I found the problem with my Talon project car.

Well just looking at the top of the piston you cant see much of a problem. But if you look at the side....well the pictures explain themselves....

Good...





DEAR GOD!!!!!!

Going to get new piston head and rings for it. Do a quick honing of the cylinder and throw it back together....maybe

problem = its a talon

my buddy had a project talon and it was always a project. damn fast cars when they are running, but they seem quite problematic to me.

So uh... how do you do that to a piston? I mean I can sort of see them over heating and warping, but that looks like it was just plain melted.

I think a combination of overheating and that there was a crack in between the compression rings. It not quite as bad as the pic makes it look, its blurry because it is with a phone camera. The piston wall looks alomst perfectly fine.
