A local company called Clutch Specialties put this 6-puck ceramic clutch together for me in 24 hours. I sent them my old OEM e34 M5 clutch for reference. Then they delivered it to me at work… at no charge. Talk about service!!!rnThe OEM e34 M5 it will replace..Parts Shop MAX hydro e-brake… complete with Earl’s stainless lines and fittings. God I hope this works
Parts started trickling in today for the massive overhaul that the e46 is about to get. I’ve really been doing nothing lately but driving the ever-living hell out of this car. It is time to hook old grrrl up with some new bits and keep her running strong.Treehouse Racing “Eyeball Arms” to replace one of the few rubber bushings I have left on the carZeckhausen Racing Modified Clutch Delay Valve. Why I’ve had this car for this long and never heard of this mod is beyond me. Big thanks to Tony Shulz for the heads up on an amazingly simple, inexpensive, and GREAT modNew delrin shifter… more metal than a bubble shift knob, but just as effectiveLong overdue Longacre helmet hook for the rollcage. Now I can cut the crusty 5-yr old bungee cord off the cagePicked this up from Mr. Stribling himself. Maybe this will help the return trip down the hill back into 10a..
Didn’t make as much progress on the car tonight as I wanted. I ran out of daylight. I tried hammering out the bumper supports that got bent when I tagged Austin. It’s going to need some more hammering, because now one bolt will thread, and the other won’t. I dug up an old smoke lense to replace the one I shattered on Austin’s car. I went ahead and drilled out the hole with a 1″ hole-saw for the strobe light. The headlight is kinda smashed in there… I can’t get this lense on the car, so I’m gonna have to figure something out.
