I've been talking to a couple people about the clutch, as well as playing with it myself. TheMan says that switching to Motul brake fluid changed the way it works. I'm of the opinion that our...

Yeah, be careful with that thing. I've driven something like it as far as manners. I sold my Porsche 914 last fall. This was not your normal 914. It had a full slant nose, 930 turbo flares and...

The ignition advance table looked just exactly like it was coming from tables at WOT. That's what we've been saying though. The WOT calibrations are straight from look up tables with only slight...
