DILYSI #13: KL to Seremban via Kuala Klawang

Pic 1: Our meet-up point

Another couple of stressful weeks at work were really messing up my mood and life. In these trying times and lack luster economy, I need my speed fix.

Drive It Like You Stole It #13 was organized to take the group from Kuala Lumpur to Seremban via the old roads, i.e. Kuala Klawang. There were 10 cars that joined comprising of:

2 Nissan Skyline ER34
1 Nissan Skyline BNR34
1 Nissan Silvia RPS13
1 Subaru Impreza Sti V-Limited
1 Mazda RX-7 FD3S
1 Toyota SW20 MR2
1 Mitsubishi Evo 8
1 Mitsubishi Evo 6
1 Proton Perdana v6

We meet up at Shell Petrol Kiosk along Jalan Cheras on a very early Sunday morning (7:00am!!). Sorry I was running late. From here, Jason lead us in his Sti all the way to Seremban using the Hulu Langat route joining Sg. Tekali, Titi, Petaling, Kuala Klawang, Pantai and then reaching Seremban town.

Upon departing at Shell, I had a problem with my clutch pedal, after depressing the pedal, it got stuck and wouldn't come back up. Weird.......nevertheless it was ok after some pushing and pumping and the pedal popped back up. Hmmmphh...this gave me a bad vibe about this drive. The initial part of the drive was 'hampered' by crazy amounts of cyclists along the route. Were they practicing for some event or we had crashed into their route? Hehe

After clearing like a hundred cyclists, the drive was truly very exciting and enjoyable, the front runners were pushing hard like mad. I think we were going all out at 9/10th pace. At some point, I had to clock in 200km/h to chase the Scooby. Madness but a whole load of great fun.

Pic 3: The guys sharing driving tales.....LOL

Halfway through, we stopped for breakfast before continuing our journey. Here I encountered the same problem with my clutch pedal. It got stuck and there were no pressure on the pedal. After checking the clutch fluid reservoir, it's empty! The ER34 is leaking clutch fluids via the clutch line! Thank god for Allen to have a spare bottle of clutch fluid around. After topping up the fluids, my pedal is still stuck, looks like my clutch pump got stuck as well. Sakakida had an ingenious idea to prod the cluch pump using my umbrella. It worked, you're a genius bro. LOL :D

Note: I changed my ER34 clutch pump and clutch lines to a R33 unit the day before. Why? Stay tuned for the next blog post update. :P

From here, we head to Jeram Toi waterfalls. This place has changed a bit from the last time were here. They added slides to the waterfall! What the hell! This is the first waterfall I've ever seen with water slides! LOL :D

After hanging out at Jeram Toi for a fair bit, we continued our journey to Seremban to have our lunch at A&W Restaurant. The 2nd part of the drive was not as furious but fun nonetheless. In Seremban town, some of us kinda got lost and ends up going round and round in two roundabouts while waiting for directions. It was hilarious as well and I bet we pissed off a couple folks that are waiting to enter the roundabout. Hahahahaha......

Reaching A&W Restaurant, it's great to see some of the other Skyline owners and zth forummers like semperfi, eyong, wai88, TitanRev, etc....

From here, we called it a day and departed back to Kuala Lumpur via the North-South Expressway. It was great driving with you guys again. Till the next drive.....
