    • 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.

        No, I would much prefer phone calls asking them when my car would be done and that people would like to see it.

        If I call Sticky will never get his damn car back completed. I am a ruthless mother $#@!er and I will call those $#@!es at gintani out in a $#@!ing heartbeat. They might be able to pull the wool over Sticky's eyes but I have been around the block a couple more times than him. I bet his car does not go down a track for another three months.

        Do you really think Sticky is going to drag his candy ass out to Chicago? If I had a dollar for every time somebody on one of these forums said they were going to come to Chicago to race me....I usually have to end up treking my $#@! across the country to get something to go down. My CLK has been at Weistec since early November and it is coming home in April, I can't help Sticky's car still is not done.

        ...next Friday they will have another excuse and so on and so forth

        Look on the bright side Sticky, the longer they don;t have your junk heap done the longer you will be able to hold on to your $1000
