Default Stage 3 clutch doesn't just drive like stock...

It drives hella better than stock. The clutch is actually lighter than the stock one. I thought the slave cylinder died when i first pressed the clutch, but it was just that easy. Took it around the block after my 1 day install and the Stage 3 clutch + new TOB + new TOB fork + new pivot ball = sexyness.

Ya know john half my mods are from your company just about.


Question: Break in period, what are the numbers? Thanks.

500 is recommended then a schedule of pulls going from 4th down to 2nd or so for next 500.

i did a 500 then i started some lite boosted pulls in 4th for about 100 then some harder ones in in 3rd for about 150miles then after that i had some fun at 28+psi. it held with no problems. I have had it in for 6000 miles and it never has slipped one time no matter how hard i have ran it.

500 miles of stop and go is normally pretty good. What you want is the clutch to break in with no heat but putting the power to it. Stop and go's are the only real way to get the off the line broken in but the freeway pulls work well for the final seat.

So here is how it goes:

Stop and go through town for a day or 2 (500 miles if you can)
The power on it in 4th gear, if there is no slip do that for around a week (free way pulls in 4th work the best)
After that you can move down to 3rd gear then 2nd gear.

If at anytime is slips the clutch you have to start over. Reason for this is if the clutch slips it will glaze the frictions. When that happens it takes a lot of stop and go to get the glaze off the disk. Hope this helps and you will be very happy for many many miles with your set up.

Thanks for the information. I'm getting more used to it now. It grabs really nice. I do notice a little bit of chatter when i go from a stop at really low rpms but it is not bad at all. Great feeling clutch all around.

Now i just need a sst or bigger to take full use of the clutch. the spending... it never ends!

Yes the spending never ends, trust me I know.

Sounds good just keep us up todate on when its all broken in and adding power will be easy.

So once u do the 500miles, how many 4th gear pulls should I do in a week? 3rd? 2nd? Just wanna break it in right the first time, Thanks

Stop and go driving will break in quicker then anything.

This is what we do if we need break in done ASAP.

30 4th gear pulls then cool
30 3rd gear pulls then cool
30 4th gear pulls then cool
30 3rd gear pulls then cool
Now try a few 2nd gear pulls, did is slip??? If so then start over. Cooling periods are up to 30 minutes between pulls. You can in one week have a clutch broken in all the way.

Stage 4 is great if you don't run slicks. We have welded the disk to the PP 3 times now, when leaving the gate on spray.

Stage 5 is the shit though. TOB fork is a must and we have the new ductile iron unit in stock.
