Re: Computer Out of Service

Did you get everything figured out?

I'd suggest that if you go to an SSD to get a Samsung. They come with software that will clone the original disk to the new one. I've swapped out countless drives with this method and it's easily the best $100-$200 that you'll spend on a computer.

Re: Event 3 after action

I learned that a nearly stock 40 year old car doesn't autocross well, but still had a great time.

Re: Who is staying in Bristol overnight Saturday between the school and our Sunday event?

There's a big cruise in that happens every Saturday night in Elizabethton. Could be a good opportunity to try and get more recruitment from the TRI area.

He mentioned he was thinking about going to a bigger wheel, but I didn't have a chance to get his number. Anyone have it?

The last one I changed had to be chiseled out too.

I even machined a custom size punch for grease / bread etc - didn't work...
I feel better knowing others have had similar troubles.

Did you try packing it full of grease and using a clutch alignment tool and a hammer?

Yeah, those didn't work. I was confident the bread trick would work, but it took a chisel to get the thing out.

I do not like that site at all.
For real? I'm a big fan of the site. I've had tons of fun at their local events. The only negative is the close proximity to the golf course.

Looks like the weather is taking a turn on us. I'm seeing anywhere between 50-70% chance of rain :/ Guess I'll get to test those BFGs in the wet.

Currently working on the 69 Corvette. Bought a new clutch and lightweight flywheel. During the install, found that the pilot bearing was shot.... spent about 4 hours cussing and throwing tools. Even made a trip to buy one of those pilot bearing pullers and still didn't get it out.
