Quick car related update - I was hoping to get the clutch, mounts, and Fluidampr installed this week, but the mounts still haven't shipped. Apparently the Black Friday deal they were running depleted their stock. The are expected to ship sometime next week.

Not much of an update, but I'm still waiting on the mounts to ship. Apparently Black Forest Industries has been stringing along everyone since they oversold their stock. The latest update (from last Tuesday) was they would ship by the end of this week.

And on top of that, I've been having second thoughts about running the twin-disc I bought. There have been a few disc failures lately, and I do not want to deal with that crap. I've already got the RMA opened with the company I bought it from. Once they receive the clutch, they'll credit me so I can then apply it to a South Bend stage 3 daily, which has been proven reliable by a bunch of people. The downside is a slightly heavier clutch pedal and a bit more chatter, but that's a trade-off I'm willing to make. The other option is a Sachs 4-puck clutch with a stock dual mass flywheel, which holds much more torque, but I'm hesitant to run a puck clutch on a daily.

I actually don't mind the way the new FR-S looks, minus the horrible panel gaps. But, yeah...no
