    Thinkin of pickin one of these up soon. AWD + turbo = win! Plus, ricers seem to avoid them for some reason because insurance isn't all that high, and i dont have to worry about crankwalk with a 1g. What does the RC crew think of em?

    Get a 6/4 combo

    from what i hear, any crankwalk in a 1g is not due to manufacturer defect like in the 2g

    pretty much the quickest thing in my price range :D
    the 2gs can get 400whp with bolt ons... but the crankwalk scared me away from that. i need the car functional and reliable

    Reliable is one thing I've heard they are not... Don't they have a rep for breaking down a lot?

    at 400whp i'm sure they're higher maintenence. i think they can be as reliable as stock at ~300whp

    There is no crank walk in 1g or the 6 bolt bottom end period.... It happens in the 2g due to the oil passages configuration. Regardless, talons are like sea kings, fly at 100 mph for an hour and spend 100 hours rebuilding it.

    Ive got one, as a second "fun" vehicle. Maintenance isnt that bad if you do it yourself. Mines pretty mean, but im picking up a blown 2g to swap all my gear into., (6 bolt, plus mods)... I would not own a dsm again as a daily driver. Fun car, mines fast as shit, (people that have driven it compare it to a sport bike) but they can be expensive. I spent 12 grand building mine this winter, but nothing compares to a 60 trim at 30 psi.

    No really it isn't considering 1g/ and 6 bolts are pretty much the same. I just figured since your such the dsm expert that you could understand it. Now go post up more useless shit.

    Really? All 1g DSMs come with 6/4 configs? Now THAT is some news to me!

    Please oh please master mccrea can you educate us as to which models came with what, or perhaps provide us with a link that would simplify it instead of douching yourself all over the boards?

    Oh and just 'cause you're mad I made you look stupid doesn't mean you have to make snyde comments towards me in every post like a bent 12 year old.

    While you're at it, why don't you post more useless information using words like "pretty much" since you seem to know which side is up. Definitave information only, douche... not 'pretty much.' What I've said thus far is correct, including the bit about you being a douche.

    Ok there champ i will do my best just for you...........

    First, 1st gen talons 90-94 had two different blocks. 90-late 91-to mid 92 had the 6 bolt crank blocks. These are the strongest and capable of holding over 400hp on OEM internals.

    Second, the mid 92 - 94 had 7 bolt cranks. These aren't as strong as the 6 bolt. But regardless of this, there have been 0 reports of crank walk in 1st generation period.

    Third. Crank walk in 2nd gen's is not just limited to awd drive models; it is also inherit in fwd's as well.

    Fourth. I should get this out of the way now, go fuck yourself.


    Ok pat, lets see your demonstration of DSM knowledge, considering you seem so educated and such.......

    Well your story has changed already.

    However;

    There has been evidence of cw in earlier DSMs, just not in the same scope as in the later ones. Funny, there have been reports of cw in sbc's, 2jz's, M62s, gen 2 miatas, LS1s, etc.... it's nothing specific to DSMs and it's certainly nothing specific to the 2nd gen.

    Now, I see you've straightened out yourself on the "pretty much" by finally stating that not all 1st gens are 6 bolt, some are 7, which is more prone to walking. You know what walk is, right? That thing cranks do and what you can't do while clapping your hands. If you want to believe no one has ever walked a 7 bolt, that's your beef..

    And finally:

    I already told you to go fuck yourself, so take your undereducation and menial job that affords you this time and figure something out original.

    Yeah i see your truly superior to me with your education with your display of choice words......... undereducation??? Is quite the word, funny it's not even a word in the English dictionary? But you’re the big man here with superior education…..


    As for the crank walk issue. The original post was about 1st gen talons. So, theories of crank walk associated with other makes are really irrelevant at this point.

    Crank walk is specific to the 2nd gen's due to two major factors, improper machining of cranks. As well, Oil squirters specifically the ones on the 2nd gen are the major cause of crank walk. Mind you 1gens have squirters, these squirters and passages where machined in a different way.
