Togo Posted February 3, 2007 Share Posted February 3, 2007 This is my first "fast car" (some of you would argue i'm sure)and my first hi performance clutch that i actually have some seat time behind.several weeks ago while downshifting on the freeway, i noticed that the RPMs just went nuts and the car didn't go anywhere - i let off and it caught (i was thinking it was slipping due to my bald tires)it happened again today on the way home from hooters.so i paid attention to my DIC and there were no traction issues, so my first thought is that the clutch is giving way.it doesn't do it all the time - just in the "powerband" when downshifting and getting on the throttle.it doesn't do it at startup, but i'm sure a few of you have heard me clamor about clutch chatter on my car the chatter isn't even as bad now, so i'm a bit worried - any tell tale signs?any ways to test besides what i'm doing?for the record it's a Spec III - i'm sure some of you preach these things, and you have your reasons, but with only 5000 miles and half a dozen drag launches and 2 "burnouts" at the strip - this clutch has seen nowhere near what i think it's useful life should be (unless i'm sadly mistaken!)so....do tell!
