Just spent an unexpected hour, or so, in a parking lot keeping Kevin company. You see, Kevin just toasted his clutch with a whopping 4500 miles on it!!?! Admittedly, he has been to the drag strip from time-to-time, but you would think it would have taken a bit more abuse. The local WRX crowd gets about 25000 miles when autocrossing regularly. I am thinking that his clutch must have been out of adjustment from day one. Either that, or it is just defective.

Glad it´s not mine. I would want a bit more for my 30 large.

As long as they don´t find out that he ran it at the track. Hopefully he didn´t do that during the break in period, too. :-o

Kevin is not the sharpest tool in the shed, apparently. Within the first three weeks of ownership, Kevin took the car to Las Vegas (a long, long way from Louisiana) and used the 1200 miles, or so, for the break-in period. As soon as he got back, he was racing it. I am not sure when he first took it to the strip, but it didn´t take long. He indicated, last night, that the dealership knew he had been to the strip. Whether he told them, or they found out via the grapevine, I do not know, but that would certainly constitute a warranty violation, if they wanted to be prickish about it.

This is not the first "episode" Kevin has had, actually. It seems that about two weeks ago, Kevin was washing his car. When he was done, he decided to take the car for a spin to air dry it. (To hear Kevin tell it is a hoot, by the way.) As he is driving along, he notices in the rear view mirror that the water bubbles are cruising along the rear wing (or "fin," as he calls it). So completely entertained by the bubbles is Kevin, that the car eases left into the rather daunting curb on the left side of the street. Needless to say, the Enkei´s on the left side of the car are pretty thrashed, as is the corner of the spoiler. The curb even sheared off the wheel weights. Some people just don´t deserve good shit, do they?

The funny part is that he was going in for his first oil change today, anyway. I can just here it now, "Hey, boys, I´m here for my oil change. Throw in some o´ that good ol´ Mobil 1, and, oh, yeah, how ´bout a new clutch, while you´re at it?" This is gonna be good.

I have no idea who "Kevin" is but anyone who beats the crap out of a new car and it´s drivetrain like that deserves to have stuff break. Just goes to show you there are some people with no sense of what goes on inside an engine/transmission and clutch assembly when it is new. My apologies if this ticked off one of his friends, but the way I see it, he got exactly what he asked for - he just didn´t realize he asked for it.
