As you might have seen, on February 10th my ’08 Volkswagen Rabbit, Trinity decided she didn’t really want to use her stock clutch and throwout bearing any more. I had the car taken to my friends at EF1 Motorsports in Signal Hill, CA and called up Four Season Tuning over in Orange, CA to source a replacement. Four Season Tuning shipped me a VR6 single mass flywheel and clutch kit while EF1 Motorsports did the work. It took two days to do the work but was well worth it, I can definitely tell that the car can put more of it’s power to the wheels then before and the clutch pressure seams more responsive when depressed and finding “the ball.” I highly suggest this upgrade if your looking for something more and happen to have your clutch go out. As an added bonus this kit was just over half the price of a factory replacement clutch kit.
Well, today I am announcing a new project that was brought up to me yesterday in my 203 drafting class. My teacher would like me to start on bringing in and modeling the H-4 Hercules “Spruce Goose”. After I bring it into CAD I will be making changes to turn it into a laser cut model and then adapting that into a R/C model.
Here’s a first look at the importing process.
My recent post referenced the classic DMC Delorean but thinking about it I was wondering if anyone was working on a new car for the brand. Since someone in Texas recently bought the rights and all the molds to make “New” DMC Deloreans (website can be found Here.) from a combination of old and new parts. The following is an artists rendering of a concept for a contemporary remake. And boy do I wish they would put it into production.
