• 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.

        Not an $#@!...just a realist. He has been "hopeful" his car was going to be ready since Shift Sector last spring. It's comical at this point. His build and Gintani is the laughing stock of a lot of people. I have a 1000 plus HP car THAT RUNS, I have earned the right to talk $#@!.

        Laughing stock for them getting it right on their dime? What's wrong with that?

        No appreciation for the engineering involved? No appreciation for the time and money? Are you an enthusiast or just a hater?

        It was already posted, they are targeting starting it this week with break in next week. Relax with the negativity already, it's getting predictable.

        This is a different car than yours so there is no point bringing yours up. I'm happy with what is being done and excited so go rain on someone else's parade.

        If they record it great if not, oh well. Not really concerned with this.
