    Question about spacers

    Def interested in this exact question, please post up anything that you find. I just installed my ultraleggera's with a drop, and wanting to put spacers on as well. I was looking at a 5mm front and the 8mm rear.

    Has anyone had their clutch replaced in Austin?

    if you decide you want to do the work yourself, let me know I'm down to help wrench, and could even host a wrenching party. An upgraded clutch is probably in my near future, and I wouldn't mind doing the work myself and save the 1200-1400 I've heard quoted.

    I just recently acquired a GTI from my late father. From what I can tell it's a stage 3 with an IS38. I don't know much about this chassis/setup/etc. Anything I need to keep an eye out for? And recommendations for local groups? Thanks!
