You probably won't need one for October. Maybe throw some hot water in it for the mornings. I wore a sweatshirt for half the day. And I don't get cold easily.

I don't wear underwear. Just pretend i didn't borrow your sweatpants.

Lol, what rungroup was that? And was that you? what tires was that on? It seemed you were going too slow to spin.

Well, I get hot easily. I've been wearing my suit at night here, shoes, gloves, helmet, just to get a feel for things... I still overheat in 45*F nights just walking around, trying to control my breathing. I think I'll still need the coolshirt. What temp does the mrls get in the mornings Oct 1st?

lol. do you want me to save my RE71R take offs? They have some meat left, not a lot, but way better than old frozen rs3s lol. I can just throw them in the trailer, I think I'll have room. 205/50/15. camber wear on the now outside corner, just basically shaved at that point, no tread, not to the cords yet.

Just my luck, both axles are seized in the hubs... not really a problem.

Ordered timkin bearings and retainers, hubs, axles, and wheel seals. It was only 230 from rock auto. Seemed like good prices to me.

Before you destructively remove the axle, try an air chisel with a punch tip. I have seen a few people bend knuckles with presses, and the air chisel really pops 'em out if you get the punch tip in the dimple at the end of the splined part of the shaft.

UUUUUPDAAAAAATE!

Happy part...
Gears are out of cryo bath!!! new shift forks getting a special hardening treatment from Roush! Same thing they do for NASCAR shift forks. Pretty cool.
Almost done with the Delrin bushing kit. Installed AWR front swaybar mounts. Steering rack bushings are in. FM stage 2 clutch is in.
Ordering Fast coolshirt kit tonight.

Sad part...
Reverent is unresponsive. I was told my MS3 Part Deux should be finished early June. It's almost mid July. I can't even run on the MS3 I currently have, it completely failed. Soooooo.......

That sucks. Hopefully I won't have the same issue with mine. Do you think the car will be ready for MRLS? Im eager to see it in person.

Wow, thank you so much. That made me so happy to know someone is looking forward to seeing my car. Like I teared up a bit. Havin a rough night, and that really really helped.

But yeah, I'm going to try my hardest to make it. I've begun the "pester every vendor until they give me what I want" stage of car build. If I can't get an ecu, I'll just put the stock ecu back in and run that. The car will be slow as *****, but I'll have fun! Maybe I'll just sell my hot laps to someone here, fly in and have 18psi pick me up, and just do ride alongs all weekend. Go in every single run group, get a ton of seat time lol.

I am the lucky child who buys premo parts, and am the only one that has fluke issues with them lol. Dont worry, you'll be fine.

I don't think the stock ecu will play nice with the s2 or flattop or some of the sensors that are now not functional (like the baro sensor that you re-wired for rev's MS3).

Have you tried all means of communication with Reverant?

Paging Reverant

I think the stock ecu will be fine with the s2 and flat top. Sensors maybe not. Reverant posted the other day. So hes around. Maybe your **** is getting sent to spam or something.

Shoot him a PM on here as well as email. It would suck to have to scramble to get the car dialed in just days before MRLS.
There is still enough time left now to prepare and be ready and avoid silly issues.

PREPARE, MRLS IS COMING

I only have used PM. I couldn't find his email. I've been trying to pay him for this ecu for awhile, I'm not sure what is going on. I can understand life happens, but just let me know, so I won't freak out as much.

I even told him that I don't want to send the old one back, just send the new one and I'll pay for it. I thought a free 1300 bucks was good incentive... nope.

You need to email him. Here's the email addy posted on his "site": info@mslabs.gr

If not, text me and we will go a different direction altogether. No time to fool around and play cat-n-mouse.

Ordered Puck type Supermiata Sport Clutch. Seems much better quality than the chinese crap FM offers.
