Thanks!

My suspension really is not setup anywhere near correct... the shop that did my alignment previously basically lied and never even touched it. I still have positive camber in the rear and the ride height is not setup correctly. I'm just going to wait and get some awesome camber plates to replace the group n mounts then drop it off at TIC to get corner balanced and aligned in the early spring. That should help a little bit, haha.

I think I'm going to go with a South Bend clutch... but I'm not sure if I should keep the RS transmission in it now. I feel like there is a chance I'll buy this awesome clutch then break the transmission. I love the RS transmission gears though and have all of the shifter stuff upgraded.

If you want it to be a racecar, quit buying parts for the car, and start buying tools to make it faster.

Like corner scales. And a camber gauge. And the tools for a string alignment.

I plan on doing that when I have my own garage

Thanks, I appreciate it! You are more than welcome to check it out if you ever visit Cincy. Hopefully the warm weather comes early so I can get the clutch and flywheel replaced. It'll be nice to experience the car with a full boost tune and a non-slipping clutch, haha
