The pictures look pretty good. I bet its more operator error than anything.

Default Got a little more done.

I had a really poor clutch throw out system last time I ran the car and swore I would redesign it, It was basically a pedal attached directly to the crossshaft. Very poor design and really hard to operate(had to use my heel to release the clutch)
Here is whats left of the old system.



This new system I installed is not tested yet but I hope it will make the pedal effort virtually nill, its a little more complicated but I mounted everything on roller bearings so I hopefully will be nice and smooth.

The way the chassis and bellhousing are situated the pedal arm and cross shaft arm are almost on top of each other. Thats why I cheated and just attached the two together last time. The double pivot system solves this issue.(or seems to) Thanks to Tim Mcamis' engineers for that little concept made my life real easy

Default New Wheelie Bars

Its been a while since I showed any progress but I got a little done. Started the new wheelie bars. They are a lot longer than my old ones. Old ones were 48" these new ones are 84", should be a lot better. The old ones were pretty dangerous (too short)
