today I went down to the auto shop to get some gear for the wifes car and in the same street there is a race engine shop that was open and I could see the front of a GT( blue with cobra stripes races in the GTP class and won Its class in the Bathurst 24 hr ) the shop is called Preformance engines, Kamholtz crt Ashmore QLD. So I went in to ask about the clutch and fluid. and the machanic said the the gear box and clutch was stock standard and they have never had any clutch problems, go figure.
I also contacted the Gene from total to ask him about the mods on his cars. But unable to contact him as of yet. But I am led to belive that they are both have mods on them. So Now I am think there are some good batches of clutches and some bad batches. And as I said before my clutch hooks up real good and in all gears, I even tryed to get the clutch to slip but it holds on realy well even when I slip the clutch in 3rd under full exeleration. So I think the clutch upgrade can wait, but if it does starts to slip then I go to mal woods. In the mean time the car is booked into ford to have the fluid replaced
with RBF600. I will let you no if there is an improvement with the clutch peddle.
Anyway Got some good news, I am the proud owner of a set of DBA4000 XS dics rotors and the guys fro QFM ( they use to sponsor me in my Karting days) are making me a set of pads to go with them (street and race combo)
so she will pull up hard and fast over and over and over and over and over and over and over. They will be getting fitted on friday 14th, then on saturday 22nd I am going to darlington park for a sprint day to try them out. I also contacted pirtek about S/S braided brake lines. and they can either custom make them or of the shelf for about $55 each. I have also ordered a thermostat from BPT that should be here soon.
then after that the next mod is the suspension. But that a few months away yet
