after the feramic install with cut stock fly and act hd plate i went for a ride and......i need to adjust to this clutch since im used to the smooth engagement of the stock disc. this thing is either in or out .the 500 mile breakin will take a bit of time.it was funny to watch me in the d&d drive thru. anyone have any advice on the breakin time and if now will be the time that something will break now the clutch wont be slippin? it seems like the rear thunks hard now with the feramic clutch and the drive shaft has a thunk sound near the rear, or is it both.

That sounds about right. You can speed up the break-in process by spending 15-20 minutes at an empty parking lot engaging and disengaging the clutch for a 3-5 sessions. Basically the whole break-in process is just about seating the surfaces by the way of engagement/disengagement.

The clutch should get a better feel...I am definately not saying it will be a stock-like feel, but it should be much better than what it is at break in.

Hope it works out well for you.


Take Care

Just follow the break in procedure sheet that Chris included in your clutch. The engagement will smooth out eventually but it won't get back to a stock like feel. At least that's how it is with mine after 6-7k miles.

Only thing that I dislike about this clutch is the smoothness when engaging even after break in period. I hate it when I get stuck at a red light at a huge incline hill.

the clutch started to chatter a bit last night[122 total miles so far] and this morning it was gone. the sheet says to slip clutch at 6k rpms to remove the glazing that causes chatter. the feramic also seems rough on the driveshaft /rear even with mild engagement. i even see my shifter wobble in first gear if i dont get that clutch pedal out quick enough. its safe to say when i do get on it eventually i will break something now that the clutch wont slip.??? i just noticed on hpf site they state they ran this clutch with no break in period.what happens if you apply full or near full power with no launches[highway pulls] too early?

If you apply full power without the surfaces being properly seated, there is a chance the clutch will slip and start causing uneven wear on the disk. The risk of seizing also is there when the surfaces are not making full contact along with creating hot spots on the flywheel and/or pressure plate. Break-in is important and true break-in is more influential when you are engaging and disengaging. This is when the surfaces are meshing and starting to even out the disk contact area. But it is also important not to overheat the surfaces while breaking in.

You can make all the highway pulls you want as long as you are easy on the clutch. Slip it easy, and shift easy. As long as it isn't slipping, the clutch will be fine. Of course, you need the low speed slipping of starting off from a stop to get it broken in.
