Good call. Just try to aim out the window when you take me for spin.

1. I meant the plastic for the wet poonani that has sat there

2. Ya think. Remember the thing to tight the belt broke. So I pulled it while my dad torqued the regulator.

On other news I regret not doing the cam seals, but I wanted to finally drive this car SOOOO bad. And my oil pressure gauges are gonna give me a heart attack one of this days. I have no leaks, and the dipstick shows full and the gauges fluctuate a lot. Oh I NEED a clucth BAD.

FM1 is the only clutch I will recommend, because doing the job twice cause you cheaped out sucks *****.

The F1 stage 3 should work fine if you really want to cheap out. I personally have driven Braieacks old 6 puck and I will never get one myself. They are just a bitch. The FM1 will cost more, but it holds more power, and will be much easier on the leg.

I have done enough clutch jobs that to me I will not cheap out. I also have seen enough cheap clutches fail and having to re-drop the tranny sucks.

ACT, FM, or the high end twin-disc are the only clutches I will recommend.

Well remember back in the day when we had the group buy on those cheap I believe clutchnet clutches by that crazy russian Ivan. I disctintly remember putting in Braineacks clutch bright and early Saturday morning. To find when it was assembled that it did not work and needed "spacers". So we redid the job with some spacers that we picked up at the hardware store later that afternoon. Later that week the clutch died again and we swapped back in his old one the following weekend. After that experience I will never skimp out on a clutch again. Doing the job once and knowing the clutch will work is worth the extra $200 for the FM1 or an ACT.

So my dad took me up in a Cessna yesterday and then let my fly it for the first time. I must say, a 45 degree bank is A WHOLE LOT steeper than it sounds. I got really scared.

Stayed dry the whole day. Car did want to step out under heavy braking, was rather fun though.

Less fun was the track being closed for an hour to clean up the thrashed 997 GT3 and M3 CSL that had a coming together. Porsche is probably totalled, not sure for the beemer.
