The way things are going the race car will not be there. I requested a Shep 300M TX case in Oct-Nov last year, every time I call I'm told I'm at the top of the list, they should show up in a month, they put the order in for new gear sets in Dec, I won't miss the race season...
With no confidant ETA in sight. IT SUCKS!

In the event that the race car is not ready I’ll be bringing the 6266 powered Evo. I’m not sure what I events I will enter?

Also, I heard that Swifty might have sold his car! So much for the race.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Wow it's been a while since I posted on this thread. The trailer and car are tucked away for the winter. I took the battery and injectors out. I'll be sending the 2150's back to FIC for a clean and balance. It was an uneventful summer! I thought I popped the head gasket, but turned out to be a faulty radiator cap. That’s it!

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Well I took my evo to bir for the 4th of july. First pass down the track and I poped the clip out on the clutch... no good, I was running an exedy hd twin disc. I never expected to run this clutch with the power I make but is been holding well to this point. I just got the car back on the road, changed the clutch out for a qm gear drive. l also ripped apart the transmission to install a billet output tube.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

I forgot to review how the car drives with the new clutch. I had a dsm qm for many years, and it made so much noise it wasn't even funny. The new gear drive is barely noticeable and is slightly louder than the exedy. driveability is very similar too. I'm super happy.

Oh and I needed to machine some of the throw out bearing to get it back in spec. It was like 0 clearance, it should be around 0.144 of clearance. Others have commented about this too, and some have toasted thrust bearings due to not measuring!

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Up at pg on Friday I made a pass to check trap speed, not launching the car, went 10.6 @ 142. I'll only get 1 more chance at a full out pass, as I was warned by track officials. Got the 2 step all dialed in and I'm going to try to launch it. If the 60 feels good I'll run it out. It would be crazy if it went 9's!
