured to Extreme Morotsports' secret specs. The turbo system consists of a Tial wastegate, GReddy blow-off valve and an Extreme Motorsports XBC boost controller. Max pressure is 30 psi.
| The fuel system utilizes two high-flow Bosch pumps that feed eight 550cc injectors which are driven by a Haltech E6S-8 engine management system. An Essex regulator controls the flow of C-16 to a custom Extreme Motorsports fuel rail.
| The old adage is still true, "if you're not breaking parts you're not trying hard enough." This transfer case output shaft has proven to be a weak link, a link made even weaker with the recent move from street tires to slicks. Sean plans to address this and other driveline issues in the off season. He is considering constructing his own shaft out of an "alternative material."
| Here we see a dyno run performed on Sean's Talon. Sean runs his slicks on the dyno but when squeezed, the engine reacts so quickly that wheel spin can occur. This 663 horsepower, 617 lbs-ft of torque run should open some eyes in the Honda camp. Calculating a 15-percent driveline loss, that's 780 horsepower at the flywheel. Impressive.
