Happy New Year!
Brakes are scheduled for January 14th. Was hoping to get them on before the end of 2020, but I didnít receive my calipers until the 28th of December. So I had to push my appointment back two weeks.




Clutch update:
We installed the ACT MOD-TWIN clutch. The pedal pressure is stock or slightly softer than stock. I didnít know how I felt about it at first. I was having a very hard time modulating it since itís so light. Was feeling a bit like a light switch on/off with no in between. I feel like it engages high maybe? But tough to tell since itís so light. I wanted to try something. I moved my seat back by one click and viola. I can now modulate it soo much better. It IS in fact engaging super high. Iím going to have R/T adjust it when I drop the car off for the brake install. Now that I feel like I can modulate it better, I am enjoying it so much more. What an amazing clutch, one that can handle 700lb-ft of torque and is stock pedal pressure. Iíve got about 100mi left on the break-in period and then I can resume my Sport Sharp pulls on e85.

I tried a tank of 93 while Iíve been in the break-in period on the clutch and Iíve come to the conclusion that 93 is not for me. Lol. Losing 100whp running 93 is definitely like driving a different car. Going to keep doing e85 with hopes more gas stations will start carrying it.

2020 was a great year overall for my build. I had a ton of delays and setback but overall achieved everything I set out to achieve. Was hoping for the brakes to be done but theyíll be the first thing on the docket for 2021.

2021 Plans:
Grimmspeed fender shrouds
Type RA brake install
Adjust clutch pedal engagement
Swain Tech thermal ceramic coat downpipe
Cusco chassis bracing
Leather wrap dash & door cards
New Hella Supertone Horns w/ Dress Up Bolts replacement screws
Audi RS3 rear wiper

Weíll see how things fall financially. The list might grow a bit. Hoping to pick up a used SUV at some point if we can find a clean one of what weíre looking for.
