brusk replied to the thread Calling all spec 3+ owners.
" I've had my 3+ in for a few months and have about 1200 normal miles along with a road trip 750 miles each way and I'm honestly thinking of taking the clutch out. Now that it's warm the gear noise with the AC is just really annoying. I have chatter in reverse that I think I've mostly overcome with more RPM's and slipping but the chatter from constant stop and go traffic can get annoying, the hotter the clutch gets the harder it is to get a smooth engagement. My engagement point is halfway but have to have the clutch pedal to the floor completely for a 1-2 shift. Personally I think I should have either went with the 2+ or possibly the IS clutch but maybe some more mileage and abuse it will get better. "

spool twice replied to the thread This is the 2015 F82 M4 S55 twin turbo inline-6 startup and exhaust note sound.
" sounds awful for an inline 6, but im willing to bet that tinny and insubstantial sound is the result of the placement of high-flow metallic primary cats. Its like the USDM S54; once you remove the primaries and install headers, that buzzy/thin/boring sounding exhaust note turns into a high winding shriek. "

Sticky created the thread F1 2014 - Another Grand Prix, another Mercedes victory - Mercedes AMG Petronas finishes 1-2 at the Chinese Grand Prix.
" Mercedes AMG success continued in Shanghai where the team finished 1-2 for their fourth consecutive victory and third consecutive 1-2 finish. Lewis Hamilton took the win followed by teammate Nico Rosberg. Mercedes is simply dominating the 2014 Formula 1 season at this point and everyone is left wondering who it will be who may challenge them. It looks like Ferrari and Red Bull Racing are both improving and looking to challenge Mercedes' dominance.


Ferrari took the third spot on the podium thanks to superb driving from Fernando Alonso which kept Red Bull Racing off the podium. Alonso was followed by Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull Racing who finished in 4th and 5th respectively. Sebastian Vettel is not used to losing and certainly not to his teammates which has him a bit frustrated. He says he does not understand his lack of pace and that he seems to be fighting his car.

Hamilton moves four points behind Rosberg for the championship. These two will continue to battle and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. For now both have a commanding lead in the points.

The full breakdown along with the results and standings is below. "

This clutch does engage pretty high but I do not mind it at all. It does still shudder when I reverse and am trying to slip it lightly, I am wanting to hear from other users if this is the norm? I have found the best way to creep in reverse is to engage it slightly then press in the clutch, repeating this movement right at the threshold of engagement instead of just letting it slip like you would with a stick unit.

The shudder gets annoying during the break in period. If you slip the clutch a bit it'll help. After 600-700 city miles with lots of downshifting do a few hard launches. My 3+ feels smoother after spirited driving. "

Sticky created the thread The first race to feature the Toyota TS 040, Porsche 919, and Audi R-18 E-Tron LMP1 cars has Toyota winning at the 6 Hours of Silverstone.
" LMP1 racing is very competitive this year with Toyota, Porsche, and Audi all competing against one another with the ultimate goal of taking the 24 Hour of Le Mans title. This past weekend the 6 Hours of Silverstone was the first race of the season to feature all three cars going up against one another. The 6 Hours of Silverstone also marks the first race of the season for the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship.


Toyota's TS 040 car impressed to the say the least. Not only did Toyota get the overall win but they had an impressive 1-2 finish. The Porsche 919 Hybrid made its debut and got on the podium with a third place finish. The second Porsche 919 Hybrid finished sixth in its class but 24th overall.

So what about Audi? The twin R18 Quattro's set a blistering pace but Audi made a large gamble that did not pay off. The number 2 R18 E-Tron Quattro had the fastest lap of the LMP1 cars but when a few spots of rain started to come down Audi decided to take the chance and have both cars continue running on their softer tires whereas Toyota and Porsche brought their cars in for a change to rain slicks.

The number 1 R18 slid off the track and crashed. It was not so badly damaged that it could not return to the pits but it did finish in last place in the LMP1 class. Porsche also suffered a problem in the conditions as the number 14 Porsche 919 lost its front left wheel. For whatever reason Audi refused to change their tires and the second R18 also slid into the gravel. Neither Audi finished the race which is the first time an Audi LMP1 car has failed to finish since 2011. "
