Re: Clutch lever

Sometimes the circlip groove is very warn or the clip your using has seen better days and they'll pop off during a race. Many transaxles I've used have had a small hole drilled through the lever and the shaft with a nut and bolt added for safety. In a pinch at a track a few tack welds from a mig wil...

Re: Brakes - drums -> discs

If FV changed to the VW disk brake beam, wouldn't that also mean everyone switching to a different rim? Except for the aftermarket stuff, I'm not sure VW made a disk brake rotor for the 5 wide rims?

Re: November minutes

I agree to leave the FV class alone, all you'll do is cost everyone more money and lose racers in the long run. If the supply is getting short for Link Pin beams, just change the rules to accept aftermarket ones. They've been building them for years for off-road use. Brand new center for $195! and w...

Check for leaks, if none exit. It could be a bad slave cylinder. I had a similar problem when my clutch slave cylinder went bad a few years back. Fluid was leaking past the seal and would build up back pressure. In the attached picture, unscrew the shaft on the non boot side of the slave, if you fin...
