real stiff, like you feel it in the calves at first stiff. but after 6 hours driving down here ive gotten used to it. there's alot more chatter from this one compared to OEM but i knew that going into this. at first i hated the new clutch, it was way too easy to stall. but now that the edges have rounded a bit on the disk it engages smoother. everything feels really good and tight, the hurst and this clutch go hand in hand.

havent met daniel at coastal yet but his work is very clean. im still pretty set on BTF gear, dirt designs is a close second mainly because of price, but i feel the BTF kit just looks cleaner when its all said and done. im just so done with the lower ball joint, the stock spec steering, and the stock lower arm all together. if my plan goes alright, i should have at least $1500 to put towards a good kit within 2 weeks (starting at $0 now). gonna sell off some parts etc to fund it. i will probably get the MT kit and call it good till i have a degree.

I can't wait to see it once it's all come together.
