What does that mean? Your fuel pump turns on now?
Turn the key and go out and bang some gears!

That's some pretty good shifting for holding a camera while making a pass, especially with as quickly as you were having to shift again.

His camera appears to be mounted on the steering wheel.

he has a 4.30 iirc vs your....3.9?
acceleration looks very similar to my white cars except I was shifting slow as hell so as not to break the 5sp "glass" trans.

oh how I would love to own a 6sp/3.6fd setup.

Camera was zip tied to the steering wheel, no way I could drive, shift, and record at the same time.

I've got the stock 3.90 and 6 speed in my car. Top of 5th is around 120.

It runs. On the street.

What you've been wating for. World's crappiest car video!!!

Of course, the day that I get my car back on the road, it is raining.

949 clutch isn't much harder to slip than ACT extreme and 9lb flywheel. Yeah it revs a bit faster and shifts very nicely at 8000RPM. I forgot how much frakikng fun my car is to drive. I was expecting it to feel like lagbeast since I've been dailying my small turbo 2.5L subie BUT it actually is quite peppy out of boost. I suppose the 8000RPM redline vs 6400 redline in subie affects how it feels a lot too. So much fun. If only it would stop raining now.

Red light is turboxs knocklite. Red light means knock . My gas is probably bad from sitting for a while. It smelled like it was bad. That and/or clutch adds noise.

Gauge on right is plx dm-100 displaying AFR as a rolling graph.
