So some idiot kids walked in front of me, really slowly... I got fed up with their crap and loaded up 1st gear and dumped the clutch and lit my tires up, go to shift into second gear and it wouldn't grab until i pumped the clutch several times... Now when i go to use 1st gear, it feels like it's blocked off... I managed to force it into gear and got it to slide in and out a few times but I can feel that something is slowing the transition. Have to work tomorrow so I'll see if it acts up or resolves itself, has before...

Didn't rev. Loaded rpms up and dropped the clutch. nothing but a giant cloud of wheel smoke :)

Car is totaled. Looking at buying a 1994 Rx-7...

I'm ready to get back into drifting. Fwd is fun and has it advantages, I just enjoy getting sideways too much... Got my eyes set on an audi in the future ;)

Puddle of water. Ran threw it and it submerged my intercooler half way up. Basically about a foot and a half of the car was under water. Real bad storm here, couldn't see...

dam man that sucks i would be so mad idk what i would do
what kinda intercooler did u have on it and did it make a good gain in power
I just had an ebay cooler, i wasn't looking for power. Just wanted to stop the heatsoak and man it did that. For a few weeks the car worked perfectly in sink. I could run hotlaps for about 40 minutes and the intake manifold was cool to the touch. As far as power gains, with a smaller intercooler you can pretty much count on anywhere from 5-15whp. Just depends on the dimensions and airflow to it.
