Dang, that's the definition of being a trooper right there. Hope it's smooth (or at least smoother) sailing from here on out man. I thought Gintani has a stage three car running DCT though? I wonder if there were similar clutch issues?

Thanks man, Eugene said that car had the clutch and was running, other than what he said, I don't know the specifics and I have not seen any info or video's posted on that car.

God speed man. Any chances of you doing some runs with the stock clutch or would it just fry that one as well?

Had to work Friday and did not get to Vegas until Sat at 6pm, in fact I didn't even make any of the Mfest events. The transmission software is still being worked on, so I was not able to pick up the car yet either. I did have a nice time at dinner with Roman, Jamie (M33), Robert (PG) and a few good friends from Vegas. Hope to have the car this week.

Just spoke to Roman and the car is ready. They uploaded a new version of DCT software, and it took some time, hence the reason I did not pick up the car at Mfest. I couldn't have driven at the drag or tuner challenge events anyway, as I had to work. The car will be at the next Shift-S3ctor track, and side by side racing event though.

It's been a long journey, especially with the tranny / clutch situation, it really set us back quite a bit, as the car would have been done months ago, regardless Roman and his team did a phenomanal job, they worked incredibly hard, and on weekends at times as well, but now everything is dialed in right, thanks Roman and AJ! Can't wait to drive it.
