As the car's performance has progressed, so has its looks. Speedesign has concocted the distinctive scheme on Sean's Talon, giving the racer a single-digit aura to back up its single-digit timeslips. As mentioned earlier, it's going to be a busy winter for the crew at Extreme Motorsports. Instead of hibernating during the cold months, Sean and company will be reworking driveline parts in an effort to excise the demons. We wish them the best of luck and hope see the Talon racing on a nationwide basis in 2000.
An additional 100 horsepower...
An additional 100 horsepower can be squeezed into action via a Nitrous Express, single-nozzle wet-manifold system. Sean pushes the button right off the line and juices the engine for the entire run.
The interior of Sean's Talon...
The interior of Sean's Talon retains a factory-like aura, running the factory dash, center console and carpet.

The old adage is still true,...
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...
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.
