Bianca Miata - Transmission & Clutch

As mentioned on my fluids page, synthetic fluid ruined my synchros, so I had to get a new transmission. I got a new-to-me used transmission with 59K kms on it, to replace my 141K km transmission with fried 3rd gear synchro.

1.8L Clutch
I had the clutch replaced at 141K as well, since I felt it was starting to go. I was somewhat suprised when the clutch was taken out, and we saw that it was worn past the rivets, to the point of wearing a groove in the pressure plate. I upgraded to the 1.8L clutch, and have noticed quite the difference. I really like it, but it'll take some getting used to.
