Ok, so I got sick of having to pull the clutch in and having to change gears. I am a little lazy I guess.
I decided to try out some ATF out in the gearbox.
What a difference! Holy shit, this stuff actually worked!
No more having to pull the clutch in.
Just drop it in gear and go. It even shifts! No need to let off on the throttle. Just rip down the road.
My quater mile times have dropped too!

that shit is the bomb

Just pull your clutch and all tranny parts out. You will save a lot more wieght that way.

I have tried using a variable speed drive (VSD) instead of a gearbox, advantages are no gear changes, less weight, variable torque settings via push button plc controlled logic centre. Disadvantages include complex fitting and 110/240/415v power required (but there is a mod to fix that)

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I'm sure (I hope anyways) you realize if you drain the oil out of the tranny to have a dry clutch, that will also drain all the motor oil in the engine. To do the dry clutch mod, you also have to remove the piston rings themselves. That way air can still act as a lubricant between your pistons and cylinder walls.
