Well, my car did have the original clutch in it, and when I tell you this thing was cooked..... I mean cooked. I honesty can't believe it moved. The clamping force of the pressure plate from 15 years of use was just gone, so with the new one in, it just felt like a completely different car. Can't wait for the break in period to be over.

Spent the weekend exploring Gotenba! Drove up, down, and around Fuji. Visited lake Yamanakako for a few hours and got some amazing photos.

Duwel, I need some of your expert advise. As much as I love the car, it's an absolute pig when it comes to getting it in gear. I'm constantly missing gears because it such a slop box. What are some things I can do?
