Went "Camping" down in Amboy, IL this weekend. Little spot called "Woodhaven Lakes". Decided to hit the dirt roads a little bit, and WOW! driving these cars the way they were meant is a freaking blast! Need to find an old Bugeye or something that can take a beating.

On another note, I'm hearing rumors of a Cobb Accessport V3 being released the first week of August. Dunno' about the legitimacy though..

Took a trip to to Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, WI this afternoon.

Three of us went, including a 2012 Honda Civic Si (FB6) and a 2012 VW Golf R.

I'll let the videos do the talking.. Haha!

Taking the car into the Dealership this coming Wednesday. Now that it's getting colder, I'm hearing a consistent squeak upon start up. Goes away when the clutch pedal is depressed. Also felt a slight vibration in the pedal itself the other day. Let's see what happens.

You mean the noise going away when you depress the clutch pedal? Sounds like a throwout bearing if so. Too many trips to the dragstrip

Exactly. The noise disappears after the car warms up, but yes, depressing the clutch pedal quiets it.
Three passes at the track would do that? Dang. Haha.

Just one pass at the drag strip (or anywhere else) can do that if you improperly shockload the clutch/transmission.

A belated welcome to you sir!

Yeah def sounds like a throwout bearing. Certainly covered under warranty but you've gotta think about how you're driving and try to correct things so it doesn't happen again...when you won't be covered anymore. It's def not a cheap fix! Post up what the dealership finds later.

Outside of the drag strip, I don't ever launch the car.
This been an ongoing issue since I bought the car used a few months back.
It's not consistent, but its still there.

Of course, it's quiet now after recording.
