    Silly little update...

    Last weekend, I had some preventative maintenance done in preparation for this year's trip to the Dragon. New clutch, flywheel, Quaife LSD (to replace the factory one), new OEM slave, rear main seal along with the other gearbox seals around the axles installed.

    It is going to take a bit getting used to the OEM slave again after having Colin's S10 mod in for the past couple years... but after having a couple of leak issues with those things, I figured it was time to go back to OEM.

    Haven't had time yet to feel/notice the difference in the differential... But at least I don't need to worry about whether or not the factory one is still biting anymore.

    Now, it would just be nice if Mother Nature would make up her mind about temperatures already. Enough with the 2 and 3 day cock-teases in the 60s, only to go back to highs in the 30s for the next 3 to 5 days. I just want to get these damn snow tires off already.
