rip racer, superslow: i'm going down to the manufacturer today, and i can ask how much it would cost for them to make a couple of clutch lines extra long with the proper fittings to go directly from the master to the slave.... thats the nice thing about it doing it via a group buy and since these are being made locally, it is much easier to convince them to make a couple of custome pieces, after all i'm walking in with 15+ orders, they will be hard pressed to say no... lol.... ill post up the numbers for that, when i post a picture of the curly q clutch line delete...

again... my whole thing is about helping the community to get quality parts the way you guys want it.... so ill definitely get those number for you....

as a point of consideration, even though these lines are coated, i would still run it along the fire wall, i wouldn't want it rubbing on the motor, the motor will vibrate, and it will eventually eat through the coating, and then tear up whatever it rubs against...

as i noted i'm already in the planning stages for the next group buy... i'm keeping it secret for now, but it will come with different modification options, i.e. level 1, level 2, etc etc... and it will be SUBSTANTIALLY less than whats available on the commercial market and a freaking huge improvement in quality as well! i'm gonna post about it as soon as i get everyone sorted out on this first group buy... i.e. i want to make sure every one is happy before i bring the next product out...

Gospeed refers to Hyper a.k.a. Peter Pan, "planning" things that were "secret." He just couldn't keep it secret that he had no idea what the **** he was doing.

Thanks for checking in on the extended line james. It is a very nice option to have. It can be mounted easily along the firewall with plastic clips too.

hey guys, the clutch line wasn't ready.... yes i am pissed...but i was promised tomorrow... but i worked out a bonus for everyone!!!

COLOR!!!!

YOU NOW HAVE YOU CHOICE OF CLEAR OR BLACK!!!!

BUT YOU NEED TO LET ME KNOW BY THIS FRIDAY!!!!

as for the line that runs straight from master cylinder to the slave, it is a 30 dollar add on.... AND ALSO AVAILABLE IN CLEAR OR BLACK... if you are going for the super long line (which is going to measure about 8 feet long) needs to be securely bracketed because the longer line will cause flex which will decrease pressure a bit.. due to flex...

so CHIME IN CLEAR OR BLACK... IF I DO NOT HEAR FROM YOU, I WILL BE ASSUMING CLEAR FOR YOU!!

AGAIN DEADLINE FOR COLOR IS FRIDAY!!!!
