    Ah, that makes sense. Right now, it does engage right off the floor but it still has all that travel to get there. I didnt mess with the slave. My reservoir was empty and the pedal was super spongy so I went on a whim and just replaced the MC hoping that is/was the issue....lol

    It never ends......


    Took the car to the track for a shake down. Clutch works great....found new issue.


    Clutch packs in the rear are worn out. Not a hard or expensive fix but if I want traction I gotta do it.

    The LCAs shouldn’t be doing that , if anything, it should improving the traction and hop situation.

    True IF I didn’t lower the car too. I looked into it - the angle is wrong if I don’t ‘relocate’ the arm to about the stock angle or even more aggressive if I want more bite and don’t mind a harsher ride.

    no matter your ride height your pinon angle needs to be set to -2 degrees while suspension is under load.

    1998 Pontiac Trans Am

    Changing the CV axles on my daily driver and checking into a smoking turbo problem so had to daily drive the baby for a week. Ran errands around town. Home to Auto parts store 5 miles away. Then to grab a bite to eat a mile away. Then another 4 miles to get my son from school. He loved that and being in the land of Tesla and Hybrids I caused a lot of heartache with parents and perhaps corrupted a few kids. From there drove 5 miles back to the parts store because the seal I needed came in and then the 5 miles home. All in all I did 20 miles of city driving. Might I add I do have to warm the car up in the morning for 30 minutes. Race car needs long warm up time. So in 1 day of city driving and doing errands I burned half a tank of gas. I believe my true gas mileage is 2-3 City/6 Hwy

    A/F doesn't drop below 11.4 but with dual 340 pumps and 127# injectors it's a lot of fuel!

    02 TransAm Ramair WS6

    went auto X'ing with the local Porsche club Sat. That is so much fun .. got 6 runs in. Out of 80 cars I ran about mid pack. Not too shabby considering the track only cars that were there and the high $$$ Porsches. A damn Miata took fastest time of the day !! I need a brake upgrade and an UMI K-member to get some weight off the front.

    Why do people think Cali gas is watered down? I just came back from visiting my mom in Cali, and I got way better fuel mileage on Cali gas than I get at home. I ran 140 miles on the first 1/4 tank without even trying to be conservative. Normally, I can get between 100 and 110 miles on AZ gas before using the first 1/4 tank.

    Of course, you're in the Bay area there... how's the traffic? I was in Lancaster, and I took the I40 back to AZ (clear sailing all the way).

    What did you do with your Trans Am today?

    could also be from altitude differences.
