Talking to the doc he's up for another Dr Evil's Tranny Clinic in Canada at my place in central Ontario.
Right now we are thinking of late spring/ early summer. If after the May Two-Four the weather should be good enough for camping. The last clinic was mid June and we had perfect weather.

These clinics are huge fun, you get to walk away with a freshly rebuilt transmission and you get to meet many of our 914world brothers.

Price and details will be basically the same as the last clinic I hosted back in 2013.

Hi Matt

Read the details of the last clinic I hosted, link in the first post, I don't think there's much I can add that isn't already covered in that thread.

Only difference is the recommendation of new bearings which I sell at a deep discount (<50% retail). Also, anyone interested in going should contact me with details of their transmission issues so I can plan accordingly. We can figure out what I need to bring.

Ian brought them from Moncton, 18 hour trip one way, doubt he'll be willing just to bring you lobster. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Since I was at the original, I don't think my trans needs work so I wouldn't be signing up.

However, I'd probably drop by if I wouldn't be in the way.

Spectators are free, but we'll probably put you to work (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

This is basically 6 months away and we already have 2 students.

Glad to see some familiar faces. Need to get Beevus and Buthead on board with this, too.

I was on the previous clinic, my tranny is smooth and precise. Had a ball, Mark is a great host, had so much fun, met a great bunch of guys. Bottom line, your transmission will appreciate you taking it to a Dr Evil clinic. Be ready for in depth cleaning, Mike is very strict!

I'm definitely interested. I'd be flying in from the San Francisco area so probably wouldn't bring a tranny, but happy to pay the full tuition.

I'd camp at the site. A place in the motorhome would be nice. Would be nice to not have to schlep a tent in my luggage.

I'm an long time autocrosser, but gearing up to start doing track events. I've rebuilt two boxes myself already with no major problems, but interested in improving my technique and knowledge. My interest is is building track trannys, so I'm interest in subjects like:
- gear ratio selection
- tips about swapping gear ratios
- 904 input shafts for non-standard 2nd gears
- installing/adjusting limited slip differentials
- checking pinion/ring gear alignment
- judgement in inspecting worn parts (i.e. what's ok to reuse, what should be tossed.)
- modifications to accept more horsepower (alum. intermediate plate?)
- information on the known weak points in the 901 (what breaks first when you start racing these things)
- use of 915 gearbox in 914

Exact schedule will impact my ability to come, so the sooner you can set a date the easier it will be for me to finalize plans.

Fantastic to see this happening. Just what I need!
