2nd fastest 4wd in the world now!

John Sheppards Eagle Talon...

Might not be an Evo, but it has an Evo engine! - Are they the same chassis underneath?

Some of the early Evo's need to get running & catch up!

:eek:
wow... :cool:
didn't think he'd get there until next year
as his 8.13 was only a few months ago

& no ...the chassis isn't the same as an Evo
afaik, nor does it have an Evo engine....mostly 6-bolt/vr4
but amazing that it's still 'full-bodied'....weighs approx 2700lbs/1224kgs

Eclipse/Talon chassis are related to GVR4 Galant. Drivetrain like the EVO 1-3

note:
#only the early Talon/Eclipse engine (except injection system) is the same as a vr4
#gearbox, suspension, hubs(5-stud) etc are all different to vr4 & e1-3, although early Talon gearbox with shorter 1st gear ratio can be used in vr4 to make it quicker
#electronics & ecu is totally different from vr4 & e1-3
