Eagle Talon Esi ’97

This car has a lot a power for an FF car and also a lot of understeer when I first started tuning it. I worked as hard as I could to remove all of it, but the fact that it is FF makes that basically impossible. However, the majority is gone and as long as you don’t slam the gas around a turn you shouldn’t notice it too much. I am also using sports soft tires, which provide decent grip, but do spin-up and turn red if you are really hammering the gas. Another reason not to punch the gas too hard around a corner. I decided to stick with sports soft tires as my main testing tire because most people will be using this car for 500pp events (lower power to hit 500pp), and its low power doesn’t really need racing tires. However, if you do decide to use racing soft tires is when the Eagle Talon becomes a totally different car. It feels like a planted rocket guided along a laser beam around the track. I could not believe how much better it felt. Any little understeer problems, or over-tire-spin were completely eliminated. It became a lot more fun, and a pretty serious racer.

The Eagle Talon is a very unique car. It is very similar to the Mitsubishi Eclipse with basically the same power, weight, and drivetrain. Although I have not tried this myself, I would assume that this tune would work fairly well on that car as well.
