You are overheating the everliving **** out of it. Drag race, slipping clutch, or are you the worst 3-pedal driver in the world?

He drag/street races the everliving **** out of that thing lol
The clutch has been slipping on the high gear shifts the past few times I rode in it, I'll bet that heat up the flywheel to nearly glowing status.

there were 7 or 8 other cracks that went about 1/2 way through... got a new flywheel in and im almost done with my custom mounts before i can see how the clutch holds on the new flywheel.

i normally let off when the clutch starts slipping unless im racing.

The Heaven 500

The Heaven 500 was just getting started,
an all-star race, for the racing departed.
Heroes of the track, with nerves like steel,
and sitting on the pole was a cat named Neil.
Adam Petty was there, with his beautiful smile,
Kenny Irwin, determined to finish in style.
Lee Petty was glowing, with grandfatherly pride,
with Davey and Clifford, each had a new ride.
Fireball Roberts floated in on a cloud,
while Tony Roper waved to the Heavenly crowd.
Morosso and Nemechek, then Tim Richmond appeared,
Kulwicki strapped in while the racing fans cheered.
The honorary starter, for this Heavenly race,
Ralph Earnhardt was chosen, a tear on his face,
but the red flag flew even before it had begun,
with every eye, wide open, and looking to the SUN.
A last minute entry was the cause of delay,
while the fans were instructed to kneel and pray.
The Heavens turned black, and the clouds turned dark,
the lightning was brilliant, the thunder did bark.
Then out of the rumble, for all there to see,
the clouds formed a number, a black number 3.
The Heavenly fans then erupted with pride
and welcomed this star who had recently died.
On a bolt of lightning, Dale Earnhardt arrived,
as he stood before Jesus, his spirits revived.
Jesus hugged his precious child, then revealed his perfect plan.
"I brought you home to let you know, I'm your biggest fan!"
As Ralph stood proud, the green flag flew,
the crowd went wild, and the tension grew.
And just like Salvation, the admission was free,
as every eye focused, on the black number three.
When the checkered flag dropped, no dry eyes remained,
it was a photo finish, as Jesus explained.
He said, "There are no losers, on this Heavenly track.
This was a welcome home party, for The Man in Black!"

Present perfect interrogative:

Have I broken?
Have you broken?
Has he/she/it broken?
Have we broken?
Have you broken?
Have they broken?
