I’ve got track night at America at Sebring on Thursday.
I’ll be shifting a little earlier to keep the clutch/gearbox happy. Then I’ll look at getting a clutch installed.
Don’t fancy doing it on jack stand in my garage
What rpm do you usually shift at?

New wider Falken RT-660's all around. Now I have to check fender clearances. was running 295/40-18's, went up to the 315/30-18's. Now let's see what adjustments are needed.

Also, one sarcastic comment. Had to buy a new battery:(! Returned from winter trip and the battery was stone dead😳. Zero volts. Cheap a** battery from Ford, only lasted 12+ years:mad:. Yes, can you believe the original battery left me stranded in my nice cozy heated garage:)! I forgot to leave the battery maintainer on it when I disappeared for three months:ohdamn:. Lets see if the AGM battery I bought is any better🤔.

Had an exedy hyper single clutch, new slave cylinder, pilot bearing and ford performance one piece driveshaft installed by a local shop.

Hopefully that will fix the high rpm lock out.

Joking apart really pleased I was able to take my car to Kohr. It’s great that they are so close and able to fit me into their busy schedule

I didn't realize they have a Florida shop - good to know. Nice upgrades, and with the MGW you will be quite pleased.

Well, Rob we were lucky enough on your Bosses BD to get not one, but two Tornado Warnings and needless to say we are becoming very intimate with our basement! Over 6 inches for us, but fortunately no hail, I am not interested in turning in a claim on my new trailer when I haven't even got much done fixing up the house from the 4/26/24 tornado.

Happy BD and today is gorgeous , take your Boss for a Birthday cruise!
