    How to drive faster!

    Genegenie - That's good advise. Smooth is key.

    How to drive faster!

    Yeah, but you have to remember the throttle angle you applied to gain speed in 1st will also determine how quickly the fuel burn-off completes and rev begins to drop. How you shift 1-2 also depends greatly on how smoothly you came off the line. You are literally building speed off the...

    How to drive faster!

    No slip because while I am clutching-in and shifting the lever, RPM is already dropping down into 2nd gear range so I would just begin clutching-out with slight throttle to assist the flywheel's momentum. If you pause your RPM will drop too low.

    How to drive faster!

    Another thing that might help you is try to press the gas pedal closer to the arch (center) of your foot instead of by your toes. That will give you finer control if your foot muscle is tired or has not fully developed for MT driving.

    How to drive faster!

    No, neither a pause nor slip. After 1st gear rev to say 4K RPM, just shift and then begin clutch-out in constant motion with slight throttle, then apply throttle exponentially when 2nd gear is fully engaged. That might be why you're getting the jerkiness. The only time I slip the clutch is...

    LOL hahaha! I've seen some folks making coin slots in their tow eye covers and mounting straps through them. That's also a nice clean finish. I think Raceseng has pictures of both on their site

    The reality of mods and warranties

    Gotta pay to play. I'm perfectly fine paying for repairs if my warranty was voided. First off, I hate letting dealers touch my cars after taking ownership. If it's a recall, then I would take the car back to the dealer if it's something I cannot fix on my own.

    That's cool. I have a 3D printed front plate holder on that side of my bumper so I was thinking I would just do the rear tow hook if I was going to do it. I would buy a spare tow eye cover, drill through it, and mount the post through that for a nice clean finish.. well, that was the idea.

    How to drive faster!

    So dtran11 - Were you able to figure things out at least a little bit? Clutch-out between 1-2, 2-3, etc is a consistent process. There is no reason to pause the clutch-out in the middle of the throw. It will make it more difficult for you as now you're adding another variable to your...

    Golfs everyday.. with OT journal.

    Yeah, I have a COBB emblem on the gate so maybe that is enough free advertisement for them.. haha I think the top drooping line of my stripe on the rear door also forces the eyes to look downward and when there is a bright white logo there it just points the eyes to the wrong direction. It...

    Golfs everyday.. with OT journal.

    Yeah, that is kind of my worry.. I think the tow hook would go well with the theme, but might draw the wrong attention or focus. Speaking of your Raceseng knob on your R, did you swap out the boot as well? I agree, their knobs are great.

    Golfs everyday.. with OT journal.

    So what is the consensus for tow hooks on our Golf's? Too rice? I think I want to get a Raceseng tow hook (red with black post) on the rear.. I run their shift knob on my WRX and they are high quality. I've never considered tow hooks or straps on my WRX nor STI, but my Golf-R is kind of...

    Very Belated Oryx White Golf R Build

    Sorry to see on your bent wheel. Can you get that fixed and use as a spare? I too bent an OZ wheel a few yrs ago on my GTI and the DWS06 on that wheel was fine. Insurance paid for a new wheel with tire however as the set was still fairly new and they thought it would be safer.
