    Yeah, its me.

    I drove to work today basically without a clutch. There was apparently enough fluid in the reservoir so that i could put the clutch on the floor and BARELY keep the car idling. I guess all the playing around with rev matching really paid off today. I only had to turn the engine off once, and thats when i figured out that i had no clutch.

    When i finally made it to work the morning, i checked the master cylinder and this is what i saw:

    Yeah. bad morning...but still made it to work on time (I didnt have my cell phone so i couldnt call work. if i had it, i would have stopped and got some fluid and fixed my problem).

    Formby ?


    Yeah, and driving with no fluid isn't too hard. Shut the car down at stops :)

    Got your heel-toe practice in though, right ?

    I drove 20 miles on 1/4 of my clutch in the Escort once.

    I let it out, heard a boom and the car suddenly felt sluggish. Can't believe I made it home.

    werd, ive never heel-toed in rush hour...definitely wouldnt do it in a protege (brakes are funny in this car). I only had to shut it down the one time. I was pretty proud of myself. Just enough fluid to let the car idle with the clutch in.
