had the penquin plate in my car for about 10 minutes....took it off and put it in the garbage. sorry you wasted your money on it like i did. the fit was bad, the parts were not cut well, the received ended up too close to the chassis.

I used to use penguin carbon upper deck but I have just bought myself a 5 star upper deck. Workmanship is much better on the 5 star one and fitting is perfect dont need to tweak and push to get all the nuts and bolt to screw in properly. The best thing is on the receiver tray, it has a seperate carbon fiber tray for the receiver and it is suspended below the deck itself have more room to work on all those wires also it drops the CG a little lower since you can mount the receiver lower than the penguin one(granted it's not much of a difference, but still!

Workmanship is just top notch! kind of piss at myself how come I didnt get this one to begin with?????????

Default Carbon brake pad help....

I've just bought the Penguin carbon brake disk and was wondering do I have to remove the current brake pads or??

Also I have been running black clutch shoes with 1.1mm spring for awhile without any problems. But recently I've broken 3 spring in 3 weeks. Then in a pinch I replaced them with the .9mm black ones and then my engine shuts down around corners etc....

Any info would be awesome....

Thanks,

Andy

Yes you need to remove the brake pads since the carbon brake is much thicker than the stock metal one. you can use razor blade to shave it off then use a dremal to grind it down. or you can flip the right to the left and left to the right then you have a brand new brake pad.

Default Kawahara Clutch

Hi Guys,

First I hope everybody has a Happy & Safe holiday.

I just put the cart before the horse, as it were.

I ordered a Kawahara clutch from Steve in Speedtech.

Now I'm asking what do people think of it?

How does it compare to the Centex?

Any tips on setting it up.


All the best

They are 2 different things, Centex Clutch is the engine clutch, and Kawahara clutch is the second speed clutch!

Where are you at? in State or somewhere else? The one that I got is from a LHS if you are in state I could ask them to order one for you!

Let me know if I can help!

No I did not use any rtv sealant, in fact didnt use any at all, just made sure I used a brand new gasket then do the 1 3 2 4 sequence to torque it down, I did that very carefully because the housing is aluminum, they are easy to bent or the shape torque out of whack easily! IMHO, need to be really carefully when you torque it down!
