So!!!,i got my new clutch fitted today and happy i was,on the drive home decided i would do a quick shift just too test out the new clutch,round a roundabout on the gas into second,chirp and BANG,tinkle,tinkle ,tinkle(ball bearings hitting the road).

Roll about 100m,pullover too assess the damage and a citric acid falcon pulls up behind me,i thought mmmmm who could this be .Out steps a fella and proceeds over to me and flashes his FEDERAL POLICE BADGE.So i went off ,dont even start at me mate,ive just picked up the car and i got 30k's down the road and this happens,my daughter is at home waiting for me too pick her up and im stuck here with this piece of SHIT again.

(Copper) Before you get yourself into anymore trouble listen to what i have too say and i will be on my way.I saw what you did and if i see you do that again i will impound your car.

(Me) Ok thanks for that.

Wait an hour for a tow truck,take the car back to the dealer.

Another eventful day in life on an FPV GTP NOT A TYPHOON NOT to mention its the DRIVE SHAFTS not the CLUTCH owner. :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

I suppose u can't really blame FPV some of us are pushing out more power @ rears than what the motor has out of the factory.If u want to mod your car u have to realise these things will happen and u just have to wear the cost.Any car that is modified most of the times these problems will arise from time to time.

His name is GTP-738, i doubt very much he is talking about an Typhoon.
I really like the new cars, but thankfully my old one came with a better driveline, you may have an try an aftermarket clutch, mine tolerates 6500rpm launches :

I had just picked up the car from the dealer after having a Mal Woods clutch fitted which was supplied by Extreme Ford Tuning and i was testing it out,the clutch is fine but now it looks like the rest of the driveline is weak as well.

Yeah but the thing that bothers me the most is the fact that the car has broken both the Cv's in standard trim,thats the part im most annoyed about.

I mean if it was supercharged or on NOS i could understand but STOCK.
