I replaced the slave earlier this year because it would grind when trying to shift into reverse.

Pretty sure about the SS line.

But I need you to enlighten me a bit about the billet bushing and speed bleeder. Tell me about these pieces and the risk if not having them and I will discuss with my shop.

I would do everything the shop says, I didn't have my manual long, but I did the Billet Release Bearing Support. The OEM is plastic, some had said it can melt and cause the slave to fail, I'm no expert here but I did it for 80bux to be safe. Your shop might have already did it.

The speed bleeder was just a convenience thing for me doing it myself, the slave bleeder is in a dumb spot imo, so this let me bleed the slave easily. It shouldn't need done a lot, but the separate fluid reservoir I installed was small, so I planned to change fluid more often but sold that one.

Thanks for the clarification. I read though your build thread this morning again. Quite impressive detail and would be great help to anyone planning to do work themselves.

Should I or shouldn't I . . . Very tempting to do this at same time with the new McLeod RXT Twin clutch. Expensive though!!

Hmmm.... very tempting indeed!!

If you were a street brawler like me I would say take your chances. But since you spend most of your time beating the crap out of it at the track I say go for it. There are plenty people that have gotten by without, but with your future goals in mind I think you will have to go there sooner or later.

Actually Mrimpala you got me all wrong

I may make it to the track twice/year and I usually only go if I have done work on the car that should make it considerably faster. My last track run was December 2016 during a track rental, so I am due to go back to see how the extra 150 hp will affect my ET.

I am thinking I will stick with the stock TR6060 for now. I am already a gambler (as you know) so I will make a few more rolls

Yes sir I knew about Tick because someone told me about them. My shop stands by RPM and even though a bit more expensive than Tick, when/if I do go to one of these monster trannies I will go with what my shop recommends. You gotta dance with the one that brought you!

Interesting approach they take. Onesie, twosie, you until the price begins to creep up there.

On the other hand, RPM just jams it home like Dr "J" use to do.

That sounds like a Dos Equis commercial.

"I don't usually go the track often, but when I do I shoot for 9's!"

And I guess this song does apply to us that like to ride the edge! LOL!

I have been happy with it so far! I've had it for about 6,000 miles. It's sometimes has very small amount of chatter taking off from a stop at low RPMS, but if you slip it a bit more it goes away. Overall it feels very close to stock.

Shop now has the McLeod Twin RXT and my Camaro goes in Monday for the install.

Supposed to give the new clutch ~ 500 miles of normal street driving.

I should probably ask for a clear definition of "normal" street driving, LOL!!
