I don't like getting my hands greasy. It takes forever to get them clean.

I finally stopped staring at parts and dumped my order today. I went with billet steel spec flywheel and 2+ clutch plus a few extras that shoud make it a bit more fun at the track. Good thing it's 100 degrees out just in time for a clutch job.

He's got a good point Tj. I know you aren't a hand lotion rubbing nancy though so you can handle actually turning your own wrenches.

I've turned a few wrenches in my time. Guess I get to turn a few more. That's ok. It was an expected part failure and considerably better parts are going back on. Craig will be happy that I even ordered a drive shaft loop.

It's your butt it will save when a u-joint fails. That's good that you did though.

Yeah. With the alum drive shaft it's required equipment IMHO.

Good choice TJ. :nice: I lost a drive shaft last year & I got a NASTY gouge in the floor of my car even with a DS loop.

Yeah. I ran one back in the day in the 351 swapped fox. I have not since but I've also not had a car on a tire since either (non auto car that is).

For the price the benefit outweighs the cost.. Simple micro economics you know.
