As some of you may have read my recent bleaty post re the Typhoon clutch. Well firstly to Aussie Geo, don't worry about the EB wa@kers mate, its only jelousy.
I sent Mr Flint another bleat the other day suggesting that FPV buy me a Mal Wood clutch and fit it, and this is part of the email response I got this morning.
"Thank you for your email. I am pleased that eventually we were able to satisfy you but its a pity that you had to give us a nudge first.
I am confident that we are close to releasing a clutch with the issues solved and rather than fit what I am convinced is a totally unsatisfactory application of a single plate clutch you described, I would like to offer you a small part to play in our development program.
We have four cars currently running with the re-developed clutch in and it would be most useful if you would agree to have such a clutch fitted to your car to give us some more real world experience.
If you are agreeable to this, please call me and we will make arrangements just as soon as we can. I can be contacted on 04** *** ***
Well I rang David and we had a chat, he knows how bleaty and anal I can be about my FPVs and I don't think he would tell me something just to fob me off, or make this offer it it wasn't 99.9% real
. It appears to me that the fix is indeed very very close, done in fact, except they want to be sure it is right. I have a Dr of Engineering ringing me to organise getting the new set up fitted
Ahhhhh the fix, the fix, the fix is on the horizon.
