Well, as near as I can tell I managed to kill a spec stage 3 in under 20k. The flywheel was resurfaced, and I followed normal break in procedures. Further more, aside from a few burnouts and a dozen hard launches the car had mainly just been a driver!

The pics are not great, but it doesn't look like there is much material left on the pads. Further more the clutch is chattering a lot! And has very weird pedal feel.

What do you guys think? Did I do something wrong? And what clutches have you had better luck with in terms of mileage





Thanks,
Dustin

is the clutch disk a solid hub or a sprung hub?? (a solid hub will not last long on daily driving use). anywayz, as long as the clutch doent slip then it should be OK. and I think that the stage 3's is not that very well for daily driving. also, the type of clutch disk (carbon/kevlar or carbon/carbon) would make it chatter.


aite, peace.

My concern about the chatter is that is there was no chatter last week, then all of a sudden it got really bad!

I'll see if I can take a pic of my disk. I haven't used it yet so it may give you an idea about the life left on your disk.

T.O. bearing

It is interesting that you guys keep bringing this up... I have also had a weird whining noise from the tranny, which also could be that bearing... either way, I guess the motor is getting pulled, and the clutch replaced!

pull the motor and do it that way. its a lot easier if you have to lay down on the ground. but if you have a lift it would'nt be a problem with just removing the trans. :)

that and it's arguably safer IMHO (instead of being possibly crushed by the tranny or car...)

to pull the motor to do the tranny is ass backwards. It is alot of work. I get the damn tranny in and out in a few hours

Hmmm... on the lift I can pull my trans in about 30 mins. On the ground it takes about 45 mins. If you put your car on 4 stands, it's not gonna fall. Really, pulling the trans is much easier.
