Arjun Soundararajan, owner of Atlanta based UUC Motorwerks, has generously created a contingency program for SE SpecE30.
-Random drawing for $75 UUC Gift Certificate. Must have UUC decals on both L and R sides of your car to get the certificate. Out of region types are eligible as long as they have the decals. I always have decals with me at the track.
-“UUC Welcomes you to SpecE30” $75 gift certificate. This is for newbies on their first race weekend. UUC decals are not required, only newbyness is required.
-Redemption of the gift certificate. The gift certificate will have a code on it that, when entered on UUC’s web site, will result in $75 credit.
UUC sells a variety of maintenance and SpecE30 compliant go-fast items. This includes PFC and Hawk brake pads, H&R Springs, a variety of suspension reinforcement bits, their own sway bar design, wheelspacers and studs, Schroth harnesses, of course their highly respected shifters and the “dual shear shift rod” (DSSR).
IMO, the single greatest thing that you can do to remove shifter slop, is not a short shift kit, nor replacing every single wear item in your shift linkage and carrier. The single greatest thing you can do to remove slop in your shifter is to install a UUC DSSR because it replaces the ovalized pins in the shifter rod, and it doesn’t use little plastic washers, nor flexy clips. Even replacing your shifter with one of the systems that bolts to your tranny tunnel and does away with the shift carrier is still going to have slop unless you swap out your OEM design shift rod with a DSSR.
Sure, you read this now and think to yourself “dang, did Gress join their marketing dept?” But once you get the DSSR you’re gonna be saying “Haleluah Ranger Gress, I have seen the light.”
