Default McLeod RXT time

I'm just over 22k on the stock clutch with the 07 snake, mild tune and CAI. I was doing about 80 in 6th, went to pass and hammered the throttle only to have the RPM's shoot up to well over 5k and yet the car really did nothing. I stopped shortly after and sure enough, the light smell of burning clutch (almost exactly the same as overheated brakes if you're wondering). So, I've been letting the snake cools it's heals in the garage for about 2 weeks while I came to terms with having to do my first clutch ever in 30 years of driving.

After a reasonable amount of research, I just pulled the trigger on the AM McLeod RXT over the RST based on the input on the forums and despite the advice of my wallet. Haha. Also of course, pilot and throwout bearing. Now I just need to get my parts in, take it over to my mechanic and get on his agenda.

So the new RXT is installed and it's freaking amazing. Feels totally different. Much lighter, crisper, quieter. Seriously has transformed the car. Unfortunately, it has also transformed the car in that I only have about 488 miles left to go on the break in before I can hammer it, so I'm driving like a grandpa right now. But I'm super stoked and looking forward to cruising those miles and watching the odometer creep up to hammer time.
