Richmond Area

Hi guys. I'm just outside of Richmond in Chesterfield. Had the Big-D for about six months and its time to start having some dialog with some locals who share my new passion.

Also, just put in a Wildman chip yesterday. Seems my clutch was fine with stock power but the chip has shown its weakness. It slips if I get on it in any setting but economy. Anyone know a place local that would put a clutch in that is trusted? I'm hoping this wont be a $1000 deal, but prolly will be in the end. Maybe someone wants some side work? I would love to participate and learn as much as I can.

Thanks in advance - Jason

hey, i'm near chesterfield town center. congrats on the new chip! my buddie had a slipping clutch with a quadzilla flip chip. we did a little trick to help the factory clutch till we had a chance to put in a luk clutch...we took the spring out of the clutch pedal assembly. the clutch got a little stiffer but held on longer.. may be worth a try.. i'm not on here much.. I spend more time on powerstrokenation.com we've been pretty active as far as gtg's and stuff. been having one a month for the last 3 months and are talkin of having one next month already!! shoot me a pm with your info and maybe we can hook up and check out your problem..

PM sent

I ordered a clutch last night...Valair NMU70241-01.... the HD one. Talking to a friend up in NOVA that may want some side work. If anyone local has access to a lift and wants to give up a Sat. afternoon and drink some free beer and make a little on the side, I would love to learn the inner workings of my truck

Thought I read something about another GTG in Harrisonburg in August at a new shop or something. Maybe a dyno there?

Anyway let me know. I just need a week or two to prep the wife on when I'll be gone.

If I remember right it was you posting about the GTG that happened in Harrisonburg. Was that at some kind of shop? Someone was writing about dynoing a BMW or something?

Good deal. If you wanna PM me the info on the GTG, I'll start working on the wifey Also let me know what your going rate for puttin in the clutch. I have one coming, and I'd like to get it in shortly so that I can really use these TW tunes. If my friend in NOVA falls through I may look at making a drive.
