They can't test drive it without a clutch and I really don't feel like working on it at the moment.
So, again... we're NOT speaking about your D21, right?
I think you said an Audi, right?



For all who have responded, thinking this was about his truck...

Yes, Audi.



It's clutch hydraulics are exactly like a D21 with a damper bypass, just made of plastic.

PP is an upgraded unit specd for the 4.2L V8. Even with the clutch being stupid there is no slip from 35-110MPH in 6th. Just a nice strong pull and lots unhappiness at 35MPH as expected.

They ALWAYS have the floor jacks tied up, too. It's like Fast and the Furious around here every Sunday after church.









That just looks like fun! I'm almost as low as that Merc. Is that a V8 Biturbo Merc?

Unfortunately the D21 master is physically too large. On the Audi the master is in the pedal box inside the cabin.

C55 AMG with Superccharged V8. It WILL throw you back in the seat and hold you there. That car teleports.
Belongs to my youngest son. He has a couple others that he is more fond of at the moment, so once he has the AMG detailed out, it will be for sale. It's a beautiful car. Not advertised yet, but soon. It could be yours.

You start it and it raises to whatever ride height you want.


He sold the black Merc wagon in the background last week. Then he brought home a turbo diesel, so I am STILL down one parking spot in my driveway. LOL
