I use Sleepers Speed Shop in Costa Mesa for my Aircooled cars and Mark at Hergesheimer for water cooled stuff.

Pictures to follow.

June 4th appointment.
Thanks. I was asking because I'm thinking about doing the Solution and the one local Indie that was certified, was only certified for the the regular bearing when I checked a year ago. I just checked again and they are now certified for the Solution too. I just hit two years of ownership and have been able to do all the work so far myself but the Solution is something I have no desire to attempt. The PO used this shop and they know the car so I will talk to them if I decide to go ahead.

Yes.

I have done my annual oil changes, preventive coils, sparkplugs, wp, coolant, Trans fluid, brakes and Fisters, but for IMSB figured the preferred installer premium was/is the way to go.

I am not a fan of the solution. Dont like the external oil line. LN bearing is more than enough for me.

This is why I'm still only thinking about it. That line is definitely the weak link in the system.

Sweet! What group sanctioned the track event? PCA, or other? Edit: never mind. I found this thing - the world wide web? Seems you can look up all kinds of things...

You should visit Thistle Hill this Saturday. The RallyCross will go off - rain or shine.

It's super high strength braided steel line. Plus, it's tucked away from anything that could snag it. Personally, it's one of the beauties of the IMS Solution.

I think autox is as much track time as they'll see. After a couple recent threads where folks have had their engines pop on the track despite taking all the proper precautions, I'm getting cold feet on the idea of track days. A $15k engine rebuild is not in the budget at the moment.

Picked up my car today after a week at the shop. LN IMS bearing, RMS, AOS, clutch and flywheel done. Shop said the clutch looked pretty beat so it was good that I replaced it, the new one feels great. Looking forward to the spring, summer and taking the hard top off.

Same here, I was going to do Harris Hill this weekend, nope!

I'll just keep driving the crap out of it back and forth to work! MANY smiles!

Yes, it was a RSR (rally sport region) PCA event, feel free to drop in, good group, lots of fun cars. Their signature event is the weekend of 6/15 at Grattan. Please share videos of the RallyCross!

I have several friends in that region. In fact, my boss is the Secretary.

I love Grattan. Great track.

Default Clifford security system ?


Found this to the right of the battery compartment in the frunk. Old Clifford security. Worried about removing and having the car be immobilized somehow!

Clip the zip tie and unplug the red wire spade. So if everything still works.
