    I ordered up a new Mcleod RXT Twin Disc, 26 spline input shaft, Throw Out Bearing Retainer Sleeve, FRPP Throw Out Bearing, Pilot Bearing, etc... from Lethal Performance. :rockon:

    Pulled the trans out yesterday to get things ready.

    Will follow up with more pics as things progress.

    I call BS.

    You don't install anything that can't be polished or waxed........

    Actually it is the RXT with the lightened steel flywheel that I am going to get.

    Thanks. :beer:

    :beer:

    Awesome. I'm sure you will be happy with it.

    Thanks Carlos. :beer:

    Will do Marc.

    Good to hear. Thanks for the info. :beer:

    :lol::lol: Give me a shout tomorrow if you get a chance.

    Yeah, I figured the RST holds 800 HP. The T56 is only rated to like 450 anyway. I see no use going RXT unless all I did was go to the track and make pass after pass. My car see's street duty only so the driveability means everything to me. I hope it is as nice as everyone says it is.

    That sounds like a good track combo. The steel flwywheel would help with inertia.

    I got the clutch and flywheel removed and all looked great surprisingly.

    Here's a quick pic of the stock 10 spline input shaft that will be going away in favor of the 26 spline.

    And the stock clutch wich served it's duty well.

    when i installed my 26 spline before i put it on the trans, i used it to line up the clutch, works better then the little $5 tool

    Good luck with the clutch install and all the other goodies! Your car is by far the cleanest Cobra I've ever seen. Flat out awesome. Great job.
