My clutch is slipping. Do you think I can get away with and RST instead of an RXT. Currently on stock clutch and it has been working fine but now its showing some wear due to its age and perhaps HP levels. JPC recommends an RST at my power levels and for the durability on the MT82. I like what he's thinking and why not save a few hundred.

Jayman recommended the RXT but as a weekend worrier I would think the RST would be fine. Thoughts? I dont wanna blow money where I dont need to. I have to get it installed too as I dont feel comfortable doing so myself.



EDIT: Fuck it, just gonna go RXT. Do it right the first time
EDIT 2: Purchased McLeod RXT, Lightened Steel Flywheel, Slave Cylinder/ Throw out bearing, Stainless Clutch line, Pilot Bearing, Motul Brake fluid x 2

Sounds like I'll be getting one.

Hand washed it for the first time in 2 months or so. Treated all plastic trim and the tires with Sonax Plastic Trim Restorer. That stuff works miracles.

I installed a MMD rear decklid panel. Mine stated to delaminate and I liked the looks of the new panel. I also redid the PlastiDip on my hood louvers since one of them had a chip/tear from a rock.

I took two, they're not that great quality. The first is standard S5 camera, no filter. The second is a snapchat pic, no filter. I wonder why the difference in quality/vibrancy...

Yup, they make great products. I really really like PNS, will probably start doing that on my truck very soon since it's my daily. I'm gonna have to order up some more of their products this week.
