Interested to hear how you like it on the road. I don't dislike the C50 by any means, but I have found the 1-2, and somewhat the 2-3, shift to be a bit steep vs prior cars I've had; feels kinda like my truck.. lol.

Awesome job buddy! Looking forward to your reviews on a road course, especially with an LSD.

Thanks guys!

I'm feeling a bit dumb for not comparing the C60 gears to the C50, to see if we can swap them into a 5 speed. I do want to get a JDM C60 someday and tear that apart as well to compare parts. Someday.... Anyway I hope this information helps

Let's hope not, if you make it fly then you're doing the whole aero thing wrong...

Update "street"

So after a week of driving this thing around on the street, and smashing on it every chance I get...

I LOVE THIS CAR!

I know its still not a high horsepower street machine, but at 2000lbs this thing really moves! It feels similar to the 4.3FD equipped 5 speed but with perfect ratio splits! It was more work than the 4.3FD swap but Im so happy with it, in ANY gear it feels like you have power. I cant wait to race this thing again, and mainly go back to a track and observe the differences.

Here's the thing though: The C60 shift selector has half the weight on it as the C50, AND there is no secondary shift gate like the C50 has(a guide built into the shift selector so you cant mis-shift easily). This results in a very "open" feeling shift pattern, and you need to be direct and on-point when smashing through the gears. A sloppy shift will land you in a gear you were not expecting, so be fore-warned.

So...now that that's all over and done, what's next?

A turbo perhaps...?

I like this idea.

...but I'm not ready yet. I like to test my upgrades for a extended period, like a full autox season.

Maybe next year(2019).
