sounds like a clutch problem
Having never clutch dropped a RWD 325, I'll take your word for it. You've probably seen the wet autox pics in my sig... I was dropping at 4000 in the rain, on all seasons. No wheel spin. :banghead:Dalton said:o yeah, 4000 is way to high to drop a 325, you'll spin and look like a retard, i wouldnt venture above 3000 if racing. maybe 4000 works for your Xi but not for 2 wheelers, we'll just strip our tires...
323and330ci said:its not a april fool, i'm serious. i did mentioned before about racing this ford thunderbird SC. so finally i got the chance to do it, well i won only half meter from him, not that much i thought 330ci could have done better, he got a good pull on second gear it's a auto too.
we raced 3 times to see if the result was accurate, so first pull i reved around 5000-5500rpm, once i drop the 1st gear the car spun on me, so the rev meter went all the way to 7000rpm because the car keep on spinning and i stayed there for few second too, i didn't pay attention how high i was reving. so when i drop to 2nd gear , the gear was in , but no grip at all . when i look at the rev meter i saw at 7000rpm range, right away i let go of the gas, the car rulled up a little i pulled over, once i pulled over the heavy burned smell. first i thought i fried the engine because 2nd gear was in, but no grip !!
when the rpm droped, then it went back to normal, does anyone know if that have to do with some safety transmission unlock when its to high reving ??
until today i still can smell the burn inside the car when i have the fan on . does anyone know if that smell is normal and will it go away after a while ?
today when i went to work (i work with this guy that i raced), when i enter the building some of my colleague told me that he keep on telling others that he smoked me !!!
dam we had a big argument, he said i lost because of the first race he said it's my fault for not able to handle the shifting, and then i asked him what about the 2nd and 3rd race, i smoked him, he said it doesn't count .
talk about one big @ss MOTER F!OCKER..........
that is not the pissed off part !!
he said we had a deal that HE WON !!!
i asked him, how the hell can we have a deal that you won when my car was a quarter car length. on that second i just wanted to punch him down !! argg..... :ben: :ben: :ben: :ben: :ben:
i just don't understand how a person can actually talk **** right infront of another person's face and BS that much !
i know all this sound very childish, but i think this is a principle issue and it's not a car issue anymore. me and him work together in a workshop .now i have to face this stupid lier everyday !!
NO WAY I WOULD CHOOSE HIM AS MY TEAM MATE IN FUTURE !
sorry for the lengthy letter..
