Here you go. He came, he dismantled, he left (quoted by his supervisor, Jonathan). Maybe, he will come again to re-assemble.

whats he doing this time? You guys should really let me know... you could meet at the garage and bang out the work on a lift... so he doesnt have to work off jack stands... that way he doesnt need to drive to RI, and you dont need to drive to the edge of MA or is he in NH?

We changed the tensioner because I was getting belt slip on the stock tensioner. We also installed the stage 3 segmented kevlar clutch and new ltwt flywheel. I found that a rear spring perch had broken so I am waiting for a replacement to come in.

Car will stay on stands for a couple more days and then it should be done. I can't wait. No more mods.

I only made a house call because Jonathan broke Georges car and he could not drive up, it would have saved at least a few hours if he came up though, less running around for tools and parts.

Kind of worked out for the best though because I am still waiting on a couple of parts so we did not have to put the car together. This way I did not tie up the Stig's garage.

Pete I actually prefer to do a clutch with the car on jackstands, that way I can just benchpress it in and out, instead of using my back.

Hey, never let it be said that the STIG prefers to do things the easy way. Although to be fair, I do have less tools than he has.

We had to send Jean and Jonathan out to get tools while we worked a couple of times.

No dave, i have all the tools you do... thats why I went ocd and took the car apart so you had to come to RI to fix it.
