::JLT Intake W/Brenspeed 93 Octane Tune::
::GT500 Axle Back Exhaust::
::Eibach Pro-Dampers::

::Vorshlag Caster/Camber Plates::
::Spohn Performance Panhard Bar::
::Stock Tires and Wheels(Nitrogen Filled)::

Looking good out there. What is your rev limiter set at? I'm curious if you're having any of the following:

Overheating issues
Shifting lockout issues
Clutch sticking to the floor

Day 1 - Temp 96 degrees
Shift Point - Factory Rev limit
Zero overheating or brake fade issues
Zero clutch issues
Experience the lockout issue several times - FRUSTRATING

Day 2 - Temp 97 degrees
Shift Point - 7K (I installed the intake and tune for the second day)
Zero overheating or brake fade issues
Zero clutch issues
Experience the lockout issue only once this day
I also finally figured out how to turn the traction control completely off so that helped improve lap times

Now I am running the rev limiter at 7500(have Boss intake and new tune), and have installed the Barton 2 post bracket, and that has definitely helped with the shift lockout

Thanks. My theory is most of the lock out issues are the clutch. I just installed a McLeod RXT and have a track day Friday and will report back. If I still have issues you'll hear me scream from 2,500 miles away!

HAHA....well good luck, keep us posted on that. My track day is the 24-25th of this month. This weekend I will be installing the Whiteline Watts link and flushing all fluids...can wait to try the new setup out
