And realistically. You need a little more then just a roll out burnout. Ill look for one of my videos

*edit* here is a decent shot of how I warm them up. We suffer from poor track prep.



sent from my galaxy s3. that would explain the errors.
Now that is a burnout! I need to get comfortable braking and pushing on the accelerator with my right foot. I already have the separate reservoir with good fluid. Fluid still looks clean. Car has 4,000 miles.

I have the relocation kit and have not put it on. I just don't see how this would help the problem. At least with the stock brake/clutch resevoir, you have a larger volume to help dissipate heat. The smaller GTO resevoir still gets dirty from the clutch dust, just like the stock setup.

Ill tell you it helped my problem.

Yes there is more of an overflow... but you then are getting a heat source from 5 places vs just 1.

Plus its easier to do a quick fluid change for just the clutch if needed. At the track I usually bring some fluid and a syringe to switch the fluid out.

Takes some practice. More trips out and you will be a pro.

I agree, I had it on and removed it. I replaced the brake fluid with DOT4, it's easy enough to replace when ever it starts getting dirty.

I feel the same way. Not entirely convinced of the value of the mod, but it was an easy mod and it couldn't hurt. Perhaps the Tick clutch line would help. But that is a clutch bleed.
