    Running engine with no rear wheels or suspension etc.

    Take te cv's and axles off. I ran on idle my GTM (successfully) with wheels on but... The oil friction in the transaxle caused the wheels to rotate. I applied the e brake and wheel rotation stopped, all was good. I believe your axles would try to rotate but no real power transmission unless...

    Joel’s SL-C Build Thread

    Your intake routing is similar to mine. What ID is that flex tubing? I will be using the area to the left side of the fuel tank (typically where fuel filters go) as my air filter chamber. I'll show pics when I can get out to the workshop again.

    New Tremec TR-9070 DCT in a SLC?

    Regarding your Graziano-based system, is the clutch controlled manually or automatically as in the Audi R Tronic?

    Joel. That was a lot of work. It is amazing what can be done with one of those drill mills. Well done.

    C8 Corvette Transaxle

    A Porsche G96 gearbox weighs approximately 175 lbs according to the CMS website. Does the new Vette twin clutch really weigh in the neighborhood of 675lbs? If the twin clutch came in at 300lbs you would only be gaining 125lbs.

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    I stand corrected. The Strano adaptor is steel. A magnet sticks to mine as well.

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    Stranos adaptors are aluminum whereas the Dulaney's are steel. Edit: Both Stranos and Dulaney are steel. See below for apology.
