Just throwing this out there because it's usually nothing but problems and I think some are reading the forum and thinking these cars are nothing but problem.
So I'm running the original clutch which had the recall done from the factory, original belt, original starter (and it's the bad one) and so far everything is working just fine. Granted, I may not drive as hard as some do but I don't baby it either. Catch a little air here and there, blast some whoops and haul through the desert. No dunes yet but looking forward to Glamis before the year is over.
As of now I've got 309 miles at 21.4 hours. Probably jinxed myself now but we'll see. Not much riding to do in this heat anyhow.

So how about hearing from others who are trouble free. It'll be a good break from the gloom and doom!

I've got zero problems as well. It hasn't left my garage though, except twice to blast up and down the road. All the problems you hear about on this forum have me a little uneasy as well. I will be taking it to dunefest at the end of the month and I hope that I am trouble free like yours has been.

desertdog, how many miles did you have on your ride before you swap the primary for QSC?

I think I have 800 ish miles on mine with no clutch, tie rod, starter issues. I DID find a metal pin in my oil during the 10 hour service and blew a belt at 400 miles. But I run my shit hard and aint afraid to fix it with duct tape and tie wire.

I can vouch for that...lol, freakin nut!

I got 750 on mine with 1 bent tie rod (driver error), and 1 blown belt (driver abuse). If I break anything else...I'll fix that too
