Probably would have been the most financially sound choice. I didn't check on my phone all weekend though. **** died on Thursday and I just charged it.

<p>The Gorge in Washington is one of the coolest places I've ever been. If you ever get the chance you should go. Its a huge natural amphitheater that looks out over the columbia river. They have all sorts of shows for whatever music you like.</p><p>More pics to come later</p><p>

<p>Ok guys diagnosis time.</p><p>Got under the car. If I push the clutch fork either direction the noise stops. I can push the clutch slave cylinder back in and no noise. Only makes noise when it sits with the very slight amount of pressure from the slave cylinder.</p><p>Going to try and grease the pivot point of the clutch fork without pulling the trans.</p>

<p>Adjusted the clutch again. Helped a bit. Still makes noise when I wiggle the clutch fork. I'm going to leave it for now. But probably order a new TOB at some point.</p>

Your TOB seems to be riding on the clutch fingers, it shouldn't be.

<p>Track day went well otherwise. Got to ride with greddygalant and curly, that was a blast. Only got black flagged once (blew threw the chicane twice, I still have some ptsd from last year)</p><p>Laid down a 1:35.9 which isn't horrible. I have some issues to work out, going to try raising the suspension and getting another alignment. Also I'm still getting some gnarly brake fade. Going to flush the brakes.</p><p>Also my master started leaking from the reservoir. Need to find another one of those, any reason I can't take the master+booster from my 2001?</p>

Aiden, I ran a 36.2 with 100whp, perhaps less. More suspension and braking upgrades, less drivetrain crap!
I'll take you out in Laz next, you'll poop yourself

Your driving is significantly better than mine.
<br />I don't think suspension upgrades are happening anytime soon.
<br />Brakes will happen this winter
<br />I think alignment and ride height adjustments will help some, also I was struggling with brake fade.
