I have use Gforce in the past and had great luck with them.

I've been going since it started. I have a buddy with a 2002 Z28 who moved from up here & lives in the city the show is, so I visit & we take the cars to the track.

Ok, so everyone knows about the mechanics fender guards when your working under the hood. Does anyone know of a company that makes custom ones that i could put on the window sills of the car for car shows. Just that one extra thing to put your logo on and keep idiots with belt buckles from scratching anything.

Recently Ordered my 2013 2SS. First Camaro since I traded my 1980 Z28 w/ T-Tops in for a Silverado Step Side Mark III some 20 years ago. Before that, I had a '68 Camaro I sold due to moving from Philadelphia to New Port, Rhode Island. Looking to get with like minded drivers...

Took a test drive last Thursday, 2SS / RS Package, Manual w/ Hurst Short Shifter... Fell in love. Ordered Friday 5/17/13.

Aaaaand again with the clutch issues. Clutch is slipping now...Going to pull the transmission out tomorrow. Of all the issues to have right now Clutch shouldnt be one of them.

Tempted to completely retire my car from racing and just build my truck into a racecar.

You crack me up man, like I said I'm glad you like your auto. Congratulations on trying to be an ass but I don't really care if your driving your car while I fix the clutch. Drive your car and enjoy it, just as i enjoy driving mine. No point in trying to talk down to me because i have a manual and have to fix my clutch. But if you really want to run them I'm at Norwalk every Wednesday night.

OMG, not another Auto vs. Stick thread!

Seen lots of these on various threads, and they go nowhere. Half the time I'm driving I love my manual (track or in the country) the other half (city) I wish I had an auto. Going from light to light with a rough cam gets old fast.

Sorry about that clutch, is it stock? Mine started slipping at about the hp you're at now. Got the McCleod RXT now. Worth the price. I also just did the separate reservoir thing just in case.

I saw that on Yahoo yesterday. Even if I had the money, I don't know that I would blow it like he did.

On a side note, a few of us are going to Edgewater tonight. If you can, come down.

No it's not stock, its a Monster Single Disc rated for 700hp that I have a whopping 1500 miles on. Have a Ram throw out bearing and seperate clutch reservoir with it. We'll be taking the clutch out this weekend to figure out what went wrong and I need to call SNL(monster).
