Handles very well, although oversteer can be a problem when cornering at high RPMs. Powerfull and reliable. Defenitly an eye catcher.

Easily upgraded and cheap.

Review

Unfortunately for the Talon, it always gets bad reviews from people who don't know anything about the car. I bought mine needing repairs and had NO trouble fixing the car. The typical things to watch out for when driving the 4G63-based cars: Timing Belt and the Balance Shaft Belt (small belt behind the timing.) People complain about the transfer case leak, it's under recall from Mitsubishi, people. Treat this car right, and you will have no problem with it. You will not believe how many of these cars are treated bad, and end up with problems because of it.


Favorite Features

All-Wheel Drive (great for winter), seats that adjust in almost any possible way, the Mitsubishi TD05 14b turbo, great Blow Off Valve compared to the second generation DSMs.


Suggested Improvements

Boost gauge (don't trust it, it doesnt even read vacuum), steel piping instead of the crummy rubber hosing for the SMIC. Stronger exhaust manifold ( the 1g's (90-94) are prone to cracking and leaking, but for $100 a second generation can be installed )

Review

these cars are WAAY to much fun. As stated by another rater of the car. You need to look at the belts every few thousand miles. These aren't honda's where you can just let them run and run forever without any maintence. These are moderate maintence cars. But if taken care of, onyl the tranny will fail you. From AWD launches :) to the guy who paid 1500 for fixing the oil leak in his tranny. You could have bough one for that price from RRE that was built to handle the abuse.


Favorite Features

BALLZ and a 5500 RPM launch.


Suggested Improvements

EVO shift forks, triple 1 and 2 and double syncro the rest.
