    FS: Redfire ‘03 Convertible, 33,300 miles, 654RWHP/572TQ, Chicago, IL

    Here's a video of a cold start (after sitting for a month) and a couple quick revs. Sorry for the neighbor's hammer noise in the background at times.

    FS: Redfire ‘03 Convertible, 33,300 miles, 654RWHP/572TQ, Chicago, IL

    UPDATE - SOLD! I’m regretfully selling this car after 9 years of love. My son is almost 2 years old and I rarely have a chance to drive it anymore. The farthest it went this year was to have it professionally ceramic coated about a half hour away :( . I’ve owned the car since June 2011...

    FS: Brand New Unopened Full Tilt Boogie Racing (FTBR) IRS Upgrade Kit

    UPDATE: SOLD. I bought the kit in 2017 with the intention of installing it over the next winter. We moved and then had a kid instead, so that kit (among many other upgrades) have been put on a permanent hold. May even sell the car itself as it rarely gets driven anymore. The box has...

    Anyone else frustrated with Ford over the next GT500?

    This guy was probably checking out verlander when her pics leaked.

    4th Gear Synchro Problem

    I'm guessing this means that I can't just switch the 4th gear synchro from the big opening?

    4th Gear Synchro Problem

    When I changed input shafts, the 4th gear blocker ring did fall out. I didn't think much of it at the time, but I put it back how it fell out (I think). Should that have been able to happen? Could I have reinstalled it wrong? Would that create the problems I'm having?

    4th Gear Synchro Problem

    I switched from the 10-spline to a 26-spline input shaft when I changed my clutch. I spent a lot of time making sure the shims and end play were perfect, but now the trans grinds anytime I try to shift into 4th gear other than from a very slow speed. I talked to Tremec--and a shop that Tremec...

    McLeod RXT - 2nd Gear Downshift Trouble

    I ended up doing the same thing. No cutting but bottomed out. All good now. Thanks everyone!

    Factory T56 clutch pivot stud height?

    I'd estimate that the tip of the stock pivot ball is roughly 1.5". I just measured it this weekend.

    Install Tip for McLeod RXT twin disc clutch

    I recently installed a McLeod RXT twin disc clutch and new McLeod Aluminum Flywheel. Also installed a McLeod Clutch Quadrant and McLeod Firewall Adjuster. The previous setup was stock, and I did not change the stock pivot ball at that time. (Before the install, I had read on SVTP that with a...

    McLeod RXT - 2nd Gear Downshift Trouble

    Thanks again, Dave. I have McLeod's pivot ball sitting on my workbench. I'll do the same once I figure out the length. I thought it was perfect, but I can tell the clutch still slips and is not fully engaged, which I believe is from the TOB putting a little pressure on the clutch fingers...

    McLeod RXT - 2nd Gear Downshift Trouble

    Thanks, Dave. How did you shorten the pivot ball... can you really just screw it in more, or did you remove it cut it and reinstall it, or did you buy a new one that was already short?

    McLeod RXT - 2nd Gear Downshift Trouble

    I have an adjustable pivot ball but did not install it yet. Did you have to adjust your pivot ball in or out?

    McLeod RXT - 2nd Gear Downshift Trouble

    Update: I drove it around some more. I'm not sure what changed, but all of the sudden, everything works perfectly. Not sure if something settled, or the synchro rattled into place over a bump, but it's working like normal. Two final questions... 1. which way would I adjust the pivot ball...

    McLeod RXT - 2nd Gear Downshift Trouble

    Not sure if it’ll help, but here are some pictures. These pictures are taken with the firewall adjuster about ½” away from the firewall. It appears to me that the TOB is touching (I’m not sure how “lightly”) the clutch fingers. In this position, the clutch fork is laying (pressing?)...

    McLeod RXT - 2nd Gear Downshift Trouble

    Should it be releasing at the very top? No. No trouble with anything (except clutch slipping) before this project.

    McLeod RXT - 2nd Gear Downshift Trouble

    Hi guys. Thanks for the replies. I tried adjusting the firewall adjuster to 1/4" - 1/2" away from the firewall. That appeared to make things worse. Shifting was more difficult all around. McLeod suggested that it's a problem with the shift gate or the 2nd gear synchro. Before I go about...
