Quite the opposite is true William, I have the highest respect for Mike. Mike and Barry B. are by far the most approachable and helpful guys I have met in my time in the US.
I'm really just flabbergasted why the wouldn't try to find a clutch shoe that works instead of basically throwing his WC chances out the window because of such a penny part.
Btw, this is what I posted on the Xray thread regarding Mike:

Have you been to any races lately, or at all?
I would think his nick name comes from races like the 2004 Winternationals, where he won the 1 hour sedan final, got back on the stand and won the 1hour 1/8th final as well. I was there it was VERY impressive.
Or maybe the WC in Lostallo, where he drove an absolute brilliant race and became vice champion.
Oh wait, that was all with Mugen!
Then you should probably go with the only win this RX8 has to show: Swaugzilla in Ft.Myers.
Maybe it's not Mike that is not on top of his game, but the car???
I guess Mike is gonna give you a big hug for that mindless comment of yours"
