Tonight i am going to print up signs and try jumping on the hood/roof with my hands up. I will also try ventilating the windows with a traffic cone to see if that helps.
Mine does that, but only when its wet out. I cant explain it. And I can tell you its not related to clutch heat, I've tried toasting the clutch and it still does it. Totally dependent on engine temp.

I jumped on it and busted out the windows and no difference. I got arrested and am sitting in court for my arraignment. ****** cops.

While in prison, i talked to _______ (name redacted cause snitches get stitches). He is from the crips that is now the blips because the bloods and the crips joined forces for the betterment of Baltimore. He suggested i check the fork and slave cylinder. He also said it might be goop built up on the shaft that the clutch slides on, causing the clutch plate to hang up when cooler.

While fully warmed up on the way home from the pokey, i pressed the clutch in a bunch of times to possibly smooth out the goop. Later, while cool, it did make a positive difference. But it was quite a bit warmer out, so not sure if it is really better.

I would like to thank ______ (name redacted) for the advice and the butt sex.

Crazy, but some of those things happened. No, i didnt jump on my car and bust out the windows. That actually happened to other people during the peaceful protests. Snitches get stitches originated from good ole baltimore. The bloods and the crips did join forces to make baltimore a better place.

I am not sure what coverage this recieved nationally, but the coverage locally changed when the governor stepped in. Thats when the interviews of members of the rival gangs started, and the announcement of joining forces. You cant make this stuff up.

Oh, and i really am sick. High on dayquil, so there you have it.

The term "thug" is racist even though it has been around since the 1300's. Google "thuggee" and you will discover it's roots. It is equivalent to using the n word now.

Fail on the pic. It might even be a hawkeye. You win.

lol dayquil, did they like change the formula again? It used to just be cough syrup with the over the counter stimulant dujour of the day. So nothing to make you loopy, just get you cranked.

It normally knocks out the symptoms but leaves me with that spacey/foggy feeling.
