More upgrades during the off season! :twisted:

All 4 gears now have the Dave Folts face plates! (Also upgraded to a Weddle 4.13 Ring and Pinion!)

Rev-6 twin disc clutch from Ron Lummus!

CO2 boost control!

...and I realized that I didn't show a pic of a lot of the new engine management stuff...

Do those Dave Folts face plates function a bit like a syncro ring?
some very nice kit you have there

Not exactly; they replace what would normally be the synchro ring, cone and hub. This allows full power speed shifting with less risk of failure and longer maintenance intervals. I still use the clutch, but don't lift on the throttle. :mrgreen:

Thank you! 8)
