TKO Faceplate, Soft Lok Report

So I finally got the car together. Roughly 5 days sooner than I had expected. Here's what I did:

Liberty's Gears treatment of my TKO
Pro 5.0 Shifter
McLeod Soft Lok
Re-work of the carb by CSU

All I can say is WOW! The trans shifts instantly, the car idles crisp and clean, throttle response is great, and the clutch will take a little getting used to. It's amazing how the car feels. The shifter is about 3" closer to me now, so that's a whole lot nicer, especially with the more solid feel of the Pro 5.0 shifter and shorter throws thanks to it. The trans 'clunks' now when I shift, but that was to be expected. Even low rpm power shifts are simple. I feel zero resistance when pulling a gear. I can't wait to see how the car does off the line and at the track. I'm getting out to Irwindale this week. Hope to see my fellow Nova guys there.

Aron, here's the vid I got last nite, 1st and 3rd pass.

Sorry it's not better quality.

Rob's just a good guy and gave me advice. Talk about great customer service.
