Default Going up on blocks for mods.

This project/hobby is finally getting attention again.

I had some minor surgery that put me back a few weeks, but now is looking good.

Motor mounts (for the THIRD time), clutch (replacing the Monster stage 3), carbon fiber driveshaft, KW shock and spring setup.

I figure two weeks (I take a lot of breaks).

Anyone interested in the Monster clutch, pm me.

Very low mileage (about 5k).

What do you want for the clutch? Is the flywheel included?

Flywheel and slave included as I won't need or use any of it.

I was thinking about you the other day, heavy, and wondered where you were. Glad you're back at the wrench and the computer.

Let us know about that carbon fiber driveshaft and how it drives.

Thanks for thinking bout me.

Just took a break from the CF and worked on stuff that was more important.

Turned out anything was more important.

LOL

Up on blocks (way UP).

Exhaust is out, headers are out and PCM is in the mail (for modifications).

Drive shaft is coming out next.

I figure at least two weeks before I get it back together, and maybe another week before I get it all apart.

50% off on the Monster clutch if anybody is interested ($500.00).

Are you using the Creative Steel mounts this time? What did you have before?

What suspension did you have before? I have 75k miles and I'm sure shocks are coming due, but those KWs look pricey.

After going through a set of stock ones and now on the second set of UUC (crap) I am going to try the UMI mounts.

Stock suspension (currently).

Creative steel axles.

The KW's are supposed so be the "hot setup", so I guess I will find out.

IT CHATTERED, and is very difficult to slip enough to get a good "launch".

Other then those "minor" things, it works very well.

Clutch has about 2-3k mi of wear.

Monster says the chatter can be "cured" by replacing the puck type disc with a full face (they offer one), but I decided to replace the whole thing with a twin disc.

HAHAHA

Things were going fairly smooth and I was doing a little at a time as the last time I replaced the clutch I phucked up my shoulders and it took 6 months to heal.

I have the transmission ready to come out and I get about 1/2 inch of it clear when I get hit with the most major leg cramp ever.

YEOWWWWW!!!!

My clutch leg(!) and I had one hell of a time putting Mr. Vette back in the garage.

Taped up like a racehorse at the moment and cooling it.
