same here...I didn't do too bad in high school (gradded w/ Honours) but in College I fucked up my 2nd year BIGTIME...lot of personal stuff going on coupled with me getting bored of the program, I just ended up dropping out...ended up w/ a nice bundle of F's. I was out for 2 1/2 years and when I went back I couldn't get a student loan, so I worked 2 jobs and went to school full time....ended up getting straight As and got into TRU on my first shot. Now I'm about to start my dream program....and that was w/ ZERO support from parents, student loans, etc...if you have either one of those (or can live at home or something) you've got it made....

I didn't do very good in high school at all. Never failed anything, but got mainly C's. I think upgrading is a huge benefit even if you don't NEED it. I took the Math 11 and 12 equivalents at the college and when I got into Math 140 (calculus), I was at the top of the class, and all the people who came straight from high school math were having serious trouble. It doesn't take very long to upgrade, and it is well worth it in my opinion.

Same. I did the math 12 upgrade and then on to math 114, and it was like night and day who came from 060/061 and who came from high school math. One time the prof ended up with some divide by 0 and made some comment like "... and since we can't do that ..." and one of the straight-from-high-school kids goes "why not?" He was serious too. 1st year calculus and he's never encountered divide by 0 before... unbelievable.

Got the pulse insured for the day. Took a little while to get used to the clutch but after I did, I realized she fucking rips. Not as fast as I was expecting, but decent only pushing 10psi

I think pulling the awd tranny and swapping in fwd will be the next mod due to transfercase issue's

Craig: Do you remember if the transfercase ever made a heavy "houling" sound while excellerating and a slight houling under de-acceleration? I am thinking the transfercase is on its way out. The beggining of the day it seemed fine, but after a few hours it got louder and louder. Mabye the mechanic didnt put oil in the transfercase...? I figure it had enough oil still on the gears but throughout the day it heated up and the bearings started to sieze. I'll check the fluid tomarrow to see whats up. If it is fucked, I guess FWD will be the setup of choice and I can probably sell both AWD tranny's for the price of the swap.

edit: Checked the fluid. Its topped right up.
