Once the cluch reservior is seperated from the hot brake fluid, it would be nice to have a finned alloy brake fluid reservior..... hint hint..... :)

I'm going to do the GM reservoir mod (expecting the loss of a few RWHP with a GM part under the hood :D) in couple weeks, when I replace my master cylinder. My RTX clutch 'feel' has been disappointing since I replaced it last year. Very high engagement, jumpy, noisy and vibration in 1st gear. I read post from another GT500 driver that had some similar symptoms and replaced the master and most of his issue went away. Hoping for the same results with a fairly inexpensive fix. Plus, I figured I'd get the separate reservoir taken care of for a few extra bucks. I'll report back in a few weeks.

On a side note, I don't know if anybody else has noticed, but on both sides of the GM reservoir it has this embossed for some reason:

Haha. I installed the gm resivior a few months ago, but i checked my oil last sat and saw that "***" on there and laughed.

I put a sweat band/resivior cover/leak absorber over it.
