Yeah I do rev match, I find it a bit challenging rev matching in corners especially if the weather is bad. I find that if I let the clutch slip in gradually while applying a bit of throttle it's preferable to dropping it suddenly that's the point I think I was trying to make.

Good call though!

Truth + Essential. My biggest pet peeve is when people downshift without revmatching. It always sounds painful.

Bolt out, bolt in. Not sure why everyone makes it sound so difficult.

it's 19 - 4 for the driveshaft, 6 for each half shaft, and 3 for the diff mounts, IIRC. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Not at all hard though.
