So I've been gone from the forums for a while (which wasn't a bad thing since as you all know we spend way to much time here) because my new house was finally built and I moved in. It had taken me a since april to sell my condo and have this house built. The time actually flew by and I finally get to do all the man things I haven't been able to do at the condo... I.E. car stuff. Now onto the bad......


My brother came up about 3 weeks ago, about a week before moving into the house, and I drove to my folks house to suprise him and my mum who weren't expecting me. I was there maybe an hour before my brother skanked my keys and tried to steal my car for a drive. I managed to jump in the back of the car with my dad in the from passenger side. I told him some simple rules such as not getting on it until 3k and not luanching it hard ( no diff mounts yet). Well we were on just a country road where he got it up to 120 mph when I preceded to start yelling at him to slow the F down.

He turn the car around and starts heading back towards my folks house. About 100 feet from the driveway we were going about 65ish he decides to throw it into second gear for some stupid ass reason and all I heard was a pop and the smell of clutch. He said the peddle went limp right down to the floor. I wanted to kill him, it's not like it was his first time driving, I would normally consider him a better driver than me too. He is after all the older brother.

Well with what tools I did have at my folks house I managed to do some work to see if I could fix the problem. I changed the slave cylnder, and bled the clutch with no gain.


Soooooo long story short my clutch and transmission are shot. I'm not sure what the hell he did to my baby since I was sitting in the back, so I have to take his word for it. It's been at a mechanic up in Backwoodsville with some guy named "Cliff" who my parents say does good work. I have no idea what shape she's gonna come back in. To make matter worse I had just gotten my AP two days earlier....just my luck. I finally get into my house but I've got no car to enjoy putting in my garage. At least I don't have to pay for all the work....

Ah fuck dude, that sucks. Sorry to hear that man. I want to kick your brother's ass! Didn't your brother drive your car like a jackass one other time as well? I swear I remember reading a looong time ago that he was driving it, and he was launching it or something you told him not to iirc. Beat on my speed6 once, shame on you....
Is he paying for the repairs? He damn well better be. Damn, sorry to hear that bro.

On a more positive note, congrats on the new house!! That's awesome and trumps any car 10x. I'm glad that it's finished and you're moved in. Haven't heard from your punk ass in a while. Lemme know if you need a couple thugs from Boston to come up there and stomp a new mud-hole in your older brother's ass! lol

Keep us posted as to what's going on. I don't know if I'd trust hillbilly Cliff....

haha thank Doug I knew you would understand the woes of another fellow speed6er. He is paying for the repairs thank god, so who knows what that cost is going to be. Maybe 5 grand? who knows what Ole cliffy wants I guess. Depending on how this turns out I might sell it this spring. Which would suck since I feel like i'm just barely figuring this thing out. Anyone want a speed6 gt for $15k? haha


Daztd: He is my older brother and he is 28.

If he's picking up the tab, and it gets fixed "right," don't sell it. What are you going to buy for $15K? What a bummer dude... Was I wrong, or didn't he do some stupid shit another time? Launching it or something? What is he driving anyways??! lol

ya he was launching it hard last time too, and remember I didn't give him the keys this time. He literally stole the keys from me that day. Total bull shit.

I wouldn't buy a car for 15k that is just my pay off on it at the moment LOL. I'm sure you've had thoughts of selling when you got seriously frustrated. It's mostly me just being pissed off. As soon as I get it back and get to play with the AP I'll be happy. I didn't even get to do some datalogging!!!!

I thought that's what happened! Sucks about him ganking the keys. Dude, I was ready to part out this heap awhile back, lol. I had problem after problem... small weird shit that never happens.... just had a bad luck cloud over my head for a few months there. My car has been down for 2 months now, and hopefully, HOPEFULLY my fuel pressure will be back tomorrow w/ all new CPE pump that went in today. I'll know at 11am tomorrow... been a long too months brotha!

i haven't had her in about 3 weeks. I don't know how the hell I was able to drive around so slow before. I've got my dad's truck for the time being. It's been really handy to have with the move in and all the crazy man shit I've had to do.

On a side note anyone have any tips on growing a lawn? Is there a forum for home ownership? LOL

Sorry about your brother messing up the car but glad he's paying for it. There are plenty of forums about lawns man........its kind of scary.
