    You burnt another one up!?

    I don't think any special tools are required... are you going aftermarket or just getting another stocker? Make sure to replace the throwout bearing. I bet it would be many times harder without a lift.

    yo chunks!

    good to see you here again!
    yeah I made a mistake by not letting the car sit for at least 5-10 mins. I just keep on going and going. the slip is not as bad- but I can't afford the slip during any race. the last one lasted me about hmmm.. 25K miles? lol!

    i'm getting exedy OEM clutch. stage 1 or 2 might be too much for the stock tranny. it should be here friday.

    It's not that bad. Removal and reinstalling it took about 4 hours laying on my back by myself. I've done many many transmissions, so if you aren't familiar with changing one it will probably take about 4-6 hours.

    The clutch fork releases with a hex bolt on the top left side of the bellhousing. The axles are not the c-clip type, they are held in with roll pins. Undo the ball joints only, and pry the lower controll arms down to release the spindles from them. This will keep you from losing your alignment. Other than the clutch fork, and roll pin axles, everything is pretty much standard stuff.

    cool!

    one last thing, Trainrex. I'm confident about my mechanical ability, but I don't have those special tools they've mentioned on that instruction manual -- do I really need them?

    did you have to replace old spring pins with new one? (for the driveshaft)

    I used a jack to support the trans. If the roll pins still give resistance when reinstalling them, they are fine.
