Recently I had an issue with Clutch Slipping which I have covered in another thread, which you may refer to here :

http://www.gtrlife.c...t/#entry1229513

Just installed some new wheels and suspension parts, which you can refer to this thread for more details:

http://www.gtrlife.c...__fromsearch__1


Have not had a chance to really drive the car as I have some clutch slipping problems in addition to I had lost 2,4,6 gears recently with the P0797 code error.  What was the solution???????

Simple:  Bring Glen to Kuwait from Dodson Motorsports to upgrade to the Sportsman Package and have the lost gears issue resolved!!!!

Glenn arrived a few days ago and is working on upgrading over 10 local GTR's ranging from Superstock to Sportsman to Pro Max Packages.

I will be updating more pictures as we go along and am thinking of starting a new thread just for Glens visit.

Here are a few pictures of Glen Diagnosing my problem.  Initial results show that it is sensor related and not a blown seal (as was guessed earlier) for loss of even gear set.  Glen is impressed that I managed to blow 2 sensors (Line Pressure sensor and clutch pressure sensor) at the same time!!!  Lol...

Changster.... I am 100% confident we got the right man to do the job.  Glenn is such a great guy with tons of talent and much needed patience with amateurs like ourselves. 

 

Updates on the way.....

I know I'm just kiddin man! He's the godfather of the GR6. He's the one that taught everyone!! He was the first to do all sorts of R&D while racing the car right when the GTR came out. Everyone is grateful for his work.

HERE WE GO....

So Glenn started work on my clutch...  The guy is really a superb person to work with.  I spent the whole day with him and he was kind enough to allow me to watch every step of the way.  He was also kind enough to explain everything to me every step of the way!  I am very happy with the way things have turned out and I must say I cant wait to get to the track!!!

Here are some pictures for all of you to enjoy....
