    Yes but maiden voyage shakedown. Weather forecast is killer and it’s a great event so it’s a great reason to get a baseline.

    If other CF accents on the car, that’s not a bad look!

    While I very much appreciate the effort and idea...I paid the big bucks to see LOTS of carbon :D

    I've always been a fan of carbon hoods with the cowl portion left exposed like the picture above. I think the exposed carbon would tie in a black roof very nicely if that was ever an option. I'm a little biased though, I wrapped my roof black a few years ago and love the look

    Trans, clutch and driveshaft going in tonight. My favorite clutch of all time...the famed 3+. Such an under rated clutch. 850rwtq rating and perfect pedal feel. IMG_7934.JPG

    Also my favorite single disc clutch. I ran it in my turbo Fox for a whole summer with 901rwtq and it took it. SO much better drivability than the Stage 3 puck style. Nice choice.

    Only thing I hated about that clutch was the heavy pedal feel. I got stuck in stop and go traffic and my leg was shaking and on fire after an hour or so. It did hold anything I threw at it though.

    Hahaha, believe me that's not an issue. I've heard that they can be had with a light pedal option as well, not sure what's different with that particular version. I had one of the originals from way back when. It held everything I threw at it and was fairly streetable, just got tired of it. The car has an auto now, so no more issues :D

    So the trans install was delayed a day. My need for the cleanest creation possible led to hours of scrubbing the entire undercarriage with purple power and 0000 steel wool. Follower of course by a light polish. I mean....everyone polishes the bottom of their cars right?? Lol In all seriousness I can’t stand when people throw “show quality” or “mint” around without making sure that applies to every inch up, down, left, right, inside and out of the car. That’s being taken care of with this one.
    PS perfect pinch welds for the win.
    PSS don’t forget I do have full length MM subframes. The torque arm requires them anyhow. That will come later.
