    Well I only see him driving the RZR these days, so the CVT may be growing on him!

    Though I will say the thing I miss most about my old car is running through the gears. There's really no substitute for those full throttle shifts with a pissed off hayabusa right behind you.

    I already have a CVT golf cart. Plus, I really want flappy paddle solenoid shifting. The CVT is super nice for cruising and technical stuff though.

    The only thing I'm driving lately is the TV remote. Being hurt sucks! I did go to the shop to look at my car today though. It made me sad...

    Still on for Saturday? I want to look over the taz a bit better while I'm there. Most of the drive home I didn't even realize it was behind us due to the pain killers!

    Congrats on the new ride. I was always torn between CVT and shifting the MC gearboxes. Both have their upsides and downsides. Ultimately for me, it comes down to which one is more reliable and up to the task in the dez. Which one can you trust when you are 50 miles from anything? I am still not sure. The STM clutches really woke mine up and I never changed a belt after I put them on up to when I sold it. They were pricey, but I am fairly certain that the 2.4 eco with the STM/RPM was a little quicker accelerating than my ZX14 in the same car was despite being a little heavier. The ZX14 sounded awesome while you were in it though.

    Good to hear about the clutch, I need to focus on that for the upcoming season. Richard had warned me the clutch needed to be tuned, so performance isn't quite there yet. I bought a book on tuning clutches, now I need to open it! Running a comet clutch right now, but will check out the STM clutches as well.

    Do you remember what RPM gearing you were running with the ecotec? And what tire size?

    Haha, well my parents were nice enough to leave their trailer in San Diego for me...not sure that conversation would go well

    Jesse showed us your new website last night, looking good! Hoping the yamaha business is going well for you.

    If I'd kept the Dez, STM clutching was the next step.

    I don't remember the exact ratio I put in the RPM. I think 8:1 but not positive. I was running 33" Yoko super diggers on it.

    Cool, looks like STM is the way to go. Will give them a call.

    Thanks Stand, I believe the Tazcar is also 8:1. It's running 33s as well.
