• DCT Build Part VIII - Putting it back together

      As of right now, the transmission is completed and the cooling system is in the process of being completed. Where we left off was the car being taken to SSP for the build of the cooling system. To make this all make sense we will not skip ahead, instead showing you each step. Here SSP is getting ready to put it together with the new clutch discs. They laid out all the parts and used 3d scanning equipment to record them to aid in the production of the parts. Everything was laid out to make sure the parts were clean and accounted for. Additionally, they were working on prototype viton seals for the transmission. The next update will have details on the cooling system.

        Why don't we just do a side bet on if it's ready or not for Shift-S3ctor?

        Hi 5
        Long time is relative. I just enjoy modifying BMW's and pushing platforms. There's people who do here.

        Better yet lets make a side bet on whether or not you can run it at Shift Sector without break-in excuses. Open up the barn door and let the scape goats out to graze.

        I can hear the excuses already.

        I don't understand I have been saying all along let's run. All I'm saying is run the cars when they are ready to run. Why would I risk a motor that you keep reminding how long has taken to satisfy your ego? That doesn't mean anything to me.

        Why would you even show up at the event if you can not run balls to the walls with it?

        That's like $#@!ing a chick but only being allowed to put the head in....complete waste of ones time.

        Pretty sure it was 2 to 1 and thats at a drags strip in the 1/4 mile, all bets were for a drag strip 1/4 mile...and after you run the CLK

        You flapped your jaws about the CLKs being more closely matched to your car, don't make me go digging for quotes.

        Why are you all of a sudden being a pussy about the CLK race?.

        Why are you all of a sudden being a pussy about honoring 5:1 on the C63 and saying neither of your cars would lose?

        I'm simply breaking my car in. Sorry my timetable doesn't fit you but once again I'm not going to be running high boost as I'm going to be testing the car out as well. How about I see how everything holds up then I push it ok?

        That girl in the pink is simply hot as hell and the girl in the red in that one pic is 5'0 and maybe 85 pounds with tits. There is a reason I got comped so much stuff. When we walked in... it was like we ran the hotel. I suppose my badass suit and expensive room helped.

        Well if and when Gintani is ever finally able to make combustion in all 8 cylinders in your car and you take your sweet ass time breaking it in like a little girl breaks in her tricycle and you can drag yourself and your car to Chicago maybe I will give you a race against the C but only after you run the CLK. My C is a road race car and I would not have a problem dialing in the suspension and putting on some DRs whilenit isn out in Californian but the idea of $#@!ing around with it once its home does not really appeal to me. You see I am fortunate enoug to have two BS's one for drag racing and one for road racing and I did it thst way so I would not have to worry about constantly switching set ups back and forth. Now you can call me stupid all you want but you are the stupid one if you can not realize my logic here. I am however very very excited about doing that 20 to 1 road race we discussed. shall we do that in two weeks at Willow? Order up those coil-overs tomorow, I do not want any excuses...we all know you have become the king of excuses as of late.

        I know you are probably upset that it will have taken over three years for Gintani to build you a car thst is a notch or two lower than the CLK, I would be upset too.
