    But... but... I... but...

    Are they different? I can't imagine owning two pairs of the same shoes, let alone two of the same cars.

    The SO wanted to do a quick photoshoot of us stuffing four cars into a West coast sized three car garage (ie. ~680sq ft).

    Before I attempted to do so, jotted down some widths and lengths of the...

    It shouldn't.

    a Throw out bearing (TOB) doesn't make any physical contact with the clutch, or the flywheel, or the input shaft. There's usually a guide that the TOB slides on in the gearbox, but...

    Thank you!


    After I went back in the car, removed the shifter assembly and started poking around in the gearbox and found a black plastic bushing. Must have popped off when I was reinstalling.

  7. Shifter assembly -- removed and reinstalled, feels sloppier.

    I had removed the shifter assembly to pull the drivetrain (the absolute most anxiety-ridden drivetrain pull I've ever done, because of the front cowl), and have since reinstalled.

    It feels much...

    The only good thing about Doug Demuro is his "features" part of his videos. A 7 has none, which leaves the driving part of his videos.
    Watching him drive cars on the street is pretty bland and...

    7s dimensions -- maybe a repository?

    Recently parked our Superformance S1 next to a Lotus Elise and noticed that our car was actually wider, surprisingly.
    Was wondering what the widths are of all the other 7s are, as well as any other...

    Basically what I did.
    Skip to the last 10 minutes. I get to see what cars are involved, who wins, and then determine if the episode was interesting to watch.

    This exactly.

    The wiring to the relays are pretty basic and what I'd expect for a DIYer or a quick fix. It'll work, but it doesn't look like what one would pay someone $125/hr to make.

    While those relays and wiring will be perfectly fine... I would hate to have paid $125/hr for someone to have my wiring look like that. Looks very backyard mechanic.
