Project : Go Faster Part 2 - Driveline

This thread isn't so much for questions just sharing what I'm doing as far as this goes..

Checked out the rear of my car - all depths, backlash, drag, etc are good - no abnormal metal flakes or noises, refilled rear and going to stick with this for now, sounds like a lot of people have had decent luck with the stock axles on the 05+ compared to the previous gen

Once I roasted the clutch (it has all the pedal feel of a toyota now, and I can let the clutch out in 5th while stopped and car won't die right away ) I decided I would upgrade while trans is out..

Here's what I've got so far:

-Newest part # GT500 TR6060 (better snychros/etc than 07s)
-New 'take off' parts (leftovers from Steeda) Ford GT500 short throw shifter (same as on KR edition) shifter knob/rod/bezel and pins
-GT500 mount

Here's what I've got on the way:
-McLeod RST 26 spline setup/lightened steel flywheel
-GT500 driveshaft (lightly used, under 500 mi.. found a guy that went aluminum and wants it gone)

Only things I need to get:
Trans fluid
Reverse lockout harness

Should be in the car 1st week I'm back from NJ (first or 2nd weekend in march)

For those who are familiar with the car, reflash and a little TB work bumped the WHP up a little.. It'll need a bottom end eventually but it's hanging in there for now

Slight driveline vibration above 40 MPH, not terrible but I think it's related to the shorter driveshaft + lowered car.. Going to try indexing the shaft, if that doesn't work I'm going to change the pinion angle

First impressions are the 6 speed feels awesome

You need to drive the escort and get used to those sounds and vibrations. Anything else you hear or feel is nothing compared to that car :P

Quick driveline update...

Replaced bent axle no more wheel wobble or brake caliper squeak while driving..

While in there, I went with a set of 4.10 FRPP gears, as the TR6060 has a wide first/second compared to the TR3650 that's no longer in the car

Only problem is now at track I have to hit 4th before trap, otherwise it was a great upgrade.
