Heat Treated   5 comments

A while ago me and a few mates took our cars to the drag strip for a bit of a laugh, on one of my few runs I managed to change from 2nd into 5th and slipped my clutch real bad.

The clutch seamed to handle drifting with the power i used to run ok, but at the last hampton day with my new turbo setup it started slipping again.

I pulled the gearbox and clutch out and it didn’t look good.

Ive ordered a new clutch disk which should arrive before the weekend, now I just need to get the flywheel and pressure plate piece machined and put it all back together ready for taupo on the 20th.
