GT clover 170 Q2
Join Date: Mar 2008
So after much deliberation and all the experience with my trials with other units i had an Autolusso fixed smf GTA clutch kit fitted yesterday. As you can imagine 3rd clutch in the space of a year i was apprehensive of the results. Well folks i need not have worried. When i took her for a drive i was over the moon. Oem pedal modulation and take up, no extra noise from the car at idle with the smf. The clutch pulls like a freight train. And the added bonus, i was aware of but not sure i would actually feel in the way the car drove. The way the car revs much freer with the much lighter smf, mid to high rev progression and acceleration seems faster than before. I could not have been happier on the drive home last night.
Final piece of my modding jigsaw in place, i have a dependable solid performing GT. I have to say Autolusso have been brilliant, always willing to discuss my modification ideas with excellent knowledge and guidance from Ned. One thing i respect about Autolusso is they get to know their customers, and understand what they want to achieve ultimately with their projects. From my point of view, it makes it such an enjoyable process to develop your machine, and hit and achieve the level you are after with your project.
So after 2 years of outlay, trials and tribulations finally i am at a great place with my GT. I won't kid you it has been testing at times. But now i am here, and how the car performs in every area, i can say it was all worth it. It was my dream with this car to create a great all round balanced machine. And i feel i have achieved this. All the big jobs having been done now. Sure i have lots more little jobs i want to do to her, buts its nice to know the major upgrades have now been addressed.
I still have to get her dyno'd and her map adjusted properly soon, what with the wmi and full stainless exhaust system having been fitted. I also had uprated motul brake fluid yesterday as i will be doing some track days this summer.
