I can't believe it!!! Not even 10,000 miles and my ClutchMasters 4 puck ceramic clutch is slipping. How do you even slip a 4 puck clutch? Time for an ACT or Centerforce or something, I guess.

No work on the car the last couple weeks because I've been working on and off on some storage/organization stuff for the storage room. Tossed together some plywood shelves, and a standing height workbench to keep tools/projects/parts off the floor.

Sorry Brain, Throw some D's is like my favorite song, but Hollywood Holt got dis bitch on lock/

Hollywood Holt and The Cool Kids are ridiculously fun to listen to by the way. Check out Black Mags, I'm Mikey and some others.

So trying to paint wheels in 100* heat and dripping sweat all over the paint is rather frustrating.

So I took a shower\jerkoff break.

i was out sunday in this weather, it was 98F with a "real feel" of 105F. I lasted about 45 minute running wires to my engine bay, when i was finally ready to crank the car again I couldn't take it anymore. I took a cold shower and ended up sleeping until 6pm. **** completely drained my batteries, the brain needs a lithium upgrade.

Go with the FM2 clutch or the 949 twin disk. There is absolutely no reason not to go with either of those.

I have done well over a dozen clutch swaps and will not recommend any clutches besides those.

I will definitely take these into consideration. Thanks for the recommendation good sir!

I just have to make sure I don't have an issue with something else like clutch hydraulics or an oil leak. If not, I suppose the trans is coming out...again. Sigh.

At least I'm getting good at pulling it, I can remove the trans pretty quick too.
