I'm just gonna wait till they're at a car show near me and they can view it there, that's after I repair the second clutch I've blown in recent times
How'd you blow the clutch Jim, that takes some effort...usually hard driving

Chris, blew 2 clutches in the same spot, at a similar time of day

Both clutches were the same, both folded the spring straps on the diaphragm. I have been driving high hp stick cars for years and never done this before.

I am moving to a different style this time, hopefully keep it together long enough to get a tune into my E85 carb

I've only ever blown one clutch, it wasn't even a high powered car, but it was really hard driving through U turn windy roads uphill and downhill. For those in NSW it was Galston Gorge. I drove it every day really early morning to go get the train in Hornsby. I drove it hard, my record sign to sign from one side to the other was 7 mins. Driving at signed speed limits it was a 25-27 min drive. That killed my clutch...that was 1993 in a brand new Suzuki Swift GTi which I still rate as one of my fav all time cars. That thing was a little rocket ship.

Anymore feedback on this subject?

I rang Shannon's a few weeks a go trying to organise a "viewing" at an event and the guy I spoke with said it would be easier to email pics and documentation........so I did, about a week ago but haven't heard back.

Prior to sending the info to them my missus rang to confirm address to send to, chick at the other end says "you do know that you can organise a viewing at an event"

I'll give the dicks another week and then I'll call.

Yeah moved up here 8 months ago Jim. Wife been wanting to do 20 years, I finally lost the battle. I'd prefer to still be down there. She'll be right, frame not bent so it will get sorted.

So in under 9 days quote approved through preferred repairer. Constant updates in progress by SMS. In fact the slowest part was me getting parts quotes from the US. Awesome to deal with so far. I’m all approved to get the car fully repaired once I get back from a month of travels. This really couldn’t have been any easier. Other than the whiplash I’m still dealing with now. 12 days since accident. Still killer sore back neck and constant headache.

Good to hear about the repairs mate. I switched to them last time you mentioned them but was quietly apprehensive if they’d pay out properly. Hopefully you get rid of your injuries soon mate.
